Having problems with your Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera ?
Canon G7 wont switch on
\015 Battery\302\240is ok. Lens is not damaged.\015
What you are experiencing is a very common no power problem on the G7 (also the Canon G9). They develop a no power problem from some screws getting lose inside the camera. There's a shop that can help and is extremely familiar with this specific problem. Try this site: www.camerasandparts.com All they work on are Canon Powershots and the work they do is fabulous and all for about half the price of most places. The thing that's great with them is they include the service for the camera at the time of the no power repair and they do the correction for no power on all G9's to prevent the no power problem from reoccurring. I hope that helps, they're fantastic if you need help with one of these cameras. Just so you know, it's only $89 with them for everything which is quite reasonable. The best part is they do such great work on the Canons. Good luck.
