All you have to do is lay your camera with the LCD side down, make sure its on a soft surface like a carpet or a pillow. Once you have it laying down, put a peice or two of newspaper, or any paper, on top of the camera. and then hit it a few times with something. like a brush or anything hard like that. it worked for me. :) good luck.

I hit the camera with my hand about 10 times, the screen came back. When you hit the camera, be careful do not hit LCD or any fragile part, just hit main body. It does hurt your hand though.
Wired camera, I would not buy any nikon from now on. Rubbish!

I fixed mine with a couple of heavy !thumps! Try not to use something hard like a table tennis bat like I did in the beginning of my "fixing" process. Your hand is the best object to hid it with, but not slapping it with your fingers, rather with the base part of your hand like when you would hid a nail into a piece of wood.

OMG!!!! I was panicking the night before I was due to leave for 6 month travelling and my camera s6 completely gave up on me - BLACK SCREEN CURSE!!! I followed the somewhat mental advice on here to give it a few whacks AND IT WORKED!!! So happy. I laid it on a cushion and smacked it with firstly, the palm of my hand, and then the tv remote. GUARANTEED RESULT!

You should be able to turn the screen on while taking pictures so that you can see what is going on a little easier. Here is a link to the manual where you can find where in the menu to turn the LCD on. I tried to get the manual for myself so that I could give you page numbers and such, but it requires that i give a serial number number off the camera, so be sure to have your camera handy when you do this.

Camera LCD is black


If you want to follow my way to try fixing it yourself, keep reading and do it at your own risk. You paid several hundread dollars for the camera and I just paid $20 for it. Therefore, I tried everything I can to make it work, even if I had to open the camera body to play with the inside. Fortunately, it was not neccessary to take it apart.

Once again, AT YOUR OWN RISK to follow my way to get back your real time image screen.
Read the following steps once and make sure you understand before action.

(1) Load your camera with a freashly recharged battery.
(2) Switch on to see if it's working and still without the real time screen.
(3) Switch it off, and hold it tight in you palm with the LCD facing inward.
(4) Now, with you palm up, you should be able to see the model name 'CoolPix S6' under the lens and the flash.
(5) While holding the camera and aiming at the 'CoolPix S6', raise your other hand with the fist next to your ear.
(6) Match the aim as describe in(4) to the aim of your elbow 's protruded part and make pratice moves. Yes, you'are going to smack it
to your elbow.
(7) When you are ready, try first not to hit your elbow too hard once.
(8) Switch the camera on to check. If you have the 'Screen' now, congratulation! If not, repeat (4) to (8) but with a stronger impact
Force. You might have to try more times until your elbow could not take the sore.

I got mine fixed by performing the above steps just once, but I started at a medium impact force. Before this fix, I tried to whack it on both sides, the top and the bottom to my knee cap.

Why I chose knee cap and elbow? They hurt if you strike too hard. The target is to apply enough impact force to shake but not break the parts inside the camera.

Good Luck!!
