Question about Nikon Coolpix 5600 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera picture problem

I own a Nikon Coolpix 5700. We haven't used it in a few months and now we are only able to view old photos but when we try to take photos it shows as a blank screen with white 'tv type' lines running through OR the screen is three quarters black with a white horizontal stripe on the left hand side. The SB has a red light and the AF has a flashing green light so I am not sure if we have set this to default by accident. Can you offer some advice?

When you take a picture it has black line across it

seems like this is a banding problem. Nikon has issued a service advisory on some of their Coolpix models including the 5700. So they will fix this issue free of cost. This is an issue with the sensor. Please contact the nearest authorized service center.

No image through view finder or LCD

Here is the ccd advisory for the Nikon:

The Sony may have the same problem, Search on the Internet for key words:
Sony DSC717 ccd advisory. This camera was made in the time when the ccds had a problem (1999 to 2002).
You may want to call Sony for this one.
Sony made the ccds for many brands including Canon, Nikon and many others.

Blurry images on a Coolpix 5700?

This camera was in the time when the ccd had problems.
Call Nikon concerning your camera. You can send it to them, they will estimate it, and may repair it for free if it is the ccd problem.

Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera - SB flashing and cannot take picture

Not to buy a Nikon Coolpix anymore.
This is a very bad camera. I had this same error last year. The camera was sent to Japan once, returned to me and worked for six months.
Now is the same problem: SB light in red doesn't let me take pictures in light conditions when flash is needed.
So, you'd better think in buying a camera, not Nikon, please.

Rainbow colours down the screen

If the Photo is OK then it would appear to be a LCD fault. Checkout Nikon Customer support. At a guess if this more than 2 years old a new camera would be a more economic option.

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.
