Question about Nikon Coolpix S550 10 Megapixel Digital Camera (Graphite Black) with 5x Optical Zoom + 4GB Memory Ca
I have a coolpix s550 and i would like to know how to make a picture off a video, or can i?
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.

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.
Go Ahead. Use Us.

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.

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
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.
