Question about Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera

3 Answers

My canon powershot g9 will not turn on

While taking a picture, the camera died, or so I thought, with the lens out. Once I charged the battery I was able to retract the lens, but then the screen was black and so were the new pictures I took. And now, with a fully charged battery, the camera will not even turn on. A man said the sensor went out and to fix it would be between $175-$250. Is there another way to fix this?

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.

Sounds like the popular loose screw problem on your G9 (G7's often develop this problem too). You can have it serviced at this place: www.camerasandparts.com They are not expensive at all and the work through them is superb. They do a fix inside the camera so this loose screw problem doesn't keep happening. They'd be the place for help with that one.

Most likely a loose screw inside and it shorted a circuit in the G9. For service, we recommend www.CamerasAndParts.com They tend to be the best for repairs on the Canons. I'll post a video below on the problem with a link to them if you need to have it fixed.

I turned off my camera (Canon powershot G9). After 2 seconds i turned it back on the lens popped out but the camera wouldnt turn on. Now the lens is still popped out, wont go back in. I tried recharging...


hi would you tell me more about condition? does it power on, do you see back of lcd any message, if power on, then you have lens unit is defective. no power at all, then you have either power control pcd(dc/dc convoertor) or main pcb. If main fail, then you have to send canon factory. but lens unit or power pcb problem can solve in your local repair shop. They would chage you around $65 to 165 depend on what they really want to charge. Thanks and best regard!

Will not turn on


This is likely the cause of an internal screw that has come loose, it's very common on the G9. A great place to get help with this G9 problem is: camerasandparts.com since they just specialize in these powershots. They not only have the fix available but they have the correction so this never comes back, that comes with their no power service for the G9's automatically. I hope that helps, that's the place if you need help with a powershot, best of luck

Somebody was using my canon powershot g9 and when they gave it back to me the lens was out and it was dead. Ive tried everything from charging the batteries and everything nothing is working. Please help!


Camera likely has a common short that comes up on the G9 camera. You just need to get the camera serviced and you'll be back in business again. The site that specializes in service for the powershots is: camerasandparts.com They're amazing if you need help with one of these, that's all they deal with. The good thing with them is they do the correction so that common short never comes back again on the G9. Good luck, that's the place if you need help with a powershot model, they're excellent when it comes to service for these.

Our G9 is stuck with the lens zoomed out. If we turn it on or turn it off, no change, stuck.


Go with this place: www.camerasandparts.com They charge $89 for the lens error service package on the G9 and they do excellent work. The neat thing with them is they don't just do the repair, they service the camera up as well, plus shipping going back is included in their service package too which is nice. Much more affordable than Canon and they are experts on the Powershots, the Canons are all they specialize in! I hope that helps you with getting it going again.

Canon G9 reads E16. What should I do?


You can go to the website: www.camerasandparts.com and get their email address. They can help you for sure. They only service canon cameras and they are wonderful for help with the canons. Pretty much the place for help with a broken powershot and they charge about half of what canon does. The work with them is superb.

Go with this place: www.camerasandparts.com They are about half of what Canon charges and they do awesome work on the Canon Powershots. All they specialize in are the Canons, they do really great work and they are so much less than Canon on the service.

My Cannon G9 digital camera wont power up even though I have a fully charged battery?


This is usually from a loose screw inside the camera, a screw inside the camera can come loose and cause a short which is very common on the G9. If you go to: www.camerasandparts.com all they deal with is service for the Canon Powershots. They're great if you need a hand with one of these and they automatically do the no power correction on the G7's and the G9's they service which is nice. They are about the least expensive out there at $89 and they include the service and the shipping back. The best part, they do excellent work which is a must for me. Hope that helps you some.
