Question about Canon PowerShot G5 Digital Camera
I have a canon powershot G5. I was taking photos and it just shut off by itself. now it wont turn on and when I charged it, the charge indicator on the camera doesnt even appear. can anyone help? thanks
First, you must be certain that your battery pack is still good.
You have to clean all connecting point (between the camera and the batterry) with a dry clean cloth inside the battery pack compartment.
Another think to check, is the date and time battery (dime size battery located inside the battery pack compartment) to remove it, slide the battery case out and change it. Since the battery is install at the factory, it verry possible that there is no more power. At the end of your owner manual, you will find, before troubleshooting section, the way to remove it, it verry easy, no force need it.
A deffective flash card can also cause the problem. Remove also the flash card and replace it by a new one or another one that you have.
When the battery is fully charge, install it along whith the new time and date battery. Leave the camera alone for a couple of hour in order to let the board get some refresment. Try to put it on, if it not work, slide in and out the battery, couple of time, close the compartment and try again.
In many cases, the camera will start and you will have to put the time and date, if the battery (time and date) was warn out. Make sure that your screen is on. You ready to go. :)

Try to check if your charger in the first place can still charge your battery. It could be the reason why there is no "charging light" indicator.
