Having problems with your Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera ?

While filming the camera just stopped and turned off but the lense was still on. ithought it was the battery so fully charged the battery but camera won't turn back on :(


Answers :

Most of the time this is from loose screws inside the camera that cause a short and leave the camera useless with a no power problem. For help with this, you'll need to have it fixed which generally requires a part be replaced. Try this site: www.camerasandparts.com They just service the Powershots exclusively and they are very familiar with this problem. It runs $89 all in for parts, labor and shipping back, plus they include the service for the camera too and even the shipping back. The big plus with them is they do the no power correction so the screws don't come loose again. A great place if you need help with a Canon Powershot.
I would like to say that the fallen screws shorted the circurit board. More details see Who killed my G9?

Power doesn't work properly. When I turn off camera with power button, lense stays out. When I turn on, the lense goes in then back out again, but after a few seconds, I get the message: "Please turn camera off then on again." If I don't do anything, the camera will turn off by itself, and the lense will go in. Battery is fully charged, and nothing dramatic happened to start this problem...

Battery Problem When fully charged the camera will work for a few hours. It can be switched off annd back on again and will run with no little loss of charge after 8 hours or so.
