Question about Canon PowerShot G2 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera does not turn on.

Hi,
My Powershot G2 (Canon) doesn't turn on anymore. I had previously charged the battery the night before and the next day "it quit on me". When I went home I tried to charge the battery again, but when the camera is connected to the charger, the light indicating that the battery is charging is dead (used to be orange and blinking until full charge, then it would turn green.
Do I need a new battery or do you guys think the charger is bad? Please don't tell me the camera is dead! I know it's not the latest and greatest model, but I love my camera!!!!

Thank you in advance for your help,
Sil

The camera does not seem to charge properly, it will be plugged in all night with only hafe charge the following day. When it gets to a certain point is says "change battery pack"


Hi.

The battery pack is failing and this is why its not getting a full charge. The camera itself is telling you what you need to do. You have to replace the battery pack for a new one.

Only brings up change the batteries. no focus, no get ready to shoot


Hi,

The best way to test if your camera is still in working order is to replace the current batteries with new fully charged batteries.
If this solves your problem you would know that the previous batteries were not working anymore and needed to be replaced.

However, if there are still other problems that occur after the replacement of your batteries, feel free to ask again for assistance.

If you used a memory card, take it down to CVS pharmacy or the equivalent, and have your pictures put on disk. They normally charge around 1. to 3. dollars, depending on how many pictures you have on your camera.

G2 PowerShot Power Problem


When you're charging the camera, make sure the power switch is set to OFF. We've run into the same thing- we could plug it in for days, but it won't charge at all if the power switch is on.

Hope that helps.

Battery Charging light doesn't flash and battery doesn't charge


I have the same problem. Worked for 3 years and now the battery charges to green but goes dead immediately. I've changed batteries. Its the camera not the batteries. Works fine plugged in. Obviously the cameras are not charging the batteries. Canon must know but I cannot find a fix and warranty is over. I guess buying the expensive camera of the day isnt always assuring you of quality.

I just repaired my Canon G2 with the same symptom.  The internal PCB that you plug the external AC adapter is defective.  The numbers on the board are:

Canon G2 Powershot suddenly went dead


I read of a simmilar problem - a "zoom brush", caused by a faulty part, number CL1-1006-000. Usualy it appears earlier in the cameras career though... Did you try leaving it battery-less for a bit longer than the short changes? Remove it from all possible power sources(There is a small battery inside the main battery compartment) for at least a few minutes. It should reset it in case its just a system crash. Just be aware that after the reset it will ask you to input date and time, and theres another known bug of most of the buttons freezing after inputing date/time. should be fixed by pressing the display button. Hope you manage to fix it somehow...

Canon powershot G2


Hi: It turns out that one of the wires connecting the LCD screen with the camera body probably is broken. It is a simple to remove the LCD cover and reconnect the wire, but it requires manipulating very small objects. The clip that you must re-insert the wire into is scarcely 1mm x 4mm. I recommend a bright light, magnifying glass, tweezers, and a very small phillips screwdriver. It might also be possible to aquire a replacement cable from Canon. E-mail them... Regards
