Re: static on screen instead of image
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. http://www.nikonusa.com/email_images/nikonusa/service_advisory/coolpix.html

NOISY PICTURES One of the major
difference between a consumer digital camera and a digital Single Lens
(DSLR) is that the former produces images with a lot of noise when
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
example, instead of a blue sky, you notice faint pink, purple and
speckles amongst the otherwise blue sky. read AT http://www.photoxels.com/tutorial_noise.html
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.
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.
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.
