    the same!?



  • ciro12 Nov 10, 2008

    I have a similar problem with my Samsung G600. When I try to use the camera,
    only black image with a white camera icon appears,
    and then I only see one pixel of the camera preview.
    The camera still takes images, but there is no preview.
    I tried all reset codes but the problem is still there.

Try master reset on your mobile maybe is problem with software.The samsung G600 supports microSD external memory maybe you need to software update or select settings, camera, on, ok.
Or connect to the pc with troubleshooting.

Lens error


This can work with CoolPix S10
1) Remove battery.
2) Replace Battery (Insure it is fully charged)
3) Press the Shooting/Preview button and keep pressing it while you press the power on button. This tells the camera to go into PREVIEW MODE without checking the lens. See if you can preview a few photos and that it works in preview - If it does NOT I cannot help you here.
4) If the Camera Works in Preview mode then press the Shooting/Preview button to put it back into "Take Photo Mode".
5) There can be a delay but it starts up without the lens error.
6) Make sure the ZOOM IN and OUT works and in most cases if the lens operates then you can take a photo. If the Zoom in and Out does not work you have a jammed lens.
7) If the LENS is Jammed AND it is OUT of warranty you 'might' want to tap the lens barrel against your palm. I have found when you remove the battery you can gently tap the lens into telephoto mode by tapping the back of lens assembly into your palm.
