Question about Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera
E16 error means that the lens mechanism is jammed, and the lens cannot extend/retract.
Follow the steps provided below to solve this problem.
Remove the batteries from the camera, wait for 10 minutes, then put them back in and turn the camera on. If this does not work then try the compressed air. With a fine tip blow off the gun and dry compressed air set the tip between the lens turret and the camera body and turn on the air while moving the tip around the lens. It should remove all dust and sand. Turn the camera on and it should function as fine. If this also does not work then you need to force the lens out.
Hope this helps.
