Question about Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Re: nikon 5700 faulty flash

The flash won't fire on my nikon 5700, SB just blinks red. I sent it to Nikon UK to have it repaired since the lcd and viewfinder are black also. They quoted me £146.00 (around $300) just to have the flash fixed. I faxed over to them 11 pages (could have sent more!)of people on the internet having the same problem. I think Nikon should admit there is a problem with this model. Hi, I HAVE TWO NIKON COOLPIX 5700 CAMERAS AND BOTH HAVE THE SAME FLASH PROBLEM, THEY WON'T FLASH.BOTH CAMERAS HAVE BEEN REPAIRED FOR THIS FLASH PROBLEM BY NIKON, ONE WORKED FOR 2 MONTHS THEN WOULD NOT FLASH, THE OTHER ONE WORKED GOOD FOR FOUR MONTHS AND WOULD NOT FLASH. I DEFINITELY WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS CAMERA TO MY WORST ENEMY. THANK YOU.

    I too have two Nikon Coolpix 5700 cameras and both have developed th same problem - the flash doesn't operate and one of them now has a blank screen. The flash problem seems common and I have heard of other owners who have no screen view

It appears that you have a ccd problem.
That particular model had a ccd problem, whether or not the flash is part of it, I do not know.
Here is the link to FREE REPAIR if the problem is the ccd.

I have sent some Nikons in for repair, and they have been fixed free. The shipping will cost you to send in.

Red light display with SB


The flashing red light indicates that the camera's flash is charging.
Your electronic flash does not work on the low voltage supplied by the camera's battery. Instead, the battery is used to charge a capacitor(s) that are connected in a manner that raises the voltage to a level that will fire the flash. If the batteries are not adequately charged or the capacitor(s) are leaking, which will occur as they age, enough voltage will not be stored to allow the flash to fire.
Make sure your batteries are fully charged. Remember, rechargeable batteries do go bad after time and must periodically be replaced.
If the battery is fully charged and the red light continues to flash, the camera will need to be sent in for repair (probably replacement of the capacitor(s)). Call the Nikon Service Center at 1-800-645-6687 9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday, and they can arrange for you to have your camera evaluated and provide you with an estimate without cost. Your camera is rather old and it is possible that it might make more sense to replace it with a new model.

My flash isn't working on my Coolpix 5700. I'm


Hi.

From what I have heard Nikon has recalled the Coolpix 5700 because of the SB error. It has something to do with a connector coming away from the printed circuit board. I recommend that you get in touch with Nikon and see if they will repair the flash for you. Click on the link below to contact them.

From the Nikon site, do you have one of these flash units.
Support for the Nikon Creative Lighting System when using SB-900, SB-600, or SB-400 Speedlights, or the SU-800 Wireless Speedlight Commander
If so You set the flash mode to "comander" the pop up flash must be UP

This Video by Nikon shows how but you will have to read the manual to get a full description go to the flash section http://www.nikondigitutor.com/eng/d300s/index.html

Then look at them all :)

Re: nikon 5700 faulty flash


I've had this problem and Nikon repaired it twice for me at about Aus$200 each time.

Recently it happened again.

Quite by accident, I found that I could lift the black on-off main switch and that it comes off the camera body quite easily together with the chrome shutter button.

Inside was a little plastic tab with contact points.

Merely blowing off the dust inside and then replacing the shutter button and on-off black ring appear to have solved the problem for me.

However, my viewfinder and lcd were working normally and not black as  lsvettek said.

I did have a problem with the viewfinder and lcd on yet another occasion and this was a recognised fault which Nikon repaired free of charge.

Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera - SB flashing and cannot take picture


Not to buy a Nikon Coolpix anymore.
This is a very bad camera. I had this same error last year. The camera was sent to Japan once, returned to me and worked for six months.
Now is the same problem: SB light in red doesn't let me take pictures in light conditions when flash is needed.
So, you'd better think in buying a camera, not Nikon, please.

The red dot beside SB means that the flash is not ready. If the flash does not pop-up, I would say something is jamming it -- and not allowing the flash to pop-up. If the flash does pop-up, but the red dot stays on, there is a problem with the flash. The simplest might be a battery that is almost dead. The flash has to "charge" before it will fire. I have to admit, you would notice this rather quickly as the camera would power down within a few shots -- even if the flash didn't fire.

Check the pop-up flash position and get back to me. I hope this helps! Please post rating, if it does.
