Might need to have the flash replaced or it could be the hot shoe detection switch in the camera, it might think you are using an external flash when you are not. Try going to this site: www.camerasandparts.com. They only service powershots and they'll help you if you have a problem with one of these. If you need to have it serviced, they are terrific and about half the price of many shops. Hope that helps get you in the right direction anyway.

Try going into the main menu and select the "Restore to factory defaults" option. This should solve your problem.

Why won't my powershot a1200 flash work?


Have you enabled the flash function in the camera menu? Look for a menu item that says something like Internal Flash and follow that through

G9 build in flash does not work but external flash will works on my canon g9.


Most of the time you just need to have the flash replaced on the camera. Of course it could be something else. I would say to email them at www.camerasandparts.com They have a service package for your G9 which will fix the problem no matter what is causing it, plus they service up the whole camera for you at the same time. They do top-notch work on these cameras and are much less than most places since they're service packages are a flat-rate.

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.

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.

Canon G9 Flash not firing and not able to find flash on the menu


Assuming there's not really a fault on the camera. Have you got it dialed into a pre-set photo option ? This may negate the flash. Suggest going through the settings menu, putting everything to auto and trying again.

My powershot G9 built in flash is not working


There is a switch on the hot shoe to detect the external flash. When you use an external flash, the switch will be pressed down, then the unit will bypass the internal flash and won’t let it fire. If the little switch gets stuck somehow, you won’t get your internal flash on.
Check this switch on the hot shoe (either on the left side or the right side), blow some compressed air then plug/unplug an external flash several times. Hopefully you can get it back

G9 flash


In your display, is the small lightning symbol appear on the screen? Try cycling through the various flash options by pressing the "flash" lightning symbol to the right of the monitor. If the flash is set to flash when there's not enough light at the G9's descretion (with an "A" next to the symbol) then the flash may or may not go off. I oftentimes set the flash to go off all the time if the camera is not doing it automatically (with the A next to the symbol). Being in Auto mode versus the other preset exposure modes affect the flash options available too.
