Question about Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Hi i have a canon G9 and all of a sudden it won't turn on.  it's not a battery problem since i changed the battery and it still won't turn on.  it's dead.  doesn't do anything when i press the on/off button.  any ideas as what it could be? Same damn problem. I wason the caribbean island of St. John for a wedding and the evening before the wedding, the camera would not come on. I thought it was the battery, even though it was fully charged and I never had a problem with the battery, and so I search all over the island looking for this battery. Unfortunately, I was unsuccessful finding a new battery and had to forgo pictures for the wedding and the rest of the trip. Icame back to the mainland and ordered a new replacement battery,but that did nothing to power the camera. Like just about every one else, my warranty expired about 5 months ago. I am still calling Canon and seeing what they will do for me. This is just not right. I could understand if I abused the camera, but that is not the case. They better step up to the plate on this problem, or I will be livid. John P. Moroney

Not a solution, but I am too facing the same issue. I only have to add that I did in fact buy a brand new battery straight from Canon thinking it was a battery issue. I fully charged the new battery, put it in the camera, it ran for about 10 minutes and then it would not come on again. This is crazy considering how much this camera cost. I hope Canon stands by its product on this one.

IS there a reset button on the bottom of the camera? Sony cameras have these and it helped me at one time. If the re is still no power, then an internal SMT fuse blew and it will require service, Not a bad camera to get fixed, but itll be a flat rate of 180.00 or so. I can fix these cheap or no charge if I cant, let me know pishta68 at hotmail dot com

My G9 wont open the battery is charged


When my former wife arrived from a European trip, she was very upset because suddenly the Canon G9 I had lent her wouldn't open. It was right before Christmas too. I immediately went on line and found Cameras and Parts which was highly recommended by others. After having an unproductive conversation with Canon in which they claimed their was not a general problem with the G9, I contacted Cameras and Parts. I'm happy to report that the camera was fixed in no time and cost about half of what Canon wanted - plus it was refurbished and works great. So you might try Cameras and Parts.

Suddenly my G9 won`t start at all. Battery is fully charged


More than likely, your camera has a short from some loose screws inside. A lot of these G9's get this problem.
You get it fixed, it's $89 all in at: www.CamerasAndParts.com
The great thing with that site is they just service the Canon Powershots exclusively and they totally know these cameras. They include the parts, the labor, the service for the camera, the no power correction included, and even the shipping back. It costs $89 for everything with them and they do excellent work on the Powershots.
Good luck with it. If you need help with a Powershot, they're the place for one of these models!

Canon PowerShot G9 stopped working this morning. It simply will not switch on. I charged batteries, tried another battery pack. Nothing happened. I hope you can help. I've only had the camera two...


A common problem on the G9 is they get a loose screw inside and often it renders the camera useless with no power after that common short. There's a site you can get these fixed very reasonably and they include the correction to those internal screws so it won't keep happening. The site is: www.camerasandparts.com The do superb work on the canons for about half of what canon wants to fix these cameras. Good luck with the problem on yours.

Hi, my canon g9 powershot, suddenly stopped


The best place for service for the Powershots is: www.camerasandparts.com They only specialize in service and repairs for the Powershots and they know their stuff, they're amazing if you need service for one of these models. They don't have any service package for a powershot for over $100 including the repair, plus the service for the camera, and even the shipping back. Try them, they do amazing work and that's where most people head for service for the Powershots, good luck

Canon g9 won't turn on...battery is fully charged....mysteriously stopped working.


These cameras short out inside from a loose screw. The place that a lot of people go for help with this problem is www.camerasandparts.com They just work on the Canon powershot models and they are wonderful for service, about half the cost of most place for about twice the service. The nice thing about them is they do a fix inside the camera so the screw problem won't happen again. They're the place for help with these, lots of luck with it.

Will not turn on, and battery is good


Lots of people go through this on the G9. Certain screws inside often come loose inside and short out the camera leaving it with no power. A great place to service these is: www.camerasandparts.com All they work on are the Canon Powershots and they do excellent work. It's $89 through them for the parts / labor to fix this, and they service up the camera at the same time when it's being repaired, plus they cover the shipping going back. On the G9's, they also do some correction inside the camera so that the screws don't come loose again inside and cause this problem. If you need to have it fixed, they're the place for this G9 problem.

Go with this place: www.camerasandparts.com They are about half of what Canon charges and they do awesome work on the Canon Powershots. All they specialize in are the Canons, they do really great work and they are so much less than Canon on the service.

MY G9 IS NOT POWERING ON


It's a common problem with the loose screws on the G7 and the G9 cameras. The camera needs to be serviced since it likely blew a fuse when it shorted. The site that's really good for help with these is: www.camerasandparts.com They just service the powershots and they are less than most places charge. They do wonderful work but the best part is they do the correction for these problem on all G9's they work on so the problem doesn't keep happening. That's where a lot of people go for help with this problem. Good luck with yours.
