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!!

Are you saying that on the same card, you are able to view other pictures you took but new pictures appear black? (or is this happening on different cards?)

Black LCD screen. Nothing in LCD screen. No photo on card. When connected to computer, black images appear, no photo. Problem?


I took a hammer to the shutter - now it opens! Actually, I tried the suggestion and it did not correct the problem. I guess I will have to get a new camera. Very disappointed as this camera is only four years old and well cared for.

Canon Powershot SI screen goes black after taking a photo


That sounds like a sticky lens shutter. They usually have to be replaced, as they usually will need parts. When the camera is working look inside the lens and take a picture(with flash turned off). You should see a black shutter door clicking shut in the lens. When the camera acts up, look inside the lens again. If the door is staying shut full time, that is your problem.

I talked to sony assistance and they said nothing really helpful. They told me to try:

- Putting everything default again
- Taking out battery and holding down the power button for 30sec and putting back the battery,

None of these worked.

I had the same problem - not entirely sure about the causality but it seemed to work again after I took the memory card out and put it back in. Worth a try I guess.
