Sounds like the iris lens shutter is stuck shut. The lens will need to be replaced. If its over a year or two old, just buy a new camera.

Memory card is write protected as my nikon coolpix screen shows and no any option is getting for picture click


SD 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.

I have a nikon coolpix s60 and when i go to view the pictures, the screen turns black and i cant turn the camera off unless i pull the battery


What name brand memory card do you use? I recently discovered myself that Nikon only supports SanDisk, Toshiba, Panasonic and Lexar. Try taking out the memory card and take pictures without the memory card inside the camera. If you can view the picture saved onto the camera memory then you will know that all you need is a new memory card, with one of the above mentioned name brands. Hope this helps.

My nikon coolpix s51 show message memory card is


Hi,
For the message that show's on your camera here's is what your need to do. 1. Remove the memory card and check for the physical lock toggle.
2. Toggle the lock on and off.
3. Try blowing on the memory card and the memory card port so it will be cleaned somehow. here is the picture of the lock toggle of the SD memory card 919a7e0.png

Screen black in all lighting. Icons and menu show and can view photos already on card, but screen black in all modes. Can take picture, but it is also black. Lens cover is open. Nikon Coolpix 4600. Thanks...


Hello, I went and researched a few points in the manual and hope this helps to some extent. If this doesn't help, try resetting your camera by removing the batteries for 30 seconds, then reinstalling them and turning on the camera again.
Monitor is blank:
• Camera is off.
• Batteries are not correctly inserted or battery-chamber
cover is not properly latched.
• Batteries are exhausted.
• EH-62B AC adapter (available separately) is not properly
connected.
• Camera is in sleep mode. Press shutter-release button
halfway.
• Monitor is off.
• USB cable is connected.
• AV/Video cable is connected


No picture is taken when shutter release button is pressed:


• Camera is in playback mode.
• Batteries are exhausted.
• Red (!) lamp flickers: flash is charging.
• Green (AF) lamp flickers: camera unable to focus.
• Message "CARD IS NOT FORMATTED" appears in
monitor: memory card is not formatted for use in your
camera.
• Message "OUT OF MEMORY" appears in monitor:
insufficient memory to record picture at current Image
mode setting.

Screen is Blank..Nothing shows up


Hey mneeth,
I would first try formatting the memory card, but remember when you do this it will erase all the images on your memory card so upload your images to your computer first. If this doesn't work I would try resetting the camera to its factory settings which can be done from the setup menu. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
