Having problems with your Canon PowerShot G7 Digital Camera ?
Same problem. Canon just stopped working.
\015 One minute i am looking at pictures. turned it off then on again but it would not start. After read some of the other problems on this board someone mentioned a loose screw. Sure enough i give he camera a shake and there is a loose screw inside the camera. Any one know if Canon has issued a recall?\015
There's no recall on this problem, it usually happens if the camera was previously dropped or had a good bump, that vibration is what loosens those screws. 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 no power problem on their site for your model so you can get it taken care of for very little and have the camera serviced up completely. They even include the correction so the problem never comes back which is great. Try that site, that's where a lot of people go for help with the Powershots, good luck

Hello I am in Hawaii vacationing and my Canon Rebel XS stopped working. I cannot click and get a busy message when I see through the lens. The display does not work and when I called the technical support they said that I have to send this back to their repair center. This sucks. Anyone with the same problem, please save my vacation (apart from the suggestion that I dump my Canon in the ocean and go buy a Nikon) Sam

It seems to me that Nikon Point & Shoot cameras, or at least the last 2 that I have bought, have a usable life span of approx 4 or so years before the LCD's decide not to work in turn, makes the camera non usable. I have a 5700, 3.5 years old before it stopped working & a S4, which the LCD also quit working and it is 4 years old, I think my next point & shoot will be a Canon to go along with it's big brother that I bought this year, 50D Does anyone have a solution to this Nikon problem? Stan Wil
No solution here. If you want a quality Nikon, you need to spend thousands for their professional DSLRs. Take care of your Canon and you should be very happy with it. ... Nikon Coolpix S4 Digital Camera
This is a recently purchased camera that was working beautifully until recently. It just stopped taking pictures; when the shutter release is pressed, nothing happens. The only clue I have to what is happening came when I pressed the Quick View button and got a No Card message. I changed the CF card to one I took from my Canon Rebel XT and that I knew was working fine - again the message No Card when the QV button was pressed. Does that help at all in defining the problem? Any ideas what the pro

My Camera will not turn on I have a Canon PowerShot SD750 Digital Elph. About 2 weeks ago, it stopped working and just randomly would not turn on. The strange part is, I had just used it about an hour before it stopped working and it seemed to be just fine. I didn't drop it or damage it in any way, so I don't understand why it just stopped turning on just out of the blue.

I have a Canon MV600. when switched on to 'camera', all I get is a blank screen. Occasionally it will work normally. I suspect the iris is not opening and the iris motor sounds a bit rough. do you have any idea what the problem is likely to be and how much this repair is likely to cost. Incidentally, I also had this same problem with an older analogue Canon model so it would seem to be a common failing.
