My Powershot G3 (16 months old, just out of guarantee) suddenly
broke down:

  • Symptoms like the batterie was dead.

  • After a full reload (LED was green) the battery still looked dead.

  • Putting the battery in my G5 proved that the battery was OK.

  • Suddenly the G3 was alive for only 1 shot and an errormessage E24

flashed up and the camera went out again.
-I also checks checked several CF cards, that didn't help.

I looked in the forum as well as I could, but couldn't find any
mention of E24.

Anybody seen this before (and repaired it), or should I just bring
the camera in for repair?

well unfortunately E24 indicates some electronic error on some
cicruit board inside the camera and I'm affraid that the only thing
you can do it to send it to a Canon service center...
