Question about Canon PowerShot G2 Digital Camera
My friend has a G2 that has not been used for over a year, and now found that the battery would not charge. He took it to the camera shop to see whether it is the battery. It is not. Taken to Canon service, they say it is the 'circuit board' and will cost US$200 to repair it.
I also have a G2 that has not been used for over more than a year. So I tried to see how mine is -- lo and behold, the same problem. The camera is 'dead'. Checked out that it is not the battery problem.
Anybody has encounted this problem? No sense of fixing it at $200.
We live in Hong Kong.

If the battery hasn't been used for awhile, it may have lost it's ability to recharge. Go to bargaincell.com and buy a replacement for $8 + shipping. It will be delivered for <$15. Replace the battery and recharge. It should be fine. It fixed my problem. Unless you are leaving the camera in a hot window or a humid shower room, the electronics should last a long time. I've had my G2 for 8 years without electronic malfunction.
