I tried to reinstall the firmware in my coolpix 5700 because it would not go to the 'continuouse' setting in the menu but the battery died during the update so now the screen on top of the camera says 'boot' when i turn it on and the lens is stuck out. how can i install the firmware now ?

I'm convinced you already did read the user manual. There are three things you can reset:
1. User settings. In menu mode P, you can undo all the settings you made. Page 69.
2. Reset all settings. Page 151 Menu settings, chose the wrench symbol and chose reset all. All settings will be restored to factory settings.
3. Reset file numbering. Page 154 Menu settings, chose the wrench symbol and chose reset file numbering.
In the same menu is also the view firmware version. Yours should read Coolpix P90 Ver.X.X .
The latest update of firmware for the P90 is 1.1 Great chance your camera came with that revision already. If you registered your camera with Nikon, they will inform you when a new firmware is released.
Really, there is nothing more you can reset on the camera.
So if something is wrong, it can't be helped with the reset you have in mind, because that reset does not exist.
If you want the firmware 1.1, goto Nikon USA and support. Everything you want is there.
If you're referring to updating the firmware, the current version is 1.3 and is available from http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/13783 There are no other user-upgradable portions of the camera.
The movies are grainy because the camera has a small and old sensor, very susceptible to noise. I think you'll find the results a little better in well-lit situations, but please do not confuse the Coolpix with a camcorder.
Bear in mind that the 3100 is a relatively ancient camera. It may be time to consider replacing it with a more modern camera.
I had the same problem and just figured it out. Firstly, BSS won't work if NR is set to on. Turn it off and that should work.
Secondly, Continuous mode can not be shot in the RAW or HI image settings. Set the camera to one of the lower settings and give that a try. If that doesn't work, follow the instructions for updating to the latest firmware here:
The largest CompactFlash card that Nikon approved for the 5700 is 256MB, which is what I'm using in my 5700. That's small by today's standards and you probably won't even find it in stores. I see some web sellers have 256MB cards for only $6 or so. Other commercial card sellers on the web claim that the 5700 will handle CF cards up to 1GB capacity. That's what I might try since online they're selling for as little as $8 plus shipping. Given that the 5700 was introduced in 2002, any cards bigger than 1GB probably won't work.
Try checking your settings for the type of shot you are taking and for the type of focus...... type of shot is the dial on the top, and then: 1) menu, metering and also check your autofocus mode 2)menu, autofocus; try the single autofocus, it might be set to continual
Also, you could try updating the firmware in your camera. You do this through the Nikon website.
