Canon Powershot G1

Please help me.
I am using the a new oldiest powershot G1, and it is on trouble now.
Sometimes the camera works, but oftenly does like error.
When I turn it on, then everything go slow, slow booting up, the lens running slower than normally, and then the display in the top to appear one by one.
When I push the shutter, the process to take the picture is going very slooow too.
Anyone knows what happened w/ this camera? Thanks for the help. Jack

Canon PowerShot G1: If battery pack is fully charged, can a dead Button Battery (CR2016) cause the camera to not power up? Thank You

No. The coin battery only powers the memory for the camera settings such as date & time. I suspect you have a chip failure and will need to send the camera off for repair. I know, I know,.... these repair places are a rip-off because they quote a flat rate for repair, even if it's a $3.00 chip set.

I have a Canon powershot A1100is dig camera. When I try to turn it on, it reads need new batteries. even if I change the batteries. Sometimes it wont even turn on. Help

Do you using Ni-MH batteries? Canon cameras judge the battery is low power by the real-time voltage of the batteries. And the voltage of Ni-MH batteries are lower than Li-ion ones, so the camera will notice low power even there are new batteries. Try Li-ion ones and see is anything help. best wishes!!

NO memory card Problem - Powershot 550

More likely one of the spring contacts in the camera that connect to the SD card has become weak causing the problem.

PowerShot G1 + cf card

The Canon G1 was my first digital camera, years ago. When this camera was sold it came with a 16 Mb CF card. The manual refers to CF card sizes from 8 Mb up to 128 Mb and the number of photos you can take with each size card. However, I bought my camera together with a 1GB "micro drive" (tiny hard drive in a CF card format) and although it wasn't "supported" by Canon, it worked fine. I also used a regular 1GB CF card in it (after I lost the microdrive card). If you want to use a card larger than 1GB with this camera, test/borrow a card to make sure it works before you buy one. Camera stores always have a variety of cards (used to demonstrate the cameras they are selling) that you can put in your camera and test before you decide which card to buy.

Error code

I found the answer on another site and was able to fix my camera myself. E24 means your LCD display has come unplugged. What happens if you rotate the screen too much you tighten up the wire and it pulls the connection out of its socket. There ar 4 screws on hedispla, unscrew ad take th back off the screen. Unwind the screen until the wires loosen up. Replug in the loose connector. Resecure the back
