Nikon S6- LCD screen black

My LCD screen is black all the time, even when trying to shoot a picture. I can view the setup options on the screen however, and before I downloaded and deleted previous pictures from my camera, I could view these on playback mode. Now the playback is black, and the shutter seems very slow even when I try to take a picture when the LCD is black. What is wrong? What can I do?

Canon eos rebel xsi screen is black when taking a picture but shows picture afterwards..Menu works also so screen works but just black when trying to take a pic..


Set the shooting mode to a Creative Zone mode. Press MENU to enter the menu. Under the Setup tab, select [Live View function settings] then press SET. Select [Live View shoot] and press SET. Select [Enable] and press SET. Press MENU to exit the menu. Press SET. The image should now appear on the LCD instead of through the viewfinder.

Refer to "Live View Shooting," Chapter 5 in the manual for more details and the limitations of the LiveView mode.

My coolpics s6 has a black screen when in picture taking mode - as if the lens is not open. icons display, and show pictures mode works ok.


Switch on the screen in setup. The screen is now in 'power saving' mode and does not lit up while taking pictures.

The Monitor screen doesn't work when I want to take a photo, I can only see picture through eye piece.


If your screen works in playback mode, the screen and flexible circuit boards are intact. To shoot an image using the LCD screen you must first activate the "live view" function in the setup menu, and then press the live view (Lv) button to view your image on the LCD.

Problem with screen


hi...
I hit the camera with my hand about 10 times, the screen came back. When you hit the camera, be careful do not hit LCD or any fragile part, just hit main body. It does hurt your hand though.
Wired camera, I would not buy any nikon from now on. Rubbish!

thank u

Do we have option to take pics through LCD in Nikon D40X?


Hi. No you can't shoot by viewing the LCD, only by using the eye-level viewfinder. Some SLR cameras have "live-view", which lets you use either the eye-level finder or the LCD. It really isn't a very good method of shooting with an SLR, as you first have to lock the mirror up, compose your shot, then drop the mirror back down. Using the eye-level finder also blocks out the bright light that makes the LCD difficult to use in sunlight. Hope this helps answer your question.

NIKON D70 CAMERA LCD SCREEN


brickerbg,
That option isn't available for the D70 some manufactureres call it live view, sort of like looking through a video camera's viewfinder and it is what is going to to get recorded or what the picture is going to be. Some point-and-shoot cameras have that but no viewfinder. Digital camera owners have expressed a desire to have that option on DSLR's for a long time now so camera makers are adding that feature. It comes at a higer price now, but soon it will be a standard just like video for DSLR's (D-90). The reason it has been tough to add is that it is a real power drain on the battery to keep the display on and have the auto focus and metering going at the the same time which is what has to happen if it is a "live view". You can keep your display (of pictures taken on longer from the menu) but that's not really what you are after. Hope that helps.

I would check with Nikon and see if it's covered under warranty still. There could be something going on with the CCD unit

Nikon S6 Black LCD


If you want to follow my way to try fixing it yourself, keep reading and do it at your own risk. You paid several hundread dollars for the camera and I just paid $20 for it. Therefore, I tried everything I can to make it work, even if I had to open the camera body to play with the inside. Fortunately, it was not neccessary to take it apart.

Once again, AT YOUR OWN RISK to follow my way to get back your real time image screen.
Read the following steps once and make sure you understand before action.

(1) Load your camera with a freashly recharged battery.
(2) Switch on to see if it's working and still without the real time screen.
(3) Switch it off, and hold it tight in you palm with the LCD facing inward.
(4) Now, with you palm up, you should be able to see the model name 'CoolPix S6' under the lens and the flash.
(5) While holding the camera and aiming at the 'CoolPix S6', raise your other hand with the fist next to your ear.
(6) Match the aim as describe in(4) to the aim of your elbow 's protruded part and make pratice moves. Yes, you'are going to smack it
to your elbow.
(7) When you are ready, try first not to hit your elbow too hard once.
(8) Switch the camera on to check. If you have the 'Screen' now, congratulation! If not, repeat (4) to (8) but with a stronger impact
Force. You might have to try more times until your elbow could not take the sore.

I got mine fixed by performing the above steps just once, but I started at a medium impact force. Before this fix, I tried to whack it on both sides, the top and the bottom to my knee cap.

Why I chose knee cap and elbow? They hurt if you strike too hard. The target is to apply enough impact force to shake but not break the parts inside the camera.

Good Luck!!

You should be able to turn the screen on while taking pictures so that you can see what is going on a little easier. Here is a link to the manual where you can find where in the menu to turn the LCD on. I tried to get the manual for myself so that I could give you page numbers and such, but it requires that i give a serial number number off the camera, so be sure to have your camera handy when you do this.
