Question about Nikon Coolpix S4000 Digital Camera
If this happens only if you are trying to take videos, then you might be having memory issues. Do you have a memory card inserted on the camera? If there is none, then the camera is using its internal memory which is only 45MB; this is too small if you have stored a lot of pictures on the camera already, thus it runs out of memory easily.
However, if you are using a memory card, try to free up some memory on it since recording videos requires a lot of space and when the camera detected that problem, it automatically shuts itself off. If this does not solve the problem, try to format your SD card using your camera. Just be advised that doing this would delete all stored pictures or videos on the memory so make sure you copy them first on your computer.
To format your memory card,
Tap MENU, then select the "wrench" symbol or the Setup Menu. Then select Format Card. You will be asked to Format the card so just click Yes. Wait for the process to finish and then try taking videos again.
Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FixYa.
