Button stuck down! Try removing the battery to see if lack of power will return the button. If that fails take it back to the seller under warranty terms.

Camera doesn't turn on


Try to clean the corrosion off the battery contacts. If not give it to Nikon they may be a little expensive but they will restore the camera to it's original condition.

Camera lens is stuck in out position, but screen is not on, beeps three times when i push the on/off button


This may help: connect the camera with the charging cord.
press and hold the ON/OFF button and the PLAY button.
(the one that allows you to see the pictures you just took).
hold them until the light on the charger cord starts flashing and then the screen turns on and the lens retracts.

After start button is pushed several low buzzes is heard


Better check that power supply & where it plugs in at out. Also,make sure all the connections are plugged in tight inside. Never assume that a replaced part is good & if you went after-market for the power supply, don't go super cheap. Buy a good one with a good warranty & the same if not more juice than the original.

Beeps repeatedly, lense won't retract...won't take pictures?


Hi Jeanice21, I just posted the same problem a few minutes ago with my SD400. I followed a few steps of the suggested solutions and here's what worked for me.

1) take apart the front and back by unscrewing the six screws holding the camera together
2) on the left of the flash, there are two little retangular holes with grooved dials in them
3) using a little flat head screwdriver, push up or down to turn the grooves while power up in the movie or capture mode
4) the lens retracted at this point and my camera started working again. Good luck!

Power button


[I just posted this in another thread. I hope it helps.] My wife brought this camera home from work for me to look at. It had the sunken/broken power button problem.  The T-shaped hinge was broken where it connects to the power button section. I couldn't see any way to glue or repair it that would be strong enough so I came up with an alternate fix. 
The actual power switch is below the broken button, just a touch below the "ON/OFF" text. I decided to make a button that pushed the switch directly rather than pivoting like the original. 
I needed a push-button shaped object with a shoulder on it (so it wouldn't fall through the hole I was going to drill in the back). I ended up using a small green LED (3mm size I think). I drilled a hole big enough for it to move but not so big it would fall through. I cut the leads off flush with the body and sanded them flat. The hole I drilled lines up with the little bump on the original plastic switch piece. 
So I put the LED in place, the original plastic piece over it and added a little bit of self adhesive felt (that you would stick on the bottom of something to protect your furniture) at the top where the silver button is (just to keep the original button from sinking inward). I put the back on the camera and checked that the power button clicked nicely. It did so I put the camera back together and it's as good as new.  
And it has a snazzy green power button now. 
So if you are handy you can probably fix the camera yourself. 
Good luck - Greg
