Having problems with your Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera ?

Cannon G9 will not power up?

\015 My G9 Cannon all of the sudden would not power up?? It's been carefully cared for and I'm frustrated..\015\012\015\012 I've tried everything and cannot get it to work?\015

Answers :

Camera probably has loose screws inside that shorted it out. Try this site: www.camerasandparts.com They only work on the Powershots and they are excellent for help with these. The problem is usually that two screws inside come loose and short out the camera. The nice thing with Cameras and Parts is they do some fix to those internal screws so the problem doesn't re-occur. Plus they service up the whole camera with shipping back included for $89 all in. Not a bad deal, they do very professional work on these cameras. All the best to everyone dealing with this Canon G9 no power problem.
Ok guys this a great site my first port of call when the same thing happened to mine , but sometimes you can get bad info from people like the solution of putting tooth pick in battery compartment any way tried that nearly did more damage emailed canon and i wasnt polite not expecting a response but got one, a very nice person said send my camera to see what was wrong and at their discretion may waive charge as long as its not my fault {see what i mean about tooth pick]it was only 6 weeks out of warranty i looked at repair sheet and she did say this on her first email that loading your photos on to computer from camera is bad for camera and hey presto two weeks later the repair sheet said pc had blown a circuit in camera ,, solution after repair is a 10 pound card reader but i can honestly say that after saying i would not buy another canon now i would not buy any other, the honesty with a big company like canon surprised me, and the back up service in my opinion is second to none and from what ive been told the repair comes with full six month warranty and would not have been the 3 figure sum i read it would be. i hope this helps but dont try the battery compartment fix if you intend to send it to canon which i highly reccomend as this g9 camera is realy worth the time and money

My Kodak Easyshare Z1275 has short battery life. sometimes even newly charged 2600 MaH batteries cause problems. Powers up, lens extends, opens screen to set time and date then powers down. Sometimes i can take a picture or two before it powers down. This is a known problem to Kodak but they want $90 to repair it. Can anyone tell me how to repair it myself. If I can't I will throw it away and use my Cannon exclusively.
