Ok. there is a button on the side of the lens. it has an eyeball and a bolt of lightning, press that button and look in the top right corner of the screen. keep on pressing this button until you see; a lightning bolt with a circle with a line threw it. then "click". if that doesn't work switch your camera to manual and try this again.

My Nikon 8700 will not take any pictures..when I turn it on a message comes on the screen that "speedlight is in the closed position". When trying to take a picture, it buzzes,and an orange light flashes...


Please try resetting the camera to factory defaults first, but it sounds as though it may be a mechanical problem with the flash linkage. You can also use the flash selection on the side
of the lens housing and select "No Flash" to see if the camera will take pictures then. Since you have an attachment for an external flash, that might be an avenue to help you still use your camera. Getting it repaired would be expensive.

HI, I have nikon L110 and when i click pictures without flash in portrait mode and auto mode it takes long time to display on screen after clicking the pictures .. but when i use flash it comes quickly ....


It takes the same amount of time after the picture is taken for it to appear on the screen. Without flash there's less light and the camera requires more time to collect enough light and take the picture.

Flash doesn't work on nikon coolpix l12


I actually just fooled around with mine because it was doing the same thing. It will only flash in the scene mode, but not the normal quickshot mode. i noticed under the camera symbol on the screen said BSS and i went into the menu and clicked on BSS and turned it off b/c it was on and that worked finally.maybe u can try it, if its the same situation.

Problem with nikon coolpix 8700


Same problem that would not allow me to take a picture without pressing the LOCK button on my Nikon 8700. Here is how I believe I fixed the problem:

Turn the camera ON.

Press MENU button on your camera to bring up the menu.

Scroll down to SET-UP, open the SET-UP menu by scrolling right.

In the SET-UP menu, scroll all the way down to FUNC (Controls) on page 2/3 , open the FUNC (Controls) menu by scrolling right.

You are now presented with 2 options:FUNC and AE-L, AF-L)

Select the FUNC option by right scrolling.

Choose the 2nd option: i.e the mountain, flower and timer icon (distance, macro and self-timer icon) by right scrolling.

Press the MENU button to get out of the menu.

Attempt to take a picture without pressing LOCK.

Should work! Anyways, it worked for me.

Cheers.

Flash problem with my Nikon Coolpix 8700


Send the camera in to Nikon for a replacement and write a nasty letter. I have the same problem and that's what I did. This is a wide-spread problem. Then once they send you a replacement (that works), quickly sell it on E-bay and buy yourself something that works!

Horizontal lines on image


This is not a solution , but only a work around. If you do at least 1/3 zoom on your lens before clicking a photo, these lines will not appear. But this not not a convenient way I agree.
Also this surely means that the CCD is not the problem otherwise it would have never worked ( electronic parts cant simply dont start to work when you zoom ringht ? ). Surely Nikon is fixing the issue, but cheating the customers by charging for a part is not defective in the first place
