    Called Canon and since camera is still under warranty I have mailed it back to them. I didn't get the impression this is a uncommon occurrence. I don't think there is much you can do about it yourself. Do try taking the battery out over night and try power it up in the morning. This was their only suggestion.

It's a common problem with the loose screws on the G7 and the G9 cameras. The camera needs to be serviced since it likely blew a fuse when it shorted. The site that's really good for help with these is: www.camerasandparts.com They just service the powershots and they are less than most places charge. They do wonderful work but the best part is they do the correction for these problem on all G9's they work on so the problem doesn't keep happening. That's where a lot of people go for help with this problem. Good luck with yours.

Try recharging the battery over night and then try and turn the camera on. This worked for me when I had a similar problem.

I had my G9 repaired to fix a spot that developed on the sensor - since then the camera has not taken the quality of zoom photos that it used to and just recently the video does not focus or zoom. Already...


The only place I know of that does outstanding work on the Powershots and is actually reasonably priced is www.camerasandparts.com They exclusively service the Canon Powershots only and their work is outstanding! If you get their service package for the G9 image problem it fixes the spot in the image problem. They only charge $89 for everything, parts, labor and shipping back included and they clean and service up the camera at the time of the repair. They're the place for help with these Canons, good luck with the problem.

Somebody was using my canon powershot g9 and when they gave it back to me the lens was out and it was dead. Ive tried everything from charging the batteries and everything nothing is working. Please help!


Camera likely has a common short that comes up on the G9 camera. You just need to get the camera serviced and you'll be back in business again. The site that specializes in service for the powershots is: camerasandparts.com They're amazing if you need help with one of these, that's all they deal with. The good thing with them is they do the correction so that common short never comes back again on the G9. Good luck, that's the place if you need help with a powershot model, they're excellent when it comes to service for these.

No power?


You just need to have the camera serviced for this no power problem. This is common on the G9 but there's a correction that can be done so this problem never happens again. It has to do with two loose screws in the camera that can result in a short and no power on the G7 and the G9 cameras. If you go to: www.camerasandparts.com they specialize in Service for the Canon Powershots and they are amazing if you need service for one of these. They actually have this exact fix available on their site for your model so you can get it taken care of for very little and have the camera serviced up completely at the same time. Try that site, that's where a lot of people go for help with the Powershots, good luck with it.

I'm unable to download photos from the disk.


You may be saving the images in the RAW format, which requires matching software to read. Most kiosks can't read them. If this is the case, switch back to jpeg format.

My Cannon G9 digital camera wont power up even though I have a fully charged battery?


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.

Computer cannot detect camera at all!


Can you use a USB card reader? The canon software is great but it best used for using a method called tethering your camera (when you shoot directly from camera to hard drive)
