Your menus will have options to be able to turn off the flash in certain modes.
The camera also has external buttons which will turn the flash on or off. Read your user manual.
The button which has the SET inside has four selectors. The right selector has a flash on/off button to turn the flash on or off. The flash usually will flash when set to flash all the time and not in AUTO mode. The AUTO mode may not allow you to turn off the flash. You probably have to choose another mode to allow the flash to be turned off.

No I am afraid you cannot use this as a web cam. I have asked Canon about this and they said that it isn't capable. Sorry

The switch might be faulty or just that you switch it very fast by passing the modes from pic to video.

Here you will find the tips for taking better photos with less camera shaking. Tips 1. Composing and holding the camera with less camera shaking. For clearer images, hold the camera firmly not to cause camera shaking. 1) For maximum stability, hold the camera firmly well over the grip and keep your right elbow lightly pressed against your body. 2) Support the lens or the camera body with your left hand from below. 3) Look into the optical viewfinder as if pressing your forehead to the camera. 4) Do not stand straight, but with one foot stepping forward for taking better balance of your body. 2. Change the composing and holding the camera according to the situation for securer photographing. (Particularly when you take photos using the LCD monitor.) 1) Lean against the wall. 2) Put the camera on a fixed object like a table. 3) Ensure the camera holding by pressing the elbow against the handrail. 4) Use the tripod. 3. Move the zoom control towards wide-angle if your camera has the zoom function. Moving the zoom control towards tele-angle, camera-shaking will easily happen. If your camera has the zoom function, we advise you to take photos by zooming towards wide-angle. 4. Higher shutter speed will produce better images. Slower shutter speed may produce more possible camera-shaking. If your camera has a choice of shutter speeds, we advise you to select higher shutter speed for less camera shaking.

Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct your problem. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them:

And here's a video summary of the steps:

Its a very common problem with S400,S410 and some others.

As a case study, see the following error message on the Canon IXUS 130 when trying to view some photos previously stored in the memory card SDHC

"Memory Card Error"

Every single photo stored on the memory card becomes inaccessible after the above error message. In addition, no more photos can be stored on the memory card. In short, the card can not be read or written.

Cause:
The above error message that makes all the pictures inaccessible is mainly caused due to corruption of the memory card. Reasons why you are responsible for the above error message is virus infection, interrupted read / write operation, and human error.

Resolution:
The resolution for the above error message is the format of memory card into the camera. The process erases all data previously stored and allows you to save the new data. While the format is a good resolution for users who do not require the old data, it is fatal to users such as photographers, detective agencies, etc, to save critical data on your memory card. However, the formatted data recovery day is now an easy process. It is therefore necessary to use an advanced part of third parties. A tool for image recovery is readily available on the Internet by one click.

Data Recovery is an application of high-end recovery that recovers data from almost all formats SDHC Card, XD and MMC. The read-only photo recovery tool also allows you to restore data in the defined location. The software runs on Mac OS X and Windows.

Hope helps.
