Question about Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Will not turn on

Camera randomly turned off leaving lens extended. I knew I'd charged the battery early that afternoon but put the battery back on charge anyway, within a few minutes the green charge light was illuminated. I've tried cleaning the battery contacts and remove the memory card. So far nothing has worked.

Please Help!

This is likely the cause of an internal screw that has come loose, it's very common on the G9. A great place to get help with this G9 problem is: camerasandparts.com since they just specialize in these powershots. They not only have the fix available but they have the correction so this never comes back, that comes with their no power service for the G9's automatically. I hope that helps, that's the place if you need help with a powershot, best of luck

A common reason for this is that one of the strap lug screws works loose and runs around insdie the camera! Usually it shorts a fuse on the circuit and repair involves new fuse and refitting the loose screw.

Lens error, 122,1,0,0


Hi,

The problem is actually quite common throughout all camera brands. 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.


1.Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.


2.
Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install new batteries, and turn on the camera.


Thank you !!

Camera wont turn on and lens wont go in and i just put new batteries in


Lens of the Camera doesn't retract:
---------------------------------------
Before trying any of the suggestions, make sure that the Battery is
fully charged and in recording mode.

1) Remove the batteries from the camera, wait for a couple of minutes,
then put them back in and turn the camera on.
2) Try compressed air. With a fine tip blow off gun and dry compressed
air (20 lbs) set the tip between the lens turret and the camera body
and turn on the air while moving the tip around the lens. It should
remove all dust and sand. Turn the camera on and it should function
fine.s

3) Try forcing the camera lens:

Turn off the camera. Place it on the back with the lens facing up and
take a look at the spacing between the lens and the lens housing. If
you notice that the gap is not even all the way around the lens, the
problem should be easy to fix. This type of a problem usually occurs if
the camera was dropped while the lens was extended.
Simply - VERY GENTLY - press down the lens on the side where the gap is the biggest. You should hear a "click" as it pops back into place. Try
powering the camera back on.

If the lens doesn't extend at all or it extends, and then retracts
again, do the following.
(a) Turn the camera off.
(b) Take the camera in one hand and with the other gently take one part
of the lens and gently move it round in a circular movement. Do so with
both sections of the lens. You will hear a "click" as it pops back in
place.
(c) Power the camera on.

Another version of this fix would be to pull and twist on the largest
ring of the lens while turning the camera on. Listen for a "click". If
at first the focus seems to be off, turn the camera on and off and take
lots of pictures, close ups and distance. Focus should slowly start
improving.

Camera turns on then off immediately


Make sure that you are installing a fresh/ full charge battery
Remove the battery
Clean the metal contacts on the battery using a clean cloth

Pls test with an alt. batt.
If you do not have access to a dif. battery.
Pls. take the batt out of the camera. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the batt. If not you will need to order a No power repair.

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:

Kodak easy share z612 will not turn on to take a picture


When the battery dies, usually the camera will retract the lens if possible. If the battery is so dead the lens can not retract, I would recommend trying to charge or change the battery. Or try to turn the camera on, and then manually shutting it off if you can.
