The picture has a delayed action

It's not possible to take a photo in a second, because the camera needs to get in focus the object you're taking picture of.

You have a square on your display that indicates where the focus will be.
With whatever function you use, you need to press the shutter button halfway and wait for the camera to focus on the object. When it's focused you will hear the click and the square will turn green.
Now your pictures shouldn't be blurry.

Have a Nikon coolpix 4100 and cannot figure out from the manual how to use the self-timer feature.????

On the selector dial press the left arrow next to the clock icon. This brings up the timer selector. Press the down arrow to select on and then select. This sets the timer. Now position your camera and press the shutter button. There is a 10 second delay between pressing the shutter button and the picture being taken. If you want to take another picture with the timer, you have to reset it.

Trying to figure out how to use the timer on my Nikon Coolpix S570

Press the self-timer button (left of OK).

Press up or down to choose either two second or ten second delay.

Frame the picture and press the shutter release halfway to set focus and exposure.

Press the shutter button the rest of the way. The self-timer starts, the remaining number of seconds shows on the display, and the self-timer lamp blinks.

After the picture is taken, the self-timer reverts to OFF.

To cancel the self-timer, press the shutter release button again.

Fuller details can be found in the manual under "Taking Pictures with the Self-timer."

My coolpics s6 has a black screen when in picture taking mode - as if the lens is not open. icons display, and show pictures mode works ok.

Switch on the screen in setup. The screen is now in 'power saving' mode and does not lit up while taking pictures.

Picture display is slow

Some thoughts...make sure the battery is fully charged...set the quality of the pictures to a lower level...make sure the card is not overly full of previous pictures...use a faster card.

You should be able to turn the screen on while taking pictures so that you can see what is going on a little easier. Here is a link to the manual where you can find where in the menu to turn the LCD on. I tried to get the manual for myself so that I could give you page numbers and such, but it requires that i give a serial number number off the camera, so be sure to have your camera handy when you do this.

Camera LCD is black

If you want to follow my way to try fixing it yourself, keep reading and do it at your own risk. You paid several hundread dollars for the camera and I just paid $20 for it. Therefore, I tried everything I can to make it work, even if I had to open the camera body to play with the inside. Fortunately, it was not neccessary to take it apart.

Once again, AT YOUR OWN RISK to follow my way to get back your real time image screen.
Read the following steps once and make sure you understand before action.

(1) Load your camera with a freashly recharged battery.
(2) Switch on to see if it's working and still without the real time screen.
(3) Switch it off, and hold it tight in you palm with the LCD facing inward.
(4) Now, with you palm up, you should be able to see the model name 'CoolPix S6' under the lens and the flash.
(5) While holding the camera and aiming at the 'CoolPix S6', raise your other hand with the fist next to your ear.
(6) Match the aim as describe in(4) to the aim of your elbow 's protruded part and make pratice moves. Yes, you'are going to smack it
to your elbow.
(7) When you are ready, try first not to hit your elbow too hard once.
(8) Switch the camera on to check. If you have the 'Screen' now, congratulation! If not, repeat (4) to (8) but with a stronger impact
Force. You might have to try more times until your elbow could not take the sore.

I got mine fixed by performing the above steps just once, but I started at a medium impact force. Before this fix, I tried to whack it on both sides, the top and the bottom to my knee cap.

Why I chose knee cap and elbow? They hurt if you strike too hard. The target is to apply enough impact force to shake but not break the parts inside the camera.

Good Luck!!
