Question about Nikon Coolpix S220 - Aqua Green 2.5" LCD Digital Camera

1 Answer

Is there a design flaw with the LCD for the s220

Nikon Coolpix s220

Today when I turned on my cam the LCD looked disrupted; about 1/4 inch only on the bottom. The rest of the screen was just fine and I was able to take pictures and view them with the addition of the distortion on the bottom. Then after turning the camera off and back on the entire LCD was distorted as described above but with the ENTIRE surface disrupted. This time however it was different; different in a way, that when I move the cam about the screen wouldn't change, it was static. After taking out the battery and turning back on the condition hasn't changed. I then turned it back on and took a picture, hooked the cam to computer and the image was there.

I then searched the manufacturer’s web site for possible firmware updates but found there isn’t any updates for Coolpix s220 that wasn't already installed. I used the software that came with the cam (driver version 6.0.6002.18112) to re-flash the existing firmware (cam OS) version (6.0.600.18112) and restarted the cam, the condition has not changed.

Therefore I believe that this issue may be hardware related, the LCD in particular. Online Coolpix s220 LCD replacement running around $30 but not from Nikon itself but a 3r party.

Researching further online based on what the genial consciences of most online reviews from over 6 sources relative to this particular incident (LCD); needs to be replaced, and what’s perplexing about this whole thing is that these LCD incidents happen out of no where; for the online reviewers, myself and possibility others as well.

Is there a design flaw with the LCD for the Nikon Coolpix s220 that leads to LCD image disruption after about 6 months?

I'm not convinced that the LCD itself is bad, from what is reported. The LCD display has a ribbon connector that connects to the main circuit board, and can come slightly loose. When it does, the camera has to be disassembled to disconnect and reconnect the connector. There is no design flaw that I know or have heard of concerning this camera. This happens with all brands of digital cameras at times, not just the Coolpix. It doesn't cost anything to disconnect and reconnect the ribbon connector, so I would try that first, then replace it if does turn out to be bad. There are videos on YouTube that show how to reseat the connector. Good luck, and hope this helps.

My nikon coolpix s220 wont charge... do i have to have the original charger???


The S220 uses the EN-EL10 battery. The camera does NOT incorporate any charging circuitry, so connecting it to a computer actually drains the battery. In order to charge the battery, you need the MH-63 battery charger or a third-party equivalent.

If you need a charger, you can order one from your local Nikon dealer or from http://www.nikonmall.com
