SOURCE: My Canon Powershot SD400 won't turn on and lense won't go back in

Unfortunately the lens assemblies in these compact digital cameras are quite delicate. The drop probably knocked the barrels of the lens out of alignment preventing it from moving. You can try to GENTLY twist the lens back and forth, you may be able to click it back into alignment allowing it to function normally. If the gentle manipulation fails to fix the problem you will need to get the camera serviced by a professional. There are quality repair services on the web who will work on your camera.

There is usually a button for turning the screen on and off, or only on for previewing (browsing images). (and sometimes there is an option for having the screen on without the On-Screen Display)

I don't know exactly which one on your camera... sometimes the up button, sometimes there is a little symbol.

Play with it, and eventually you'll find the right button. =-]

SOURCE: I opened up my battery pack, it smelled like smoke

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.

SOURCE: I have a canon powershot SD400 elph. Camera menu

I'm guessing you bought a new 4GB SDHC card. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the card uses is very different. Unfortunately your camera was designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, but a SDHC card will not work with your camera.

You'll need to use standard SD cards (usually those 2GB or less). But if you really want to use a 4GB card, do a Google search for 4GB SD "non HC", with the non HC in quotes. Believe Transcend makes one.

I want to take pictures of The Northern Lights. What setting?


Correct, you don't want the flash.

Some cameras have a fireworks mode, Unfortunately, the SD400 doesn't. As far as I can tell, the SD400 doesn't even have a landscape mode, which would have been my second choice.

I'd start by turning off the flash in Auto mode. Unfortunately, the camera is going to try to make the night sky a medium gray. You'll have to reduce the exposure using the exposure compensation feature. Review your pictures and examine the histograms to fine-tune the exposure.

My other approach would be to use the manual mode, reviewing the images and histograms.

Either way, take lots of pictures. Feel free to experiment with various exposures. Remember, there is no "magic bullet." Your sky isn't going to look the same as mine, so my settings won't necessarily do you any good.

Canon Powershot SD400 won't upload pics to computer


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

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!

You mean SD400 camera doesn't show any error sign and it just doesn't have live view to shoot picture?

The following blog outlines some repair options for a lens error. They won't work for all cases, but they're worth a try if the camera's no longer under warranty:

Beep signals should be mentioned in the manual, perhaps on the more comprehensive manual in the PDF file on the CD. Each set of beeps have a meaning. Check out the Canon tech support team.
