Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX S5 Digital Camera ?

Black Screen My s5 is doing the same thing - working fine yesterday then all of the sudden black screen with a slight hint of snow - has anyone heard anything??/



Answers :

We often see the CCD and the lens iris being the source of this problem. Look in the lens while the camera is powering up, you should see the iris opening, if not, you have a defective CCD, Hope this helps you! \015\012\015\012Joe Weibel \015\012Custom Electronics\015\012Customelectronics.org

Black screen Hi, I have a Powershot S1iS (CANNON), and it worked just fine for about 2 years now. Last week - suddenly the screen went black, and I can not see anything. When I switch to see the pictures I've taken before, I am able to do that, and I do see them. When I try to take a picture - I'm able to, but the picture is black. Can it be a memory card problem (since it's a new one, and I didn't swap it, to verify that). Thanks - Shlomi [email protected]


Someone else posted that Canon fixed it for free. \015\012\015\012Here's a link to the Canon service site that explains their take on the problem. Yes they will fix it if it is indeed a CCD issue.\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

Hi there, I was taking photos with a 3 years old canon ixus 70 and suddenly the screen became black!! from then taking picture was impossible it comes out black too. All the menu buttons work properly, battery is full, sim card is correctly installed, video sound works but no images. This camera hasn't never been dropped and the lens looks pretty good. It doesn't come from the DISP. button because I first thought it was coming from this one but finally not... Any idea, ever heard about that prob


First verify that your camera is actually an SD500 (takes SD cards) and not an S500 (takes CF cards). If your camera is actually an S500, this would probably be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free worldwide, and may ... Canon PowerShot SD500 / IXUS 700 Digital Camera

I own an Olympus Evolt E-500. Unfortunately, it was dropped and landed on the corner of the case near the battery door. The camera turns on, lcd screen, flash, and shutter seem to work, BUT pictures are black. Difficult to view anything thru viewfinder. Camera store told me they didn't know what was wrong, but would cost me at least $270 to repair. 1) does anyone know what is wrong, 2) can I fix it myself?


I found this camera available for purchase as brand new for $450. Spending nearly $300 to repair an older version may no be a wise choice. You may find there is a market for the camera in its current non-working condition on eBay.With that ... Olympus EVOLT E-500 Digital Camera

Hi there, I have a Canon Powershot S3IS and just lately when you try to turn it on it comes up with a message that says E24. I have looked through the manual and cannot find anything resembling this message. It turns on for a few seconds and then the screen goes black and displays the E24 message. I was taking photos during a recent wedding I attended and then it cut out suddenly and displayed the E24 and since then will not turn on. Please help me as my brother and his family are arriving soon

Black Screen I have taken really good care of my camera and it has never been dropped. I went on a Cruise a few months ago and one day into the cruise the screen wouldn't show anything. It was just a black screen. When I took pictures they turned out black too. I am still able to navigate the menus and see pictures on my SD card. Even after returning to Colorado, a dry climate, the screen is always black and taking black pictures. Is there something I can do to fix this problem or should I just

Canon SD4000 camera, when hitting the power button, the screen remains black screen, the green light blinks twice, lens zooms out, shutter opens. Screen remains black, and I do not seem to have any control at all; pressing the zoom button doesn't move lens, no notable reaction to anything. Hit the power button again, the lens zooms back into it's original position, shutter closes (occasionally does not shut completely), green light blinks twice, screen remains black. Tried turning on w/o SD card

This sounds like the CCD sensor is faulty ( this is the device that generates picture in both v-cams and normal digital cameras and sits behind the lens ). Playback is fine but no image ( or very 'noisy' image ) in capture mode.\015\012Easy to repair ... Digital Cameras

Black Screen ive got a black screen when i take pictures; everything else on the camera works. the menu's pop up; the pictures ive taken show on review. but the actual view doesnt show anything and is completely black so whenever i take a picture its just all black. i just got this camera for christmas and it hasnt been dropped or exposed to liquid. it doesnt show a lens error number either; because i dont even think it knows it has one.. its just black though.


I have the exact problem. I came on slowly, some days it would work, some days it wouldnt. Finally i couldnt get it working at all. Sent it back to Kodak as it was still under warranty, the repair center claims it was "physical damage". They admit th ... Kodak Easyshare M753 Digital Camera

... Sony Cybershot W330 Digital Camera

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


Since it is taking a picture, and showing it up afterwards on the display, it definitely sounds like you activated the DISP or DISPLAY button. Seeing that you've used this camera for years, you should know that this manually turns the screen on and ... Canon PowerShot S410 / IXUS 430 Digital Camera

LCD Display I haven't used my canon for a while - I've just turned it on and though the LCD display works to show pictures I've taken and the settings screen - I can't see anything in it when I take a picture (it's just black) when I press the Disp button it just switches from a black screen to the settings screen - please tell me what I can do so that I can see the image in the LCD before I take the picure.
