Question about Canon PowerShot S400 / IXUS 400 Digital Camera
The mode switch on my S400 will occasionally not switch to the replay and there is just a black screen. Sometimes it will repaly after a delay of time. Then it will start working fine and I will not have any more problems with it. What can cause this problem to just happen once in a while? Can this problem be fixed? Thank You for your help.
This could be a main board problem or a simple loose connector Canon customer service will advise of a repair possibility- It may be pricey

Have you checked the display mode you're in? If you have the display set to off (to save power) and also the picture review time set to off, then you'll just see a black screen. Try pressing the 'Disp.' button below the screen when the camera is on - it should cycle through different settings with each press: Off, On, On with picture info. Similarly, in the playback mode this will show you more or less info about the picture you are viewing.
Even if the display is switched off, if you have your 'review' option in the menu set to anything other than Off (i.e. 2 seconds), then you should see the picture you've taken appear on the screen straight after taking it.
If it's not that, then I don't know the answer....
