Coolpix 5700 Image Smearing

\015 My Coolpix 5700 often suddenly goes into what I call a smearing mode, where the image in the viewfinder and on the LCD display is badly smeared, much as though one had poured multicolored paint down the image. \015\012\015\012There is no particular pattern to it happening, though I notice that it will often happen when the camera is swung slowly (or quickly, for that matter) from dim light scene to a scene in which there is a bright part, such as a window inside a room. Does it inside or outside, day or night. The smearing (and other colored artifiacts) may or may not show up in the image when it is displayed on the camera LCD. There is often noticeable smearing of very bright parts of an otherwise okay image. \015\012\015\012I tried "reset all" to no avail. No difference. \015\012\015\012As suggested in owner's manual, I set camera to "Clear /Clean Image". No difference. \015\012\015\012Does it on its own battery power or when plugged into AC adapter. \015\012\015\012Sometimes, turning the camera power off and on will clear it up, but usually only temporarily. \015\012\015\012I am NOT getting the horizontal (window blinds) lines reported by some users. \015\012\015\012It's very annoying, because I never know if I'm going to get a good image or not, and when the smearing happens, it is impossible to compose the photo. \015\012\015\012Is this problem related to the bad CCD problrem that Nikon will fix?\015\012\015\012Gary\015\[email protected]\015

It sure sounds like the CCD is acting hinky on you from time to time. Check out http://www.nikonusa.com/email_images/nikonusa/service_advisory/coolpix.html
and call the 800 number in the advisory for better advice from Nikon repair people. This problem seems to be manifesting itself with lots of different kinds of screen displays. Mine just went black. Nikon was very good about making the free repair - all I paid was the cost of sending the camera to them. Don't send your battery, memory card, camera strap or lens cover. All they need is the camera body.

Nikon Coolpix L18 camera LCD screen only shows jumpy lines of images. Took a test picture and viewed through a card reader to find that it is recording images, so the problem is just in the screen. (Also installed fresh batteries.) Camera has been working faithfully on a regular basis. Worked just fine a few days ago. Hasn't been dropped or suffered any 'trauma'.


Hi,\015\012\015\012The fact that the screen is displaying an image even though it is a distorted one of lines in screen indicates that the screen is receiving a signal. This points to a fault with the screen itself and not the camera. ... Digital Cameras

The focal length on my Nikon S52 Coolpix seems to be much shorter than it was originally. No matter the adjustment I make to the settings, at least part of the photo is extremely blurry. I have tried both with Auto-Focus on and off, but there is always a small square in the center of the view finder, and this is only region that shows a focused image. The camera used to produce sharp images throughout the picture. How can I adjust this?


This ccan be an error in the lens settings that have changed the alignment or a possible shift of the lens before the CCD imager.\012This canot be retified wxternally asn I advice that you get help from Nikon, specially if under warranty for a ... Nikon COOLPIX S52 Digital Camera

Camera: Nikon Coolpix E4600 Have tried to transfer images from my Coolpix camera to my computer. Once connected to USB cord, the camera is recognized by the computer except the file transfering programs (Nikon Transfer and PictureProject) don't recognize any files to transfer. Is it a problem with the cord itself? I've put the memory card which has the pictures into my laptop and transfered them successfully that way, which is why it leads me to believe the cord is the issue.

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

Hello, I have a Nikon Coolpix S6000. It has worked well until this evening when I attempted to erase multiple selected images from the camera.

Re: Nikon Coolpix L11 When taking normal daylight pictures (outside), I have much difficulty seeing the image in the monitor. The image is either non existant or very faint.

Just got a new Nikon D80. I'm used to a Coolpix which has continuous images on the LCD. The D80 appears to present an image only when monitoring the picture and not while using the monitor to compose the shot. I assume this is because it is of the SLR breed. Am I correct?


Yes. Only the most recent DSLRs have a Live View capability. The D80 does not. ... Nikon Digital Cameras

We just bought a Nikon coolpix 4000 camera. My partner used a Vivitar screen protector system which has you use a wipe to clean the screen before applying the protector.
