G15 Suddenly Won't Power On
6 months ago

Hi,

My lightly used G15, not even 4 months out of warranty, suddenly will not power on.

I have tried a freshly charged battery (I have 2 genuine Canon batteries), with and without a card and have inspected the battery contacts which look fine. I have tried holding the ON/OFF button for up to a minute as well.

The camera is lightly used (a backup to my main system) and is kept in a case in a smoke-free, dry environment.

I would hate to have to spend $200 (Canon's flat service fee) if it is something simple.

Does anyone know of any special key combinations to hold or something to power up with some kind of reset?

Thanks,
