This is not a do-it yourself job. I would get an estimate from either the nearest Nikon USA repair depot or a camera repair man. My guess is that the cost of repair will be more then the cost of a new camera. Sorry!

It started to show preview (before you take a photo) with yellowish colors. the photo itself is goood, but when you are trying to take it all you see on the preview screen is unnatually yellow.. pelase...


I hope you did not drop the camera. The display can be damaged and it will hinder you. But it looks you still can make good pictures, so the camera part works.
If you want to screen to be normal again, I think you should visit a repairstore or your dealer.

How do i load the film


There's a sliding catch on the left side of the camera (as viewed from the front) at the forward edge. Slide it and the lower front panel drops down to reveal the loading slot. Insert the photo pack (you may need to remove an old empty photo pack first).

If the new photo pack is an original Polaroid one, then because they are all so old and far out of date then you may find that the battery is totally dead or has just enough power to eject the cover slide and perhaps one photo. If that is the case either convert your camera to accept an external 6v dc power supply before using the expensive photo pack or buy a freshly manufactured compatible pack from The Impossible Project.

Preview screen half white, with black blob!


I think ribbon connector of LCD is misaligned in your camera.
If you are comfortable with it, please apart camera and readjust ribbon connector at main board.

Lens error


This can work with CoolPix S10
1) Remove battery.
2) Replace Battery (Insure it is fully charged)
3) Press the Shooting/Preview button and keep pressing it while you press the power on button. This tells the camera to go into PREVIEW MODE without checking the lens. See if you can preview a few photos and that it works in preview - If it does NOT I cannot help you here.
4) If the Camera Works in Preview mode then press the Shooting/Preview button to put it back into "Take Photo Mode".
5) There can be a delay but it starts up without the lens error.
6) Make sure the ZOOM IN and OUT works and in most cases if the lens operates then you can take a photo. If the Zoom in and Out does not work you have a jammed lens.
7) If the LENS is Jammed AND it is OUT of warranty you 'might' want to tap the lens barrel against your palm. I have found when you remove the battery you can gently tap the lens into telephoto mode by tapping the back of lens assembly into your palm.

LCD screen


Unfortunately it is not possible to preview the picture on the camera's LCD screen before you take it.

The 300D is an SLR camera. What this means is that as light comes in through the lens it is deflected by a mirror (which sits in front of the sensor) up to the viewfinder. When you take a picture, the mirror flips up out of the way and a mechanical shutter opens, exposing the sensor to the incoming light. Because the mirror and shutter are in the way of the sensor, it is not possible to have a 'live preview'.

Compact cameras (which do allow you to preview the image on the LCD screen) work in a different way. They have a completely separate viewfinder, and they do not have a mechanical shutter - The signal from the sensor is simply switched electronically between the LCD screen and the memory.

On the plus side, although you might not be used to using a viewfinder, you will find the image you see is a lot bigger and a lot brighter that those you get on a compact camera.

Hope this helps,

Matt

Camera shuts down when the flash is opened


the flash circuit of the camera is short. the moment you switch on the flash it drops the supply voltages of the battery. you have to show it to a repairer.

My screen is white


I would suggest trying a new set of batteries. Probably won't make a difference but its worth a try. Screen will not come on after taking a picture to preview it if the battery is getting low but will work looking through the pictures. try, also, different memory card
