Question about Nikon Coolpix S4 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Screen Hi, My Nikon Coolpix s4 camera does not generate any image on the screen. I last used it 2 months ago. Then i kept it a a safe place and took it out again to find that the screen went completely blank when i start it. Although it displays the previously taken images stored on memory card, displays all menus, zoom works perfectly fine and the flash also works fine.

Re: Screen

Get on to Nikon and let them know about it, it is a common problem with the S4. They are fixing the 3500 and others for free.

Re: Screen

If the screen displays all the normal stuff but not new images- have you tried taking new pix then trying them in the computer to see if images actually recorded? This does seem like a processing failure. Check out Nikon for a repair cost. May not be something you like to read though.

Please charge the battery and have the camera switched on overnight. Also keep the camera in a warm condition, if possible use a hair dryer at a distance to warm up with the battery removed and the compartment blown into with hot air.-- please take care not to overheat.
The possibility that a set might have developed some connection error or electrolytic leak within the electronics section.

OK, this might sound stupid, but I had the same problem with a similar camera and I had accidentally pushed the Display button. I was about to give my camera up for dead. Try pushing it (the little button on the bottom back that says Disp on it). Does that bring your image back? If not let me know and I'll research further.
