My 5700 was more than 3 years old when I had this problem. Nikon repaired it for a nominal fee!! Good luck!

If the Photo is OK then it would appear to be a LCD fault. Checkout Nikon Customer support. At a guess if this more than 2 years old a new camera would be a more economic option.

My toshiba l500 satelite laptop screen has rainbow coloured vertical stripes - could you advise


1. Verify/rule out the graphics card by connecting to an external monitor.

2. Proceed to replace the video cable or LCD. The cable is much cheaper to replace first and is the more likely cause if the screen hasn't suffered physical damage or impacts.

I have a five month old Samsung LN32B360 LCD TV I just turned in on and the picture came on but it had a rainbow look and then the picture goes off with sound only?


When you say 'rainbow look', do you mean vertical coloured lines on the screen? If so, then you will have a faulty Tcon. Could you get a snapshot of the fault and post it on here please then we can identify the problem more easily.

Colourful picture


Discoloration of this sort is caused by magnetism. All CRT TVs (like yours) have a de-gaussing coil around the picture tube that de-magnetizes the screen (more specifically the shadow mask) every time you turn it on. It is likely that the circuit that controls this coil is at fault. There is probably a cold solder joint where it connects to the main circuit board.

The other scenario is that someone (small child generally) has run a magnetic object very near to the screen, magnetizing the shadow mask (inside the picture tube) and causing a rainbow effect. This is less likely if the rainbow effect is a nice even circular shape. Generally if it's been magnetized by a magnet as described the discolored areas will appear blotchy.

In short, if you have some electronics skills, get in there with your soldering iron and touch up the connections to the de-gaussing coil. If not, find someone who does.
