I've a CanonG9. Sometimes it works, I think is related to the battery. I've 3 batteries. I've cleaned the 3 battery contacts and the contacts inside the camera as much as I could.
However, the camera works only once in a while regardless which battery I use.

Hi!
Welcome to Just Answer My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you today to resolve or identify Your Problem.

Your problem seems to be with the main circuit board it is not getting the power supply properly

bent the battery lever up a bit for contact but do it if you are confident as some little force can break them

if they are ok then repair the camera because the repairing is not possible at home.Befour send repairing house follow the few steps....

1. Remove the battery and memory card from the camera.
2. Let the camera sit with the battery and memory card removed
for approximately 20 minutes.
3. Clean your battery contacts with a clean cloth.
4. Reinstall the battery and power on the camera. If your camera still
doesn't turn on, unfortunately, your camera will require service to
correct the problem. I apologize for this inconvenience.
