Having problems with your Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera ?

Canon g9 won't turn on...battery is fully charged....mysteriously stopped working.


Answers :

These cameras short out inside from a loose screw. The place that a lot of people go for help with this problem is www.camerasandparts.com They just work on the Canon powershot models and they are wonderful for service, about half the cost of most place for about twice the service. The nice thing about them is they do a fix inside the camera so the screw problem won't happen again. They're the place for help with these, lots of luck with it.\015\012

Maybe it has some imperfect contacts at the battery, or worst case: there are software problems.

Try cleaning the battery contacts with a soft cloth and try again. If it doesn't work you have to take the camera to a Canon dealer for repairs.

My Camera will not turn on I have a Canon PowerShot SD750 Digital Elph. About 2 weeks ago, it stopped working and just randomly would not turn on. The strange part is, I had just used it about an hour before it stopped working and it seemed to be just fine. I didn't drop it or damage it in any way, so I don't understand why it just stopped turning on just out of the blue.

My fujifilm finepix f480 is brand new and i've only used it about 4 times. Without any incident to start a problem, the charger stopped working and the camera wont turn on at all with the battery in it. The charger light will go on for about 2 minutes and then turn off, and the camera light wont go on at all with the battery in it...is this the camera or the battery or the charger?

HI, my Canon XH A1 stopped suddenly working. The odd thing is that it works in VCR mode but not as a camera, I forgot to turn it off today and then transported it, in it's safe bag, when I took it out (it was outside in this temperature) it wasn't working any longer. I thought it was the battery, but I recharged the batttery at home and it's still not working. What could it be?

Cyber-shot T2 Hello This is probably a long shot but I have had my Sony cybershot T2 for about 1 month now and about 2 weeks ago it just died on me and it won't turn on.

It seems to me that Nikon Point & Shoot cameras, or at least the last 2 that I have bought, have a usable life span of approx 4 or so years before the LCD's decide not to work in turn, makes the camera non usable. I have a 5700, 3.5 years old before it stopped working & a S4, which the LCD also quit working and it is 4 years old, I think my next point & shoot will be a Canon to go along with it's big brother that I bought this year, 50D Does anyone have a solution to this Nikon problem?
