After turning camera on, there are only two displays on LCD. One is battery level indicator. The other is (.1 (.2 (.3 (.R. Rotating the command dial cycles through these. Also, the shutter release won't take a picture. If I push in the lock button on left side of camera, I can then take a picture. This problem was initially intermittent but now happens all the time. I have checked the firmware (as suggested by a Guru in February for someone with the same problem) but I already have v1.1 which is the latest download available. Thanks for your help

Re: Nikon Coolpix 5700 malfunction
It sounds like the Function (FUNC) button is stuck. Actually, that's
what is supposed to happen if you press the FUNC and then turn the
wheel... but it's not supposed to stay that way after the FUNC button is released. Try tapping the FUNC button to see if it releases.

There is a documented malfunction with this camera, and Nikon has issued a service advisory and form you can send in with the camera so they fix it. Click on the following link, send in the camera with the form, and Nikon should fix it for free (assuming the problem is the one documented by Nikon) . I had to do it about a year ago, and the same thing just happened with my brother's camera.
If you see some text or icons on the LCD but no live shot, the LCD is good but most likely your CCD sensor is out. This is a manufacturer defect and will be covered free by Nikon even if it is out of it's original warranty. Go here for the Nikon link: http://www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.html
Look in the user manual.It should say something about that if not call tech assistance at 1-800-nikonus. Oh by the way there is a user manual here for ya if you need one in the tech specs of the camera. simple click on the nikon COOLPLEX 5700 DIGITAL AND IT WILL TAKE YOU TO A TECH PAGE WHERE YOU SCROLL DOWN TO FIND IT. Good Luck
Having a "System Error" message display on the camera's LCD display generally indicates a problem where the camera will need to come to Nikon for repair. A System Error is a general error which can be caused by many things: lens problem, CF Card problem, general camera failure, etc. Before sending the camera in, check these:
Use the memory card that originally came with the camera (or a Nikon approved card)
Remove and replace the battery
If the error is still displayed, contact Nikon's Service Department. If the above tips do not help the camera must be sent to Nikon Service, there are no user serviceable parts on Nikon Coolpix cameras.
