In Auto mode it keeps come automatically when the power is on. .If you select other modes (i.e; P,A,M ) it does not but you need to pop it up manually. it stays as locked unless you do it manually.
If this does not help and If you need more info pls provide more details for additional solution..

I bought a used Nikon coolpix 5700, worked fine for awhile, but now when I turn the camera on and press the release button the flash will not pop up or work, in the view screen the "SB" shows in the view...


You don't state whether this happens all of the time or only when the flash is active.

If only when active, then the user manual for your camera states that this indicates the flash on your camera is charging and that if you remove your finger from the shutter button it should clear (p.168). In practice it should also clear with the flash is in the retracted position and the flash function is turned off. If it's due to an actual fault then it can be caused if the capacitor or the thyristor charging circuitry has failed. If so it's uneconomical to repair.

If this is the case, then the cheapest and quickest fix will be to disable the pop up flash in the menu (user manual p.95, Set Up 2 > Speedlight Options > Pop Up > Off) and to then use an external flash unit. This also has the advantage of giving you a far more powerful and better quality flash unit.

If the error message occurs whether the flash is retracted or not, then there's a fault with a tiny button switch which senses when the flash has popped up. As your camera is about eight years old now this will be completely impractical to repair and you can only hope that the camera will ignore it if you disable the internal flash as indicated above.

I hope that you have found my answer to be of use; please remember to take a moment to rate my answer.

Nikon E5700 flash on camera sticks open


If the pop-up flash does not stay in place, it could be possible that you got its locking mechanism damaged. Only a service personnel can confirm this.

Flash pops up, but flash closed warning stays


My E5700 did this a couple of times. The fix for my flash was that the unit wasn't actually popping all the way open. I closed it, then manually poppped open the flash and gave it a gentle upward tug. The flash seemed to lock into position -- and has worked fine since. I hope your fix is as simple as with my E5700.

I hope this helps!

Re: nikon 5700 faulty flash


It appears that you have a ccd problem.
That particular model had a ccd problem, whether or not the flash is part of it, I do not know.
Here is the link to FREE REPAIR if the problem is the ccd.

I have sent some Nikons in for repair, and they have been fixed free. The shipping will cost you to send in.

Pop-up flash


Go to the menu RESET ALL may work. Then go back to the menu and set the settings to the way you want them, test the camera and see if the flash works.
Make sure that the flash settings are on and not turned off in the menu settings.

If the flash is on in the settings and it still does not work, then this camera needs repairs.

My camera will not take a picture unless lock button is held


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?

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.

The red dot beside SB means that the flash is not ready. If the flash does not pop-up, I would say something is jamming it -- and not allowing the flash to pop-up. If the flash does pop-up, but the red dot stays on, there is a problem with the flash. The simplest might be a battery that is almost dead. The flash has to "charge" before it will fire. I have to admit, you would notice this rather quickly as the camera would power down within a few shots -- even if the flash didn't fire.

Check the pop-up flash position and get back to me. I hope this helps! Please post rating, if it does.
