Is your battery pack genuine? Often non-genuine batteries wont charge correctly and have been known to burn or short out. If it is genuine however you should have the camera, charger and battery checked out by Canon for any potential shortages etc. Li-ion batteries can be dangerous to mess around with, be careful when pulling it apart.

Smoke fume from canon sd400


You should send the camera with the battery for service to find out if there is a defect on any internal circuit boards, or if the fault is actually the battery. There is no reliable way for you to determine this yourself, unless you have the proper setup and training to service these cameras.

Camera turns on but shutter does not open. green light comes on then it beeps twice and shuts down. You can view pictures fine though


You mean SD400 camera doesn't show any error sign and it just doesn't have live view to shoot picture?
If yes, its problem of bad CCD imager and Canon will provide free of cost repair facility for SD400 camera.

Canon SD400 Powershot wont turn on


I read a part solution on your web site about my Canon sd400 failing to start. The message gave a few free words about a micro swith in the cover. I couldnt find it! I called Canon tech and they said there was jo such switch. I packed up the camera and sent it off for a fix and a free firmware update. Probably going to cost $80. But I think it was the right thing to do!!
