Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct your problem. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them: And here's a video summary of the steps:
Thank you every one who posted solutions.
I was all set to try the 9 volt trick until i realised i didnt have one so i tried someone else's suggestion of constantly re-inserting the battery until the red light stays constant. Touch wood, but it seems to have worked.
that error code indicates the the Lens of teh camera is already defective., In most cases if the lens is stuckout or stuckin camera will not stay On or It will not Turn On at all. For this case you need to call Tech support to send you camera for repair toll free 1 800 235 6325 extension 12
when you charged the battery, did the light stay red, and then turn green when it was finished?
if it flashed red, try this:
MATERIALS: 9 volt battery, 2 pieces of wire the same length, casio battery
connect the + sides of each battery with a wire, and the - sides of
each battery with another wire. [I just held them there, but maybe you
can tape them if you're having trouble.] Hold it for 30 seconds. Then
try charging it. If it doesn't work keep trying it until it does. TRUST
ME! It took me 5 times to do it effectively.
If your battery has gone too long without charging, sometimes it won't charge correctly any more. So do this.. IDK why it works, but it did for me!
I haven't heard of this problem but compliments of velocityreviews I came up with this.
Follow the instructions below to attach an external Speedlight. Refer to your Speedlight manual for detailed instructions regarding Speedlight operation.
1 Make sure that both the camera and the external Speedlight are
2 Attach the Speedlight to the camera accessory shoe.
3 Turn both the camera and the Speedlight on.
4 Set the external Speedlight zoom head to an angle wider than
28 mm. If you are using a Speedlight with Auto Power Zoom, set the zoom head angle manually. The COOLPIX5700 does not support power zoom.
5 Set the external Speedlight flash mode to TTL.
At this setting, the amount of light produced by the external Speedlight is measured by the camera?s photocell, and the flash shooting range adjusted automatically to ensure optimal exposure. D-TTL flash control
(available with the SB-80DX, SB-50DX and SB-28DX) is not supported.
6 Take the picture
If the Speedlight Options: Speedlight Control option in the SET-UP
menu is set to Auto, only the external Speedlight will fire. If this option is set to Int & Ext Active then the external Speedlight and the builtin Speedlight will fire at the same time.
The COOLPIX5700 does not support AF-assist illumination, or red-eye
reduction using the red-eye reduction lamp on the external Speedlight.
At a setting of STBY (standby), the Speedlight will turn on automatically whenever the camera turns on but will not turn off automatically when the camera turns off.
Exact functionality varies with the Speedlight in use. Refer to your Speedlight manual for details.
I hope it's of some help
