Canon Powershot G9 problem
by fac68 - 7/21/10 5:32 AM
I have received excellent performance from my G9 since buying it 2+ years ago. However, a month ago, under no remarkable circumstances, it would no longer power up, and it was not a battery issue. I took it to the camera store I bought it from and was told to pay $25 to send it to Canon, and expect a charge of $225 if it is fixable. That last part, $225, seems arbitrary and possibly designed to push me into a newer model. I have had a string of Canon cameras and liked them all, but now I'm waiting 4-6 weeks to be told the news, which I suspect I already know.
Anyone else have experience or a feel for what is likely to happen next?
