Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX S640 Digital Camera ?

My Nikon Coolpix s640 fell off the chair and all the pictures that were on the camera disappeared. It wasn't a hard hit. Is there any way to retrieve them?


Answers :

Check the memory card. The pictures should still be on the card. If the LCD stopped working, you might not be able to view them on the camera. If you can't download them via the camera, buy a card reader (not expensive). The pictures are still in the memory card, unless deleted or card is broken.

I took my memory card out of the camera, put it in my computer, and proceeded to download. It showed 200+ pictures, then there was nothing but 31. I can not find where these pictures went. I was never in a position to even delete these. They just disappeared. A friend of mine told me that her sister did the same thing, and the camera didn't show them, and somehow, through the support for that camera brand, was able to retrive them. Is there any way to try this on a Kodak camera?

Overexposed photos?? when i hit my shutter release button, sometimes the flash doesn't pop up and the view finder goes black. (it's like the camera is taking a picture but when I release my finger from the shutter release button it doesn't release) The only way to "get out of it" is to turn the camera off then back on. when i go to playback...it is a white picture. are my settings messed up and how do i avoid this in the future. Many picture moments are missed because of this!


The view finder "going black" on an SLR is caused by the mirror being up, which is also when the camera is actually taking the picture! The mirror sends the light from the lens to either the viewfinder or the sensor. When it's down, the light goes ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens
