Nikon coolpix s3300 turn on LCD

Coolpix s3300 does not have any other viewfinder, your LCD panel is your only viewfinder. By default it cannot be turned off.
Please provide more informations so that I can help you.

Nikon coolpix s3300, no screen to take pics but screen works fine to view and use the menu

The only possible thing I can find, is the brightness of the screen. Perhaps it is adjusted to complete dark.
You also could try to press the button with the little camera on it. When you have a USB cable connected to the camera, the screen will be blank too. On my Powershot from Canon, there is a display button, when pressing it I can cycle between normal screen, Grid on the screen and screen off. I can't find anything similar in the manual of the 3300, but perhaps there is a function like that on your camera too?

I have the PS S500. It will not take pictures now, it flashes, but there is nothing on the playback. In fact, when I look at the image before taking a pic, there is nothing there. Sort of like there is...

is the screen displaying anything at all? if not have you tried looking into the viewfinder? occasionally cameras with viewfinders will display pictures on in the viewfinder and not the screen.
Try taking a photo and then check to see if the photo is there on a computer.
other than this, the camera unit inside the camera may have become damaged or detached, it this is the case, unfortunately, there is nothing you can do

Nikon Coolpix 8800 - viewing photo when using viewfinder

Hi there, thanks for coming to FixYa. My name is Rob and I can help you with that.

Take a look at the back of your camera. Just above the display screen, you can see a button that has something that looks like this |O| The button has a horizontal oval inbetween two vertical lines. Press that button when the camera is on and you will see what the camera sees in the monitor. If you press it again, it will revert back to the electronic viewfinder. If it is set to monitor, then it will always show on the monitor until you hit the button to change it.

That will solve your problem. I would appreciate a fixya rating. If you have anymore questions, or need more help, let me know in a comment.

Viewing photos without time and date

Unfortunately the Nikon Coolpix 7900 does not have a 'display' button to take care of this. So you need to go through Menu to access Setup menu. Here you will get option to customize the display.

Stopped taking pictures . . .

When previous pictures display fine but does not take new one directs the problem to camera mode problem. Some component is at fault in the main board which controls menu functions and display is damaged. For the solution, the main board is repaired or replaced by technician. The repair cost may run between $100 to $200 in US.
