This is probably the loose screw thing that many of the G9 cameras go through at some point. Here's a place that specializes in these models www.camerasandparts.com This is where a lot of people go for service on the Canons. The work with them is excellent and they are very reasonable as far as the price for their service packages.

Hi

The problem with the Canon Powershot G9 is that there are two small screws that work themselves loose over time and then fall out of their holes inside the camera. These screws bounce around until they cause the fuse to blow and then the camera no longer powers.

You need to have the fuse replaced, or you can replace the DC/DC board much more easily, and then replace the screws and secure them with something like 'Locktite 242' so that they don't pop out again.

We are an actual digital camera repair shop, and can do this repair for you! All you do is go to our site and enter "G9" into the search box. The first result should be the "No Power Repair" for only $90 which also includes the return shipping of the camera to you!

I hope this helps, and if we can help with your repair please let us know.

Camera won't turn on. Flashes red and orange lights by the view finder and blue at the s button. Battery is fully charged. Just use the camera the other day and it worked fine


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 two year old Canon G9 was working fine. I took the battery out to recharge it and now it won't power on - as if the battery is completely dead.


A great place to get help with these G9 no power problems is: www.camerasandparts.com
They just specialize in the service for the Canon Powershot models and they are very familiar with this specific problem. The nice thing with them is for $89, you get everything included in their service package for the G9, all parts / labor, shipping back and the service for the camera too. The best part, they include the no power correction to the internal screws for all of the G9's they service. If you need a hand, www.camerasandparts.com is the place for service on these. The work is excellent and their pricing and knowledge of these cameras is what I liked.

Canon G9 will not power on. It was working fine last Saturday morning, then in the evening it just would not power on. Tried on Sunday morning and it worked for a few hours. Now It stopped wroking again...


These cameras have a common fault with screws that come loose inside and cause a short. If you need to have it fixed, try this site: www.camerasandparts.com They specialize in the Canon Powershot cameras only and don't work on any other models. They are completely familiar with the problem that you are experiencing. The neat thing with them is it's only $89 for everything: they cover parts regardless of what is causing the camera not to turn on, the labor is included, they include the servicing for the camera, and the shipping back too. Pretty tough to beat and they do excellent work on the Powershots. Canon wants much more for repairing this, the site I gave you is a great alternative to Canon and their work is Superb! Best of luck with the problem.

My Canon Powershot G9 suddenly stopped working yesterday. It's just stuck with the lens extended. I've checked and the battery is OK. Nothing's working..no LCD screen, won't switch on or off etc.


This is a really common problem on the G7 and the G9. They get no power all of a sudden when two screws from inside the camera get loose and cause a short. It's not a cleaning as was suggested, your camera actually needs to be repaired. There's a great shop that only specializes in service for the the Canon Powershot cameras and they have this exact fix on their site. They charge $89 for everything. That takes care of parts, labor, the services for the G9, return shipping and they give you a pretty good warranty on the whole camera once it's been serviced. The cool thing with them is they do the correction to the two screws inside the G7's and the G9's that causes this no power problem. Here is the site where you can have it serviced: www.camerasandparts.com Everything comes out to $89 and they are awesome for service on the Canon Powershots. I hope this helps, all the best with it.

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.

No power?


You just need to have the camera serviced for this no power problem. This is common on the G9 but there's a correction that can be done so this problem never happens again. It has to do with two loose screws in the camera that can result in a short and no power on the G7 and the G9 cameras. If you go to: www.camerasandparts.com they specialize in Service for the Canon Powershots and they are amazing if you need service for one of these. They actually have this exact fix available on their site for your model so you can get it taken care of for very little and have the camera serviced up completely at the same time. Try that site, that's where a lot of people go for help with the Powershots, good luck with it.

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.
