Question about Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera
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.
The screws laying on the DC/DC board can cause your batteries to be run down very quickly, and eventually will short out the camera when it doesn't happen right away like with your camera.
This board may need 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!
