Question about Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera

Washed out photos with lines running through them

The images my camera just started taking are faded out with "noise" lines running through them. At first I thought it may be the compact flash card, so I swaped out the card and the same thing is happening. It looks like someone covered the photo with a piece of vellum paper. You can see the image through the snow but there is definetly something wrong. Any suggestions? fix or buy a new camera?

Re: washed out photos with lines running through them

Same thing happened to my Coolpix. I called, got through immediately, described the problem and was given instructions on where to mail my camera. I was told it would be fixed and returned to me. THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!!! We were actually looking at new cameras!

I have a 636 auto focus Polaroid camera that I want to use at my daughter's wedding. I have long ago lost the instructions. Can you please tell me what the two little arrows on the front of the...

If you're asking about the one directly below the lens with a light arrow pointing right and a dark arrow pointing left, then you're referring to the lighten/darken control.

If images seem too dark, slide the control to the right, and if images are washed out or too bright slide the control to the left. It's very much a trial and error control in that you judge what's needed by the next photo you take.

One other point: the pictures you intend to take will be irreplaceable, so it's vital for you to understand that remaining stocks of original Poloaroid film are all so long out of date now that the built-in batteries are either totally dead or will allow maybe one or two shots before dying. When the battery dies, the photos cannot be used, and Polaroid packs have never been cheap. Old stocks may also have stale photo chemicals so pictures may not develop properly or may have odd colour casts. Refrigerated photo packs might have good chemicals but you only have the vendor's word that they were kept cold and they will have flat batteries as cold kills batteries. Vendors will also not usually guarantee the material to be usable, and when they do the guarantee is just for the cost of the material, not the lost images. You can use photo packs with flat batteries but need to adapt the camera to accept a stable external 4.5v dc power supply, such as an external battery. Even with an adapted camera, you will always be taking pot-luck on the results using original Polaroid photo packs.

Alternatively, you can get new photo packs via The Impossible Project. It's vital to realise though that it's NOT the same as the original material. The dyes are different for starters, and you only get 8 shots per pack rather than 10. It's also nowhere near as robust or fade-resistant, so once you get your images it's essential to scan them if you wish to preserve them as the originals will rapidly fade. The website for the product will tell you far more as will the user forum. It's really a specialist medium which is more suited to artists than for archival memory preservation such as you intend.

Good luck with the wedding, I hope that you get to have fun with your camera, but make sure to run a photo pack through it before the big day to check it's fully functional and also ensure that any important photos are also taken with a conventional film or digital camera.

I hope that my reply has been of use, if so then please spare a moment to rate my answer.

Whenever i on the camera some sound is coming while taking pictures only,it is not coming when iam looking the snaps after that

Camera noise can be common during autofocus, image stabilization, and of course pressing the shutter release. It seems possible that the noises you noticed are part of normal the normal photo taking process, since you only hear them when taking a photo, not when reviewing photos (a process which doesn't use autofocus, image stabilization or the shutter release).

If you're not experiencing any problems taking photos, the sound may just be part of normal camera operation. However, if you're still concerned, I recommend you take your camera to your local camera store to have an expert listen to the sounds.

If the menus and icons look normal, but images are distorted or discolored, you may have an image sensor (CCD) problem. See Canon's service notice regarding this issue here. Canon will repair your camera at no cost regardless of warranty. Contact them at your regional Canon service agency.

The following has only just started happening - Still images are captured in a very grainy and washed way. Where as captured video footage is fine. Please help.

The Canon A95 has been known for taking noisy and grainy photos. Try using a low ISO setting of 50 or 100 to see if that helps. Using auto ISO or ISO above 100 will put more noise/grain in your photos. Also, always shoot in the best lighting situation possible. The more light the better. You can always improve your photos with good editing software too.
I hope this helps and good luck!

FinePix F470 Lines on images and faded colors on photo mode.

You have over exposed pictures due to the shutter sticking.
The video is the clue to the problem. It doesn't use the shutter.
Shutter needs to be cleaned. This is no easy task im afraid

White streaks on all photos but not video

Your camera has a defective CCD imager. Please return the camera prepaid to Canon in New Jersey, they are replacing the CCD at no charge to the customer. This is a known issue and is resolved by many of the manufacturers using the Sony CCD element in their cameras at no charge. Good Luck my friend. Joe Weibel
