Re: Nikon Coolpix S1 - Need help.

This is a common, but unfortunately fatal problem with this model camera. Don't worry, your photos (if taken on the sd card) are all still safe and sound. Just transfer your photos to your computer.

There is nothing you can do that I know of to fix this. But there is a guy (I call him, "the cheap camera repair man"), who fixes this problem for thirty dollars. The website URL for him is:

I hope this helps!

Nikon coolpixS1 lcd

If the menu shows, then the LCD works works. It appears the sensor is bad. Is the camera actually taking pictures? Download them from the memory card to a computer and look at them to see. If they're all black or if the camera isn't taking pictures at all then the problem is more serious than the LCD.

Given the age of the camera, I suspect repairing/replacing the sensor would cost more than getting a new camera.

Black screen

OK, this might sound stupid, but I had the same problem with a similar camera and I had accidentally pushed the Display button. I was about to give my camera up for dead. Try pushing it (the little button on the bottom back that says Disp on it). Does that bring your image back? If not let me know and I'll research further.

Nikon coolpix s1 dig camera ,no picture

With the power off, hold the camera in your palm and smack the front of the camera on your leg or arm. You might have to smack it a few time to get it to work. It has to do with the camera CDD lense (shuttle) being stuck. By smacking it around, it will free up the lense. Being extra gentle with it though. It worked for me. Hope this help.
