Question about Nikon COOLPIX S5 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera Screen black

Dear, My Nikon coolpix s5 camera was working just fine, and now the screen is black. It powers up ok, and I can see saved pictures, but the screen remains black. Flash is okey at time of new photo shoot. But connecting computer is finding the photo was not captured. that means screen indicate black. I've tried to push buttons in the menu, but the black screen remains. Any suggestions please? Thanks Abrour.

Time for a new camera, the cost to have it exchanged by Nikon is near the cost to replace.

SOURCE: nikon coolpix S3- most of the screen is black on shooting mode

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

SOURCE: Nikon CoolPix S5 - Same trouble

I went through the process of sending my camera in to the nikon repair center. it was used very little, in fact it appears brand new. it had never been mistreated, wich is what nikon tried to convince me must have happened because they refuse to believe that they have sold an inferior product. they never told me what is wrong with the camera but wanted $146 to fix it and send it back. the only solution is that everyone send their s5 back to the service ctr and refuse to pay to have them repaired. they e-mail a survey and if we all give them low marks maybe they will decide that they should take care of their customers a little better, especially with todays economy. the survey asks if you would purchase or recommend NIKON again. I told them that I WOULD AVOID NIKON LIKE A SICK CHINESE CHICKEN.

My coolpics s6 has a black screen when in picture taking mode - as if the lens is not open. icons display, and show pictures mode works ok.


Switch on the screen in setup. The screen is now in 'power saving' mode and does not lit up while taking pictures.

Black Screen


We often see the CCD and the lens iris being the source of this problem. Look in the lens while the camera is powering up, you should see the iris opening, if not, you have a defective CCD, Hope this helps you! Joe Weibel Custom Electronics Customelectronics.org
