Question about Nikon Coolpix S1 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Black Lcd and pictures.

So I'm in Spain which makes it a little difficult to get things fixed at the moment, so I figured I'd try and troubleshoot the problem myself. When I turn on the camera the lcd screen is black but all the camera info still appears on the screen. I tried shooting a few photos and those turn out black as well. The lens cover opens and I've went through all the camera setting but it's not recognizing anything seen through the lens. Please help!

    I have the identical problem with my Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ5.

    The solution sounds spot on, but I'm not sure I'll like the repair cost!

The problem you are experiencing is due to the shutter being stuck closed. Normally the shutter is kept open while you compose the image, and then when you push the button it closes and the CCD records what it was seeing at that moment. When the shutter is stuck the image is blocked from reaching the CCD at all times so you can see nothing. Unfortunately the shutter is a tiny delicate component buried deep within the lens assembly and is not accessible without complete disassembly. I would suggest finding a repair center to ship the camera to, or replacing the camera. I would definitely not _gently_ tap the camera on a hard surface to possibly dislodge a slightly stuck shutter blade. This could easily cause further damage to the camera. However, you are not me. ;) David Millier Advance Camera Repair

Never heard of an appliance company named 1J41001. Either way if it won't drain in Spain try doing it in another country. Maybe your not allowed to drain a washer in Spain. Chances are if you take it to a country where you can drain it, you might find that there is a tuner issue or a belt or the rag joint is off. Find the Spain pump and see if it is turning or if something is disconnected. Spaelling lessons will make things easier on us too

How to put the pressure switch back together?

Without having a look myself its a little difficult to know where the black plastic plate comes from. There are so many tiny parts in those things.

But normally when you have air coming from the pressure switch, it usually comes from the check valve, that is located at the other end of the pipe which attaches from the pressure switch to the tank, where it fixes to the tank, is where the check valve is. When there is no pressure in the tank, unscrew it, clean it up or replace it, then that should solve your air leak.

As for the pressure switch, either you need an exploded view of it so you can see where the plate goes, or you may have to replace it altogether

1 Answer problem is this...... everytime me or my employees run a report....x, or z....we are all always given a report that states we have made a considerable amount of money, more than what we actually...


Don't panic! Hair is irreplaceable, I know!

Fact: Cash registers only register what is being entered, and run a subtotal. At the end of the day, when you get the daily report, all transactions and the final amount are printed out for you.

I suspect several mistakes are/were made, and not corrected properly, or sales not voided when they should have been.
Punching an extra digit in a moment of rush is not as difficult as it seems. You'd be amazed!

One way to unravel the mystery would be to check all the day's transactions.

It is a cash register with 2 paper rolls, right? One for receipts, and one for the journal.

So, all you have to do is sit down at the end of the day and figure how many overpriced item were sold, or how many sales are duplicate, or how many sales were not voided.
And one more thing ... as Colombo would say, how many of your employees have free access to the cash register?

Do charge recipts match the register entries?
Does the cook and the bottlewasher have access to the register as well?
Do many customer come to get change?
Does the same thing happen when you are there?
And most importantly, how does your inventory compare to the sales?

Sounds like this has been going on for sometime, so take some time to try to figure out how these mistakes are made.

HOw do I repair the Scattergories timer?

Hi. I hope you've found an alternate timer to use, if you haven't figured it out elsewise, in the meantime. I came across this link: while looking for the answer myself. It appears there may be different models, as the one featured in this link shows hooks at ends of spring whereas mine does not have these. Thus, I've had a little more difficulty getting things all aligned and working properly, but that is no fault of these instructions, which include the steps and real pictures. Good luck! and good gaming.

Flasher cliker always making noise even if flasher

My '02 Alero did the same thing every since I got the car 5 years ago. After 6 visits to the dealership and them telling me it was the hazard light switch which had gotten recalled, I just gave up. 2 years ago, I started dating a mechanic and he figured out what the problem was. The contact in the steering panel that controls the blinker was dirty. He took my car to work and fixed it. It's definitely something you could do at home if you have a little know how, me being a woman, cars aren't my thing so he did it. He used this link below as a step by step on how to do it. Although its for a Grand Am, its essentially the same car. Hope it helps!
