Question about Nikon Coolpix 5600 Digital Camera

Af and flash button flash continuously when camera switched on

Hi - I can turn my camera on but the lens does nort come out and both the af and flash lights by the viewfinder flash continuously. None of the buttons work and the screen does not light up. I have only taken 500 pictures with this and find it hard to believe taht this is not a trivial fault. £140 to repair is a joke! I have replaced batteries with fresh.

    Thanks Jackboy - working direct with Nikon proved to be much cheaper than going through the shop where I purchased the camera - all in hand now. Nikon direct charge between £25 and £50 for complete repairs.

How old is the camera? Take a new approach to Nikon. But costs are about right- it is no joke.

Camera takes blurry pictures up close and sharper ones from afar. Camera will not focus on specific object either.


There is a "close focus" limit, depending on your lens. The standard "kit lens" won't focus closer than about 2 feet away. Check that the switch on the lens is set to "AF" not "MF" "MF" means, "manual focus".
When you lightly press the shutter button, the viewfinder should blink with little dots/squares indicating what it focused on, and beep. If it doesn't, and you are set for "AF", then your camera needs repair.

Nikon F65 won't auto-focus or take shots


You're on the right track with oxidation. Try cleaning the contacts in the body and on the lens with contact cleaner, and let it dry. Remove the battery, and clean the contacts inside the camera.

I have a EOS Rebel XS camera with a 18-55mm lens. Every time I try to zoom in both lens and the picture are blurry. Am I just in the wrong settings?


make sure the lens is not in manual mode. on the side there is MF and AF make sure its in AF for auto focus. id its still looking nblurr in the viewfinder when pressing the shutter half way then user the smal wheel next to the viewfinder so the viewfinder is calibrated for your eye.

Hi I bought my canon 1000d on september 2009 and a year later the autofocus doesnt want to work. In the viewfinder on the far right a number 9 has a green dot flashing next to it. Please help!! Ruthven...


The 9 you see is the maximum "burst" which is (pictures made in rapid succession) and is not an issue with your problem at this time the flashing green dot is the in focus confirmation light and it's good that you are seeing this as we will use it to remedy the problem.

What I want you to do is put the AF-MF switch in the manual mode if it's already in manual mode then that was your problem switch to AF and go take some pictures. If it's in AF mode switch to MF make sure teh camera is on and look through the viewfinder at a subject say 15 feet (4.5 meters) away something that has contrast then turn the manual focus ring on the camera slowly until it appears to your ey that it's coming into focus when it's in focus the green light will come on solid, now you know what you are looking for focus an several different objects at different distances and focus manually. Now switch the lens over to AF (auto focus) and focus on the same thing but let the camera do the focusing What auto focus will not focus on in something with little or no contrast like water clear blue sky a painted wall mirror chrome glass and a few other things.
Here is another diagram to check make sure you are in the correct mode.

Now for the focus point in the viewfinder make sure it's in the center position.

To adjust the focus point do this

Once you have the camera set to the center focus point and the correct AF mode (one shot) auto focus should return to your camera. Have fun Robert from London Ontario Canada

Shutter release not responding


Hi tmclaughlin0, In the camera is in AF-S mode, the camera will not shoot until it acquires focus. Look on page 29 of the D80 manual.

Sigma 70-300mm lens defaults to manual focus


It will default to manual through the viewing screen. It will only work on automatic, using the viewfinder. Make sure you also set the focal length (lens to shutter distance). You might also have a mf / af switch on the lens. This also only works through the viewfinder.

Cleaned inside of viewfinder, now AF focus lights gone


Then you learn, when everything works fine, dont mess with it! Have a look at the gold pins that rely the body to the lens. Also check that your lens manual switch focus is engaged... Try a friend lens to see if its your cam or the lens...

Autofocus jumps around and often will not settle on the correct setting


what i do is usually put it onto manual focus then back to auto focus, what it may be is that you are using the wrong lens for your subject :/
