    I had tried the suggested steps before so I would like to check and see if any other experts have anything different to offer.
    Thanks

    No luck by pulling out the SD Card.

    I agree that MIGHT work but I do not have the right equipment nor the time but thanks for the offer. I could buy a new one for less money than the value of my time trying to find the problem. Plus, it could be a software problem which we could never fix.
    Thanks

Hi,

The signs you mentioned are clearly suggestive of an internal problem with the electronic circuit. The only 2 options you could try that might help :-

1. To do such reset, turn on the camera and hold the menu button down for longer than 5 seconds. A message should hopefully come up on your LCD asking if you want to reset the camera. Select Yes and it is all done.

2. You could pull out the battery and keep the camera for 15-20 minutes.Then put back the battery and see,if that helps.

If not, you need to get the camera repaired, though on most occasions buying a new one is more economical and wise.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    This clearly confirms a problem with circuit. If you have any electronics repair experience, could use multimeter and soldering iron, i could try to find out schematics and then we could try to fix this. It would need a lot of patience, as you might need to inspect and test board level components.

    If wanted to repair, revert and i could provide you few pointers.

    Let me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

    I haven't seen much of firmware issues on this model. You might be right that investing in new camera is often a wise option. However, it depends on person to person. In my shop, i do have people telling me that they have this as a gift and many other reasons and they actually pay for the repair.

    Let me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

Fix the date and time on camera


Press the MENU button. Select the Setup menu (wrench icon). Select Date (clock icon).
Left/right moves between fields, up/down changes their values.

Coolpix s220.stating "lens error"?


You camera might be in it's last leg. These camera has only so many thousands of exposures and then they worn out. If you are a photo bug I would suggest that you upgrade and get a camera with a higher rating in how many frames it can actually capture. You lens motor is worn out and once that happens it is time to say good-bye. Sorry about the bad news but that is reality. Good Luck

How to set up show battery on nikon cameras s220


The camera will show a low-battery indicator when the batteries start to run down. The only indication of a full charge is the lack of the low-battery indicator on the screen. There is nothing you can set up.
