Are you looking at multiple pictures in the play mode? If so select one image and you should go back to the standard method of right and left clicking the dial. The mode your in you can use the scroll wheel to breeze through images.

Hi, the zoom function on top of my G9 has suddenly stopped working properly....it is now quite sloppy and doesn't control zoom accurately?Any ideas? Thank you Nick


Does the zoom switch feel loose? There was a problem with G7 zoom switches - a spring in the switch used to break sometimes. Maybe it's the same problem, although I have never seen a G9 with that problem. Anyways, you will have to give it to a camera technician, unless you have experience in camera repairs. G9 is not a complicated camera, but it's not hard to damage it without the experience. To access the top cover from the bottom side, half of the camera has to be disassembled.

Try them, they do amazing work and that's where most people head for service for the Powershots, good luck

If it takes normal pictures even with the black display, your LCD display is likely shot. If photos come out black, chances are that your shutter is stuck in the closed position. Sorry, but there is no safe DIY fix for either problem The camera will require professional repair.

My Canon G9 was working fine but now movie clips are playing correctly when viewed on the camera's LCD screen but when downloaded to my laptop the image aspect ratio is incorrect and the picture looks...


i beleive that your issue is a setting in the program you are using to view the video. the camera will never skew a video. you may want to change the aspect ratio in the camera to match your viewer, but you should at least be able to set the viewer to maintain aspect ratios on video viewing. try viewing the videos with a different program. i.e. if you are using windows media player, try it with quicktime and see what happens. good luck

Downloading from the Canon G9.


You might want to pickup a Lensmate pen cleaner to clean your optics. There is a micro one that works great for this size type camera.
