Question about Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Unable to take a picture

Hi
I am unable to take a picture when I am in the default mode (AF) of the camera. However, when I am in the menue mode the shutter is openning and so the camera is taking the picture. When I am in the manu mode, the LCD shows only the menu. In which case, I don't know hat picture I am taking!!

I love this Nikon 5700 camera but I am upset because it is not working!!!

Looking for any good suggestion to solve the problem

Sincerely
Raj

I would make sure the battery is good and then I would try resetting the camera to default settings and try again. Kinda like a re-boot of your PC. Also check lens and battery contacts to see if all that is clean and straight.
If all else fails Nikon has a good repair center and it is probably worth repairing. I am a happy Nikon owner!

I don't think it is something you did wrong. What you can do is go into menu, and clear "All camera settings". This will set it back to default mode. Then try to see what does on af on lense. See if will work on mf mode as well.

Unable to actually see the photo in progress in the lcd!


I suppose you are referring to EOS XSi.
Hit the menu button
Go to the fifth menu, and choose the "Live View function settings"
On "Live Viwe shoot." select "Enable" option"
Go back to shooting modes.
The option works only with non automatic modes.
Hit the "SET" button each time you want to see the current picture in the screen, instead through the viewfinder.
Set to MF on the lens switch "AF-MF"

Please let me now if it works.

Cannot select "camera menu" from the Top Menu


If the camera is in Auto mode those items cannot be selected because the camera is already using factory default settings and they cannot be changed, If you press the Ok button and change to P mode then you will be able to access all of those menu settings and make any changes you wish to the camera settings.

Unable to use AF on close up shots.


maybe you are too near the subject, try another lens( assumed you've done that). Or try this: remove the lens and clean very carefully the mirror inside the opening of your camera, back to back, use clean cotton or eyeglass cleaning textiles, clean also the small holes with lens that looks likes small marbles.

Noise during video recording


Turn off Continuous AF (auto focus) to prevent recording camera noise during video capture. When you turn off Continuous AF, you may notice a narrower area of focus or depth of field, especially if you zoomed to a telephoto position before recording. Turn the Mode dial to Video, then press the Menu button. Highlight the Continuous AF menu, then press the OK button. Highlight Off, then press the OK button. (On is the default.) Press the Menu button to turn off the menu screen. This setting remains until you change it, change the Mode dial, or turn off the camera.
