Have you enabled the flash function in the camera menu? Look for a menu item that says something like Internal Flash and follow that through

A great place to get help with these G9 no power problems is: www.camerasandparts.com
They just specialize in the service for the Canon Powershot models and they are very familiar with this specific problem. The nice thing with them is for $89, you get everything included in their service package for the G9, all parts / labor, shipping back and the service for the camera too. The best part, they include the no power correction to the internal screws for all of the G9's they service. If you need a hand, www.camerasandparts.com is the place for service on these. The work is excellent and their pricing and knowledge of these cameras is what I liked.

There is a problem in the G9's where screws come loose and short out the camera inside. This place does the repair and they correct them inside so it won't keep happening www.camerasandparts.com They're excellent for any problem on a Canon. Canon no longer services the G9 which is unfortunate because the G9 was one of their best cameras. Cameras and Parts will be able to help you, that's a common problem on your model and they do the correction, plus service and repair the camera. It's $89 through them, pretty much unbeatable and they service is as good as it gets on these cameras.

I was told it happens when the battery is low

Your camera probably developed a common short that the G9's sometimes get. You'll need to have it serviced and if you go to this site: www.CamerasAndParts.com they service the Canon Powershots exclusively and they are excellent on these models. It's $89 with them and you get parts, labor, servicing for the camera, and most important they perform the no power correction on the camera too. Shipping is included on the way back with them too. For $89 they're tough to beat. They are experts on these models and the only place I'd go for a Canon Powershot. Good luck with yours.

On the back of the camera, on the main dial, you see a flash logo. Press that and on the screen (in recording mode) you see flash automatic and flash off. choose what you ant and press ok. Ready. Did not need a manual for that one.

Probably your memory card is full, you should erase some pictures from the camera and it will work. It happened to my Canon G9 . I erased some old pictures from my memory card and the message Communication Error disappeared.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

This is not at random, The camera wants to keep sound during the whole recording on the same level. so when it is getting quiet, the gain is automatically raised. When the sounds becomes to loud the gain is lowered. So only when the sound level while you are shooting stays the same, you won't have this issue.

it sounds like you hit the display button, which is there to save battery power, except, you should still be able to see the pics you take, puzzling...
