Question about Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera

Static on screen instead of image

Anyone have a problem with the 5700 where the screen shows grey "static" instead of the object you're trying to take a picture of?

    I also have static on screen on my Coolpix 5700.

    It takes photos - of static.

    The problem started about 6 months ago - came and went.

    For a while it was OK - then back came the static.

    Now it is permanently static.

    Unless someone can suggest an easy fix, I guess I'll have to go to a camera repair shop.

Test the camera by turning it on, if the menus can be seen and no picture, then you may have a ccd problem, common with these cameras along with a list of others.

Grey spot on photo


NOISY PICTURES One of the major difference between a consumer digital camera and a digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) is that the former produces images with a lot of noise when using high ISOs and long exposure times, and the latter is practically noise-free (though high ISO performance varies depending on camera manufacturer and model). Noise is apparent by the presence of color speckles where there should be none. For example, instead of a blue sky, you notice faint pink, purple and other color speckles amongst the otherwise blue sky.

My images will not download to computer from Nikon coolpix 5700


If you are using the camera and a USB cord to download, try using a separate card reader instead. 40d3bea.jpg

Nikon approved CompactFlash memory cards up to 256MB in size for the 5700. The 5700 may be able to handle cards as large as 1GB, but I haven't tested this personally. When this camera was introduced in 2002, 256MB was a really big card. Many older cameras can't handle the 2GB, 4GB and larger cards we're seeing today.

Nikon coolpix 5700 shows no memory left after purchasing a new card & batteries


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 one of or all of the Nikon sites. other than that, get a card reader to read the cf cards directly into pc/image editor.

Bad news is that it is CCD sensor that seems faulty ( and only way to repair this fault is to replace the CCD block ) but the good news is that Nikon repairs this problem free of charge on this model even if your warranty has expired. Contact Nikon and have a new CCD sensor installed.

In camera mode, screen shows a blend of image and digital spectrum analyzer bars blurring the image


the ony way is to get the CCD replaced with a new one. Contact NIKON for free replacement as this comes under manufacturing defect.
