Question about Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera
Hello I have a nikon 5700- owned it for 2 years without a problem. I'm no photo expert but I am an electronics technician. The camera powers on fine...the lens moves out like its supposed too... menus and buttons work corectly .... But when you take a picture - its like the shutter is stuck shut- the picture is black with no video. I have 3 batteries 1 new- tried them all fully charged with no success. I can see the shutter phycicaly opening when I power on the camera - so its not actually stuck like I initally thought.I have reset the settings to factory presets still nothing.... Any Ideas? A little internet research has said something about solder connections go bad on this model. But the problem should seem intermitent ....its not - once it failed it has never worked... both lcd screens work fine and messing with all the menues seem to work but no change in the symptom.. thanks JIm
There was a line of defective Sony sensors that went into a lot of cameras between 2004 and 2005. As far as I know the 5700 was the primary victim in the Nikon line but Nikon is offering to repair or replace the affected cameras regardless of warranty status. http://www.nikonusa.com/email_images/nikonusa/service_advisory/coolpix.html Good luck
