Question about Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera

LCD and viewfinder malfunction

I've had my 5700 for approx. 5 years (or more) and had not used it for the past two years in favor of a nice little compact. Last week I turned it on, took a picture or two, then the image in the LCD and viewfinder seemed to 'melt', becoming a striated blur of darks and lights. I turned it off and on again -- each time the image remains for about 5 seconds then 'melts'. Tried changing battery, no difference. The camera still takes photos but obviously I can't see what I'm doing. Help please!
Thanks very much...
Jackie

    I have exactly the same problem with my 5700 and so does my son. Nothing I tried has fixed it. With my camera the fault is intermittent. My son's is permanent. Hope someone can help. I love(d) this camera

    I've had my 5700 for approx. 5 years and had not used it for
    the past two years in favor of a nice little compact. Last week I
    turned it on, took a picture but the image in the LCD and
    viewfinder was black. Menu operates ok and even show old taked photos, but no image of new subjects to shot in the screen.

    Yes there is a service advisory and they will fix it as a goodwill repair no charge if you have 1) distorted image 2) off tint image 3) black image. I just got mine back today from Nikon. They replaced a defective CCD unit. It appears that not only Nikon is affected. The CCD's were all made by the same company so it affected many makes and models.

I had the same problem 2 years ago and came upon the service advisory when researching for a solution. I sent the camera to Nikon and they fixed it for free in about 2 weeks.

There is a documented malfunction with this camera, and Nikon has issued a service advisory and form you can send in with the camera so they fix it. Click on the following link, send in the camera with the form, and Nikon should fix it for free (assuming the problem is the one documented by Nikon) . I had to do it about a year ago, and the same thing just happened with my brother's camera.

Hi,

Apparently the vendor-supplied CCD image sensor used in this Canon digital camera may cause the following malfunction: When the product is used in recording or playback mode, the LCD screen and/or electronic viewfinder may exhibit either a distorted image or no image at all.

To determine if the CCD (image sensor) is working properly, follow these steps:

1. Insert a memory card with known good images on it into the camera.

2. Power the camera on to the Playback mode.

3. Press the DISPLAY (DISP) button to enable the LCD panel, and observe
the LCD.

a. If the images are displayed properly, please proceed to step
four.

b. If the images are not displayed, or a "NO IMAGES" message
appears, please ensure that the memory card contains known good images.

c. If the card contains known good images, and the issue persists
with a second memory card, the camera will require service.

4. Switch the camera to the Camera mode. You may use any shooting mode
(i.e. Auto, Manual).

5. Press the DISPLAY (DISP) button to enable the LCD panel.

6. Point the camera at a well-lit scene and observe the LCD and/or
viewfinder. If the scene the camera is pointed at appears on the LCD
and/or viewfinder, the CCD is operating properly. If the LCD and/or
viewfinder remain black, the camera requires service.

Effective immediately, and regardless of warranty status, Canon will
repair, free of charge, products exhibiting the above-mentioned
malfunction if the malfunction is caused by the CCD image sensor. Canon will also cover the cost of shipping and handling in connection with this repair.



Regards.

No image in viewfinder or on lcd screen


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!

Re: nikon 5700 faulty flash


I've had this problem and Nikon repaired it twice for me at about Aus$200 each time.

Recently it happened again.

Quite by accident, I found that I could lift the black on-off main switch and that it comes off the camera body quite easily together with the chrome shutter button.

Inside was a little plastic tab with contact points.

Merely blowing off the dust inside and then replacing the shutter button and on-off black ring appear to have solved the problem for me.

However, my viewfinder and lcd were working normally and not black as  lsvettek said.

I did have a problem with the viewfinder and lcd on yet another occasion and this was a recognised fault which Nikon repaired free of charge.

Is there any difference in the live image between the viewfinder and LCD monitor?


DiMAGE Z3 does not employ the Switch Finder that was employed in the Z2. Frame rate is 50 fps in both models, and smooth real motion monitor can be obtained. Specifications are as follows: Viewfinder : 0.3 inch, approx. 11.8 million pixels LCD monitor : 1.5 inch, approx. 7.8 million pixels
