Question about Nikon Coolpix S1 Digital Camera
When I turn on the camera the shutter ,len cover,is open but lcd screen is black , but all the camera info still appears on the screen. I tried shooting a few photos and those turn out black as well. Please help!
With the power off, hold the camera in your palm and smack the front of the camera on your leg or arm. You might have to smack it a few time to get it to work. It has to do with the camera CDD lense (shuttle) being stuck. By smacking it around, it will free up the lense. Being extra gentle with it though. It worked for me. Hope this help.
