The screen shows pictures saved in the memory and does all the functions in that. But when brought in the capture mode to take a picture, it shows a BLACK Srceen and also saves the new picture as Black screen.
The sound of zooom in zoom out can also be heard but nothing seen on the screen whne in capture mode.
Please suggest if there is any troubleshooting option available for this issue.
Its a WORLDWIDE problem with NIKON S4 & NIKON S10 also. The worst thing is you get it repaired & after few days again get it repaired as its never ending as per my experience. if u have S4, even worse, S10's retail prise is too cheaper than S4, so can't even think about resale.
Nikon has left us to only mourn guys. find a local repaire guy & fix the charge, tell him we r friends for life ;(

On every computer keyboard there is a <b>Print Screen</b> button. The basic functionality of this key is to capture the snap-shot/screen-shot of the current screen you are viewing on your monitor and save it as an image file. Once you click this button the screen image is captured and stored in the computer's memory (clipboard). Then you can use the <b>Ctrl + V</b> buttons together to paste it into any image processing software such as <b>Microsoft Paint, Adobe Photoshop or any other Office applications such as Word, Excel or Powerpoint.</b> Once you paste it into any of these applications you can save it and then use the image later for any purpose. <br /><br /><b><u>Here are the steps to use the print screen feature.</u></b><br />1) When you have the part you want captured from your monitor exactly as it looks, look for the <b>Prt Scr</b> or <b>Print Screen</b> button on your keyboard and press it once.<br />2) Now navigate to Microsoft Paint: <b>Start>All Programs>Accessories>Paint</b><br />3) Once Paint is open simply press the <b>Ctrl + V</b> keys in combination to paste the screen shot, or you can go <b>Edit></b>Paste to do the same.<br />4) You can now, resize it, modify it if required and save it under any name you want for later retrieval.<br /><br /><br /><b>NOTE:</b> If you have opened more than one windows in the screen and you want to capture the snap shot of just the active window and not the entire screen, then press the <b>Alt</b> key while pressing the <b>Prt Scr</b> button. This will capture the image of the active window only<br />Now that you have mastered the art of print screen you can use this to capture error messages in applications for you to use when in need of tech support.

Generally the GIF format works best when saving screen shots of application windows. The JPEG format usually makes screen shots (especially those with text) blurry, blotchy and discolored.

The Windows "clipboard" is a term used to
describe the temporary storage space in memory where an item is placed
when you copy or cut. When you paste, the item is transferred to the
program you're working in. If you copy something else, the old item is
replaced with the new. You can't manipulate the clipboard directly; it's
only used for copy and paste operations.
if there is an 'fn' key on your keyboard then your combo would be
fn+prtsc+alt - to capture top windows and fn+prtsc to capture entire screen
If however your prt sc key is combined with another key and written on top then you need to use
shift+prt sc + alt to capture top windows and shift+prtsc to capture entire screen
