Question about Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera

Camera Keeps shutting off

Recently when I use my camera (Nikon coolpix 500) I noticed that within a min. or so after i take a few shuts off and then comes back on. I checked the auto shutoff time and it is set to shut off at 5 minuted. I also put a new battery in it so thats not the reason. When I used it today, it did it again. It will shut off after i take a couple of pictures. I did however noticed that once I start useing it indoors it did this once or twice and then stopped doing this. It was cold outside (20Degrees) however this shouldn't matter. I have used it outdoors before when it was cold and never had this problem. Any ideas why it is doing this would be very helpful.

Re: Camera Keeps shutting off

Have you changed the battery/batteries for another brand? I'm wondering if various brands react differently to extreme temperatures? Probably not the problem with your camera, just thought it might be worth a try!

My Nikon l100 shuts off as soon as you take a picture. When you power it back the picture is not there.

check that the battery is good,,,it may have the guts to power the camera but may not have the power to run the storing and saveing side,, so it shuts down the camera.

Nikon coolpix 2100 camera won't stay on

I've been having problems with the batteries and the camera refusing to start even with fresh batteries. I bought loads of new rechargable batteries and have finally found some that work. Duracell rechargables. Theyr'e brilliant and keep their charge for ages despite continuous use of the camera! Last summer I managed to take 975 photos before the batteries finally decided to give up!

Coolpix 775 camera does not shut off. Probably the shut off button is not operating

This could be a main-board problem The fact the lens operates indicated that mechanism is OK So what to do- Check Nikon support - will it be repaired at reasonable cost or will you simply bin it- who knows

LCD blank & No picture taken

This appears to be a well known CCD problem, which Nikon acknowledges only for the COOLPIX 3100, 5700 and SQ models. Nikon denies the CCD problems on the 5400 are related, even though a Google search for this problem returns numerous results which claim the same defective Sony CCD sensor was used in the 5400 as was used in the 3100, 5700, and SQ models.

Nikon Coolpix 775 autos off within 10 seconds

This is either due to one of two problems.

I will start with the simple 1 first.

Go to the menu settings, and select the "S" page, at the bottom is selection for AutoOff, check the settings for this. I would suggest 1 min being about average for most users.

Come out of the menu settings, and leave the camera for 1 min it should auto power down in about that time give or take a few seconds.

If this works then that is the problem solved.

The more complex issue is, that if you camera still is affected by short auto shut downs, then you need to buy a new battery. I paid about £5 for one of ebay, so they are available.

Hope this helps
