Try a hard reset of camera electronics. Canon may have a hidden code to do this with. Suspect your electronics are fubar and you may have to go shopping since repair is not cost effective. Shame - good camera.

Canon Ixus 105 lens fail restart camera
is such a common fault that I hope you don't mind me pasting my stock
generic answer below. No point in reinventing the wheel!
Stuck lenses are probably the most common
reason that compact digital cameras get thrown away, but there's a fair
chance of recovering use of your camera again
The fault is
commonly caused by dirt or grit blocking the mechanism, or due to it
having suffered a recent fall. Another common cause is that the camera
was in a pocket or bag and the power button accidentally activated and
tried to open the lens against resistance. The mechanism may have simply
dislodged or there may be parts which have broken.
If your camera
is still under warranty and has definitely not been subject to misuse
then contact the Canon service department in your country to find out about a free repair. If
the warranty has expired though a professional repair will far exceed
cost of replacing your camera. You will therefore have nothing to lose
trying to fix this yourself.
Please click here
and you will be taken to an excellent article provided by the Camera
Repair website. For the most part, you'll be guided on how to physically
manipulate your camera to try and clear the fault.

When downloading photos, camera reads as "No Images"
I would look at the connection ports. Sometimes dust,dirt gets in there..Try blowing air into the connectors. You can use you mouth breath but a small air compressor works better..But I wouldn't over do it with to much air pressure... My iPhone mic was dirty...No one could hardly hear me...I done this and now they hear me good...Worth a try...It could bent prongs in the port or a bad cable. Good luck.

Canon G9: could not turn
The Canon G9 has a problem where two screws in the top of the camera work themselves loose over time, then fall out and short out the fuse on what's called the DC/DC board.
This board needs to be replaced, both screws need to be found within the camera (if both fell out), and they need to be put back in place and held in with 'Locktite' so they don't fall out again.
If you do a Google search for "g9 no power repair" you will see in the #3 position Darntoothysam com, where you can have this repair performed for $85 total! This includes the part, installation, and return shipping of the camera.
If you want to do the repair yourself (no instructions included, sorry) you may purchase the part you need for $48 including shipping.
Hope this helps!
