Remove the memory card from the camera. Note that there is a small slide switch on one of the long edges of the card. Slide the switch to unlock or lock the card.

SOURCE: canon g9 is reading 'no memory card'

Have you tried blowing air in the memory card part of the camera? Might be dirty! If that doesn't work, look for a repair shop, a popular one for the Canon Powershot cameras is since they only work on the powershots. They tend to be the place if you need help with one of these. They don't charge much at all and they do all the service on the camera too. Go to that site and you'll see they have your specific problem posted right there for your G9. Good luck with it.

SOURCE: Canon G9 - camera went dead - battery is good - no

Camera was probably shorted out by a common loose screw problem on this model. If you go to: 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 no power problem on their site for your model so you can get it taken care of for very little and have the camera serviced up completely. They also include the correction so this problem never comes back again. Try that site, that's where a lot of people go for help with the Powershots, good luck

SOURCE: Canon G9 stopped working

Your camera probably got the loose screw syndrome that these G7 and G9 models many times get. It needs to be repair and should be done professionally, mostly it's a board inside that has to be replaced. The correction to the screws inside of the camera should also be done, it costs $89 for everything at this site: They're excellent for fixing this problem since they are familiar with it and they include the correction automatically so the screws won't come loose again. Plus if it's something else causing the no power syndrome, it's still the same price with them. The work there is excellent and a plus is they only work on Canons, they are very familiar with this G9 problem.

My Canon G9 review function does not work. It flashes the last picture taken only.

It is not the problem with the camera. When the last picture is displayed, you can turn the control dial (the vertical ring around the four-way directional buttons) or use the right and left arrows to navigate to the previous or next image.

Dear experts! i have a G9 powershot camera, and yesterday i have encounterd a problem.....the screen is not showing any image and i have checked and it is not the display's like trying to take...

If it takes normal pictures even with the black display, your LCD display is likely shot. If photos come out black, chances are that your shutter is stuck in the closed position. Sorry, but there is no safe DIY fix for either problem The camera will require professional repair.

I have no image in the viewfinder on a canon S2 IS but the lcd display works and it seems to work fine otherwise. What are the likely causes?

There is sometimes a button on digital cameras that turns off the LCD while taking pictures to save battery. Does your camera have a viewfinder? If it does then there might be a button that looks like a little screen or says "disp" or something like that.

It may be fixable, but it may be expensive. You also have the option to upgrade your camera through Canon's Loyalty program. I'd give them a call and find out what your options are before going out and purchasing a new camera.
