Having problems with your Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera ?

Our powershot g-9 won't power on. We tried it with a completely different, new battery pack, and it still won't turn on. Any other suggestions?



Answers :

These cameras often get a short from some loose screws inside. You need to have it serviced but I'd recommend a shop that is really familiar with this problem so they can do the correction inside of the camera, thus it won't happen again. The shop that just does the service exclusively on the powershots is www.camerasandparts.com They are excellent for these and I really mean excellent. They'll service the whole camera, do the repair, and they are one of the few that actually do the correction automatically so you don't keep having this problem. If you're technical you can buy the parts and repair it on your own but you won't get the service for the camera which is nice. I hope that helps, that site I gave you has the service available on their site for your model with a no power problem. Good luck with it.
To fix this problem you would need to find a repair place. Since you have a canon, I would suggest camerasandparts.com They specialize in these models. That's where many people go for help with this problem. They give wonderful service, plus your problem is on their site. Hope that helps.
