Question about Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera
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....
