Re: Rainbow colours down the screen

My 5700 was more than 3 years old when I had this problem. Nikon repaired it for a nominal fee!! Good luck!

Re: 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.

I think you're in for a repair that could be expensive.

Check Nikon tech support at and see what they advise. I don't think abuse such as dropping the camera is covered under the warranty but Nikon may be able to suggest something that might help you avoid having to send the camera in for repair.

D70s I shoot raw. Thumbnail picture on LCD is ok. when downloaded to computer have picture is perfect other half out of focus and look like ribbon or rainbow?

When you are using the raw format, you are also taking a jpeg basic photo. The camera display on;y show the jpeg. Most windows programs only show jpg also. In order to view the raw files, you must use s/w capable, such as Photoshop or the s/w that came with the Nikon (Picture View, I think/ Compare both jpg and raw files. If they both exhibit the same anomoly, than more than likely you have a dirty or bad CCD sensor.

Live Monitor is not working

You guessed it right. I also think there can be a firmware(software) failure. You can try a Factory reset option of your camera. If that doesn't work, I don't think you should do any more experiments since its a very delicate and sensitive and EXPENSIVE instrument. Please take it to the qualified technician in that case.

Please rate me appropriately if you are satisfied with my answer,in case, if you want any clarification please get back to me.
