won't record photos.
Make sure you've selected a photography mode with your camera, rather than a
playback mode or a video mode. If your camera's battery power is low, the
camera might not be able to record photos.
if your camera's internal memory area or your Memory card is full, the camera won't record
any more photos.
With some cameras, the internal software only
allows a certain number of photos to be recorded on a single memory card
because of how the software numbers each photo. Once the camera hits its limit,
it won't save any more photos. (This problem is more likely to occur when an
older camera is paired with a new, large memory card.) The battery is the root
of most common digital camera issues. Though battery life has been extended as
battery and digital camera technologies evolve, no battery lasts forever. When
your batteries begin to run out, sometimes your camera responds in wacky ways
that may not seem connected. The flash may not come on, the autofocus won't
engage as quickly as it did before or the LCD screen will power off
intermittently. All of your camera's responsiveness is linked to its battery
strength. Change batteries and try to recreate a problem; odds are you won't be
able to. It's a good idea to carry a backup battery for cameras that use
lithium-ion cells or a pack of spares for cameras that use AA. Watch your
battery icon for a general idea of
dissmantle the back case (watch for 1 hidden screw under rubber covers), lift plate on back of lcd screen, remove screw on back of dial, clean where it sits on both sides (most probably from a liquid spill...tea, coffee...) , apply some lube with a cottonbud ore a bit of tisue and rebuild. hope this helps stewart
If you have been using this camera for a long time, most likely the function switch ( the one you turn to change from photo to video mode) contacts are worn out. you have to take this one to a repair shop to change the function switch.
Does the camera turn off or does the screen go black? if the screen goes black but the power lamp stays green then the screen is just turned off (power save mode), If it’s just the screen to turn on the LCD. There are 3 buttons just to the right of the screen, press the center button.
Nikon Coolpix s3 powers on OK when switch is on auto mode, but when switched to "Scene" mode cannot shoot, switch back to auto mode / movie mode, or turn off. If power is turn on when switch is in "Movie" mode, everything is OK. Help!

You may want to check the record lockout safety switch located on the tape. This button can get moved by accident and the camera will refuse to record on that tape. Also, be sure the camera is in "video" mode, not "photo" mode. Some of Canons camcorders have a digital still camera mode which stops the camcorder from functioning because the photos are being recorded to a memory card and not your tape, please check this swithc as well.
