Question about Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera
My 4 year old Nikon Coolpix 5700 that has been very very well taken care of has 2 oddities that are driving me insane.
1) I can't take a picture unless a) I hold the "lock" button on the side of the camera OR b) if I have the menu being displayed onscreen at the time I am shooting
2) The round dial button that navigates menus or moves the picture up and down when viewing it in zoom on lcd sreen.... will not work when pressing it in the "up" direction. Left, right, down, all work but not up. I have to press the down button all the way thru all menus to cycale back around from the beginning if I miss a menu choice
Please someone have this answer!!!???
Had this problem two weeks ago. On the road to recovery, changing the purpose of the function button seems to have helped me - <Menu>, <Set-up1>, <Controls>, <Func.> Change chosen option away from the top one (User Setting). I found the third one down with the flash symbol least confusing. Then <Set> and <Menu> button to escape from the menus.
Having done all this the camera will take pictures again without pressing the lock button. However, I'm not convinced the func. button works as described in the manual. Hope this helps?
