Having problems with your Canon PowerShot G7 Digital Camera ?

Powershot G7 Camera won't turn on.

\015 It just won't! I took out the battery once, and now it won't turn on.\015

Answers :

Same issue happened on Saturday. Only difference was the lens cover didn't completely shut when I tried to turn it off. I turned it on then off again and the cover shut....but it wouldn't turn back on. I fully charged the battery, but nothing. Tried two different batteries.

I was going to take mine in today to Wolf Camera in CO where I bought it.

Note that the camera was fully cleaned and and a new lense added less than a month ago by Canon (through the warranty program through Wolf)
