Powershot G16 did not propper start

I am searching for a reset during Power on. Batterie remove and/or pressing some keys did not work.

Did you try removing the battery and holding the on switch on for about 30 seconds then replace the battery?

yes with and without memory card. pressing "FUNC. SET" during power up will show the time.

If you now move the camera, the date will be displayed additionally.
Turning the control wheel changes the background color from the display.

Because the quick response from the Canon support was send in for repair.

That's $135 US dollars and I think you did well with that!!

I don't think so.Christmas and New Year documents with a smartphone. All low-light images are noisy.

My next camera will not be a Canon anymore. Probably an Olympus.
