Your best bet would be to have it serviced by a professional to get you going again, those are really excellent cameras. If you'd like to have it repaired, you can have the G9's repaired here: www.camerasandparts.com This place just does the Canons exclusively, they don't work on any other models. The best part, the work through them is superb and they are not expensive at all. It runs $89 for parts / labor on the repair and the servicing for the camera included. Plus they cover shipping back which we like. The best part is the work through them just excellent on the Canons, they'd be the place if you want to have it fixed. Hope that helps you with it, all the best. That's a great little camera.

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

hi would you tell me more about condition? does it power on, do you see back of lcd any message, if power on, then you have lens unit is defective. no power at all, then you have either power control pcd(dc/dc convoertor) or main pcb. If main fail, then you have to send canon factory. but lens unit or power pcb problem can solve in your local repair shop. They would chage you around $65 to 165 depend on what they really want to charge. Thanks and best regard!

This G9 problem is really common. These cameras develop a problem with screws coming loose inside and causing a short in the camera. The place that a lot of people go for help with this problem is: www.camerasandparts.com They just work on the Canon Powershot cameras and nothing else and they do excellent work. The best part with them is that they do a correction inside the camera so the problem won't keep happening. They service the whole camera up and include the shipping going back, it comes to $89 with them. The work quality through them can't be touched, they are the place if you have a Canon. I hope that helps some. Good luck with the problem.

I got the Canon Power Shot G9 camera for almost 3years . It has been running well. But last month, somehow I could not operate it. It is not battery issue. At first I thought the battery was so old, so I...


The Canon G9 has a design defect, two screws fall out inside the camera and short out the fuse. If you've never had it fixed for no power before this is most likely what has happened to your camera.

Do a Google search for "canon g9 no power repair" and you will see a full repair service including return shipping of your camera for just $85.

Hope this helps!

My Cannon G9 digital camera wont power up even though I have a fully charged battery?


This is usually from a loose screw inside the camera, a screw inside the camera can come loose and cause a short which is very common on the G9. If you go to: www.camerasandparts.com all they deal with is service for the Canon Powershots. They're great if you need a hand with one of these and they automatically do the no power correction on the G7's and the G9's they service which is nice. They are about the least expensive out there at $89 and they include the service and the shipping back. The best part, they do excellent work which is a must for me. Hope that helps you some.
