Question about Digital Cameras

1 Answer

Black photos When I turn on my camera (Nikon Coolpix S5, I believe), I can access old photos and see the symbols that are usually on the screen when it used to take photos. However, if I take a photo with it, it is just black. The camera flashes and acts like it has taken a photo. There is no lens cap, so that is not the problem. Is the camera simply broken?

This is unfortunately one ccd fault...you must change the ccd of the camera. it s possible to find the entire lens block in international seller for many types of camera...search if you can find your lens to a good price and prove to change it alone...why if you go to one professional fixer..the cost is higher as the value of the camera,

The camera's ccd, the image sensor , is either faulty or has become disconnected. This is a fault that can't be fixed by fiddling with the settings. If the camera is under warranty, then return it for repair. If it is not, it may cost more to repair it than to replace it with a new and better camera. They get cheaper and more capable every year- don't spend too much restoring an old model.

Bad CCD, this is like film in a film camera. If the CCD becomes faulty it can no longer record images. This as a rule unless you can repair yourself is a repair not worth doing.

Nikon CoolPix S5 - Same trouble


I went through the process of sending my camera in to the nikon repair center. it was used very little, in fact it appears brand new. it had never been mistreated, wich is what nikon tried to convince me must have happened because they refuse to believe that they have sold an inferior product. they never told me what is wrong with the camera but wanted $146 to fix it and send it back. the only solution is that everyone send their s5 back to the service ctr and refuse to pay to have them repaired. they e-mail a survey and if we all give them low marks maybe they will decide that they should take care of their customers a little better, especially with todays economy. the survey asks if you would purchase or recommend NIKON again. I told them that I WOULD AVOID NIKON LIKE A SICK CHINESE CHICKEN.
