Question about Cameras

I have a Nikon s1 camera I borrowed from a friend last week. When I went to use it today the LCD did not display. You can take blank pictures and you can record sound on the video but no video at all. Any ideas?

This definitely sounds like a problem with the CCD inside the camera. If its an older camera not worth repairing. I would just replace it. This is actually a fairly common problem. Especially on some older camera's. For a while there was a big problem with CCD chips inside digital camera's. You can get a camera that about twice as good for around 70$. I would almost bet this is just a coincidence, nothing that you caused.
Thank you,
Lee

Hi,

CCD Failure. Call Nikon, they may or may not repair it FREE but other camera manufacturers are doing it FREE repairs because it is considered as manufac fault in CCD units.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

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.

When I try to view my pictures on the LCD screen, the white area of the picture flashes. Last week on vacation, it would intermitenly stop taking pictures. I would have to set the lens and camera to...


Hello,

If this is the same as my Nikon this is the overexposed highlight display option.
This shows areas of the photograph that are overexposed slightly.

On my Nikon I use the up and down arrows on the back to cycle the LCD display options.
Stop when you get a display that does not flash.

As for the focus problem check if you have set the front control to AF not M, also check if the lens is set to A not M.

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.

Pictures are black


My 4300 works fine until this week. No picture display on the LCD screen. Settings like date, exposure, etc.. are fine on the LCD screen. Able to get into setup mode and the colour menu selection box is fine. This shows that the LCD screen is working fine. Prior to this happening, I notice that when I took pictures in zoom mode, the picture turn out to be orange. I suspect this is caused by electronic failure. Light entering the lens cannot be transmitted to the LCD screen. Some photoelectronic stuff had reached its MTBF (mean time between failure)? Is there a way to save this camera?

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.

Canon Powershot S1 IS - Both in LCD and View finder - only blank is coming


Sorry this aint a solution. I too have the same problem as Mr.Gandhi is facing. I too bought this camera approximately 2 years ago.Since last cupla weeks, im facing this problem on a random note...I cud take a few snaps in between and upload without any problem but again the camera could not capture new images even with a set of 4 new batteries. Whenever i switch the mode to take snaps from preview mode (which is still working fine), the LCD or the view finder becomes dark with some blue colored horizontal lines appearing as if its because of some kinda interference!
