Question about Nikon Coolpix S3000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My Nikkon Coolpix s3300 displays everything in unfocused shades of purple and anything that is emitting or reflecting light glares like it is being viewed through night vision goggles. Is there a fix

The camera is not very old and hasn't been used that much. It worked fine in the morning but when I took it out later that day it was having these issues.

If it works in the morning (when it is presumably cold) and not in the afternoon when it is hot, it is possibly a temperature sensitivity issue in the electronics. I would contact Nikon Support ASAP because your warranty is about to expire. There number is 1-800-645-6687 and the are open 9AM to 8PM EST, Monday to Friday.

Get on to Nikon and let them know about it, it is a common problem with the S4. They are fixing the 3500 and others for free.

September 9, 2007 3:56 PM 39 thumbs-up.png 1 thumbs-down.png Hi, Please forget the above findings of mine. I just realized that it is a feature of the camera when it fails to focus on an subject for consecutive 5 times, the lens will intialize itself and out put on screen a message: INITIALIZING LENS CANNOT FOCUS.

I just got the camera defective like conditions of yours. Tried to find help on the web and came across this site while testing on the black screen camera for not more than 45 minutes.

I have the instruction manual, but never flipped a page on it yet. So how the heck do I know about that 5 times things on focus as mentioned above. BECAUSE I got the stupid camera working right now with the real time image on the screen.

If you want to follow my way to try fixing it yourself, keep reading and do it at your own risk. You paid several hundread dollars for the camera and I just paid $20 for it. Therefore, I tried everything I can to make it work, even if I had to open the camera body to play with the inside. Fortunately, it was not neccessary to take it apart.

Once again, AT YOUR OWN RISK to follow my way to get back your real time image screen.
Read the following steps once and make sure you understand before action.

(1) Load your camera with a freashly recharged battery.
(2) Switch on to see if it's working and still without the real time screen.
(3) Switch it off, and hold it tight in you palm with the LCD facing inward.
(4) Now, with you palm up, you should be able to see the model name 'CoolPix S6' under the lens and the flash.
(5) While holding the camera and aiming at the 'CoolPix S6', raise your other hand with the fist next to your ear.
(6) Match the aim as describe in(4) to the aim of your elbow 's protruded part and make pratice moves. Yes, you'are going to smack it
to your elbow.
(7) When you are ready, try first not to hit your elbow too hard once.
(8) Switch the camera on to check. If you have the 'Screen' now, congratulation! If not, repeat (4) to (8) but with a stronger impact
Force. You might have to try more times until your elbow could not take the sore.

I got mine fixed by performing the above steps just once, but I started at a medium impact force. Before this fix, I tried to whack it on both sides, the top and the bottom to my knee cap.

Why I chose knee cap and elbow? They hurt if you strike too hard. The target is to apply enough impact force to shake but not break the parts inside the camera.

Good Luck!!

Reflection off of screen


Plasma TV's are known for their glare and reflection issues, you can still fix it by buying a third party anti-glare filter and applying it on your television. For example, "ViewGuard" makes filters that goes up to 65" in size. It is not cheap though, depending on the size of your television.
Of course, the best solution is to adapt your room accordingly. If the glare is caused by the sun light coming from the windows, installing curtains on your windows or moving your television to a better spot is a very effective way to reduce the glare and the reflections on your television.
If the glare is caused by the room's lights, the best solution is to install ceiling spot lights with a dimmer.

Hope that helps!

Magellan Maestro 4250 GPS, the display seems to wash out on sunny days so that it is unreadable. That's without direct sunlight on the unit. Can anything be done or adjusted?


The Magellan 4250 LCD display brightness settings does not do much. I can understand how annoying it is to have the sun's glare on the display making it unreadable. You can improvise a simple sun shade like i did, cut and fit a card board strip on top of your GPS unit to block out the sun glare. It's just simple and cheap solution.

When I am taking pictures outdoors there is so much glare that I can not see the picture I am taking.


Have you tried a glare shield, or LCD hood?

A glare shield reduced reflections, whilst an LCD hood folds out and provides "miniature shade" to assist in viewing.

Here's a 2.5" example (for pentax). Generic ones (such as Delkin) are cheaper.

For more types, search for "LCD Hood" on eBay, Cameras

The focus on the NIKON COOLPIX P80


some cameras have a choice in menu as to monitor or continous autofocus-monitor or continous means camera always seeks a focus which hurts bat life but makes focus quicker-single means camera won't focus untill button pressed halfway-make sure you are not in macro mode-flower icon on screen-this will screw up focus except for close up work-good luck-check menu settings for your type of focus
