Question about Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Horizontal White Lines blanking out pics

Have just tried to use this camera after a couple of months of using another instead, and do not know what I'm doing wrong! I'm getting these lines both on the monitor and also when I download the pics from the card. Never had a minute's bother with it in the past. Always use it on Auto.

    With this problem is that the taking screen is often almost whited out and in "odinary' lighting stuations the meter is readind something silly like 1/400th of a sec @ f8

    any ideas what may be wrong with it - could it be a corruption within the circiuts? firmware -

    thanking you

I had the same issue with mine recently.  Fortunately it is a problem that Nikon has had with a lot of their cameras and they are fixing them for free.  I just got mine back from Nikon and it works perfectly now.  Go to

Horizontal lines (red) on first 1 - 2 pages of initial print-out

Do you refill ink tank? Print blank pages. Is there horizontal lines appear? It might be caused bay ink leakage. Check respiratory hole at ink tank and rubber seal at bottom of ink tank. Print blank pages until no horizontal lines and try to use new ink tank.

Horizontal lines and blurred pics.---- when seen in scren pics are clear but as soon as u click it either becomes blurred or shows horizontal lines. sometimes i find blank. i wud like to know the reason...

It's a lens shutter problem. There are usually two causes - a broken shutter cable (it moves inside the lens as you zoom - as the lens move) or stuck shutter blades - if wet or something adhesive got in. If the shutter doesn't work, the camera cannot control the amount of light taken, so the pictures if taken in normal or bright conditions are very bright and have horizontal lines. I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a repair. Both problems are considered hard to repair and could end up with changing of the shutter or lens. It should be an expensive repair so I would just get another camera.

Sorry for the bad news, but I hope it will help you!

Casio Exilim s500--horizontal lines in picture and autofocus creates blurry pics

It appears this problem is due a failing CCD device in many brand cameras. All the manufactures use the same source(s). I have not persued Casio as yet, but other companies are offering a recall to replace the CCD for free. I plan to use this approach with Casio. Search the web for "failing CCD in digital camera", it describes exactly what we are observing.

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

White horizontal lines on display.

Cameras dont like drop tests! Check if you are getting the same results on the images- printed or viewed on the computer screen. This will prove whether is is a LCD error or CCD error or Processor error But the remedy will be that same New Camera
