Question about Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera

4 Answers

Lines in image

After the first few shots which are fine, the image all of a sudden breaks down into a series lines instead of solid image -- as if someone had installed a screen over the top of the image. The image is barely distinguishable. I've switched cards, thinking that was the problem. Any suggestions?

Lines in image: My camera is two years old and started doing it earlier this month also! I tried the suggested fix above but it didn't work. In "continuous mode" (either hi or lo) the camera works fine, as well as in movie mode. Its only in the single shot mode do the lines appear and a blue tint covers the photo. I will look forward to seeing if its the "ccd".

I just had the same problem and I followed these steps and it got fixed !! : 1. Put the camera into movie mode, then record something short. 2. Play it back in play mode. 3. Put it high frame rate continious mode. 4. View it back. 5. Put it slow frame rate continious mode. 6. View it back 7. Put it back to single shot mode. 8. Now camera is back to normal. I think there is a software bug in the firmware. Because it takes normal pictures in high frame rate/continious modes. After a little playing around it gets back to normal. Too bad I couldn't discover this while I'm on vacation, I thought it was broken again... Hope this helps. E.

The same thing happened to me yesterday. Mine is three years old. If you find out anything about the source of the problem, please post it here. I will send my camera for technical evaluation. The funny thing is, If I use it in video mode, then the image is fine. However, in photo mode it is exactly as you described it....

    right here is the latest from bomberos. my camera as i already staTed was faulty. i returnened it to my local nikon authorised repair agenT in the uk. they were already authorised to repair cameras with this fault free of charge by nikon. the fault lies within a chip called a CCD. this is affected by high heat and humidity and because it was manufactured with epoxy it has broke down.The chip was manufactured by sony and lots of products are affected. therfore first port of call is your local AUTHORISED DEALER. be aware that certain people are trying to buy these so called broken cameras cheaply and then getting them repaird free of charge to sell on. before you do anything visit a few problem forums and you will see how widespread this problem is. My camera which I picked up from the repairers yesterday is fine and it was REPAIRED FREE OF CHARGE the fault can be of many different images from lines to total distortion.Your camera does not have to be under guarantee for them to fix it as the chips were made between 2002 and 2004

The clue is with the video.
The video function does not use the shutter. Lines on photo's or over exposure is due to the shutter not closing completely over the lens when you take a picture.
It will require cleaning which means opening up your camera and accessing the lens unit

Original NES image problems


Courtesy of Nintendo Repair Shop, try this site out I heard they are pretty reliable. Sounds to me like a new connector is in order for your NES. They tend to go after a while and the connections get worn out. Here is the link:

White lines through image after picture taken


I was having the same problem a while back with my camera.

I chatted with someone from Sony online support, and after following their prescribed steps, the whole deal just got worse.

The lines got bolder, and instead of just being bands of light, they're now a dark, solid grey. They told me to send it in for repair, but seeing as I don't have my receipt, that's not really an option.

But apparently that's all that can be done about it.
