Canon g9 just started getting card locked error. I checked, the card is not locked - also tried different cards. It works sometimes. Tried to reset the settings and received "busy" message.

Check the right strap lug and see if it is loose. It is a well know problem with the G9 that the screws that hold it onto the top cover come lose and fall into the camera, causing many different problems is they short out parts of the circuit

G9 has no power and the battery is good; what's wrong>?

Most of the time when a Canon G9 has no power, it almost always has the loose screw syndrome inside the camera. When the screws inside come loose, they cause a short and the camera typically has no power at that point. The good news is it's not too expensive to have fixed.
There's a great shop that just specializes in the Canon Powershots and is amazing for this G9 no power problem. The site is: They charge $89 total for the parts, labor, and return shipping regardless of what is causing the no power problem. Their flat-rate service packages are pretty tough to beat but they only service powershots. The neat thing with them is they include all of the service for the camera at the time of the repair and they also perform the no power correction automatically which needs to be done so this doesn't keep happening. For those that need help with this problem, they're fantastic for service on these cameras.

My canon g9 was on the lense extended and from then on it will not turn on again

The Canon G9 has a design defect, two screws fall out inside the camera and short out the fuse. If you've never had it fixed for no power before this is most likely what has happened to your camera.

Do a Google search for "canon g9 no power repair" and you will see a full repair service including return shipping of your camera for just $85.

Hope this helps!

My canon g9 will not power even with newly charge battery

You can go to this site: They're excellent for the Canon Powershot cameras.

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 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: Everything comes out to $89 and they are awesome for service on the Canon Powershots. I hope this helps, all the best with it.

Canon g9 camara will not turn on power

The Canon G9 has a problem where two screws in the top of the camera work themselves loose over time, then fall out and short out the fuse on what's called the DC/DC board.

This board needs to be replaced, both screws need to be found within the camera (if both fell out), and they need to be put back in place and held in with 'Locktite' so they don't fall out again.

If you do a Google search for "g9 no power repair" you will see in the #3 position Darntoothysam com, where you can have this repair performed for $85 total! This includes the part, installation, and return shipping of the camera.

If you want to do the repair yourself (no instructions included, sorry) you may purchase the part you need for $48 including shipping.

Hope this helps!

No power?

You just need to have the camera serviced for this no power problem. This is common on the G9 but there's a correction that can be done so this problem never happens again. It has to do with two loose screws in the camera that can result in a short and no power on the G7 and the G9 cameras. If you go to: they specialize in Service for the Canon Powershots and they are amazing if you need service for one of these. They actually have this exact fix available on their site for your model so you can get it taken care of for very little and have the camera serviced up completely at the same time. Try that site, that's where a lot of people go for help with the Powershots, good luck with it.
