Nikon CoolPix S610 not taking proper pictures

I have a Nikon CoolPix S610 and recently it hasn't been taking good pictures. I've reseat the settings back to default and it's still not taking pictures properly. Its blurry, yellow toned, and and somewhat striped (I don't know exactly how to describe). Also, when I tried taking pictures outside it resulted in blank pictures. I brought it back in February and used it sparingly. I don't believe I've ever dropped it.

SOURCE: Nikon D80-picture blurry in auto mode

jbenjack,
The D80 has a lot more settings to deal with and depending on the lens the depth of field may explain the blurry background (that is desired effect on a portrait) The view finder on the D80 is for composing the shot and has read outs for the settings. The LCD on the back is for playback and the menus, it doesn't work like a live view of what's being taken (on some newer and more expensive DSLRs it does preview on the big LCD) on smaller point & Shoot cameras that don't have a viewfinder they use the LCD as the viewfinder, does that make sense? If she has the manual you may want to faniliarize yourself with some of the features, start out on one at a time for the different modes so they make more sense, you can really appriciate the camera after that and respect what pro photographers do. The D80 is not a cheap camera and I personally know a couple of professionals that use it among their cameras. (lots of different lenses that cost many time more than the camera body) Have fun with it, and if you get into it you will find you can take some fantastic photos with it. Can you tell that I like that camera?

SOURCE: how can i fix a lens error on s610?

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

SOURCE: need to open and repair nikon s610

before you would disassmble here are a few things which u need to try if ur lens is stuck....

if ur very sure that the battery is fully charged... first we would advice you to change the batteries and see ...... if that doesnt work... the battery contacts may be corroded or bent and hence not making correct contact with the battery
.... sometimes there cud be dust or sand particles in the lens retraction passage... blow out air in those places..... this cud help a great deal.... I was able to fix a similar problem by wiggling the outermost part of the lens.as its trying to go in....
also try Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots.
if that doest help
Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install the new batteries, when you turn it on it should come back to life. turn it off, slip in the memory card and turn it on one last time.
if that doesnt help

Insert the cameras Audio/Video (AV) cable, and turn the camera on. Inserting this cable ensures that the camera's LCD screen remains off during the start process. Thus extra battery power is available to the camera's lens motor during startup. This extra power can be useful in overcoming grit or sand particals that may be jamming the lens. If the AV cable doesn't fix the lens error by itself, consider keeping this cable installed while trying the above fixes and 7 as a means to provide extra help to these fixes. But note that I DON'T recommend keeping the cable installed during Fix 6 as you may damage the AV port while tapping the camera. Reinsert the cable only AFTER tapping the camera.



Now we're entering into the realm of potentially damaging your camera in conducting the fix. There is definitely some risk here, so take care when conducting the following two fixes.
Fix #6: Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. Other variations include hitting a side of the camera against the palm of your hand. A lot of people have reported success with this method. HOWEVER, there is also some potential for damaging or dislodging internal components with this method, such as unseating ribbon cables, or cracking LCD screens.

Fix #7: Try forcing the lens. More people have reported success with this method than with any of the other methods. HOWEVER, there's obviously some potential for damaging your camera by using this method. Variations include gently pulling, rotating, and/or twisting the lens barrel while hitting the power button. Attempt to gently straighten or align the barrel if it's crooked or twisted. Another variation includes looking for uneven gaps around the lens barrel, and then pushing on the side of the lens barrel that has the largest gap (note pushing the lens barrel all the way in is NOT recommended as it may become stuck there). While doing any of the above, listen for a click that indicates that the lens barrel guide pins may have reseated in their guide slots. If you hear this click, immediately stop and try the camera.

SOURCE: Lack of definition, blurriness.

Experiment with lowering the "exposure compensation" setting until you get the desired results. Also, don't forget to use a tripod.

SOURCE: I have a Nikon Coolpix

Check the manual for instructions on how to set it for the maximum number of megapixels and the best picture quality. If it has shake control, be sure you have it on. Set the camera to "auto" everything until you become more familiar with it.

How do I delete all my pictures on my Nikon Coolpix s6100


There is a menu with allowed you to delete, one, selected or all pictures. Or if you really did backup all pictures, you also could go into the menu for a full format, like you do with a new card. It is a good idea, to sometimes format a memory card, because it will free the card form bad files or clusters.
From the manual, (still online):

Can I charge the Coolpix S610 by plugging it into the computer??


No. If you have an S610, take the battery out of the camera, put the battery into the charger, and plug the charger into a wall outlet. If you have an S610c, plug the AC adapter into the camera.
