Re: Card Setup..

Hi, Chances are your memory card has been corrupted and is no longer readable by your camera hence the camera asking you to "reformat". You have to perform the reformat to hopefully make the memory card usable again. To try and recover the pictures inside the memory card, you have to remove it, insert into a suitable memory card reader attached to a PC and make use of a recovery software. The software maybe available from the memory card manufacturer or a third party such as Smart Recovery (, Flash Memory card recovery utility ( Hope this be of help to you. Post back how things are or should you need additional info. Good luck and Kind regards.

How do I delete pictures from a coolpix S4000

To delete individual pictures: while viewing the picture, tap the trash can icon on the screen, then tap yes when it asks for confirmation.

To delete all pictures on a memory card: format the card. TAP MENU, tap the wrench icon, select "Format card."

To delete all pictures in internal memory: format internal memory. Tap MENU, tap the wrench icon, select "Format memory."

The delete instructions are in the "Deleting Pictures" section of the manual (page 33 in my copy). The format instructions are in the "Format Memory/Format Card" section of the manual (page 150). If you need a manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at

After I take picture, the picture is captured & shown but when I try to view,(by pressing playback) it displays 'Cannot playback Image' with a big question mark. When I downloaded & tried to view...

Check to make sure that you did not accidentally change image format from jpg to crw(camera raw). Your camera lcd will only display jpg files and you need special software to view raw files on the pc.

My viewing screen is black when trying to take a picture but when viewing pics I have already taken the screen is fine and show the pics..any idea what is wrong?

You need to go into the setup menu and turn on the display. This is sometimes turned off when you use the optical viewer or in low power modes. Your user manual will show you how to do this step by step.
