Question about Canon PowerShot S400 / IXUS 400 Digital Camera
When I used to use my camera, it worked fine, but then I put it down for a couple weeks or so and when I tried to use it again, I pressed the ON button, and the lens retracted from half-way out to flat. The camera started to turn on, the screen blinked, and the camera made a beeping sound before shutting itself off. I think the lens is stuck, but I do not know how to fix it. Any suggestions?
The battery packs in these units dont have a very long "shelf life" meaning when you charge the battery you need to use it within a few days or it will loose charge. Have you tried a fresh charged battery? They are very power hungry devices and the more advanced they get the more power they need. How old is this unit? how many charges have you put on the pack? it may be time for a second pack. An emergency backup pack good power is key nowdays.
