I believe this is the issue that Nikon is repairing at their expense. You can find the advisory on the Nikon website. Here is some of the text from that advisory:
\015\012It has come to our attention that in a\015\012limited number of COOLPIX 3100, 3500, 4500, 5000, 5400, 5700 and SQ\015\012digital cameras, an electronic component may, in some instances, fail\015\012affecting your camera's performance and/or operability.
\015\012While only a limited number of COOLPIX 3100, 3500, 4500, 5000, 5400,\015\0125700 and SQ digital cameras are affected by this advisory, if your\015\012camera presents symptoms that can include (1) images with a strong\015\012color tint, (2) images that are totally black and/or (3) images with\015\012visible defects, Nikon will, upon confirmation that the problem is associated to this Service Advisory, service your camera free of charge.

\015\012To obtain complimentary service for cameras affected by this advisory,\015\012please click the link below to download and print the Service Return\015\012Form. The Service Return Form provides detailed return instructions.

\015\012The Frequently Asked Questions button at the bottom of this page offers\015\012more information about this advisory and, should you have more\015\012questions, also provides information about how to contact Nikon.

\015\012We apologize for any inconvenience you may experience.
\015\012BTW, I sent my E5700 to Nikon a couple of years ago -- for this same\015\012problem. They repaired and cleaned my camera -- and had it back in my\015\012hands within 7 days.
\015\012I hope this helps!

A white stripe across middle of screen with "focus error" in it. Will only allow me to view pictures taken. When I shut it off, seems to be sound of a motor running in it for a few seconds.

The focus error means that it is a lens related problem, most likely a mechanical obstruction in the lens gears. Since you can hear the motor running I am assuming that its fixed itself but the error did not reset. Turn off the camera. Remove the bat ... Fuji FinePix S5200 / S5600 Digital Camera

My panasonic DMC ZS3 camera purchased on 12/14/09 has started showing vertical multicolored stripes on the viewing screen in all modes.
