YES YOU CAN! i have done this myself. it requires software. most video editing programs can do this. photoshop can also be used: it is a little more advanced, but here goes...play the video on your computer at 100%( for best sharpness) pause the video where you want the capture. make sure the "F Lock" is off on your keyboard(to allow print screen to work). while holding down control "Ctrl", press print screen "PrtScn" on your keyboard. watch your curser--it should blink. if it doesnt blink, then the function keys are locked. NEXT open photoshop. I have CS3 so the sequence may vary slightly. Top left menu bar select "File" and scroll down and select "New". a window will open with a "Preset" that should show "Clipboard". Click OK and a blank doc will open. while holding Ctrl, click "V". Control V means paste. this should past the entire view of your monitor with the video paused. you will want to crop it down to your captured image. Hopefully you have a video editing program that will capture a still. I know Pinnacle will do it.

Hey jeanjoy,
I would have it sent out for service. This camera comes with a 1 year parts and labor warranty, and you can bring it to any Best Buy™ store and they can send it out for service. You can also contact the manufacturer and they might be able assist you.

Sincerely,
Allan

Your camera uses a different filing system than the other camera...they are not interchangeable.

You can either connect the camera to the computer using the supplied USB cable, or remove the SD card from the camera and insert it into a card reader attached to the computer. The card reader is the preferred scheme, as it does not drain the camera's battery.

SOURCE: when using my coolpix s550 i cannot select Continuous mode

The same thing happened to me. So frusterating! Make sure it is in shooting mode. Go to the shooting mode menu and go all the way down the page to "Distortion Control". Change it to off. Now you can select continuous mode.

SOURCE: Nikon Coolpix S550 Lens Error

Hello

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.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

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

Regards
Andrea

You can't. The S550 was designed as a camera, storing images and videos to memory. It was not designed to stream videos to an external device.

Cannot download videos from camera to computer


probably cause you use a downloading software that came with the camera ...and its set to locate pictures only ..
just connect the camera ..and ignore the software by cancel it ...after that go to my computer ...and you should find the device ...present as a drive ...
either storage device ..or by the name of teh camera ...there you will find all storage into it ...and it will behave like a removable storage device as in memory flash or ...so ...just locate the videos into the folders...and copy /paste ..
if not ...another way if to run the auto-run ..but not the software ...and choose open containing folder or something alike ...
