Question about Nikon Coolpix S1 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Black screen Hi, I have Nikon coolpix S1 camera. Till last month, I was able to take pictures, but today, when I tried to take one, it showed black screen. The lens opens properly. I am able to see the images which were captured earlier, but, now, I am unable to capture any image because, everything is seen black. I reset all the settings, charged the battery fully, but no change.

    which button are you talking about?

    my camera is nikon coolpix S1 (5.1 megapixcels, 3x zoom nikkor ed lens)

    On the front side, is the lens and the flash, on the top panel, is on/off button and on its right, is flash button. on the back side (the side containing the screen), on the top, there is zoom button (w on left and t on right of the button).

    Below this, there is menu button, followed by a four way button for various option and an OK button at the center of the four way button.

    below this, there is a button to switch from capture mode to view mode on the left and delete button on the right.

    at the bottom on this side, there is menu selector for image/scene/video clip

    which amongst these buttons are you talking about? are you talking about any other button, which i am missing probably?

OK, this might sound stupid, but I had the same problem with a similar camera and I had accidentally pushed the Display button. I was about to give my camera up for dead. Try pushing it (the little button on the bottom back that says Disp on it). Does that bring your image back? If not let me know and I'll research further.

Replace the Camera.
This is a mainboard problem- possibly only a connector worked loose
Sometime gentle squeezing of the camera cace at the base under the screen or gentle slapping in the palm oh hand may induce a re connect.
But essentially this is not going to get repaired

Nikon Coolpix S1 - Need help.


This is a common, but unfortunately fatal problem with this model camera. Don't worry, your photos (if taken on the sd card) are all still safe and sound. Just transfer your photos to your computer.

There is nothing you can do that I know of to fix this. But there is a guy (I call him, "the cheap camera repair man"), who fixes this problem for thirty dollars. The website URL for him is:

I hope this helps!
