FYI My S400 would not start sometimes. If I banged it in the palm of my hand occasionally it would then work. I was also having terrible trouble with batteries not working and showing low charge when they had been charged.. I opened it up as a last resort. On the front left side below the shutter button there was a small ribbon cable that under a magnifying glass I could see was slightly out of line. I reseated it and the camera has acted flawlessly since.

Am curious - I do not see the “Sensor” in this teardown? My immaculate S400 never dropped, not a scratch or scuff-mark, suddenly stopped working - dead sensor. The shutter still works and it can play images taken on another camera. But the display is near-black in record mode and images taken are “pure black”. It literally went from perfect to dead in one power-cycle. I was wondering if something may have come loose in there that a tear-down would identify?
