    My canon G7 is about a year old. It made a funny sound when I turned it off. Since then it will not turn on. The battery shows 9.2 volts (I cant test it under load).

    I have the same problem. I was using the camera to review some photos and it shut off. I thought that the battery was low so I put in another fully charged battery. It still won't turn on.

    I have a Canon G7. It won't turn on, the battery is fully charged and still won't turn on. When I tried turning it on the other day it made a wierd sound.

    I was shooting, then the camera powered off without retracting the lenses; I thought it was a battery issue, but after full loading, the camera doesn't turn on (removing the SD card doesn't cahnge anything).

This is a common no power problem on the G7 and the G9, camera most likely has loose screws inside. If you need to have one of these serviced, try this site: They just service the Canon Powershots exclusively and they are terrific for help with these. Even though many stores will tell you the camera can't be fixed or it will be too expensive, don't waste money on a new camera. The G7 is an amazing camera and for $89 that site fixes the problem, does the internal correction so the screws don't get loose again, they include the repair, parts, labor and shipping back all for $89 all in, a tough deal to beat and they do amazing work on these Canons. Good luck to those that have this problem, that site is terrific if you need to revive one of these cameras with this no power problem.

I had the same problem - all of a sudden my G7 wouldn't turn on. I was at a loss and was resigned to a huge repair bill or simply replacing it, until today when I took out the SD card (sandisk 4gb) to use in another camera (Casio Exilim) - and the same thing happened with that one! It wouldn't power up at all - when earlier that day it was working fine with a different SD card. So obviously it was a faulty SD card. Once I'd put a different card into the G7 and put in a fresh battery, it started working again! I am so relieved. Hopefully this might help others.

    OMG!!!! I was resigned to use my G7 as a $600.00 paperweight- until I saw your post. Even the local camera store could not get it to work. I just found the original card, took out the bigger one I had replaced it with years ago, put in another battery, and it came on. Who knows if it will keep working, but it is better than it was!
    Thank you so much for posting this where anyone can use it.

How long should my first and consequent charging times be?

Depends on what battery you are charging. For electronic devices like phones, tablets and camera's 3 to 4 hours should be enough. But be aware the first 2 or 3 charges can be used in a short time, so prepare to charge soon. After the 3th charge the battery should work normal. Wait till the charger indicates the battery is charged. Depends on whet device and what charger you are using.

The Brookstone manual claims it will fully charge after 3-5 hours, but it takes much longer then that. Mine does not indicate green light, but it seems it stops blinking red when its fully charged. After that it run on power directly from the ac-adapter.

If you keep it connected to the AC-adapter after it have stopped blinking red (do not disconnect it at all), it will start to run on the adapter and will not turn off. You will feel the AC-adapter gets hot while its running, something it does not while regular charging.

If it still dont stop blinking red after having it connected to power for 3 days, your AC-adapter is probably faulty. This happened to me, and after allot of research I found this replacement from a US seller on ebay (only five dollars included shipping).

Good luck with your projector. It a really cool little thing, but it has some design flaws.

Best regards.

I need to connect by Canon Realis X700 to my USB port but I cant, so I was wondering how I can get a driver.

If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers, for spare parts and service, Driver downloads and Installation Instructions as required.

This is the best way of ensuring up to date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!

There may be a driver listed here.

I hope this helps.

G7 just dead. can't turn on power. check battery

These G7 powershot cameras sometimes get a short from a loose screw which often leaves the camera with no power. You'll want to have it fixed but with a place that knows of the problem and does the correction inside the camera so that it doesn't keep happening. The place that just does powershots and they do amazing work on these cameras is: They charge about half of what canon wants to fix this problem and the include the service and the correction to the screws inside so it won't keep happening. It's $89 for everything with them, a great deal and they do superb work on these cameras.

First remove the batteries then defrost paying greater attention to tempreture if you are using a defoster. But you can use air cone tempreture to defost it.
