Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera ?

When I turn it on, it won't focus and it has a hazey green glow through the viewfinder. It's a Nikon Coolpix 5700.


Answers :

Digital cameras focus with a lens attached to a circular, swiveling ring, controlled by small electromagnets. When dirt, dust, lint, or sand works its way into the lens assembly, the focusing ring can become jammed, not allowing the lens to swivel and focus. This, in turn, messes up other settings, which is why you're probably seeing a green haze. You can try to free up the lens by spraying compressed air into it, in hopes of dislodging the obstruction. Some people have reported banging the camera gently with the palm of the hand to free it up. Here is a web blog that talks about lens issues, and may help you:

\015\012If this doesn't help, the camera will have to be serviced unless you're really handy with this kind of tedious repair.

My Nikon P80 Coolpix started to have problem focusing. Auto focus now only occasionally works (it can sometimes focus and the green "in focus" indicator would come on). Most times, the auto focus does not work (the display and the actual pictures are all blurred). It's not covered by the warranty any more (more than 2 years after we bought it). Any ideas?

We bought our Nikon Coolpix 8100 just before Halloween. I was in the middle of taking a picture today - my finger was halfway down on the button to focus it - and the camera went black. The lens is still out and open, as if it was turned on. Pushing the power button doesn't do anything. I plugged it into the charger - the green light blinks periodically. I am unable to get the camera to turn on or off either while it is plugged in or after I unplug it.


What it might need is to remove the power source (battery) for a few seconds 20-30. The camera is a fairly new model so it should also be under warranty. If the camera doesn't begin to operated properly after reinstalling the battery you might want t ... Digital Cameras

Nikon Coolpix S50 has screwey autofocus when I shoot close-up. I select my subject, center it within my frame, depress the shapsot button half-way in order to initiate the autofocus function... The camera then begins to slide between out-of-focus, to in-focus, then keeps on going to out of focus again, and then slides "back" to an out of focus position! I understand that it is "looking" for the sharpest image as it does this--- but what it consistently selects is NOT the sharpest image! Ide
