Question about Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera
Put in a new battery and compact flash card and still get Lens Error. Where can i send it to be repaired or is it worth it?
This is a fairly common problem with Nikon E5700 cameras. Sometimes, the problem is nothing more than the lens tried to extend, but bound on something and errored out. Removing the battery for a few minutes usually clears the problem. If it doesn't, you might GENTLY push on the lens -- like pushing it back into the camera body -- with the power OFF.
If that doesn't clear it up, you'll have to decide whether or not repair is worth it. I've seen the E5700 selling for around $300 on several websites. I paid $1200 for mine when it first hit the market. So, depreciation has set in. Nikon does a good job in repair and turn-around -- and they are not outrageously expensive. I had my E5700 serviced and back in 7 calendar days a couple years ago. They cleaned EVERYTHING -- and it's worked like a charm since then. Best wishes with the fix!
I hope this helps!
