Question about Nikon COOLPIX Cameras
There are 3 options, which come up to my mind :
The camera is containing a controller, able to communicate with a inserted memory-card. In some cases the size of the memory-card is not supported by this controller.
2) Protective mode
There's a small slide at the edge of this card. Maybe the slide is set to protect the contents of the memory card.
Sometimes, you don't take care enough about the way you insert a memory card into the camera. Everything goes quick... If you inserted the card wrong, the pins at the menory card wont touch the internal pins in the socket of the camera.
4) Fake memory
There are some fake memory cards sold. This means, inside the card is a FLASH-memory chip and a tiny controller-chip. Some Chinese see it as a sport, to use for i.e. a 4 GB memory-card, replacing the outside cover with a text that states 32 GB. And likewise, they have to re-program the controller-chip, to think it has 32 GB FLASH-memory onboard. So, if you insert this card into a PC with Windows, Windows will show this card is 32 GB, while it is actually 4 GB. There are programs to test memory-cards for this type of fraud. However, most of the time, you can figure it out yourself, by checking the price you paid for this memory-card. If the price for this new card was extremely interesting (read : low priced), you probably burned your fingers.
5) Defective memory
The manufacturing process of memory-chips has it flaws. Luckily they use tests to check batches. If there's some malfunctioned detected, they throw it away. Unluckily, there are workers at those factories, who take these (partly) malfunctioning memory-cards back home and sell them at internet. Dealers just think about earning a quick buck and buyers face the results.

At 4GB size, your memory card is likely a SDHC card, and not a standard SD card. Although they look the same, there is a difference in formatting. Unfortunately your model camera was designed before the SDHC format came out, and it will not work with your camera. But fortunately standard SD cards are very inexpensive these days, and you should be able to purchase a good 2GB standard card for around $6 with shipping:

This problem is dealing with the censor of the camera. There is a limited life for censor. It gets worse as the time passing and the number of shuts increasing. This is normal. This happens generally under strong light levels. Also it happens under high degree light level of Kelvin. There is nothing to do about this problem. The best way is to change the censor of the camera. But unfortunately it needs much money. This is not economic. So I do not offer this way. The other way is to use the camera with this fault or buy a new one. I have faced with this problem and gave the camera to child for him to touch it freely. And I bought a new one. So I offer the same to you. I know that this information does not make your face smiled. But the situation is this. My aim is to give you the correct information and let you know the reality.
