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.
Your camera most likely has a short from some screws that get loose inside of these cameras. There's a really good place that only services Canon Powershots. They are not expensive at all and they do wonderful work. It's $89 with them for parts, labor servicing for the camera included. If you're in the states, they give you the free Priority Shipping going back too which is nice. One of the neat things with them is that not only do they do wonderful work, they include the no power correction on any G9 they service, that way the problem doesn't keep happening. The website for them is: www.camerasandparts.com If you have a Canon Powershot, they're great for help with these cameras. Best of luck with the problem.
If it's under a year, send it in for warranty with proof of purchase. If the warranty has since expired, try this site: www.camerasandparts.com They're amazing for help with these. The no power problem on the G7 and the G9 is most often from a common loose screw that falls out inside the camera and causes a short, resulting in no power on the device. The site I gave you does the internal correction to the screws so you don't have to worry about the problem from keep happening. They're $89 with all of the service for the camera included and the repair and correction and even cover shipping back. The best part, they do amazing work on these Canons, good luck with it.
This is most likely a CCD problem that is being repaired free by Canon. I don't know where the French repair center is but you might find it on the internet. For more details about the free repair, go here: http://www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.html
