Question about Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera

Command Dial Malfunction?

I followed the manual for our Nikon Coolpix 5700 on changing your ISO setting (press ISO/Flash button + Command Dial) but could not do so. I have tried User Setting's 1-3, and still had the same problem. This is the same problem when changing aperture settings. Is there something I missed?

Re: Command Dial Malfunction?

I guess ther may be - Fuji Tech Support is the best place to find out. There are so many variables in the makes/models of camera only the makers tech support will tell you unless one of us knows the exact camera.

Nikon coolpix p500 flash not working

If you put the camera in Auto (the camera logo on the mail dial), pop p the flash, by pressing the button on the side of the flash, then the flash should fire, when you have a dark situation. Unless you selected flesh off in the settings menu. Look on page 37 of the manual.

My flash stopped working on my nikon coolpix L110..

The Nikon Coolpix is a compact digital camera that is well-suited for amateur to semi-professional photographers. Occasionally, some issues with the built-in flash can occur. If the hardware is damaged, the camera must be taken in for repairs. More often, problems occur because of obstructions or issues with the camera's settings and are easily repairable. Follow the troubleshooting guide to fix the built-in flash.

1.Ensure the Nikon Coolpix digital camera battery is fully charged.
2.Wait several seconds before pressing the shutter-release button if the "Flash Ready" indicator light is flashing red. Press the "Flash Mode" button once or twice to change the flash settings from "Off" to "On" or "Auto" if the "Flash Ready" indicator light is off.
3.Ensure there are no obstructions, like your finger or the camera strap, that are preventing the flash from firing if an error message appears on the display screen and the flash is not firing when the flash mode is set to automatic.
4.Press the flash back into the camera after every photo to ensure the flash always fires in "Auto" mode instead of just in low illumination settings. Press the flash back into the camera to turn off the flash in "Manual" mode; otherwise the flash will continually fire.
5.Change the auto focus setting from "Infinity" to "Auto," "Macro Closeup" or "Self-Timer" by pressing the "Focus Mode" button once, twice or three times to automatically turn the flash back on.
6.Use only Nikon external flash accessories to avoid damage to the built-in flash and camera circuits.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

How do I turn on the Rear Command Dial in my Nikon D80 Digital Camera?

That depends on what you want the command dial to do. If you're in either the Manual (M) or Shutter Priority (S) modes, the command dial will change the shutter speed. If you're in the Program (P) mode, the command dial will shift the program exposure. If you're in any other exposure mode, the command dial does nothing.

If you hold down the metering mode button, the command dial will change the exposure metering mode.
If you hold down the exposure compensation button, the command dial will change the amount of the exposure compensation.

If you hold down the release mode button, the command dial will change the release mode.

If you hold down the AF button, the command dial will change the autofocus mode.

If you hold down the QUAL button, the command dial will change the image storage mode.

If you hold down the ISO button, the command dial will change the ISO.

If you hold down the WB button, the command dial will change the white balance setting.

If you're looking at the menus, the command dial will navigate the menu.

If you're reviewing pictures, the command dial will move to the previous or next picture.

Hope this helps. If you still have problems or other questions about this, please don't hesitate to reply to this post.

On a Nikon D-50. How do you change the iso setting? I don't have the manual.

If the monitor is off, sensitivity can be set by pressing
the (ISO) button and rotating the command
dial until the desired value is displayed in the control

Here is a link to the complete manual if that doesn't help:

Nikon Coolpix 5700 malfunction

It sounds like the Function (FUNC) button is stuck. Actually, that's what is supposed to happen if you press the FUNC and then turn the wheel... but it's not supposed to stay that way after the FUNC button is released. Try tapping the FUNC button to see if it releases.

Dark Picture

I am assuming the following two things.

1. The part was indoors.
2. You are using the 18-135 mm lens with the Nikon D80.

The problem with shooting indoors is that not enough light goes in through the lens to the filter. Solutions:

1. Use the flash with every shot. In case there is not flashlight available, use the on board flash. Press the top button behind the barrel on the camera. It has a lighting icon. It will pop open the flash. If you are in 'P', 'A', 'S' mode, the camera will sync the shutter speed with flash. If the camera is on auto mode (The green camera icon) the flash will pop up and fire by itself.

2. Use the lens with with lowest f stop, i.e. with bigger aperture.

3. Increase ISO. You ought to get usable photographs right up to 800. To change ISO, press the button on the back of the camera which says 'ISO' (Second button from bottom) and turn the primary command dial simultaneously to change ISO setting. Higher ISO speed = Lower shutter speed (But less clarity too).

Hope it helps.

My camera will not take a picture unless lock button is held

Had this problem two weeks ago. On the road to recovery, changing the purpose of the function button seems to have helped me - <Menu>, <Set-up1>, <Controls>, <Func.> Change chosen option away from the top one (User Setting). I found the third one down with the flash symbol least confusing. Then <Set> and <Menu> button to escape from the menus.

Having done all this the camera will take pictures again without pressing the lock button. However, I'm not convinced the func. button works as described in the manual. Hope this helps?

Flash pops up but does not flash

Turning the Flash Off and On: 1. With the camera in any user set, repeatedly press the Flash/ISO button on the lens barrel until the flash cancel icon (a lightning bolt in a circle with a slash through it) is displayed on the control panel and screen. 2. When finished, to return to the default setting, press the Flash/ISO button until AUTO and the lightning bolt icon are displayed on the control panel and no flash icon is displayed on the screen. If it still doesnt help: 1. Check that batteries are fresh. 2. Check that camera hasn't been set for no-flash mode. 3. Give the flash time to charge before pressing shutter.
