Canon G1x problem !!
4 months ago

I bought my Canon G1x in February and ran into a problem a few weeks ago - almost every time I would insert a newly charged battery into the camera and try to turn it on, it won't turn on. I would then have to take it out and put it back in a few times, sometimes with a bit more pressure on the battery, for it to turn on. It's very frustrating because I never know how long it will take for my camera to turn on every time.

Has anyone else had this problem? Is this a battery problem? Should I try buying a new battery? I should mention that before this problem started my sister borrowed the camera and she dropped it about 3 feet off the ground onto cement (hard enough that it made a scratch on the camera). I'm worried that this could have something to do with it as well...
