Question

Black screen?

My screen is black and takes black pictures. I can still look at old pictures that are saved to the device and see how much battery power etc, but it will not take pictures of anything but blackness. Is it taking pictures of a different dimension? :P What do I do to fix it?

If you’re only able to see previous pictures and the screen stays blank when trying to take new ones, you will need to send your camera for evaluation.

Have you ever dropped it? You may have jarred the image sensor. Take it to a camera repair shop or ship it to Nikon.

Question

Why is my screen blank? How can I fix it?

When I turn on my camera my view screen is blank (or you might call it white). The camera still takes pictures but I can't view what I'm aiming at or see any menus. Both of my batteries are fully charged.

Try a backup battery. If the problem persists you will need to send the camera and the charger to be evaluated.

Question

Lines on pictures?

When I take a picture on my Coolpix s220, the image shows lines across it (line of picture, black line, line of picture, black line, repeating). What could have caused this and how do I fix it? The included picture shows a mild version of the problem.

Question

I have an "out of memory" message on my Coolpix S220 when I turn it on. It's a new 2GB Kodak memory card that has been cleared of the old pix.

I know the memory card is good, b/c it held about 200 pictures from this past summer that I've since downloaded and deleted from the card. Any suggestions? Thank you!

Format the card, deleting will get rid of old images but they will still be hiding on there, formatting will wipe the card clean.
