Question about Nikon COOLPIX 5100 Digital Camera

1 Answer

P5100 Nikon Hi, I have a Nikon Coolpix 5100 camera. When reviewing the pictures, there are white visible lines across. When going to take the picture, it's clear, there are no white lines, only when reveiwing the pictures. Even when pictures are uploaded, the pictures are not clear, the white lines are visible. Thank you!!

    I have exactly the same problem. A regular pattern of horizontal white lines are registered across an otherwise perfect photo. Videos are not affected at all. This tells me it is a problem with the sensor plate inside the camera and not with the lens.



    What I tried: It does not help to try and resove the issue by changing battery or memory card; it is also not an issue of cold or hot weather. I had the same problem with a Canon camera and Canon immediately diagnosed that the sensor plate is the issue (but they were not trying to dodge their guarantee!)



    It is really a bad reflection on Nikon that their agent in Dubai, Grand Stores (where I bought the camera and it is still under guarantee) has technicians who are apparently clueless about this problem and they are trying their very best to get out of the guarantee! They want to fix the lens?!

I have the same problem as you... Nikon acknowledges that they have this problem on other Coolpix models, see: http://home.nikon-asia.com/pagearticle.php?pageid=43-7cc915b40d

Now, how do we get Nikon to acknowledge that this is a problem on the 5100 as well?

Recently, I have been experiencing trouble with my Nikon Coolpix P2. When I take photos, the picture comes out with faint white lines across them. The screen itself is fine, but once I press the shutter,...


Hello - from what you said - it sounds more like a sensor problem in the camera.
If the screen looks OK while sizing up a picture , then 'click' Image is stored on sensor which is read as one LARGE matrix of dots and stored into memory.
If the white lines start at this point - ie. viewing the picture while in camera and then after download.
Then, the problem started at the sensor.
I just did a (www.goggle.co.uk) and did a search for problems - and NONE apart from Wi-Fi connections to Windows7 -- all reviews were great.
I would connect Nikon to see what they recommend . -- Ray

Nikon coolpix camera has lines


Hi,

You no need to fix this problem. This is a CCD failure and in some cases had been subject to a recall. Contact Nikon support-this may be one of the recalls and replacement camera could be on its way. They will do it for free of cost.

Thank you !!

When you take a picture it has black line across it


seems like this is a banding problem. Nikon has issued a service advisory on some of their Coolpix models including the 5700. So they will fix this issue free of cost. This is an issue with the sensor. Please contact the nearest authorized service center.

Nikon Coolpix P5100 settings


Olympus cameras have an "all reset" function that can be toggled on or off in the menu. If "on", all settings are restored to default on boot up, if "off" then the last setting are kept on boot up. If the settings are supposed to be kept be design,but are not, then the capacitor or small battery on the main board needs to be replaced. Not user replaceable, usually soldered on or socketed but no simple access.
