    I'm also having problems with the flashing red dot and "SB". The camera will not take a shot while this is happening. According to the manual this means the speed light is recharging, but this happens for every shot, even though the pictures don't require the flash! The only solution I've found to the problem is to manually turn off the flash. I've checked all my user settings, and they don't appear to be the problem.

    I have the same problem and tried your suggestion which was to turn off the flash.  However, still looking for a solution to the problem.

My flash isn't working on my Coolpix 5700. I'm


Hi.

From what I have heard Nikon has recalled the Coolpix 5700 because of the SB error. It has something to do with a connector coming away from the printed circuit board. I recommend that you get in touch with Nikon and see if they will repair the flash for you. Click on the link below to contact them.

My shutter release button doesn't work or takes very long and my external autofocus flash doesn't work?


Have you by chance got it wet, salt water? Have it checked by a reputable repair shop, and if it has gotten salt into it, best look for a new unit!

Grit destroys these cameras, get a good dust proof case or bag and avoid sand, water, and dust.

Flashing SB warning light when trying to take picture


Does the flash pop up? If not, try to pull it up manually. Look at your settings in the menu, maybe reset them.

When shutter depressed "AF" and "SB" LED's flash


My camera's shutter will not depress all the way due to a red flash light coming up all the time in the Flash-Ready indicator lamp (refer to pag 28 in the Nikon manual). It can be full sun outside but it will not work due to the red flash light coming on.

A work around is to select a flash mode of 'cancel'.
There is a button toward the front of your camera called the flash mode button. Click that until you see strike mark on the flash icon of your monitor screen (see page 32 in the Nikon manual).

The camera must have a malfunction of determining the lighting so it always thinks you need to have a flash on the picture. Of course this is not 'fixing' the flash/lighting issue but you can take typical day pictures for now with this work around.

Re: nikon 5700 faulty flash


It appears that you have a ccd problem.
That particular model had a ccd problem, whether or not the flash is part of it, I do not know.
Here is the link to FREE REPAIR if the problem is the ccd.

I have sent some Nikons in for repair, and they have been fixed free. The shipping will cost you to send in.

Re: nikon 5700 faulty flash


I've had this problem and Nikon repaired it twice for me at about Aus$200 each time.

Recently it happened again.

Quite by accident, I found that I could lift the black on-off main switch and that it comes off the camera body quite easily together with the chrome shutter button.

Inside was a little plastic tab with contact points.

Merely blowing off the dust inside and then replacing the shutter button and on-off black ring appear to have solved the problem for me.

However, my viewfinder and lcd were working normally and not black as  lsvettek said.

I did have a problem with the viewfinder and lcd on yet another occasion and this was a recognised fault which Nikon repaired free of charge.

Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera - SB flashing and cannot take picture


Not to buy a Nikon Coolpix anymore.
This is a very bad camera. I had this same error last year. The camera was sent to Japan once, returned to me and worked for six months.
Now is the same problem: SB light in red doesn't let me take pictures in light conditions when flash is needed.
So, you'd better think in buying a camera, not Nikon, please.

If it is almost new the thing to do is to reurn it to the vendor . Check out the situation with Nikon customer support.
