20 Most Recent Nikon Coolpix S1 Digital Camera Questions & Answers


I am confused. If you can FORMAT the SD card when it is in the camera (FORMAT is successful) you SHOULD be able to use it.

hi,
it is in steady shot/ anti shake mode, take the menu screen,scroll to anti shake option and select to normal mode, if it is difficult, please re-set to default position.

It probably shows that low shutter speeds are used because of low light = danger of blurred pics from handshake - use the flash if possible, choose highter ISO setting and/or just try to hold the camera steady.

Something must be wrong on the camera. Did you try to press the display button several times?
Dis you remove the battery for a few moments and replaced it?
Just a few things you could try before you think it is really defect.

The S1 uses SD cards. SD cards top out at 2GB, any larger cards are actually SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity). SDHC devices will accept SD cards, but SD devices will not accept SDHC cards. They will fit physically but not electronically.

In fact, the S1 manual does not list any cards larger than 1GB.

If the menu shows, then the LCD works works. It appears the sensor is bad. Is the camera actually taking pictures? Download them from the memory card to a computer and look at them to see. If they're all black or if the camera isn't taking pictures at all then the problem is more serious than the LCD.

Given the age of the camera, I suspect repairing/replacing the sensor would cost more than getting a new camera.

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Nikon Transfer or Picasa.

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair centre for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea
