Hi dear!
1. If you see like window blind on LCD when you camera switch on at camera mode. Check one more thing, press menu botton. You still see like window blind on LCD. and then you have defective LCD unit. Otherwise, you have shutter blades (not dust cover blades in front of lens) defect inside of lens unit assembly.
If LCD defect will be very inexpensive service and easy, otherwise, you bring to local repair shop. (very easy problem)

If Actual picture come out like window blind image,
then I want you load to computer and open the file.
You still see like window blind image. then 200% is the shutter blades not working properly inside of lens unit. Bring to local repair shop unless you are not able. Then I can give a little monkey job! using a tooth brush!

Hope You Luck! A Professional Camera Clinic Guy!

What's your problem? Nikon Coolpix S220 - My screen is black and takes black pictures. I can still look at old pictures that are saved to the device and see how much battery power etc, but it will


i can recommend read very well you owner manual specially the troubleshooting section. The images in the LCD monitor will darken in strong sunlight or bright light. This is a normall occurrence the devices containing CCDS, and doesnot contitute a malfunctions.
If you are using too much the flash+zoom, the batteries quicly will drain. maintian another set of batteries for replace, or better buy recharges batteries.
God bless you

The screen unexpectedly went blank and black....apart from camera info symbols..all pictures taken now are black..... pictures taken before can be seen on screen,....lens moves in and out ok


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, sometimes with lines, 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 this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Is there a design flaw with the LCD for the s220


I'm not convinced that the LCD itself is bad, from what is reported. The LCD display has a ribbon connector that connects to the main circuit board, and can come slightly loose. When it does, the camera has to be disassembled to disconnect and reconnect the connector. There is no design flaw that I know or have heard of concerning this camera. This happens with all brands of digital cameras at times, not just the Coolpix. It doesn't cost anything to disconnect and reconnect the ribbon connector, so I would try that first, then replace it if does turn out to be bad. There are videos on YouTube that show how to reseat the connector. Good luck, and hope this helps.

Your camera is faulty. It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

How to upload pictures from a Nikon coolpix to a dell computer


download your s220 nikon driver here...

http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61

IMPORTANT to install the software before pluging in the camera!!!

But my ideal solution to downloading pictures is to remove you storage media from the carmera and use a card reader...

doesn't waste batteries, much quicker, needs no software to work...

please leave feedback if helpful
