Question about Canon PowerShot G6 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Trying to mend my PowerShot G6

Good morning, yesterday I tried the 'bounce' test with this lovely camera, it failed miserably. The result of the drop is the zoom action has stopped. It looked fine when I first looked at it, turned it on fine, tried the zoom first it worked then it stopped. When I looked at the case the part of the body containing the lever etc was slightly adrift of the main body, stupidly I fiddled with the lever (now stiff) pushed the housing home, heard a snap and messed it up completely. I have opened the casing and can see that when the lever moves it connects with a plastic lug (now lying next to the camera).
Is it possible to buy this section anywhere?
Is there a working diagram anywhere I can use?
Is there any way I can cobble this back together myself?
I should add, I had to take a very deep breath before even taking the case apart, so anything practical has to be fairly easy for me to follow..

Many many thanks, regards, Elaine

Unfortunately, it will be beyond economic repair, and it is unlikely spares are available to other than authorised repair facilities.

Remove your batteries and look inside the battery compartment. Notice that there should be three small phillips screws at the bottom of the compartment. Tighten up all of these screws.

No, you would have to send the product to Canon for repairs, and it would most likely be cheaper to just buy a new camera. I hope this helps!

When you disconnected the camera from the computer, did you remember to use the "safely remove hardware" function? If not, you may need to reset the camera. If you can get into the camera menu, just scroll to find "reset" and follow the instructions. If you can't, try this. Remove the card and battery...press all the buttons...leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on.

I'm having problems downloading pictures from my Canon PowerShot G6 camera to by computer. Can you help?


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

I have a Canon PowerShot G6 and every CF card I insert in the camera displays Memory card error 100-0002. Any idea why this is happening?


Take a look inside your camera's CF card slot. I suspect that you may have a bent pin in there. If so, don't fret. Although professional repair would be more costly than the value of the camera, there is a very good chance that you can repair this yourself. Please see this link.

Dropped SD750 on floor, now won't turn on


That's a hard one to analyze through email. A camera tech would have to use test equipment on it to see if the power section got shorted when the door opened when it hit the floor. It may not be a cheap or easy fix, but only a tech can tell. I have heard of cameras getting damaged, just from putting batteries in backwards, so a short circuit might have damaged a chip inside. Of course a warranty does not cover dropped cameras, but you might want to have them look at it and tell you what it will cost.
