Re: Monitor

Td48: Have you tried pulling up the menu? Rotate the dial on the top of your camera to the setup tab while your camera is charged and tell me if you get anything on the display. if you do but the camera takes black pictures then you may be experiencing the same issue many others are and there is an official Nikon service bulletin.

Go to:
and check out solution #3. This will direct you to Nikon support should your issue be what is described in that thread.

NIkon cool pix 5400 will not turn on. Battery is fully charged.

A couple of possibilities. The battery is bad and not accepting a charge. Replace the battery. The battery terminals are dirty. Using cotton swab and some isopropyl alcohol, clean then fully dry the metal contacts on the battery and inside the battery compartment. Before turning it back on, be sure everything is fully dry.

My Nikon Cool Pix L810 is brand new. Placed batteries in camera (that it came with) and it would not turn on after pushing on/off button. Replaced batteries with a new set and my camera still will not

I suggest you return the camera to the shop where you bought the camera for a replacement or warranty repair. If you try to fix it yourself you may void your warranty.

My nikon 5400 scenic menu does not work. I cannot choose from its menu.

using the Monitor options you can control the quality of the preview displayed in the monitor, the conditions

under which the monitor will turn on automatically,and monitor brightness and hue.

be sure the monitor is on.the scene mode won't work unless you have the monitor on.

hope this helps.

Are you sure it's really turning off? My camera goes into a "sleep" or power down mode....a slight pressure on the shutter button wakes it up and it's ready to shoot.

The monitor is blank and camera will not zoom.

Try to reset the camera. That worked on mine.

LCD blank & No picture taken

This appears to be a well known CCD problem, which Nikon acknowledges only for the COOLPIX 3100, 5700 and SQ models. Nikon denies the CCD problems on the 5400 are related, even though a Google search for this problem returns numerous results which claim the same defective Sony CCD sensor was used in the 5400 as was used in the 3100, 5700, and SQ models.

Blur on LCD and on pictures taken

Sorry to tell you this but your CCD is gone. In a fwe days time pics will be black in color. CP 5400 uses a batch of defective Sony CCD's. Nikon's service center in Kolkata, India replaced the CCD in my CP 5400 free of cost. This was because Nikon has issued a service advisory. Try your luck with the Nikon service center closest to your home!
