Question about Nikon Coolpix 4600 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Picture screen distorted.

One day, I set the camera down on the table and then I had to leave. Later, my parents wanted to take pictures, so they took the camera, but when they turned it on, the screen to take the pictures is completely distorted. Most of the screen is white with some vertical colored lines. It also has some horizontal yet sorta curvy black lines. Also, even when I turn off the camera, I can see the lines faintly. In addition, I already have pictures on it from before, and I tried to transfer them to my computer, but the computer wont recongize my camera. I tried to go to the menu, but the screen is still the same. I tried the set up too, that didnt work. I took out the memory card, put new batteries, nothing. Nothing has worked. Please help me, it would be much appreciated. :)

Your LCD screen has been cracked, it will have to be replaced. The screen is actually made of thin glass, so what you are seeing is actually just like a cracked or broken mirror or window. This kind of damage is not covered by manufacturers warranty so I would suggest finding a repair facility online to service your camera if you wish to get it replaced. The replacement LCD should be somewhere from $60 to $80 and somewhere around $50 in labor. The problem with communicating with your computer is unrelated to the screen issue. Try again, and make sure everything is set up right. It is likely that function still works fine. :) David Millier Advance Camera Repair

Is it possible to recover missing pictures?

I don't think those picture can be recovered as those might have stored in the temporary memory for a while and every time he took another pic it might have over-written in the previous one..

Better remove the Micro SD card and try to connect to PC and check if its available in the card

All of a sudden everything is out of focus and very blurry, pictures and even through the view finder. we took a few pics tht turned out normal, set the camera down picked it up about 5-10 minutes later...

If the viewfinder is also blurry, it might be as simple as a smudge on the lens. Is the blur uniform and consistent on the pictures and in the viewfinder? Was there a curious dog nearby when you set the camera down?:)

Internal memory is full


Your camera's internal memory can only hold up to 10 pictures ( if it's set to capture at full megapixels). If you want to take more pictures or videos, you will need to add a memory card (SD or MMC card).

Here is a breakdown of the number of pictures you can take with the internal and external memory:

The 8.0MP to 1.2MP in the table is the resolution/quality setting of the camera. You can adjust it if you want for your camera to hold more pictures. However, lower setting (megapixel) lowers the quality of the pictures.

I hope that helps...

Good luck and have a nice day!

My 1200 is making a loud buzzing noise!

Yes, that large metal box is the housing for the transformer. Not too hard to replace, but if not done properly can cause serious damage to your turntable.

I've never heard of a transformer on these units causing a buzzing noise. Did you buy this used or new? If it's new, it's highly unlikely that the issue is with the transformer. However, we have been seeing some 'unusual' issues with Technics 1200s lately, which we attribute to a decline in quality standards @ Matsushita (Technics parent company).

The transformer can be purchased HERE. There really isn't much to replacing this part, just put it back exactly as you took it apart. Take pictures along the way, to help you if you get stuck. Also take some notes on where each part goes.

If you get stuck along the way, feel free to give us a call. Our service techs are masters with the 1200s, and we can walk you through it: 1.866.668.1596 ext 1
