Melted shadowed and blurred pinkish pictures are symptom of defective CCD sensor.

The CCD sensor is the devices that captures light to generate picture. In your camera this part is faulty and must be replaced.

The S2 IS is a very nice camera, but is known to be susceptible to stuck shutter problems. 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.

There are pink tones in pictures Help!


Generally, if you get a pinkish tone with low contrast, it means that your sensor in the camera is shot and will either need to be fixed by a professional or replacement of the camera itself. You'll sometimes also see stripes in the images as well that can alternate dark and light.

Same problem.


If you're not able to view the images while capturing the images. Then, it seems that there is a CCD issue with the Camera.

Sounds like you have two problems, both which mean bad news. The clicking could be a broken gear in the lens unit or off track lens.
The colors may be caused from a bad ccd or sensor internally.

Auto reset following each picture shot


Well most digital cameras are not equipped to allow to take a lot of action photos or just snap off various pictures of the same subject in a relatively short time. The models which are ill-equipped require more time between shots to save the image to the memory card. Just imagine the time it takes to save something on a disk. Keep in mind that the burst mode allows temporary storage of images. This way, you could take as many pictures as you can in no time. With the Nikon Coolpix 4300 Digital Camera, you can expect to find a shutter speed of 1/1000 to 8 seconds. One more camera feature include a Self-Timer mode, which provides a three- or 10-second delay between the time the Shutter button is pressed and the time the image is actually captured... Good luck!
