    I recently purchased a new G9. Installed the software. I successfully downloaded pictures a number of times using photoshop. However recently when I have connected the camera to the PC the message "Windows does not recognise the device appears" and it is not possible to see the camera as an external drive on Windows Explorer. I have tried the camera on another PC and got the same message.

Canon G9 wont power up.

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 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.

My canon G9 will not read my card and will not format.

Not sure what the problem is as your question is not complete. Try the site: 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.

Hi, my canon g9 powershot, suddenly stopped

The best place for service for the Powershots is: 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 Powershot A300 on XP

Its best start again, completely remove the current drivers you have installed and do a restart.

Now shutdown the PC and plug the camera to your PCs using the USB lead and turn the camera on & set to USB mode. Start your PC and login as usual - XP should pick up your camera automatically.

If it still doesnt pick it up you might want to update XP to atleast SP2 or try another USB lead.

If this helps please vote..thankyou and good luck!

Canon g9 camera doesnt work in raw only jpeg

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: 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.
