Try this: with the battery installed and battery door open, take a pencil, fine tip screwdriver, or anything long and skinny and push the tip of it into the little nub circled in the picture here. There's a spring inside that little nub... keep the spring depressed and try to turn on the camera. If it works, then either a small piece of plastic broke off the battery door or the nub got broken/pushed in too far for the battery door to trigger it. Try using a dab of hot glue to keep the nub pushed into the down position.

You're using the wrong batteries. You need to purchase lithium batteries. They are quality batteries for high powered, battery operated electronics. Personally, I have a battery charger and use rechargable duracell batteries. (HR6/ DC1500/ NiMH/ 1,2V) Gives you approximately 16 hrs before having to recharge.

You can give it to an expert for repair, he can repair it for less as there must be just a fuse problem, which can be fixed for a very less amount.

SOURCE: will not turn on
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

Hi. First ensure that the power adapter is OK.
The power adapter should have been tested using a multimeter (see Multimeter)
If the adapter was good it would have read no more +_0.5V difference from the value in specification.
If the adapter is good, test different batteries. If you do not have a spare battery pack, then you can go to a Canon camera shop and ask to test a battery on the bench.
If the battery and the charger are not the problem, then there is an internal failure preventing the camera to start.
The problem is internal. The most common occurrence is a faulty printed circuit board. A short or a broken contact in the power ribbon cable are less common, but will give the same symptoms.
The EOS must be disassembled and tested to find the problem.
If the unit is over one year old you can ask an online quote using this link:Repair.
I also suggest contacting Canon to check warranty terms and ask a quote on repair.
