The reason it won't work is because when you went in to fix it, you shorted out the flash. That's what the flash was that you saw when you reconnected it to the main board. It's best not to open these and try to work on them yourself. There are steps to take when servicing electronics and it sounds like you forgot to drain the capacitor first. I'd suggest to go this site and see if they can help you www.camerasandparts.com They're very knowledgable with the Canon cameras and I'm sure they can get working just right again or maybe they can tell you the part you need to fix what you did when you were working on it.
Not sure what the problem is as your question is not complete. Try the site: www.camerasandparts.com They specialize in all canon powershot problems and nothing else at all. All G9 problems are there if you need help. Look under their complete service and repair. Common things on your model are no power, lens errors and a flash problem. Whatever is going on with your camera, they'd be the place to get help. Hope that is helpful.
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
Go to the menu for the camera and look for "SAVE". you should have the choice in which format to save the pictures. Select "RAW" and then exit the menu. The camera should now save in RAW format. Some one or something probably switched the setting (such as reset camera).
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.
