Question about Nikon Coolpix 5600 Digital Camera

Black and white lines in view finder

When I turn my camera on and look through the view finder, I see nothing but black with white lines moving horizontally. It looks almost like an old television when you were trying to tune in a channel. :o) TIA, Tee

    Originally I posted this problem to the coolpix 5600 thread. I have a coolpix 5700 and have been advised by Nikon that it is under the advisory service and a problem that Nikon will fix at no cost.

    Thanks jackboy. If Nikon does not repair it, as promised, at no charge, I will not pay to have it repaired. The camera is two years old.

    When i look through the view finder it has horizontal lines. When I take the picture it has lines across it also.

Screen or main board failure. If it is still under warranty you may have a chance bit if over a year or so old - not worth considering for repair- though you could try. take a look through the file here http://www.fixya.com/support/p423-nikon_coolpix_5600_digital_camera/solutions

White Screen. When I turn my camera on, it has power but, the display is white and you cannot see anything through the view finder.


hi,
did you check the picture through the view finder ? if it is clear, then there may be snag in the monitor, normally the connecting cable to the motherboard become break, if so should replace it.
if the picture is visible when you turn the monitor to either side, then you can confirm the fault of the cable.

Does it work at all with out the view finder? If it does work completely then you can use the camera without the view finder. Point and shoot and the more you use it the better you get at it. Good Luck

You should go into the menu, camera settings and set the evf to on. EVF stands for electronic view finder. This can be set to be on when the lcd is open or closed. CAreful, if the evf is set to on and you point the viewfinder towards the sun, it will burn white marks into the viewfinder and ruin it.

I have a power shot sd400 digital elph, when you turn it on the view finder just shows white with black lines and spots.can this be fixed


Depends on the age- If it is under warranty then send back to the vendor or maker.
If out of warranty - then no - insofar a likely repair charge if possible will cost nearly as much as new camera

View finder blurry/black - images blurry with rainbow horizontal lines


This is a result of Sony CCD recall issue - working with Sony for repair.

Gr-dvx7 jvc lcd screen is just white?


If the view finder shows the same white display. You probably have display circuit problem in the camera. Faulty CCD chip usually shows Black screen so it probably board problem or a connector problem. If you see an image through view finder then you may have defective connection from board to LCD assy. Either way it need to be looked at by a trained technician. Good luck.
