Having problems with your Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera ?

Will not turn on, and battery is good

\015 G9 will not turn on, and battery is good\015

Answers :

Lots of people go through this on the G9. Certain screws inside often come loose inside and short out the camera leaving it with no power. A great place to service these is: www.camerasandparts.com All they work on are the Canon Powershots and they do excellent work. It's $89 through them for the parts / labor to fix this, and they service up the camera at the same time when it's being repaired, plus they cover the shipping going back. On the G9's, they also do some correction inside the camera so that the screws don't come loose again inside and cause this problem. If you need to have it fixed, they're the place for this G9 problem.
