There can be so many things you changed. The Nikon camera, can be set to TTL, DTL and several manual settings for the optional speed light. Then you can switch the flash off, so It would be very difficult to see what went on in your camera. Try making a picture with the camera in full automatic. (green camera logo on the main dial) If that works, go into the menu and check the settings. (use the manual.)
Bruce, Try these steps: 1. Set camera to manual2. Set shutter to 1/60 3. Set aperture to F5.6 4. ASA/ISO 200 5. 550EX on hotshoe 6. Do not set on slave or master 7. Turn on flash
Display must shows, ETTL. If that doesn't work, you have to use the flash on manual. Some of this model will not work fully on ATG Canon EOS-1D C, ATG Canon EOS-1D X IR, Canon EOS-1D X/60D/T4i because this flash is over 20 years old.
Unless you would want it to be modified by me. But that can be costly when you can get the 580EX II for less than $425.00 USD.
Check for the battery contacts inside the battery compartment. If you see them rusted, clean them gently with alcohol. Do not scrape with any sharp objects. Make sure the contacts are clean and reinsert the batteries. Get back if it is still dead.
I haven't heard of this problem but compliments of velocityreviews I came up with this.
Follow the instructions below to attach an external Speedlight. Refer to your Speedlight manual for detailed instructions regarding Speedlight operation.
1 Make sure that both the camera and the external Speedlight are
2 Attach the Speedlight to the camera accessory shoe.
3 Turn both the camera and the Speedlight on.
4 Set the external Speedlight zoom head to an angle wider than
28 mm. If you are using a Speedlight with Auto Power Zoom, set the zoom head angle manually. The COOLPIX5700 does not support power zoom.
5 Set the external Speedlight flash mode to TTL.
At this setting, the amount of light produced by the external Speedlight is measured by the camera?s photocell, and the flash shooting range adjusted automatically to ensure optimal exposure. D-TTL flash control
(available with the SB-80DX, SB-50DX and SB-28DX) is not supported.
6 Take the picture
If the Speedlight Options: Speedlight Control option in the SET-UP
menu is set to Auto, only the external Speedlight will fire. If this option is set to Int & Ext Active then the external Speedlight and the builtin Speedlight will fire at the same time.
The COOLPIX5700 does not support AF-assist illumination, or red-eye
reduction using the red-eye reduction lamp on the external Speedlight.
At a setting of STBY (standby), the Speedlight will turn on automatically whenever the camera turns on but will not turn off automatically when the camera turns off.
Exact functionality varies with the Speedlight in use. Refer to your Speedlight manual for details.
I hope it's of some help
