Question about Nikon Coolpix S4000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My camera was working completely fine and then after taking a picture it just went black, lens out and not moving. so i plugged it into my computer, thinking maybe it needed to be charged, but got nothing. lens didn't budge, screen didn't change from black, the little green 'charge' light didn't illuminate. i tried taking out and replacing the battery but nothing happened. how can i fix this?

Since this camera is fairly new, it may be worth your while to go to the http://www.nikon.com website and call the support repairs department. Even if the camera is not under warranty, you may be able to get repairs for little or nothing.
This may depend on if it is a common problem.
Before you call, make sure the battery is either new or charged fully.
If the camera has been dropped, accidentally got water inside, or other damage in most cases will void all kinds of warranties.
If the camera simply stopped working with full charge or new batteries, then you indeed should call Nikon.

There is nothing you can do. A tech will need to diagnose and repair it. Sell it at an online auction house to recover some money.

I'm not exactly sure how to help you. But can you tell me:
1. How old is the camera?
2. How long have you used it?
3. When was the last time you used it?
4. Was it working then? w/ problems or w/out problems?
5. Who was the last one using it?
6. Did you drop it? Or get water or any liquid on it?

Black screen when I turn the camera on


You could be suffering from a frozen Iris. This is the part of the lens which varies the amount of light entering the camera. Or the lens cover may not be opening when you switch on. Have you tried pushing the middle button of the 3 which run vertically on the rear of the camera below the mode switch. I had one on my bench a few weeks back which had an intermittent black screen. It started of as black and when I stripped it, cleaned all contacts and put it back together it the flashed on and off. I then stripped it again and went over every cable associated with the lens, CCD and video board checking them for breaks and recleaning them and bingo, everything came good. I have another 72 at the moment with a similar problem, I fixed the same way but got left with lines running across the picture. P72's aren't the best cameras picture wise and are close to the most troublesome, at least around here. For any of the above faults I'd recommend a visit to your local tech. Good luck. BMW
