Camera constantly takes blurred pictures

Appears that the auto focus mechanism is not working, This anomaly is most obvious in lower light situations when focusing is much more critical.

If the camera was new and two months old I would either return it for another one or have Nikon repair the lens assembly under the terms of its warranty.

Sd card is 32m it is only giving 12 images

A 32mb SD card doesn't have a large capacity - depending on the resolution (megapixels) of the camera, a different amount of pictures can be stored. Below is a link to a page that can help you determine what size is right for you.

When i zoom in on my photos on the camera i can see some white, green or red tiny dots. Can you tell me what this is and how to fix it?

This is called digital noise. You could try lowering the ISO and setting the camera to the highest number of megapixels but you won't completely get rid of it.

Cameras don't lose megapixels but users can change the settings for them. Go into the menu and see if your camera is set for the maximum number of megapixels and the highest picture quality.

Just received a mint condition Nikon Coolpix S4 swivel-head digital camera off eBay. Installed new AA alkaline (Duracell) batteries and a new 1GB SD card. From the firt time I fired it up this morning, all...

Without some detailed information on how the unit processes video vs. still images, it won't be possible to say for sure, BUT....

The video resolution is processed at a much lower megapixel setting than still pictures. It may be that the defect in the sensor that is causing the lines is on a section of the sensor that is either not used in video mode, or that the software is processing out the defect when it doesn't need all the pixels to give you an image. I think the first is more likely. In video mode, the camera has to run at a lower resolution so that the electronics can store information fast enough to give you video, so it uses a lower resolution. Since it's using the same sensor, it has to either ignore some of the pixels or just not sample them.

If it is the sensor (this is most likely but can't be sure without testing it), then the only way to correct would be a new sensor. It could also be a bad wiring connection, but either way you'd need to get inside to fix. That would be expensive.

I think you should try to use a lower resolution setting and see if maybe that will eliminate the pixels that aren't working. You won't be able to get the highest resolution from the camera, but megapixels are overrated. If you can run it at 3 megapixels or more, you'll be able to do just about anything with it.

Change resolution

Press the menu button and go into the image mode setting. Use the right arrow to go into the table of quality options. Use the up/down on the dial to select the file size (quality) you want. You will then see the quantity of images the card has room for, at the selected resolution.
