Question about Canon PowerShot S400 / IXUS 400 Digital Camera

1 Answer

No replay and cannot connect to comp.

Hi, I recently got my Canon Digital Ixus 400 on ebay. When I first used it, it worked fine, I could see photos I'd already taken on my camera, and I could even upload them onto my computer.
After a few weeks without using it, I've found that the replay function on the camera doesn't work, and there is no signal from the camera to my computer: whenever I plug it in, nothing happens, both the camera and computer remain the same and totally ignore each other, as I've checked on the control panel.
I've unistalled my printer/scanner and reinstalled the canon software, but still no luck.
Please help me!

    I've found the problem and it seems that my record/replay button was broken when I looked underneath the casing. I'll have to find some way to fix the mechanism, but I won't need any help now. Thanks for looking, and thanks for neto07 for trying to help!

Hi, i'm experiencing pretty much the same problem with an ixus 400. Try to slide with your fingernail gently under the record/replay switch on its right side and push it to the left (towards the replay sign). This way I can use the replay function on the camera and I it connects to my computer. It is a rather uncomfortable and temporary solution, but I don't know any other for the moment. In the next few days I'll try to disassemble the camera and look for a permanent solution.

Hope this helps, at least for a while!

Regards
Ernst

Can i use a high speed flash card, because I recently bought 4GB and when replaying the photos, it displays white lines


I would try a high speed flash card. Or a different one either way if you are getting lines. You can also clean the contacts on card and in camera with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab

Blank LCD screen


First, let's try the obvious. Did you accidentally hit the "DISP" button (bottom row of buttons, third from the left)?

If not, you mention you can see the photos on the PC. Do they look fine, or are they also black or distorted?
