I got a used S4000, which I almost gave up on before I finally took it into low light and got its LCD to light up using a fully charged battery (Nikon EN-EL10).

It works fine except that the Touch Screen doesn't respond sometimes. The main remaining problem is turning it off. I must put it into Preview mode to get the lens to eventually retract; then I must wait a couple of minutes for the idle camera to turn itself off due to lack of operation. (I guess I could just remove the battery after the lens retracts.)

Have you had similar problems with one of your Coolpix models? (If so, which one? And did you invent a fix for it?)

Thanks to all of you.
