Question about Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My canon powershot g9, my pride and joy :(, will not stay on with a full battery. When the battery is fully charged and you press the power button, the lense comes out only half way and the screen does not come on. After a while of trying and the battery is low, the camera will power on like normal and take pics, that is until the battery dies and it will not power on again. I know that this sounds like a battery problem, but I do not want to spend the money on a new battery if it is not.

Yes it does sound like a battery problem. Keep in mind that the rechargeable battery is only meant to last a couple years maximum, regardless of use. You may consider a low-cost generic alternative just to troubleshoot. Here's one from Amazon with reasonably good ratings.

Camera won't turn on. Flashes red and orange lights by the view finder and blue at the s button. Battery is fully charged. Just use the camera the other day and it worked fine


The Canon G9 has a design defect, two screws fall out inside the camera and short out the fuse. If you've never had it fixed for no power before this is most likely what has happened to your camera.

Do a Google search for "canon g9 no power repair" and you will see a full repair service including return shipping of your camera for just $85.

Hope this helps!

Will not turn on


Please make sure that you're using fully charged battery
Remove the battery, press and hold the power button for 5 seconds and then reinsert the battery..
Try using a different battery to check whether the issue is with the battery..
You may also check the battery poles using a multimeter to confirm this if you do not have access to a different battery..
If the issue persists, service may be required.
Thanks for understanding.

Suddenly my G9 won`t start at all. Battery is fully charged


More than likely, your camera has a short from some loose screws inside. A lot of these G9's get this problem.
You get it fixed, it's $89 all in at: www.CamerasAndParts.com
The great thing with that site is they just service the Canon Powershots exclusively and they totally know these cameras. They include the parts, the labor, the service for the camera, the no power correction included, and even the shipping back. It costs $89 for everything with them and they do excellent work on the Powershots.
Good luck with it. If you need help with a Powershot, they're the place for one of these models!

Sounds like you have the short in the camera that a lot of people get on this model. A terrific place for help with this problem is: www.camerasandparts.com It runs $89 all in with the servicing for the camera included. They just work on the Powershots exclusively. They're very familiar with this no power problem on the G9. An excellent place if you need service for a Powershot.

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.
