Having problems with your Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera ?

My Canon g9 is having the "loose screw" problem. Where can I get it fixed?

Answers :

You likely have loose screws inside the camera which is a really common problem on these models. That's mostly often causes this no power thing on the G9 as it shorts something out inside of the camera. An excellent place to get the G9 repaired is camerasandparts.com They have service packages on their site and one of them is for the G9 with no power. That site is excellent for repairs on the Powershot cameras.
The Canon G9 has a problem where two screws in \012the top of the camera work themselves loose over time, then fall out and\012 short out the fuse on what's called the DC/DC board.

This board\012 needs to be replaced, both screws need to be found within the camera \012(if both fell out), and they need to be put back in place and held in \012with 'Locktite' so they don't fall out again.

If you do a Google \012search for "g9 no power repair" you will see in the #3 position \012Darntoothysam com, where you can have this repair performed for $85 \012total! This includes the part, installation, and return shipping of the \012camera.

If you want to do the repair yourself (no instructions \012included, sorry) you may purchase the part you need for $48 including \012shipping.

Hope this helps!

My LCD screen on my Canon Power shot G3 is blank (just white). There are no icons; no viewing of things I wish to photograph. I called customer support they said there was no problem with the CCD image sensor on G series cameras per the Canon service letter of 10/6/05.I would have to pay about $135 plus shipping to get it fixed or trade for another camera which would cost me money also. I'm not happy with this because I assumed that Canon would fix the problem if it appeared on the G series. Ple

When I turn on my Canon PowerShot A75 digital camera, it has streaky pink lines. When that finally clears up,(which may take several minutes) it usually has a pink tint.

What do you suggest?

Batteries need replaced constantly. I am using 2 AA alkaline as instructed. As soon as I put them in it says batteries are low and shuts off. This is happening with all brands of new batteries.

Problem with the firewire port on Canon XL2 camera, computer dose not recognize the camera, can not capture to computer, firewire cable dose not fix the port on the camera well, very loose, is there a fix.

I recently bought a Canon A590. I've taken perhaps 20 photos on half a dozen occasions and I'm having trouble getting the photos onto my computer (only 2 years old, up to date). I can usually only retrieve about 30% of the photos completely, another 50% "half" the photo with the other portions white, gray or black, then 30% I can't access at all. I'm not sure where to start to fix this problem; at this point I'm ready to return the camera and be done withit!

I have a SONY Cybershot DSC W150. When I turn it on the lens goes kut and comes back in several times, then I get the error message "Turn the Power Off and On Again", but doing that does not change anything.
