Question about Nikon Coolpix S1 Digital Camera
I'm smiling. It only took one thigh slap and now the camera works again. For how long is the question. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Had to slap it on the table, didn't work on my thigh. Something must seriously be wrong with mine (sarcasm). Nevertheless, the "slapping" technique seems to work.

What a riot. I did what one of the recommendations said to do--hit the darn thing-it worked after the 4th slap! Im still buying a new camera--don't trust this Nikon. Last thing I need is to have it not work when I really need it and beating up the thing doesnt work!

Same. I held my camera in my palm and slapped it on my thigh..the fourth time, i was able to see a picture again.

Amazing. I got this camera with a bunch of other stuff at an auction. Ordered a battery and charger from eBay and was happy to see it fire up. Played a number of pics already in memory, but got only black screen when first powering on and was able to do all settings and take pics, but not pics taken or shown from that point on. Tried the thigh slap (hard 3 times) and it worked ! Talk about a spit and baleing wire solution, but I can't complain. Who know how long it will last !

Wow, thanks for the camera slapping suggestion. It worked perfectly for my Sony Cyber-shot DSC - W90.
I am really really surprised how well this worked. And I only had to slap it once.
So does anyone know if the camera is now fixed...or should I keep expecting this to happen?

I followed a suggestion posted elsewhere to hold the camera in the palm of your hand, lens down, and slap it forcefully on your thigh. This worked for me on the third of fourth slap.

Well, this is a fatal error that happens with the CCD chip. According to this page, you can try one of two things: You can slap it firmly against your hand in an effort to fix the broken transmission, or you can call up Nikon. According to the link provided above, they are supposed to repair it free of charge and regardless of warranty.
