Nikon Coolpix 8700 lens started jerking when going in and out, how to fix it?

Dirt sounds like the problem. Extend, then clean with a moist washcloth with alcohol. If you have a can of compressed air, blow it gently into the joints. Good luck.

To take movie

You can take a movie up to 3 minutes. In shooting menus 1 or 2, go to "Menu", then "Continuous". Scroll down the Continuous screen to get to page 2, then select "Movie". Select your mode and click on that and you should be all set.

When I connect my Nikon Coolpix 8700 to my Windows XP Pro, Windows does not detect the camera.

Having gone a month without a response, I assume using a card reader solved the problem.

Problem with nikon coolpix 8700

Same problem that would not allow me to take a picture without pressing the LOCK button on my Nikon 8700. Here is how I believe I fixed the problem:

Turn the camera ON.

Press MENU button on your camera to bring up the menu.

Scroll down to SET-UP, open the SET-UP menu by scrolling right.

In the SET-UP menu, scroll all the way down to FUNC (Controls) on page 2/3 , open the FUNC (Controls) menu by scrolling right.

You are now presented with 2 options:FUNC and AE-L, AF-L)

Select the FUNC option by right scrolling.

Choose the 2nd option: i.e the mountain, flower and timer icon (distance, macro and self-timer icon) by right scrolling.

Press the MENU button to get out of the menu.

Attempt to take a picture without pressing LOCK.

Should work! Anyways, it worked for me.
