Re: Canon powershot g9

I too am having the same issue with mine but instead of turning off it stays on but will not display anything except the hud interface. It will not show anything when in camera mode.

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 G9 has E16 error message-won't turn on

The likely has a short that is causing that E16 Error Code. Since it likely needs a part replaced, you can try this site: They'll fix any Powershot problem, these are the only models they work on. They are about half the price of Canon for Service and they do excellent work. They exclusively do the Canon Powershot cameras only, they're the guys if you need help with a problem on one of these cameras.

Manual mode

I presume that when you select Manual Mode you are then selecting a suitable aperture and speed and ISO to give you a correct exposure? If you are then I guess this is a problem for Canon to sort out.
Sorry if I'm teaching you to **** eggs - trouble is on a site like this we have no idea of the skills of the operator - you may be a novice - but I suspect you know how to go about it and have no need for this obvious response - anyway, good luck!!

Canon g9 image size

Are you looking at multiple pictures in the play mode? If so select one image and you should go back to the standard method of right and left clicking the dial. The mode your in you can use the scroll wheel to breeze through images.

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.

While I can't be specific for your camera the "Palm" sign normally indicates that "Anti-shake stabilisation" is operational and although you can normally turn it off it is preferable not to as it improves the quality of your recording especially when using long zoom.
