Re: nikon coolpix S3- most of the screen is black on...

I had the same problem with mine. I searched the web and came across this one. My camera had a black screen but everything else worked. I read some of the comments and a few people said to hit it. I hit the camera in the side of my hand a few times and it started to work. Thanks for the info. It sound carzy but it works.

Now working Nikon coolpix

My Nikon coolpix will not take a picture. I take a picture, but all I get is a white screen. What is the problem?

probably gross overexposure. What shooting mode are you in? Try it on automatic. Make sure you are not in a manual mode.

How do i take black and white photos with my nikon coolpix 100

This can only be done in one of the PSAM modes. Press the MENU button and switch to one of the PSAM modes to display the shooting menu. Select "Optimize Image" and then select "Black-and-white."

Full details are in the "Shooting in Black-and-White" section of the manual (page 81 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at

Nikon coolpix s3 black screen

I agree with you, although I would not rely on Kodak. I find their digital products don't stand up to much. Based on what I see come through my digital lab, I recommend Canon, Casio and Sony
