My Ixus has orked fine for a long time and but now it hangs during startup.
What happens is that the Startup picture is displayed, the lens comes out and then it just hangs. No buttons work, and no error message on the display (No E18 or anything like that).
After a few seconds the camera turns off. If I turn it back on, the lens retracts just fine, the startup image comes on the lens comes out, and it hangs again. Shuts off after a few seconds. This is the same for both phto and video mode.
Starting up in playback and then switching to other mode gives the same result.
Playback seems to work fine, althoug I don't have any pics on the memory card. Menus and changing settings when started in playback mode work just fine.

It's very common for users to try too large a capacity or even the later SDHC cards which were designed long after your PowerShot SD400 / Digital Ixus 50. That camera can only accept SD cards to a maximum 2GB capacity, and with some brands it's a bit fussy and will only accept 1GB.
Also note that your camera does not need high speed SD cards, if you put an advanced speedy model in there it will work (subject to the previous restrictions) but your camera lacks the ability to make use of the speed.
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. Click Canon CCD Advisory for details.
