Question about Nikon Coolpix S51c Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera slow After taking a single picture on my Nikon Coolpix it takes forever to allow me to take another one right after. It shows me an icon of an hour glass turning upside down for at least 5 sec or more. I've missed a lot of good shots because my camera takes so long loading an image I just took.

You must have changed the option to store the images in .tiff format so while storing in tiff format it compresses the image so it takes time for u ... so i suggest u to change that setting to .jpg uncompressed mode by doing this though it takes more space and allows u to store less photos in memory but it will fast while storing ...
in .tiff format as it compresses the image it takes time but the memory usage will be low this allows u to store more photos...

My camera turns on and shows the menu icons on a black screen. I can take a picture, and the flash works, but nothing is captured. After I take the black picture it works just fine, though.


Please contact your nearest Nikon Dealer the connectors of the Screen at the back are loose / happens sometimes, as far as we had the Problems (owners of Photo chain stores) Nikon always regarded is as a Guarantee Replacement.

Nikon coolpix 4300 monitor lights up and displays


It is time to replace that camera. If the sensor is bad it will not take pictures, if the play back does not work it will take picture but no show. If you camera wont do either than it is too far gone for repair and should be replaced.

What does the battery icon show? If it shows an almost depleted battery the camera will only let you take one picture, then disable it from taking any more.
It's possible the battery won't hold a charge, so you should consider testing the camera further using an external charger or getting a new battery.

Problem with nikon coolpix 8700


Same problem that would not allow me to take a picture without pressing the LOCK button on my Nikon 8700. Here is how I believe I fixed the problem:

Turn the camera ON.

Press MENU button on your camera to bring up the menu.

Scroll down to SET-UP, open the SET-UP menu by scrolling right.

In the SET-UP menu, scroll all the way down to FUNC (Controls) on page 2/3 , open the FUNC (Controls) menu by scrolling right.

You are now presented with 2 options:FUNC and AE-L, AF-L)

Select the FUNC option by right scrolling.

Choose the 2nd option: i.e the mountain, flower and timer icon (distance, macro and self-timer icon) by right scrolling.

Press the MENU button to get out of the menu.

Attempt to take a picture without pressing LOCK.

Should work! Anyways, it worked for me.

Cheers.

Image darkness


You might have to change your selected media choice. For example, if you are taking a close up picture you can select the face icon on the camera, etc. The problem is that the shutter isnt allowing that light to absorb in your lense which creates a darker image. You might have to use your flash or change the environment control to help the camera decifer where you are and what you are taking a picture of.. I own a D50 which is a Nikon, that is the same thing for me. I'm unsure of the coolpix, but typically you can point your lense towards ambient light to help the lense open up if its set to auto, then take the picture. Think of it as your eye, it needs that light in order to see.

Takes forever to take multiple pictures


My camera has different "modes" and if I put it in the "action" mode it seems to work more quickly between pics. There should also be a setting to change how long the pictures is displayed after taking, if you shorten that it will recover quicker to allow the next picture taking.
