Question about Canon PowerShot G2 Digital Camera

Canon G2 'dead' after not using for over a year

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.

    Yes - I have not used my G2 for about a year and I came to turn it on and it is dead! I am going now to a shop to check to see if it is the battery.

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.

Clear mold insides lens of Canon G2/G5


Who found the mold? The lens cannot be disassembled by you. It must be done at a Canon service center and it will be expensive.

Batteries go dead


There appears to be an issue with the S2 IS after two years.  See the reviews on Canon's website: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=322&modelid=11368#ModelDetailAct

If yours is two years old then you are probably out-of-luck.  It would probably cost more to repair than to simply replace.  As a work-around, try removing the batteries after use.

G2 PowerShot Power Problem


When you're charging the camera, make sure the power switch is set to OFF. We've run into the same thing- we could plug it in for days, but it won't charge at all if the power switch is on.

Hope that helps.

Battery Charging light doesn't flash and battery doesn't charge


I have the same problem. Worked for 3 years and now the battery charges to green but goes dead immediately. I've changed batteries. Its the camera not the batteries. Works fine plugged in. Obviously the cameras are not charging the batteries. Canon must know but I cannot find a fix and warranty is over. I guess buying the expensive camera of the day isnt always assuring you of quality.

Canon ZR40 would not turn on


The battery is probably so dead it is using all the power from the wall supply.  Remove the battery, and run only from the wall supply.

I just repaired my Canon G2 with the same symptom.  The internal PCB that you plug the external AC adapter is defective.  The numbers on the board are:

The two types of Camera refer to the SLR's. I doubt the G2 will support FP flash as it probobly does not have a focal plane shutter like a SLR.

Canon G2 Powershot suddenly went dead


I read of a simmilar problem - a "zoom brush", caused by a faulty part, number CL1-1006-000. Usualy it appears earlier in the cameras career though... Did you try leaving it battery-less for a bit longer than the short changes? Remove it from all possible power sources(There is a small battery inside the main battery compartment) for at least a few minutes. It should reset it in case its just a system crash. Just be aware that after the reset it will ask you to input date and time, and theres another known bug of most of the buttons freezing after inputing date/time. should be fixed by pressing the display button. Hope you manage to fix it somehow...
