Re: nikon coolpix 5700
The red dot beside SB means that the flash is not ready. If the flash does not pop-up, I would say something is jamming it -- and not allowing the flash to pop-up. If the flash does pop-up, but the red dot stays on, there is a problem with the flash. The simplest might be a battery that is almost dead. The flash has to "charge" before it will fire. I have to admit, you would notice this rather quickly as the camera would power down within a few shots -- even if the flash didn't fire.
Check the pop-up flash position and get back to me. I hope this helps! Please post rating, if it does. Regards, Char1ieJ

From what I have heard Nikon has recalled the Coolpix 5700 because of the SB error. It has something to do with a connector coming away from the printed circuit board. I recommend that you get in touch with Nikon and see if they will repair the flash for you. Click on the link below to contact them.
It appears that you have a ccd problem. That particular model had a ccd problem, whether or not the flash is part of it, I do not know. Here is the link to FREE REPAIR if the problem is the ccd. http://www.nikonusa.com/email_images/nikonusa/service_advisory/coolpix.html
I have sent some Nikons in for repair, and they have been fixed free. The shipping will cost you to send in.
Not to buy a Nikon Coolpix anymore. This is a very bad camera. I had this same error last year. The camera was sent to Japan once, returned to me and worked for six months. Now is the same problem: SB light in red doesn't let me take pictures in light conditions when flash is needed. So, you'd better think in buying a camera, not Nikon, please. JAMP Havana, Cuba
I think it is time fot you contact the Tech Support site.
If it is more than a year old it may be time to replace it
