Nikon CoolPix S550 produces blurred and grainy still pictures while producing normal, clear video images. Thinking that it might be battery related, we replaced the old battery with a new one. It still doesn't work right. What's wrong with it?

Blurred and grainy pictures is an indication that the shutter speed is to slow. Locate the setting for shutter speed and make it faster and see if it helps.
Sorry for the slow response. I cannot find the menu setting for shuttert speed. It is my wife's camera and she cannot locate the user manual. Do you know where the shutter setting is?
I do not have an open manual in front of me but I will give you one. If you go to the site below you will be able to download a copy for yourself. It is a pdf so you can read it on the computer or print it out if you wish.
I found the manual. There doesn't seem to be a manual setting for shutter speed. It seems like the ISO setting might affect the shutter speed. Do you have any thoughts on that?
Yes it will have an affect. The lower you set the ISO setting the finer the grain will be. Give it a try.
