Question about Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Won't Take Pictures

When I turn the camera on, the lens extends and everything seems normal, but it won't do anything. The LCD screen or the Viewfinder only show a black screen with all the display settings. There is no image of what the lens should be "seeing." If I hold down the shutter release button, SB and a flashing RED circle appear. In addition, there is a constant flashing symbol--a white circle with hands like 9:00 and a white dot at number 3 on a clock face.

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct it. 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:

Hi There, If your screen still lights up, sounds like the LCD Panel is cracked.

Cannon G7 need help


Hi
Had the same problem a few months ago.There was a high pitchedwhisltle and I think the screen said "lens fault.turn off camera" or something similar.Bought a G9 to replace as the 7 was out of guarantee but sent the 9 back to the e-bay reseller as it was obviously secondhand with grit around the lens ring and the viewfinder.Ebay never again!.So 3 months ago ago I tried the G7 again with a fresh charged battery before I consigned the camera to the loft.I noticed that each time i switched on the whistle and message was there but the lens extended slightly further each timeso I kept rebooting until the lens was fully extended.Turned the camera off and on again and everything was back to normal.It seems that this may be Canons protocol when a camera goes back.Its been absolutely fine until today.It wont boot up at all.I have tried 2 fresh charged batteries and its dead.Any ideas anyone?
