Question about Nikon Coolpix 8700 Digital Camera
I only can shoot a picture after pressing the AE-AF lock button. On the control panel only the batteries energy level and the shooting mode are displayed. I fail to change the original release button function and the full control panel display. I tried to restore to factory settings and reinstalled the latest firmware.
It is likely that these observations are linked.
I would appreciate any assistance.
Same problem that would not allow me to take a picture without pressing
the LOCK button on my Nikon 8700. Here is how I believe I fixed the
Turn the camera ON.
Press MENU button on your camera to bring up the menu.
Scroll down to SET-UP, open the SET-UP menu by scrolling right.
In the SET-UP menu, scroll all the way down to FUNC (Controls) on page 2/3 , open the FUNC (Controls) menu by scrolling right.
You are now presented with 2 options:FUNC and AE-L, AF-L)
Select the FUNC option by right scrolling.
Choose the 2nd option: i.e the mountain, flower and timer icon (distance, macro and self-timer icon) by right scrolling.
Press the MENU button to get out of the menu.
Attempt to take a picture without pressing LOCK.
Should work! Anyways, it worked for me.

Brilliant - thanks very much - worked a treat.
I'm glad I did not sent it back to Nikon, who would no doubt have made a hefty charge to look at it.
