Question about Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera

2 Answers

My Canon G9 had gotten wet and it was dried and returned in working order by a Canon dealer. He said that the camera might develop spots on the lens and a few months later I noticed a hazy area in the middle of each picture. It appears to be getting worse. Is the lens replaceable on the G9 or should I consider buying a new G9. I love this specific point and shoot. Thanks in advance MH

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 lens is replaceable but at high cost. If you have a Canon dealer at your disposal, why not get an estimate. Then you can decide if it is worth it.

The only place I know of that does outstanding work on the Powershots and is actually reasonably priced is www.camerasandparts.com They exclusively service the Canon Powershots only and their work is outstanding! If you get their service package for the G9 image problem it fixes the spot in the image problem. They only charge $89 for everything, parts, labor and shipping back included and they clean and service up the camera at the time of the repair. They're the place for help with these Canons, good luck with the problem.

My canon powershot g9 will not turn on


Your camera probably developed a common short that the G9's sometimes get. You'll need to have it serviced and if you go to this site: www.CamerasAndParts.com they service the Canon Powershots exclusively and they are excellent on these models. It's $89 with them and you get parts, labor, servicing for the camera, and most important they perform the no power correction on the camera too. Shipping is included on the way back with them too. For $89 they're tough to beat. They are experts on these models and the only place I'd go for a Canon Powershot. Good luck with yours.

This G9 problem is really common. These cameras develop a problem with screws coming loose inside and causing a short in the camera. The place that a lot of people go for help with this problem is: www.camerasandparts.com They just work on the Canon Powershot cameras and nothing else and they do excellent work. The best part with them is that they do a correction inside the camera so the problem won't keep happening. They service the whole camera up and include the shipping going back, it comes to $89 with them. The work quality through them can't be touched, they are the place if you have a Canon. I hope that helps some. Good luck with the problem.

My Canon digital Rebel got wet in a rain storm yesterday. I took out the battery and let it dry out, but now it's not working. Any suggestions?


If you didn't take off the lens the interior shouldn't have gotten too wet. The best thing to do is take it asap to a camera repair center where the top cover and be removed and dried out. Otherwise send it to Canon and if they can't fix it you will most likely qualify for the Canon Customer Loyalty Program. A refurb XS will cost about $350 with a trade.

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.
