It's a manufacturer error which Nikon will fix for free, even if you bought the camera second hand. Go to http://www.nikonusa.com/email_images/nikonusa/service_advisory/coolpix.html
I just got mine back - took about five weeks because they were out of stock on the CCD (Charge Couple Device) that they had to replace. Don't give up on the camera. It's worth having it repaired since all it will cost you is to send it to them.

Problem with canon a420 digicam


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Note that your camera will not be able to take 15 second exposures, as per the above "fix". Instead, place the camera in manual mode, turn off the flash, and take the exposures in a darkened room. This should give you a couple seconds, just enough time to open the battery door while the red and yellow lights are flashing.

Nothing shows on viewing screen


I had something like this occur with a minot mini video camera only it locked up in the "On" setting, meaning I could see a display on the screen but could not turn it off. I suggest you look very closely for a reset hole at the bottom somewhere, a place where a safety pin or the straightened end of a paper clip could be inserted. If no Reset can be found, then try holding in the Power On/Off for as long as 90 seconds. This may clear the problem. I would also suspect no power due to low charge or no charge on the battery, battery installed incorrectly, or battery not charged up.

Can you play back pictures and is the quality of these ok ? If you can but there is no image in capture mode then the CCD sensor is faulty and needs replacing.

Blank screen


So you can see images that are on the card from previous taking but not new? Just to confirm - this is an optical SLR? With a mirror that flips up when you press the button - is that right? If so it souns like to mirror is not going up. Can you hear it go up? Come back
