Question about Nikon Coolpix S4000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Screen has a giant blue line through the center and can only barely see about 1/6 out of the screen

Still opens and works and takes pictures. Cannot see through the screen. There is almost no visibility. Is it internal? Something with the lens?

When you can make pictures, and view them on a computer and not on the camera screen, nothing is wrong with the lens or the photo sensor. But I think something is wrong with the LCD screen. Cold be the screen itself, but also the connection to the screen or deeper in the camera. If you can't solve a camera problem, after removing the battery, and reinserting it after a few seconds, the mostly you should contact the service centre. Be aware that some repairs can cost more than a new camera of the same quality. So ask what it will cost first.

SOURCE: problem with lens

It is possible you have the display turned off... Some cameras allow you to do this to save battery.

SOURCE: my coolpics s6 has a black screen when in picture

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

You have a completely different problem. The screen voltage for the blue picture tube is slightly too high on your set. This will put fine lines in the background of the picture, called retrace lines. This is very common and easy to correct. Remove the front speaker cover and the access panel behind it. Look inside and you will see a black box with six controls, each control having a little white glue on it. This is the Focus/Screen block. Three controls are labeled Focus and three are labeled Screen. The screen control in the center is for green but I am not sure if the screen control on the left or right is for blue for your model. With the TV on, set it to VIDEO 1 but do not connect anything to the VIDEO 1 jacks. This will produce a pure dark picture, showing any faint lines in the background. Choose one of the screen controls and increase (turn clockwise) it slightly. If the blue lines do not get brighter it means you are turning the red screen control, so put it back where it was and choose the other screen control. When you find the blue screen control, decrease (turn counter-clockwise) it until just when the blue lines are gone. If you want you can check that the red and green screen controls are set to just below the point where their faint lines are visible. When done, replace the panels and your picture will be back to perfect.

MikeNJ1964 was exactly right! I have a Sony KP-65WV600 that had horizontal green lines that showed when the picture was darker. I had to remove 3 screws on the right and left side of the tv holding in the speakers...carefully pop out the middle panel from the clips holding it in....remove 4 screws from the cardboard in the middle and remove the cardboard. I then saw the six screws. The adjustment screws were the three below. I turned the middle screw until the lines dissapeared. I tried the left screw and blue lines appeared which I then adjusted away.
THANKS a bunch. SAVED me money!!!

did you check the six 3.5 pico fuses that are next to the ICs? They will often be open ( blown) when the ICs fail. Also check the two 5 amp IC protectors on the G board as those protect the two ICs so its possible they have blown also a 5 amp pico can be substituted for the two IC protectors.

Giant blue spot on 50" Hitachi LCD HDTV


The problem is an expensive one. The blue display has become distorted due to excessive heat overtime. The blue display is closest to the lamp and gets most of the heat. The Light Engine must be replaced by a repair shop to correct the problem.

Did you remove 1 leg of each resistor out of circuit when you checked the resistors? sounds like thier is still one resistor open or maybe one of the new IC pins need abit more solder.

You will need to replace your two convergence I.C.s.They are two large IC mounted on a large aluminum heat sink.Replace both,look for any burned resistors near them,replace those if needed,and readjust your convergence. Good Luck

Let me know if you need any further help
