Question about Nikon Coolpix 5400 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Ccd sensor is not functioning -

The camera was purchesed by me in the U.S somr time in 2003/4. Since March this year I am unable to use it because I see pinkish, blurred images in the LCD screen. I was told that a particular batch of ccd sensors installed in Nikon cameras in 2003/5 are defective and the company has offered to replace them free of cost. Please let me know how I should go about it. I am based in Bangalore, India.

When i chage the option of oFF to CAMERA nothing turns on and when I change the option OFF to VCR the screen just show strange symbol and SP and it does not work


just so you know, your camera model was included in the list for what we call the "ccd program". this program has ran for 5 years and unfortunately ended march this year. sony gave free repairs for cameras and camcorders affected by the defective ccd imaging sensor before the said date. issue with the camera shows a black or distorted screen in camera mode. but the you should still be able to see the indicators on the screen. when switch to vcr you should be able to play back previous recordings that you made. better to really make sure its a ccd issue, play a tape that you're sure contains a movie recording and play it, then set it to camera mode and see if you get just a black screen. if you try recording using a tape, you may see nothing but should hear the audio part. if this is what's happening we can be sure it's a ccd issue. if your camcorder just won't turn on in camera mode, maybe the power switch turned defective or it can be other parts of the unit that stopped working.if this is the case, then of course, your unit may require service to address the problem.hope this info helps.thanks:)

Hi, when the camera is turned on the veiw finder & screen shows lines that change on where you point the camera whith a slight shadow of the shapes you look at !!! Thank you.


The ccd sensor has almost certainly failed. To confirm, see if menu displays show normally on top of the distorted image and also whether photos taken prior to the fault display correctly.

Your Nikon camera was fitted with the notorious 5MP ccd manufactured badly by Sony; huge numbers of them have failed prematurely and there was a program to offer free repairs to those who complained.

Unfortunately the scheme finished last September and only continues for a couple of Sony models until March 2010. Every other affected make and model is now considered to be beyond the original design lifespan. Yours may be up to almost eight years old now, so has likely far exceeded it's five year design life.

If you can find the CCD unit as a spare part, then repair is possible, but without the repair being free it's completely uneconomical.

Time to start shopping...

I need to send my camera in for repairs. view screen has gone out and setting dial worn down till you can't see the settings. Got suggestions?


Check out the Sony support website, there should be links there:
www.ita.sel.sony.com

If it's you're CCD sensor, it might qualify under this news bulletin;
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/news-item.pl?mdl=DSCF717&news_id=161

Sony had a certain issue with the CCD chip on this camera. If it's this issue, they'll fix it free plus $20 until March 2010.

Sounds like the CCD is damaged. Sony was fixing this problem free of charge but has since discontinued the free repair. If your camera was exposed to excessive heat, such as in a car during the summer, the CCD could be damaged from an iodine vapor within the camera itself.

Here's a website that has a few photos showing some distorted images from a bad CCD.

http://www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.html

The Sony websites that listed information regarding the free repair are no longer available.

I know this doesn't help your situation but if you can obtain a new CCD from Sony parts or similar, there's a YouTube video showing someone replacing one in under 10 minutes.

Fujifilm Finepix A310, unable to capture photos


Sir, You have used the camera since 2004 upto 2008. Now, you know that 4 year is enough time for a digital camera to run. The only solution is to throw it to dustbin & buy a new one. Otherwise, you may spend money in vain with your existing camera. Why?
