Question about Nikon Coolpix S4 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Black Screen Hi up until yesterday camera worked fine, I had it in my handbag and it may have got knocked. Whenever I turn the camera on the LCD screen is now black and when I take a new picture that also just comes out black, although I can view old pictures. I called Olympus who to repair this camera will charge more than the cost of a new one. Love my camera and would like to have a quick fix for this problem if poss. Please help!!! Screen is black. It looks like I have the lens cap closed but of course I do **te. I too can view previously taken pictures and when I take a picture it too is blank. I do **t believe the camera has been k**cked. I went into settings and reset to factory default settings but it didn't help. I also changed the batteries but that had ** effect.

Seems the contact to the sensor, or the sensor itself is gone. Not easy to DIY. I suggest to bring it to an independent service shop in the area and get a quote,

    Check also that the shutter at the fron of the camera is not locked, in that case can be an easy fix.

    If the shutter is closed then is probably locked. Try first removing the battery and restarting the camera several time, chek then you are in shot mode and try to shot. If it doesn't open you may need to disassemble the cap that holds the shutter to unlock it.

    unfortunately, these digital cameras do NOT like shock or vibration. the innards are not that well protected..

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?

Fuji f700


I recently had trouble with the LCD Display coming up with a black screen. So I mailed it to Fuji with a letter explaining the problem. About 3 weeks later I got it back in the mail and it seem to be working fine until a month later. I turned it on and the LCD display show a black screen only now it has white lines. I'm so incredible mad and extremely dissapointed in Fuji. Reading online I have notice many people having trouble with Fuji Products. I WILL NEVER BUY a Fuji again!!!

I just started having this problem with my canon PowerShot A310 and checked their service website which says "Effective immediately, and regardless of warranty status, Canon will repair, free of charge, products exhibiting the above-mentioned malfunction if the malfunction is caused by the CCD image sensor. Canon will also cover the cost of shipping and handling in connection with this repair." Here's the website link: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&keycode=2112&fcategoryid=221&modelid=9829
