Question about Canon PowerShot S400 / IXUS 400 Digital Camera
Have you tried reseting the camera? remove batteries and replace after several minutes, if there's no other way, or in addition. Could also be a fault with the card. Try with a known good card, and see if there's any difference. Check to see if the contact pins in the card slot are all aligned, or if you have any bent ones out of place. Post back, let us know how it turned out.

The display being blank can be due to failure of the LCD or the CCD which is the optical sensor of the camera. So to confirm check the older picture to be seen on the display. Confirm this by checking the card on your PC. If the images/picture is seen to be of good quality, then the LCD can be faulty, fault on the linking cable or the control board.since you are able to seen the ICONS the LCD is good , Now if the picture taken are seen well the CCD is also OK and the fault seems to be a digital logic gate failure as there is no switching of the circuit .
This might require a probe and it might be a relative issue in the motherboard circuit or the processsor. Remove battery , press down all buttons to drain off voltage and see if the camera resets.
