Question about Nikon Coolpix S210 Digital Camera
When I try to view pictures I took in the past before this problem, they show up on the screen. But when I change it to camera mode, there is no image on the screen...it is black. When I push the button to take a picture, it clicks, flashes, and there is no picture...just a black screen. I have no idea what is going on and have had it for only 6 months.
It sounds like a stuck shutter. As the camera is less than a year old, Nikon should fix this for you for free under warranty. Contact them.
For others that experience this with cameras that are out of warranty:
A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:
