Smoke fume from canon sd400

\015 My canon sd400 just emitted smoke fumes last week. i took out the battery and all and left it for a week. now when i try to use it the battery only lasts about 20 minutes or even less. can a battery emit smoke like that? should i just replace the battery?\015

Answers :

You should send the camera with the battery for service to find out if there is a defect on any internal circuit boards, or if the fault is actually the battery. There is no reliable way for you to determine this yourself, unless you have the proper setup and training to service these cameras.

Canon SD400 I dropped my SD400 and it will turn on, but the shutter will not retract. However, the screen comes on in color and then goes black and says no image. I can access the menu screen while on the picture taking mode. If I move to anything else the camera beeps three times and turns off. What should I do? Can it be fixed? Should I take it somewhere to get it fixed... and where can I take it?
