Question about Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera

Open Question

My Canon G9 has suddenly developed a few problems: the flash choise is off or automatic, no "on" for fill-in. Also, the scene setting has stopped working and there is no video option - it just takes still pictures as if always on "Auto". Any ideas?

While I can't be specific for your camera the "Palm" sign normally indicates that "Anti-shake stabilisation" is operational and although you can normally turn it off it is preferable not to as it improves the quality of your recording especially when using long zoom.

SOURCE: canon g9 camera doesnt work in raw only jpeg

Go to the menu for the camera and look for "SAVE". you should have the choice in which format to save the pictures. Select "RAW" and then exit the menu. The camera should now save in RAW format. Some one or something probably switched the setting (such as reset camera).

SOURCE: Canon G9 reads E16. What should I do?

E16 Error code (on all canon compacts) means that there is something wrong with the lens mechanism and it cannot contract/extract/focus etc.

Canon suggests removing the battery, and leaving it out for about half an hour. Make sure that the battery is fully charged before reinstalling it.

Also if you have had the camera for over a year, the battery may need to be replaced.

If this does not work, the camera will need to be sent to Canon for repair.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: canon A560 command dial skips auto scene mode

I had the same problem with my A560.If you are handy you can repair it yourself.Remove the seven screws from the camera.Note the hidden longer screw behind the battery door.gently remove the front cover first then the rear.note the place where the screw was behind the door has a slight overlap and will need to be pulled away to clear the corner (watch for the lens o-ring seal).The selector wheel has become misaligned between the contacts.unplug the ribbon for the wheel on camera end.(use a pin in the hole of the ribbon to push it back in later).Unclip it from the housing nearest the top.note alignment of contacts on the pad.I had to bend my contacts very slightly towards the outside on one and in on the other and its works a1 again.The rubber cover for usb plug is easiest to install on the camera body first then put that end back in the housing first.make sure it is properly seated before putting the screws back in.Best of Luck and Happy New Years!

Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

Canon pc1251 won't take picture with flash on. it will if i turn off flash


Check if your camera is on automatic. Then f there is too much light it won't work. To use a flash for fill in, you have to be on a scene mode. Check the manual. If the camera has a flashing light, indicating the flash won't work, you have a serious problem.

Camera takes blue photos


You sure you did put the camera to fully automatic? Because I don't know what model you have, I can't check the manual, to see if you could adjust the white balance. It has not much to do with ISO, but with white balance. Sure you did not select something like scene inside. or scene in tungsten?

Our Canon G9 camera heated up, 2 orange lights started flahing and then stopped working. The memory card now can't be opened on other cameras we have tried. Can the memory card be fixed so we don't lose...


Doesn't sound good -- do you have a memory card reader (one of those little boxes) with about 10 slots for every type of memory card -- put the card into one of those and plus the mini USB into the PC.
OR
A printer like Epson 6000 series - that has a CARD slot for flash or SD.
OR
Take the Memory card into a shop to develop the photo's and ask then to make a CD ROM of the Photo's so you can decide which one to print later on.

My G9 wont open the battery is charged


When my former wife arrived from a European trip, she was very upset because suddenly the Canon G9 I had lent her wouldn't open. It was right before Christmas too. I immediately went on line and found Cameras and Parts which was highly recommended by others. After having an unproductive conversation with Canon in which they claimed their was not a general problem with the G9, I contacted Cameras and Parts. I'm happy to report that the camera was fixed in no time and cost about half of what Canon wanted - plus it was refurbished and works great. So you might try Cameras and Parts.

You can have the lens replaced with the original Canon lens and the camera serviced for under $100. Try this site: www.camerasandparts.com they just do powershots and they are excellent for help with these. Their service prices are down to earth and they do fantastic work. Hope that helps.

The best place for service for the Powershots is: www.camerasandparts.com They only specialize in service and repairs for the Powershots and they know their stuff, they're amazing if you need service for one of these models. They don't have any service package for a powershot for over $100 including the repair, plus the service for the camera, and even the shipping back. Try them, they do amazing work and that's where most people head for service for the Powershots, good luck

Canon G9 Flash not firing and not able to find flash on the menu


Assuming there's not really a fault on the camera. Have you got it dialed into a pre-set photo option ? This may negate the flash. Suggest going through the settings menu, putting everything to auto and trying again.

My powershot G9 built in flash is not working


There is a switch on the hot shoe to detect the external flash. When you use an external flash, the switch will be pressed down, then the unit will bypass the internal flash and won’t let it fire. If the little switch gets stuck somehow, you won’t get your internal flash on.
Check this switch on the hot shoe (either on the left side or the right side), blow some compressed air then plug/unplug an external flash several times. Hopefully you can get it back

I want somebody to tell me the best custom setting for canon G9 when you take photo at night.let say Las Vegas at night


All recent Canon point and shoots, including the G9, have special scene modes. There are two which would be very good for "Las Vegas at night". These are "Night Scene" (if you have a tripod), and "Night Snapshot" (no tripod needed, but less spectacular results). You may read more about them here:
