Question about Nikon Coolpix 5600 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Cannot take more than one pix w/o having to turn camera off.

My nikon takes great pixs. however after I take 1 pix a little red light flashes and AF appears on sctreen. then camera will not take another pix unless I shut camera off andrestart it. Same procedure repeats itself.

What could be the problem? I find it frustrating as "I love my camera and miss being able to use it when needed.

Thank you.........Tia

The focus motor could be dirty. Replace the lens, or take it apart and blow it out. Parts are usually available at online auction houses or the manufactures web site.

Try switching to Shutter Prority (S) with a fast shutter speed.If the light is not so good, up the iso to 800 to gain that faster shutter speed..

You do not say the lens in use ? if VR, make sure its switched on or use a tripod.

Hope this helps

Nikon SC-29 REMOTE CORD


Hi Kathy,

Are you ready?

1. Make sure the Nikon SC-29's Red Panel's Lock Switch is set to the Left. Pointing at Left Black Screw.
2. Connect the Nikon SC-29's (Red Panel) to your camera's Hotshoe by pushing it as far as it goes.
3. Turn Lock Switch to the Right (turn CW). This locks down to camera.
4. Make sure Nikon SC-29 (other ends) AF-ILL is set to OFF.
5. Make sure your Nikon SB-800's Lock Switch is set to the left side.
6. Attach your Nikon SB-800 into this Hotshoe.
7. Switch the Lock Switch on flash to the right.
8. When you wants to AF from flash, set AF-ILL to "OFF"
9. For the best results, set AF-ILL to "ON".

I teaches, do repairs, services and modifications on all photographic equipments.

I hope they are helpful to you as well as for any Nikon Photographers using the Nikon SC-29 Cable.

Flashing square, pix # and 2 underscores


According to the manual this looks like the batteries died during rewind. You'll need to replace them or recharge them, then power the camera back on and re-initiate the film rewind process

You can find a link to the manual at this address:

Nixon cool pix 8.0mp


I believe that means the range is from 4 seconds exposure to 1/1000 second exposure time, and does not refer to the number of flashes.
Some cameras will flash several times before the main flash while taking a picture if it is set to red-eye reduction (because the first 3 flashes make the subject's pupils go smaller).
Under normal flash photography, there will be only one flash.
If you set the camera to automatic, it will do most ofthe work for you.
