Question about Nikon Coolpix S4 Digital Camera
Hi, My coolpix S4 camera doesn show any image on the display. all the menus and the previous pictures taken are working fine and displays perfectly. I got the Nikon ppl to get it serviced, and it cost me a lot of money and it has gone bad again. i dont want to get it repaired again because i have no guarantee that it wont go bad again. I've tried opening the camera by myself. But even after removing all the screws, i cant open it.Is ther some way i can open it. some lock somewhere where i have to check. I have no more hopes for this camera. So i just want to go ahead and see wats in ther anyways..
this model is really bad and i dont recoomment to anyone.
Can someone help me out here.
Mine is doing the same thing. If you were to look in to the lens when it does not work, you will notice the shutter is shut. If you gently tap it on the side near the lens, you will see the shutter begin to open back up and you will see images once again on the LCD. You will be able to take a picture, but closing the shutter due to taking the picture, you will have to tap on it once again to get it open.
My theory is that there is a small spring that has come off of the shutter. But since I don't want to attempt to take mine apart, I am going to send it in for repair.
I hope this helps!

Black screen and pic's, same problem, the lens is not operating like it was (when turned on the lens used to move inside). I see 6 small screws on the lens housing, has anyone taken these out and got the lens to operate? if not i am going to. lets figure this thing out. it may just need a little lubricant on the track or if there is a spring.

(^same writer again..)
oh no, a camera works again when i knock it gently to a table surface (object side)
I think that problem is in the jammed shutter because it will not work when tried to take pictures with blank screen. Now the camera works good..
