    My 5700 developed the same problem, and I fixed it the same way, ie, turn off the flash.  Also, if you get into the menu's and save this setting as 1, 2 or 3, the camera will remember to turn off the flash and everything works, sometimes even the flash.  Otherwise, a wonderful camera, and to protect yourself, buy the metal lens shade - it protects the extended lens from bumps and breakage.

My flash isn't working on my Coolpix 5700. I'm


Hi.

From what I have heard Nikon has recalled the Coolpix 5700 because of the SB error. It has something to do with a connector coming away from the printed circuit board. I recommend that you get in touch with Nikon and see if they will repair the flash for you. Click on the link below to contact them.

I own a Nikon Coolpix 5700 and recntly I face a problem with the memory card, The memory card is Nikon Compact Flash 32MB and the camera shoes that I can have Basic 51 photoes, Noraml 26 Fine 13 and Hi...


Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera memory card failure:

This camera has capabilities which far exceed the data storage of a 32 MB memory card. Put what you can onto the Nikon Compact Flash card and purchase another, larger, 2 GB card for your other storage. This should easily meet both the needs of the camera and your own. The original card must have had data deterioration or a mistake was made in transferring the pictures.

Go to Google and download their Picasa App; it is great for anyone transferring their photography from one storage type to another and you can use it for publishing material to the Web or to your family group e-mail.

Please comment on the success of this solution!

Can't change nikon 5700 to Hi resolution


Is the compact flash card full, or close to it? If you don't have another CF card, see if there is a bad pic you can delete. Or maybe 2. Hint: anything out of focus. ;)

Re: nikon 5700 faulty flash


It appears that you have a ccd problem.
That particular model had a ccd problem, whether or not the flash is part of it, I do not know.
Here is the link to FREE REPAIR if the problem is the ccd.

I have sent some Nikons in for repair, and they have been fixed free. The shipping will cost you to send in.

Blurry images on a Coolpix 5700?


This camera was in the time when the ccd had problems.

Call Nikon concerning your camera. You can send it to them, they will estimate it, and may repair it for free if it is the ccd problem.

It sounds like you have settings set improperly.

Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera - SB flashing and cannot take picture


Not to buy a Nikon Coolpix anymore.
This is a very bad camera. I had this same error last year. The camera was sent to Japan once, returned to me and worked for six months.
Now is the same problem: SB light in red doesn't let me take pictures in light conditions when flash is needed.
So, you'd better think in buying a camera, not Nikon, please.
