Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

SOURCE: see dust or drop of water on my pic canon sx10 is

You have to disassembly your camera for it, including the lens assembly.

Even if you have experience and skills in fixing electronic devices, I don't recommend it, since any particle of dust will get inside the lens and your camera, and will affect it.

The recommended place to perfom such cleaning activity is a Clean room (class 3 or higher), and have handy the proper cleaning tools.

Disassembling the lens is tricky and also needs a lot of patience and technique skills to do it properly.

Imagine that by accident a spring pops up a tiny metal ball (1.5 mm diameter) and you lose it in your home, then because of it, your lens will not work properly.

If it has warranty, I do recommend you to send it to cleainig to a professional repair and cleaning service.

If still you have questions or doubts, or need a cheaper quote for it (after get some quotes from local repair centers for comparison), you can contact the ebay seller Great_items_2004

Best regards,

Camera likely has a common short that comes up on the G9 camera. You just need to get the camera serviced and you'll be back in business again. The site that specializes in service for the powershots is: camerasandparts.com They're amazing if you need help with one of these, that's all they deal with. The good thing with them is they do the correction so that common short never comes back again on the G9. Good luck, that's the place if you need help with a powershot model, they're excellent when it comes to service for these.

A small hair or similar has got inside the lens of my G9. It shows up in the lighter part of pictures. Is this repairable?


Try to look if it is in the outside of the lens, you could remove it with a lens cleaner, if you can't see the strand of hair, take it to a camera shop to get it cleaned.

The problem you have will require the camera being serviced. A reall good place to get help with the G9's is www.camerasandparts.com They only service Canon Powershots and they are really great for these. With them, you would pay $89 for the service package and that covers everything on the repair and the service on the camera included. They're really great if you need help with a Powershot. When you click on that link I gave you it will take you to their site. Look under their complete service packages and you'll see the lens error service there for the G9. I hope that helps with it.

My Canon Powershot G9 suddenly stopped working yesterday. It's just stuck with the lens extended. I've checked and the battery is OK. Nothing's working..no LCD screen, won't switch on or off etc.


This is a really common problem on the G7 and the G9. They get no power all of a sudden when two screws from inside the camera get loose and cause a short. It's not a cleaning as was suggested, your camera actually needs to be repaired. There's a great shop that only specializes in service for the the Canon Powershot cameras and they have this exact fix on their site. They charge $89 for everything. That takes care of parts, labor, the services for the G9, return shipping and they give you a pretty good warranty on the whole camera once it's been serviced. The cool thing with them is they do the correction to the two screws inside the G7's and the G9's that causes this no power problem. Here is the site where you can have it serviced: www.camerasandparts.com Everything comes out to $89 and they are awesome for service on the Canon Powershots. I hope this helps, all the best with it.

How do you restart the Canon G9 camera?


There is not way to reset it if you get “lens error”. The lens stuck, you need to send it for repair.

Go with this place: www.camerasandparts.com They are about half of what Canon charges and they do awesome work on the Canon Powershots. All they specialize in are the Canons, they do really great work and they are so much less than Canon on the service.

Downloading from the Canon G9.


You might want to pickup a Lensmate pen cleaner to clean your optics. There is a micro one that works great for this size type camera.
