My battery-powered 1400 switched off while I was downloading images to the pc. Recharged the batteries but now when I switch camera on, it switches itself off half a second later. The batteries are good. I fear it is stuck in USB mode and although have tried reconnecting to the pc, the camera has become an introvert. How can I cure it?

I doubt there is battery problem, have you tried switching on laptop without battery and connecting through the laptop charger? most probable your battery is not taking the charge. so suggest you to disconnect the battery and try using laptop with charger then you'll find the problem.
Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.
If you were able to take one shot before the camera packed up it can be that the battery does not have charge on it and so after the first shot it has drained the battery. So check out the charge on it or repeat charging to test once again.
Other wise it can be that the camera control unit is faulty. Try and reset by removing battery for a while and trying once again.
Try new good quality batteries. i experienced this issue last night. Even after replacing the batteries i had the same problem though the batteries were from a very cheap pack & i'd had them a while. The camera worked fine once i'd recharged my normal batteries. I'm no expert but I expect switching the camera on must use much more power then review mode causing the camera to switch off before it has time to tell you your batteries are low. Hope this solves your problem!
The Lithium batteries that are provided with the camera will supply approximately 200 images. The Ni-MH batteries will provide approximate 100 shots per charge. The B-10LPB Lithium Polymer battery will allow 500 - 700 shots per charge and can be recharged approximately 500 times. B-12LPB Lithium Polymer Battery will deliver twice the power allowing 1000- 1400 shots per charge and can be recharged approximately 500 times. The Alkaline batteries, although can be used, is not recommended due to very low battery life.
You can download captured images with either one of the four following accessories. 1) Included Serial Interface kit 2) Optional Floppy Disk Adapter FD-A2 for floppy disk drive 3) Optional PC Card Adapter PC- AD3 for PC card slot 4) Optional Image Memory Card Reader SM-R1 for USB interface.
