Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix S550 Digital Camera ?
Display screen is black
\015 My camera screen is black when turned on, but appears to be working. The camera turns on and off, continues to zoom, take pictures and the screen is back lit when on. Any ideas?\015
I've been told it's the LCD Screen. I have a new LCD screen but now can not find any instructions to change it out. It is not in the manual. I wish I could help. And this sight appears to be complete useless.

Can't get a picture on the screen - just shows black. When we turn the camera on the LCD screen displays the function choices and menu options, but will not display any image. If we take a picture using the view finder and then check for the image, nothing is displayed. We just checked the memory card, and it doesn't even take a photo. All we got was black. Any suggestions?

No image Hi, My DSC-F717 has been sitting unused for 2 months, but in safe place. When I turn it on now, everything works perfectly except there is no image in either the view finder or the display screen, almost as if the lense cap was on! All of the settings are sown in on the display but other than that the screen is black. When I try to film something it's the same, I get sound but but just a black image.

Powershot s410 My s410 is "old" :( but I love it and has been working amazingly over 10,000 photos in the 4 years I've had it. All of a sudden this week-end when I am in auto or manual mode the screen is black - I can't see what I am shooting. What is odd is that if I am in the panoramic mode or video mode the screen works. Even odder is that if I actually take a picture blindly (since the screen is black) it shows up on the display! Help... :) Thanks
