Question about Canon PowerShot S400 / IXUS 400 Digital Camera
I can take pictures, and then sometimes it shows up as "memory card error." When this happens all my pictures are lost. I can turn it off and then back on and sometimes the pictures come back. Sometimes I have to turn it on and off a few times to get the "error" message to go away. I've bought new memory cards, but that didn't make any difference.
1 set date to 31-12-2030 23h59 and switch camera off.
2 wait two minutes, day will be 01-01-2003 and camera asks you to set the date
3 take away memory card
4 set the date to today
5 insert memory card again
Now your error should be solved.

Hi greenstina - I had the same problem on my PowerShot S400 as well as I couldn't reformat the compact flash when using the feature on the camera. The solution that worked for me was reseating a small battery (about the size of a watch battery) in side the camera. To get to it you have to take the case apart.
I found this solution by googling and typing:
powershot S400 E50 error
I'm not sure if this site will allow me to add the web link - but this link had a picture of the camera and where the battery is located.
It fixed my problem, but I do not know if this is a permanent fix. There seem to be a lot of complaints about this problem though.
