    I know the battery works because the camera comes on and takes pictures. The screen is black. My gosh this camera is just 1.5 years old and I paid good money for it. Is there no other solution than throwing it away?

    How much would it cost to repair it?

  • dragonfir990 Mar 22, 2011

    I can't believe the camera should be trashed just because the screen is black. I just bought it 1.5 years ago and it takes wonderful pictures. I know it works because I took a picture and it should up when I plugged the memory card into the computer. what is another reason for the problem.

Can you take a picture with it and download it to your computer? If so its a problem with the LCD. if you can't take a picture or the picture is black then it is a much more serious problem and repair/replacement needs to be considered.
Thank you,
Lee

If the lcd screen is damaged, it usually will go dark. If the camera turns on, and the lens extends, then this could be the case. You can sometimes find one on Ebay and replace it yourself for around $35, otherwise a camera repair shop will charge you around $125.
If the camera isn't turning on at all, the battery or charger could be bad- use a voltmeter to check both. If the battery charge is good, the contacts either on the batteries or inside the camera could be slightly oxidized and need cleaning- use a qtip and alcohol or a pencil eraser. If that doesn't help, the unit might have a bad lcd. You can have a camera repair shop verify this, and get an estimate, or, as I mentioned, buy a replacement lcd screen and replace it yourself.
If you can't find a lcd screen on Ebay, google it or contact Nikon support:

Good luck and hope this help.

The circuitry that runs the screen display has a capacitor the holds voltage to produce the power to turn on the screen
when a capacitot goes bad it will not hold the needed voltage to operate the screen
the cost to repair it exceeds to cost of a new camera

If the camera does shows sign that it has power...(make noise or the lens comes out when you power it ...) it means that it is ok ..but the lcd screen is either dead or the contact ribbon from the lcd is unplugged or damaged ...but if the camera do not show any sign of getting power ...than the batteries do not get power anymore..or it has another kinda contact issue ...If you are sure that the batteries are charged...(check 'em in another camera ..or measure them ..) and the camera still do not show signs of activity ..than the main board is gone ..and usually do not worth to be repaired...cause it costs more than getting a second hand one ...

How to check nikon coolpix s800 battery level


In the upper right corner of the LCD there is a small battery level indicator. When the battery is fully charged, it is all black. As the charge goes down, one side will be white and the other side black to indicate the remaining charge. If you look at item 6 on page 6 of the manual, it shows you. This link will take you to your camera's manual: http://cdn-10.nikon-cdn.com/pdf/manuals/coolpix/S800cRM_EN.pdf

Hi, I have a Nikon coolpix S630 camera - 8 mnths old. Whenever I switch on the camera it says 'Battery Exhausted' and when I try to recharge the same, but it is not charging. Please help. /Suresh


if the camera still under warranty, i suggest to bring it to the center to have it checked both the battery and the cable and also the camera for possible problem. i have a nikon cam before and experienced the same problem, after sending it to the service center, they replaced the battery with a new one and the camera is now ok.

How to use nikon coolpix S630 as webcamera


You can't. It completely lacks that facility; it's a digital stills camera only with some limited video recording functions. It cannot relay a live video feed to ant=y external devices.
