Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera Problem

Stripes appear across the viewing screen after I snap the shot. The files also contain stripes across making them almost illegible. I have uploaded a file for your review. My email address is pauln@advancerepro.com. Thanks so much for your help.

I believe this is the issue that Nikon is repairing at their expense. You can find the advisory on the Nikon website. Here is some of the text from that advisory:

It has come to our attention that in a limited number of COOLPIX 3100, 3500, 4500, 5000, 5400, 5700 and SQ digital cameras, an electronic component may, in some instances, fail affecting your camera's performance and/or operability.

While only a limited number of COOLPIX 3100, 3500, 4500, 5000, 5400, 5700 and SQ digital cameras are affected by this advisory, if your camera presents symptoms that can include (1) images with a strong color tint, (2) images that are totally black and/or (3) images with visible defects, Nikon will, upon confirmation that the problem is associated to this Service Advisory, service your camera free of charge.

To obtain complimentary service for cameras affected by this advisory, please click the link below to download and print the Service Return Form. The Service Return Form provides detailed return instructions.

The Frequently Asked Questions button at the bottom of this page offers more information about this advisory and, should you have more questions, also provides information about how to contact Nikon.

We apologize for any inconvenience you may experience.

BTW, I sent my E5700 to Nikon a couple of years ago -- for this same problem. They repaired and cleaned my camera -- and had it back in my hands within 7 days.

I hope this helps!
Regards,

Why vertical color stripes Olympus my 840


Hi, if the stripes are only on playback on the LCD screen, your screen if failing...if the lines appear when your memory card is played back on your computer, then the problem is related to your sensor. Most likely it is the screen. The repair on this is more than likely more than the value of the camera. (as a sidebar...try tapping your camera LIGHTLY on a table, if the problem gets better or worse, something is loose inside your camera!)

Stripes across viewing screen


almost sure this is cause by flex circuit in the zoon lens that is damaged and need to be replaced. Almost always the problem of stripes in the picture is worst when you take pictures in full zoom mode because in this position of the lens the flex circuitis is fully streched. Thats all folks

When you take a picture it has black line across it


seems like this is a banding problem. Nikon has issued a service advisory on some of their Coolpix models including the 5700. So they will fix this issue free of cost. This is an issue with the sensor. Please contact the nearest authorized service center.
