The symbol with the moon/stars should relate to taking night-time pictures. The lightening symbol stands for flash (ie light shown when photo is taken). The delay should be due to the flash taking time to charge up prior to the photo.

It sounds as though you have activated one of the timers. On the LCD display on top of the camera look in the bottom right-hand corner of the display and see if there is a symbol that looks a bit like a one-handed clock (the timer symbol). If so, press the AF-Drive button on top of the camera and rotate the large, circular selector dial on the back of the camera until that symbol goes away. Now the camera should shoot normally.
Press the button at the back of the camera designated with a lightning symbol. When you pressed it once, it will give you an option for lightning bolt which means flash ON and to turn it off, select the lightning bold with line through it.
With the camera ready to shoot in Auto mode - you will see a little lightening symbol in the top right hand corner of the screen. This indicates the flash is turned on.
On the left side of the circular dial at the back of the camera you will see a similar little lightening symbol indented into the dial. Simply press on this side of the dial to turn the flash on or off as you desire.
The symbol on the screen will go off when you push this to indicate flash is off and return if you press again to turn it on.
On your camera, there should be a button with a lightning bolt with an arrow at the bottom. This is the flash control. Push it until the lightning bolt symbol on the screen is crossed out, this means the flash is turned off.
You can't turn it off in auto. But in any mode other than auto, press the button with the lightning bolt on the back of your camera until you the lightning bolt symbol with a slash through it on your screen.
In your display, is the small lightning symbol appear on the screen? Try cycling through the various flash options by pressing the "flash" lightning symbol to the right of the monitor. If the flash is set to flash when there's not enough light at the G9's descretion (with an "A" next to the symbol) then the flash may or may not go off. I oftentimes set the flash to go off all the time if the camera is not doing it automatically (with the A next to the symbol). Being in Auto mode versus the other preset exposure modes affect the flash options available too.
I work on these cameras all the time you have a ccd going out or has gone out that is causing the auto sensing feature to now work their for the camera stops working. 1 other thing it might be could be the main-board but they don't go out as often.
You may have to manually rewind the film that you just loaded and try again. The is a manual rewind button on this camera. Before you load the new roll, check the condition of the shutter curtains/blades. Do they look out of place or pushed in?
