Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera ?

Faulty coolpix 5700 flash (& SB red dot)

\015 My CoolPix 5700 is a few years old. Never had much need for the flash, sometimes I'd get the flashing SB red circle, but usually just changed to another user profile and forgot about it. After being given the responsibility of taking a friends wedding shots, an indoor flash would be useful I thought. After buying a SB-50DX speedlight, I found that taking pics with the flash wouldn't work no matter what was tried. The flash unit could be fired itself with the test button so I knew that worked, but it would not work with the camera at all. In this thread Nikon's response was"It is unfortunate to hear of so many incidents involving this similar\015\012fault, however, as I stated previously, this is not a know fault and at\015\012this time Nikon is not performing repairs free of charge." Well it's unfortunate that I will be probably taking my business elsewhere, maybe to Canon. I have just over a week to sort something out for the wedding.\015

AF problem Last week I took some pics that needed the flash turned off. I did that and took the pics with no problem. I turned the flash setting back to "auto" afterwards. (this may not be related to the current problem but does seem too much of a coincidence). Next time I went to use the camera, I got an AF(red dot) and a red hand on the screen. It would take one picture and then would be frozen (no zoom, no picture taking, but the screen would stay on). If I turn it back on I can then ta
