All of a sudden, my G6 won't turn on. I have 2 battery packs, both have been recharged, neither work. I cleaned the contacts on them. Don't have a clue what else to try to avoid paying $150 to Canon for repair service.
We returned the the G6 (Jan 29, 2008 post) to Canon for repair, cost $139 plus $8 shipping
(not including shipping to send it to them). Learned nothing about what
caused the problem. The camera now works with its old CFcard, old
battery, etc.. Definitely a camera problem, with a camera only slightly
used, and only a few months out of warranty! Not very happy.
Hi, Ibought a new G6 a couple of years ago and lo and behold after formatting a new CF card I had this problem. Was I frustrated ! ! A new camera that was malfunctioning. going straight to the matter it was found that my new CFcard was faulty ! Maybe it could be the same problem as mine! hope this may help you. JK

Yes the battery pack will eventually need to be changed. Something to try it first is to clean up all the contacts.A pencil eraser works well for cleaning the contacts, there should be contacts were the remote connects with the base stations and or the battery pack goes in the remote. just use the eraser on all of these contacts,no need to press hard as you don't want to be and any contacts. If that doesn't work then change battery pack
If your rechargeable battery pack takes a different battery tray than the alkaline, you possibly have a bad connection in the battery tray. If they appear to use the same battery contacts, look at where the rechargeable battery touches compared to the alkaline. There may be a problem in this area. Clean all contacts with a pencil eraser to insure your radio is free of debris on the contacts.
Rechargeable batteries do have a lifespan, they won't recharge forever. If you have fully discharged the batteries then fully recharged them and they still don't have full power or they only last a couple minutes then they are done. If they won't charge or the charger shows them as defective, the only fix is to replace them.
If it has a rechargeable pack on it try swapping it out with a "AA" battery pack. sometimes the rechargeable batteries can go bad. If the controller still won't turn on then you have an internal problem and you will need a new controller. :) Or you can try getting your controller fixed, although there in not very many people that are willing to work on controllers

if your are using the ordinary AA rechargeable battery it will not charge., Camera dock will charge only on a 2 Pack AA battery like KAA2HR batteries or the 2 AA battery that attached together (Ni-MH rechargeable battery pack )
Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera
which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the
camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with
a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,
steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen
into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of
the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears
the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your camera may have
a problem that requires professional repair.
