Hi, I am from Malaysia and this is the first time I post in this forum. I have a similar problem with my CP5700 - ccd problem after reading the various postings in this forum. I sent it to Nikon service center in Malaysia requesting for a free repair although Nikon Malaysia does not post such an Advisory concerning this faulty ccd. They came back advising that the fault is not ccd problem but a faulty main pcb and quotated a repair cost of US$250. They diagnosed the fault to be caused by the CF pin dented area in the camera. I challenged their finding whereby I sent a copy of the bad pic affected by the faulty ccd for reference. A reply came admitting the ccd problem but they insisted I paid for the main pcb replacement reason being replacing the image sensor alone will not help the camera to function fully. I am in a dilemma as paying $250 for repair is as good as getting a new camera. Hope someone here can provide the answers to my questions below in order for me to pursue the matter further with Nikom. 1) Does repairing the faulty ccd as per the advisory includes replacing the main pcb of the camera? 2) Is it possible for the dented pin to cause such a severe damage to the main pcb thereby requiring a replacement instead of just repairing the dented pin?
Thanks for your help.
Nikon will replaced or fix your ccd problem no charge but in my case I was told they must fix anything else they first find wrong ! (to bring it back to its 100% state ) , My case a hair line crack on the monitor casing and some sand in the lens , so $160 later My problem will be fixed . with a 6 month warenty , but if I'm lucky I can bid under this price and get another one from E Bay .

The Nikon CoolPix 5700 can support up to 1 GB CF type memory cards, but only of a certain brand. Nikon maintains a list of approved cards - those brands and capacities that have been tested to work 100%. Other cards may work too - but no further testing of memory cards is being done with this model camera.
Your camera uses CF type I or II cards. Since it was first introduced in 2002 I believe it has no support for 4GB cards. But since it's a 5MB camera, you can get some 500 frames on one 2GB card. Just need to pack some more of those for a photo-safari.
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.
Hi there all
My Nikon coolpix 5700 camera was the same way. We were told that there is a recall on this cameras because of this problem. Go to the website listed below and follow through with the directions. We sent ours in about 3-4 weeks ago and just got it back today in excellent working conditions again. I hope this helps, Good Luck!
