There is damage/burnt at Transistor Q4 or Q3 or both. Usually followed by R8. Replace it.
Q3 = BC337 (SMD marked as 6C) NPN.
Q4 = BC327 (SMD marked as 5A/B/C/D) PNP.
R8 = 470 ohm (SMD marked as 471).

I have had to service Many zoom pedals over the years, they are designed to fail.... the best unit ever was the original 505, anyways if it powers up there is hope, you can try electronics spray contact cleaner on every button and this might clear it up, hope this helps?

Can the zoom g2g plug straight into a speaker cabinet

No. You will need to use an amplifier, home stereo, P.A.etc. I would recommend insertion in an effects loop if your amp has one.

I have a Zoom G2, It has excessive noise. It has the correct power supply and I tried powering it with batteries, but it still produces the loud distorted noise. It worked fine the last time I used it. ...

Check if it might be an intermittent input or output jack by wiggling these. Jackks are notorious for problems. Often the soldering of the jack to the circuit board seperates causing noise.
