Having problems with your Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera ?

No power? without any damage, ie droping bumping ect, my g9, which i love, just stopped powering up. Any thoughts/simlar troubles?


Answers :

You just need to have the camera serviced for this no power problem. This is common on the G9 but there's a correction that can be done so this problem never happens again. It has to do with two loose screws in the camera that can result in a short and no power on the G7 and the G9 cameras. 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 fix available on their site for your model so you can get it taken care of for very little and have the camera serviced up completely at the same time. Try that site, that's where a lot of people go for help with the Powershots, good luck with it.
Your camera probably has a short inside (most often from a loose screw on this model). Try the site www.camerasandparts.com They are excellent for help with these Canons

I have a Samsung L100. Its only a couple of months old and its never been dropped or damaged. When I turn it on, the power button turns blue, the lens opens, then it beeps two or three times and the shuts down - except that the blue light stays on. You can't use it and it you can't turn it off all the way without pulling the battery out. The screen doesn't light up or anything. The camera is totally useless now. I've found a few reviews online that say theirs do the same thing. Is there a

Beeping This is my daughters camera she got it for christmas last year, it worked fine until a couple of months ago. When you push the power button with rechargeable batteries in it ... it starts up but then the screen flashes to Low Battery and then it starts beeping and wont stop until you take out the batteries. We have tried other batteries and with those the camera wont even turn on. Please help me because she loves this camera and is always sneaking it into school with her.

Has stopped taking pictures. It will focus and act like it is ready to shoot, but with or without the flash, does not photograph. Everything else seems to be working fine, screen, modes, power, zoom... just won't shoot.


Sounds like the tip of the shutter release button has worn off. It's merely a tiny plastic nib that breaks off quite easily and commonly. Replacement of the shutter button is relatively easy. ... Canon PowerShot A510 Digital Camera

Battery Problem I have trouble with apparent battery failure due to bad contacts on the slide-out tray thingie that holds the batterys. Jamming it in several times when I change batteries sometimes helps, but often the camera will stop working in the middle of a shoot and indicate the battery is discharged. A quick in-and-out a couple of times of the thingie restores full battery power, but by then I've probably missed my picture. Anyone else have this problem? Other than that (and piss-poor aut


I've never had that problem, all I can suggest would be to fiddle with the contacts in the grip, or put a folded bit of paper behind the battery before you put on the little door to push it in further. ... Olympus Camedia E-20N Digital Camera

My 7 year old forced the battery in backwards. I was able to extract it without damaging the camera physically, but now it won't power on. Is there anyway to do a factory reset or is it just shorted out? It's brand new :-(


It's neither of those things. It's physically damaged and your only options are a professional repair or camera replacement. Children are horribly expensive! ... GE G3 WP Digital Camera

When you press the power on button the camera lens starts to move out stops goes in then out again stops the screen does not illuminate at all.IF you then press the power button the lens tries to retract slightly but then stops and again nothing else happens. battery is fully charged. if you press the replay button screen and camera behaves as normal and you can view the pictures taken lens usually retracts all the way to its docked position again if it was nearly all the way out.

My S3 IS was working perfectly until one day it powered on but simply would not snap a photo. And once it's powered on, I can't turn it off. I have to leave it on and it eventually powers down after some time. I've tried new batteries and turning it on several times without any luck. The screen powers on and I can access the menus, but it won't take a picture or zoom. Any ideas?
