Question about Nikon Coolpix S51c Digital Camera

Dust inside screen of Nikon Coolpix S51c

Inside the screen of my Nikon Coolpix S51c camera (the large screen, which serves as a viewfinder), a fair amount of dust has somehow accumulated. This is normally fine, just unattractive, but in the sun, the dust reflects the light and it's hard to see the screen.

I've tried blowing it out with "canned air," but that doesn't help.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

You won't be able to get it cleaned with canned air. The dust that developed is underneath the screen. I recommend sending it to Nikon or the camera doctor.

He can clean it for you cheaper and faster than Nikon could do it.

My nikon coolpix digital camera s51c say memory card is write protected... and will not let me go to format card... what do i do... pls help


SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

My cameras the screen is gone i needed to change the screen


Hi,

This problem can be due defective (broken /twisted) RIBBON CABLE inside connecting LCD to its main body or probably due to bad CCD chip. Both Ribbon cable & CCD unit cannot be repaired, it can be replaced by an expert technician. Its better to contact Sony Service Center.


Thanks....!!

Viewfinder Obstruction


If the dust/dirt is visible in the finder, it is in one of three locations: - if very sharp, it is on the "grind" side of the viewing screen, which, unfortunately for cleaning ease [unless the screen is user-removeable], is often the upper side of the screen in newer cameras. - if fairly sharp, it is on the non-"grind" side of the screen, and it may be possible to remove it with a VERY soft (very clean!) small brush or a VERY gentle blowing with a hand syringe-type blower (blowing hard into a VF area just about guarantees that dust will be blown in). - if very soft-looking, it is on the underside surface of the pentaprism (being able to clean the VF area without a repair is an excellent arguement for having the interchangeable-screen feature...). Prevention is the best way - never leave the body cavity uncovered (except briefly, when changing lenses); never change lenses in a windy area; keep the rear area of the lens clean; get in the habit of facing the open camera downward while changing lenses; NEVER blow into the body cavity (unless you know what you are doing, the mirror is up, or the screen is removeable). Hope This Helps
