Question about Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera
Viewfinder and lcd screen have no recognizable image, just a smear of colors.
This is a very common problem which affected millions of cameras manufactured using Sony's 5MP CCD. The symptoms you describe are absolutely classic but to confirm it try viewing older shots taken before the problem arose using your camera's LCD: they should display as normal.
Contact Sony in your country: they have been offering free repairs for this problem, my 2004 Sony DSC-V1 was repaired under the scheme last summer.
When you get your camera back, be on the lookout in the few months afterwards for what look like water droplets on every picture. These indicate a faulty repair where the technician has got something on the CCD and Sony won't accept responsibility for further remedial work after a certain mount of time. I found out the hard way when I noticed this second fault last month but Sony said I'd left it too long before notifying them!
