Send the camera to the camera doctor. Your focusing drive has been knocked out of alignment. Due to the impact damage, there might be more problems than just the focusing.

He is a friend of mine, he can fix your camera cheaper than sending it to Nikon and probably faster too.

Blurry pictrues in coolpix s51


Good day,

I have heard a lot of complaints about people taking Blurry Photos.

There are a few possibilities for it and a few easy fixes.

The first possibility I would identify is a dirty lens. To fix this simply take a clean microfiber cloth and gently clean the lens until there are no smudges visible.

The other possibility I would identify is that the pictures are out of focus.
This problem can be caused by a dirty lens or because the object or person was not focused on. To ensure focus on your photos, line up your shot and wait for the camera to focus by pressing the shutter button half way down. When focused press the shutter button in all the way and hold the camera still until the photo appears on the screen. By doing this you will eliminate any motion that might mess up your shot.

Please let me know if these tips work for you!

Regards

For some reason when I connect my Nikon Coolpix S51 to my Macbook the device is not recognized. I have connected it, using the same cord, to my hp desktop and it connects and is found immediately. Any...


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Nikon Transfer or iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

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

I have a Nikon Coolpix s51 but my screen is cracked. I am trying to transfer the photos from my memory card and camera to my computer, but i am having trouble figuring out how to do that???


At this point, I would remove the card from the camera. If you don't already have a card reader, invest in one. Connect the card reader to the computer, then plug the card into the reader. You can use Nikon Transfer ( http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61 ) or the operating system's drag&drop to transfer the pictures to your computer.

If you have pictures stored in the camera's internal memory and the screen is at least partially legible, you can try to select "Copy" from the Setup menu to transfer pictures from the internal memory to the memory card before you follow the suggestions in the first paragraph.

Picture Quality


A blue tint would be the color balance in the white balance settings in the menu. Go set the white balance to "Auto" if he pictures are blurry, you could have dirty lens. Take a q tip and wipe it down without and solution to it. Otherwise you could have faced a possible impact damage. Was the camera dropped,bumped, or knocked around. This can be fixed. I recommend sending it to the camera doctor.

He can fix it faster and cheaper than the manufacture. Impact damage is not covered by warrantys.

Pictures are blurred around the edges


Have you tried to change the settings like to scenery or adjusted for lighting that could have an effect. The only time it's blurry for me is when I don't adjust for the picture I am taking. The camera itself focuses so maybe there hasn't been enough time for it to focus. Try those things and if it doesn't work I would take it in to a camera shop maybe it has internal problems.
