SOURCE: black monitor Nikon Coolpix S4 Digital

Give the lense side of the camara a few moderate slaps while moving camara from bright to dark obgects back and forth. the shutter gets stuck and doesn't respond to changing light. that's why outdoor pictures are usually too bright and indoor pictures are black.
good luck.

SOURCE: Just received a mint condition Nikon Coolpix S4

Without some detailed information on how the unit processes video vs. still images, it won't be possible to say for sure, BUT....

The video resolution is processed at a much lower megapixel setting than still pictures. It may be that the defect in the sensor that is causing the lines is on a section of the sensor that is either not used in video mode, or that the software is processing out the defect when it doesn't need all the pixels to give you an image. I think the first is more likely. In video mode, the camera has to run at a lower resolution so that the electronics can store information fast enough to give you video, so it uses a lower resolution. Since it's using the same sensor, it has to either ignore some of the pixels or just not sample them.

If it is the sensor (this is most likely but can't be sure without testing it), then the only way to correct would be a new sensor. It could also be a bad wiring connection, but either way you'd need to get inside to fix. That would be expensive.

I think you should try to use a lower resolution setting and see if maybe that will eliminate the pixels that aren't working. You won't be able to get the highest resolution from the camera, but megapixels are overrated. If you can run it at 3 megapixels or more, you'll be able to do just about anything with it.

hello. Remove the battery and clean the battery contact spots with the eraser end of a common pencil. Also clean the ends of the batteries. Then reinstall batteries and test it. Regards, Joe

I have a nikkon coolpix s4 with a broken lens inside. I just downloaded the repair guide, but its too complicated. Can you do it?

Sorry, no. FixYa is an online information source only.

With all due respect, it's a bit like opening a repair book and asking it to get on with fixing your camera whilst you have a cup of tea ;-)

If you cannot fix this issue yourself using the repair guide which many FixYa Experts usually refer you to then your only remaining option is a professional repair, but it would be far cheaper to buy another camera.

My Nikon Coolpix S5 has a broken lens; it son't fully close/ open. The message displayed on the screen says "Lens cover error". Is it something that can be repaired? How much would it cost to fix...

Hi , The lens cover error is because the stepper motor in the camera is unable to open the lens cover. I have a solution posted in doc "nikon s5 s6 lens cover error repair.doc"  uploaded on site    It will be helpfull for you. You have written that your lense is broken. In that case you can follow the procedure given in my doc to open the camera. You can replace the camera lens if broken.
Happy debugging Mukesh
