I EASILY FIX'D THIS PROBLEM & FOUND OUT I CAN DO SOOOOO MUCH WITH SHOOTING VIDEO'S! I DID A GOOGLE SEARCH & CAME ACROSS THIS ADVICE.......TURN THE TOP DIAL ONTO VIDEO ON TOP OF CAMERA. THEN TURN DIAL ON RIGHT SIDE & YOU WILL SEE DIFFERENT SCREENS SUCH AS BLK & WHITE, VIVID COLORS, FAST OR SLOW SPEED; I TURNED MINE TO AUTO & PRESSED FUNC BUTTON IN CENTER OF WHEEL & I WAS BACK TO SHOOTING IN NO TIME........HOPE THIS HELPS!!
This is usually from a loose screw inside the camera, a screw inside the camera can come loose and cause a short which is very common on the G9. If you go to: www.camerasandparts.com all they deal with is service for the Canon Powershots. They're great if you need a hand with one of these and they automatically do the no power correction on the G7's and the G9's they service which is nice. They are about the least expensive out there at $89 and they include the service and the shipping back. The best part, they do excellent work which is a must for me. Hope that helps you some.
