Same problem that would not allow me to take a picture without pressing the LOCK button on my Nikon 8700. Here is how I believe I fixed the problem:

Turn the camera ON.

Press MENU button on your camera to bring up the menu.

Scroll down to SET-UP, open the SET-UP menu by scrolling right.

In the SET-UP menu, scroll all the way down to FUNC (Controls) on page 2/3 , open the FUNC (Controls) menu by scrolling right.

You are now presented with 2 options:FUNC and AE-L, AF-L)

Select the FUNC option by right scrolling.

Choose the 2nd option: i.e the mountain, flower and timer icon (distance, macro and self-timer icon) by right scrolling.

Press the MENU button to get out of the menu.

Attempt to take a picture without pressing LOCK.

Should work! Anyways, it worked for me.

Cheers.

When I connect my Nikon Coolpix 8700 to my Windows XP Pro, Windows does not detect the camera.


Having gone a month without a response, I assume using a card reader solved the problem.

ok. there is a button on the side of the lens. it has an eyeball and a bolt of lightning, press that button and look in the top right corner of the screen. keep on pressing this button until you see; a lightning bolt with a circle with a line threw it. then "click". if that doesn't work switch your camera to manual and try this again.
