Question about Nikon Coolpix 5600 Digital Camera

Af and flash button flash continuously when camera switched on

Hi - I can turn my camera on but the lens does nort come out and both the af and flash lights by the viewfinder flash continuously. None of the buttons work and the screen does not light up. I have only taken 500 pictures with this and find it hard to believe taht this is not a trivial fault. £140 to repair is a joke! I have replaced batteries with fresh.

    Thanks Jackboy - working direct with Nikon proved to be much cheaper than going through the shop where I purchased the camera - all in hand now. Nikon direct charge between £25 and £50 for complete repairs.

How old is the camera? Take a new approach to Nikon. But costs are about right- it is no joke.

My Nikon Nikkor 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S for Digital SLR lens does not seem to auto focus well. Sometimes the lens will focus and unfocus and refocus constinely. Is this normal??

You did not say which camera body you are using, but you probably have three different auto-focus modes on you camera. You might be using the wrong one.

The modes are as follows:
AF-A Mode: Camera automatically selects single-servo autofocus when AF-A subject is stationary, continuous-servo autofocus when subject is moving. Shutter can only be released if camera is able to focus. AF-S Mode: For stationary subjects. Focus locks when shutter-release button AF-S is pressed halfway. Shutter can only be released when in-focus indicator is displayed.
AF-C Mode: For moving subjects. Camera focuses continuously while AF-C shutter-release button is pressed halfway. Photographs can be taken even when in-focus indicator is not displayed.

Cannot fire shutter on d80

Hi, Have you cleaned the lens' electrical contacts?or is the lens connected loosely?? Examine but probably little need to clean the camera's electric contacts considering its' young age. Do you have access to another AF body on which you can test the lens and another AF lens to test the D80? Do the following things 1.take a dust free eraser and clean the contacts on the camera carefully by keeping it upside down to prevent dust going inside. the same for lens contacts. re-attach the lens firmly. hope this solves your probs. regards sreejith

My D80 suddenly stopped taking photos while I was in Auto mode. I noticed the flash stopped releasing. I've changed lenses, reset the camera's green buttons, switched out the card, reset the clock. It...

Hi, Also, try a factory reset found on page 129 of the manual. On the left side of the camera is the terminal cover, inside below the USB connector is the reset switch. If that does not work call Nikon digital 1-800-645-6689.

I can't get the flash to come on. what do i do?

Switch the photo mode selector knob on top around to P. Then press the little black button on the body behind the AF/MF button on the lens. Flash will pop up and work then (don't forget to switch the camera on before doing this stuff). All of the above takes the camera out of auto mode (the square green box on the selector), so you can tell the flash you want it. It will work in the other manual modes as well of course. Good Luck

My nikon d70 wont focus at all

  • Make sure both lens and body are set for autofocus. There are two switches near each other with "AF" and "M" settings.
  • Check the camera's focusing settings, or do a factory reset (from menu) to 'start over'. Usually helps to have AF-Assist on.
  • Try setting the AE/AF-lock button (upper rear, near right thumb when holding camera) to turn on AF. The camera may respond better to this than half-pressing the shutter release.
  • Make sure the lens is fully attached to the camera. You shouldn't be able to rotate the lens without depressing the lens release button, and you should be able see a tight seal between the two.

make sure the lens is properly connected and aligned, if it has been remove recently it may not of been put completely back to the right position causing the contacts to not align. Turn off the camera and remove and then remount the lens. The motors and the cost to replace/repair are almost as much as a new lens. Your lens can and should last a long time unless it has recently been dropped or tried on a camera (forced) the wrong way and the contacts were bent or damaged.

Nikon D80 display panel F--

The lens ought to be fully functional in every mode. But if you are in a pinch then Manual it is 'til you can get it sorted or serviced if need which case you'll need to swithch the AF Mode lever (under lens release button )from 'AF' to 'M'. Have you cleaned the lens' electrical contacts? Examine but probably little need to clean the camera's electric contacts considering its' young age. Do you have access to another AF body on which you can test the lens and another AF lens to test the D80?
Please keep in mind that if the aperture is not set (locked) at its minimum, the error is a flashing fEE. When the body cannot communicate with the CPU in the lens, the error is F--, which means either the lens has no CPU or a bad electronic contact.

Hi taylorrm, I don't know if you have a solution to this but sometimes the AE-L/AF-L but gets pushed which is the auto focus lock button then the shutter release button cannot be used to focus and yu have to reset by pressing it again.  Even though it's confusing at first it's a feature along with the AE/AF Lock to try out to lock your focal area on a subject prior to shooting.
To sbhoward5, check to make sure the switch on the camera body is switched to AF instead of M mode(looking at the front it's on the lower right hand side below the lens release button), which sometimes happens when changing the lens - so then the mode selected is in P,S,A, or M modes on the mode dial. happy shooting,
