Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera ?

View finder is black, acts like it takes picture but dispalyed picture is black also, camera displays pictures taken prior to this malfunction


Answers :

This sounds like you're having a problem, either with the shutter mech inside the lens assembly, or else the CCD is not functioning. The unit will have to be serviced, unless you can free up the shutter assembly. You might try blowing compressed air inside the lens assembly, or bumping the camera slightly, on the side, in the hope of freeing up any dirt, lint, or sand that may have worked its way inside the assembly.
\015\012Other than that, the camera will have to be serviced. Here's Nikon's support site:

Display problem Hello, I've had my SD1000 for less than 3 months. Sometimes the display goes black, I can still access the menu options and if I slide the button to review images they will display on the LCD panel.
