Re: no image on the scree

If you can play back images and they can be seen on the LCD monitor, then the problem is the CCD sensor ( see image below to get an idea what I am talking about ).Nikon fixes this problem  free of charge so that is good news for you. But if there is no image in playback mode then it might be the LCD monitor.Unfortunately this will not be repaired free of charge if your camera is out of warranty.ba67e42.jpg

Camera was dropped and the View screen shows no image. There is an image that looks like shattered glass.

Can you still take pictures using the view finder? if yes! the rest of the camera is functional. The view screen can be replaced making the camera fully functional, but if the camera has other issues it needs to be assessed.

Focus problem. Coolpix 5000 mounted on Nikon microsocope for photographing tissue slides. Perfect digital images for years; now 90% poorly focused. Image viewed through microscope in perfect focus, image...

If you are initiating the shutter manually, it is quite possible that the camera has become very slightly loose at the F-mount. So, when you press the shutter button, the movement though it may be extremely slight, is shaking the camera at the exact moment you are taking the picture.
Make sure that the camera is tight to the F mount and that the F mount is secure to the microscope.

If you are initiating exposure via software, it is still possible that there is still some slight movement on your desk.
Remember, the slightest movement is magnified many, many times to the camera.

Nikon E5700 digital camara. Camara turns on, everything looks good, shutter opens but only see black through the view finder, monitor and will only take black pictures. I reset camera to factory...

There is a service advisory out for Nikon E5700.

t has come to our attention that in a limited number of COOLPIX 3100, 3500, 4500, 5000, 5400, 5700 and SQ digital cameras, an electronic component may, in some instances, fail affecting your camera's performance and/or operability.

While only a limited number of COOLPIX 3100, 3500, 4500, 5000, 5400, 5700 and SQ digital cameras are affected by this advisory, if your camera presents symptoms that can include (1) images with a strong color tint, (2) images that are totally black and/or (3) images with visible defects, Nikon will, upon confirmation that the problem is associated to this Service Advisory, service your camera free of charge.

if the resulting images are the same, you have damaged the camera settings/controllers. see how they look on your computer.
if only the display on the camera is damaged, you should consider asking for a flat rate repair. most makers offer a price for major and minor repairs, and never charge beyond that.
good luck

On the screen I take it. But get a print or view images in computer to check how far this goes. It will need to go back to Nikon for a fix though.

CoolPix 5700's have a common image sensor failure. Check with Nikon for recalls, this may be the cause of your issue. Alternatively the shutter may be stuck open, causing too much light to reach the sensor and causing over exposure as well as lines across the image. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
