Question about Nikon Coolpix S550 10 Megapixel Digital Camera (Graphite Black) with 5x Optical Zoom + 4GB Memory Ca
I just got the Nikon Cool Pix S550 camera. It is charged and when I turn it on the screen remains black so I can't see any images to take a picture. I can push the menu button and the menu will appear, so that works. Any suggestions
you can purchase on ebay for $24.95http://photography.shop.ebay.com/Cameras-Photo-/625/i.html?LH_BIN=1&LH_IncludeSIF=1&_nkw=nikon+s550+door&_dmpt=Digital_Camera_Accessories&_npmv=3&_trksid=p3286.c0.m301

When there is nothing happening, it is hard to understand what is wrong.
Do the menus cone on or anything turn on?
If the camera comes on at all, then try setting all the menus to default.
If nothing comes on, no lights, nothing, then you are stuck.
If it will not turn on at all, I would recommend selling it at a site such as Ebay for repair parts, as is. At least you can get some money back, and buy another camera.
Also you may want to consider to call Nikon and trade-in or trade-up your camera for a re-furbished unit (a re-furbished unit will have everything just as it came from the factory. The support-repair department would be the place to get the number and information.

Hello there, for transferring media from the memory card to your computer it is much better to remove the memory card from the camera slot and use a card reader as the operating system of your computer will detect it as new media found and you can easily drag and drop the files you want to utilize and will save battery on your camera as well.

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.
Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.
Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.
Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).
Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.
Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.
Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.
Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.
If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.
