    I received a free g7 after it wouldn't power up for the previous owner, it does look like it has been dropped, but no major damage. I am not sure how far to go to repair it, but it is a very nice camera. I've tried several batteries and took a look inside and there still is no sine of life. I would like some direction on what (if anything) I can do to repair, or a place I could get a free/cheap estimate I can send it or drop off in Colorado to have it repaired.

    My G7 has been returned to Canon three times and now the problem of it not turning on is constant and very annoying. It is untrustworthy and very frustrating.

    My Powershot G7 was working fine a few days before. The next time I pulled it out it just wouldn't turn on. The battery had been fully charge and nothing had happened to it since the last time I used it. It was in it's case in a cabinet.

    Like other posters, my G7 was working fine, nothing happened, and suddenly it would not turn on. It's not under warranty; a camera repair shop said they couldn't do the repair, but they could send it to Canon, and Canon would repair it for around $200 (a flat fee regardless of how hard it is to repair).

Same issue happened on Saturday. Only difference was the lens cover didn't completely shut when I tried to turn it off. I turned it on then off again and the cover shut....but it wouldn't turn back on. I fully charged the battery, but nothing. Tried two different batteries.

I was going to take mine in today to Wolf Camera in CO where I bought it.

Note that the camera was fully cleaned and and a new lense added less than a month ago by Canon (through the warranty program through Wolf)

Thougths?
Did anyone get any feedback?

Camera will not turn on. i ordered a new battery and still nothing.


Its not a problem with the battery, the G7 and the G9 have a problem where a loose screw inside the camera shorts it out and causes it to not power. The repair service is about $85 total for a new part, installation and return shipping of the camera!

My canon powershot g7 USB quit working, tried different cable and different computer


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

There is a noise inside the camera. Kind of like the sound when you focus, but continuous whether or not you are focusing. Just started this morning. Camera has not been dropped or anywhere weird. It's...


G7 and G9 have a common problem: loose screws short the circuit boards. So if it’s possible, return it. But if you really like to keep it, open the camera and make sure the screws are secured. See here for more details:

Canon Powershot G7 just wont turn on... for no reason I can tell.


Usually you can't hear the loose screws in these when they fall out and short out the camera, although many people will say you can. When you have no power on a G7 or a G9, it is most always that loose screw problem. The screws inside should be corrected at the time of the repair so the problem doesn't happen again later. The site that is great for help with the Canon Powershot Camera problems is: www.camerasandparts.com They are great with these and that is all they specialize in. I would see if they can help, they're amazing if you need a hand with the Powershots, plus they do that no power correction on all G7 and G9's they service which I like. Good luck with it

A friend suggested I uninstall the digital camera solution disk and then reinstall it. I did so and although my computer seemed to crash once it was restarted after turning it off and back on and getting a blue screen from microsoft stating I had to start it manually everything worked out. I am so thankful. I got about 100 pictures downloaded and stored into the appropriate album. Thank you for your concern.

Wont turn on


It may be the SD memory card causing the problem. I just bought a G7. When I turned it on without an SD card, no problem. I put it my old cheap SD card and it wont turn on. I take out the memory card and battery, then insert the Canon SD card and battery and turn it on, no problem.
Hope this helps someone.
