    hi.



    No i not get any menus at all.

    The lcd is off, backlight off.

    All other functions are 100% ok. All ready opened the camera and all the connections are ok. But the lcd doesn´t work at all.



    I have read the service manual and find out that is a fuse that control the backlight, dont know if thats the cause.



    If you can help .... i like very, very much this camera

    regards

  • nightshade61 Apr 30, 2008

    can you be more precise?



    there is a fuse for the back light in power board the fuse is f5.

    that fuse you say i dont now. can you give me a more precise ideia, or send a email with the location?

  • nightshade61 Apr 30, 2008

    i have the service manual. the f5 is on the power pcb. i think you say that the fuse that talk about where in the main board near to the connector CN500, that is the LCD connection on main board.



    i will try to by pass f5 when i arrive home.

    i´ll be back to post the results by the seven o´clock.

    Have you tried a new back light or LCD from a used camera?

    swap out the black light they are very small solder joints. But that should fix it the lcd and backlight seporate.

Coolpix 4300 needs driver & update for vista


You can download PictureProject software from this address: http://chsv-soft.nikon-image.com/jpn/software/win/S-P2____-175WU-JPNJP.exe

That is the only Nikon software that supports Vista since your camera is "outdated".

Here is a quote from Nikon site:

  • We had released a Windows Vista-compatible version of PictureProject, v1.7.5, for use with the models listed below, and all models that followed. PTP (models supporting the PTP protocol) and Mass storage USB transfer options can be used for camera connection. However, the camera's transfer button can not be used to transfer pictures over a PTP connection. Set the USB transfer option to Mass storage to enable the camera's transfer button.
    Currently, the new Nikon Transfer and View NX will replace Picture Project as our new Image Transfer and Browser applications. These applications support the same Nikon products as Picture Project.
COOLPIX P4, COOLPIX P3, COOLPIX P2, COOLPIX P1,COOLPIX S10, COOLPIX S9, COOLPIX S8, COOLPIX S7c, COOLPIX S7, COOLPIX S6, COOLPIX S5, COOLPIX S4, COOLPIX S3, COOLPIX S2, COOLPIX S1,COOLPIX L6, COOLPIX L5, COOLPIX L4, COOLPIX L3, COOLPIX L2, COOLPIX L1/L101,COOLPIX SQ, COOLPIX 8800, COOLPIX 8700, COOLPIX 8400, COOLPIX 7900, COOLPIX 7600,COOLPIX 5900, COOLPIX 5700, COOLPIX 5600, COOLPIX 5400, COOLPIX 5200, (COOLPIX 5100), COOLPIX 5000, COOLPIX 4800, (COOLPIX 4600), COOLPIX 4500, COOLPIX 4300, COOLPIX 4200, COOLPIX 4100, COOLPIX 3700, COOLPIX 3500, COOLPIX 3200, COOLPIX 3100, COOLPIX 2500, COOLPIX 2200, COOLPIX 2100, COOLPIX 2000,COOLPIX 995, COOLPIX 885, COOLPIX 775.We do not plan to offer compatibility for COOLPIX 990 OR COOLPIX 880 connection to a computer with Windows Vista preinstalled. Use a card reader or card slot to transfer images.

Nikon E5700 digital camara. Camara turns on, everything looks good, shutter opens but only see black through the view finder, monitor and will only take black pictures. I reset camera to factory...


There is a service advisory out for Nikon E5700.

t has come to our attention that in a limited number of COOLPIX 3100, 3500, 4500, 5000, 5400, 5700 and SQ digital cameras, an electronic component may, in some instances, fail affecting your camera's performance and/or operability.

While only a limited number of COOLPIX 3100, 3500, 4500, 5000, 5400, 5700 and SQ digital cameras are affected by this advisory, if your camera presents symptoms that can include (1) images with a strong color tint, (2) images that are totally black and/or (3) images with visible defects, Nikon will, upon confirmation that the problem is associated to this Service Advisory, service your camera free of charge.

No image on the scree


If you can play back images and they can be seen on the LCD monitor, then the problem is the CCD sensor ( see image below to get an idea what I am talking about ).Nikon fixes this problem  free of charge so that is good news for you. But if there is no image in playback mode then it might be the LCD monitor.Unfortunately this will not be repaired free of charge if your camera is out of warranty.ba67e42.jpg

LCD blank & No picture taken


This appears to be a well known CCD problem, which Nikon acknowledges only for the COOLPIX 3100, 5700 and SQ models. Nikon denies the CCD problems on the 5400 are related, even though a Google search for this problem returns numerous results which claim the same defective Sony CCD sensor was used in the 5400 as was used in the 3100, 5700, and SQ models.
