Question about Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera
When camera is on & in picture mode all I can see through the viewfinder & LCD screen is a blank screen. The type of mode & flash symbols appear but no picture. If I take a picture & then view it all I get is a blank image. Any help will be gratefull
I have the same camera & same problem- no images- just dark screen with the indicators showing. From what I've read, it could be problems with the glue holding the CCD sensor in place. Apparently, in hot, humid situations this glue is adversely affected. I am going to send mine to Nikon tomorrow for a free fix ( I hope! . . . going on a trip at end of Feb). Use the link in TALLGURI'S post to get the "Service Advisory Product Return Form". By the way, this is happening to many different brand cameras. I got this info from Photo Reporter Vol.13, No, 19, Nov 2005.

Http://www.nikonusa.com/email_images/nikonusa/service_advisory/coolpix.html Check out this service advisory. I just mailed mine in. It has the same problem you are describing.

This is a digital camera; the problem is noted in a Nikon service bulletin and they fix it for free

The symptom you describe is caused by a stuck shutter inside your lens. When the shutter is stuck closed no light can reach the image sensor and the result is a black image on the screen and on photos. You can try GENTLY tapping the camera on a hard surface to free the stuck shutter, but be extremely cautious because this can easily further damage the camera. If that does not work you will have to get the unit serviced or replace it. Check with Nikon for recalls or service bulletins. You can find good repair services online as well.
