Question about Nikon COOLPIX S6 Digital Camera
The camera turns on fine, batteries are charged and everything. but the screen is black. it acts as if it was going to take a picture but the screen does not change from a black screen as if the lens cap was on. and when i take the picture, it takes a black image. still a black screen. what do i do? i dont have insurance for it. my camera is a nikon coolpix s6. i bought six months ago. will i still be covered under a warranty?
Oh double my gosh! I had just finished reading every horrible posting on different websites regarding the Coolpix S6 and was about to just trash the camera when I found this posting. THANK YOU so much for taking the time to post this solution. I thought it might be a joke but then again, what could I lose? It absolutely worked. Unbelievable! My screen has been black for almost a year now and have been intending to try to get it in somewhere to be fixed, just haven't had time.

This is amazing! at first I didnt believe the whacking would work. I tried hitting it with my fist/elbow etc but that didnt work, what worked for me:
1) with camera off lay it lcd side down on some carpet
2) fold a few pieces of newspaper up and cover the top of the camera (acts as a soft cover)
3) hit the camera(under the newspaper) with short sharp blows (i used my fire poker long ways)
this totally worked!!!

I would check with Nikon and see if it's covered under warranty still. There could be something going on with the CCD unit
