Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera ?

Monitor and viewfinder flicker

\015 Problem started several days ago when I turned my camera on. Monitor and viewfinder were flickering so much that I couldn't see the image. I played around with the controls (power on-off, zoom in-out, etc) until I thought the problem was suddenly fixed. Unfortunately it was not fixed. There is random unpredictable flickering which shows on the photos I take. Your help will be appreciated.\015

Answers :

I don't have a solution, but do have the same problem. Mine is cleared by switching the camera off and back on again. Also the problem doesn't appear for long, clearing itself, on some ocassions. The problem stated when I was in a hotter climate, about 35degree celcius. \015\012I bought my camera about 3 months after release, I'd be interested to know the age of yours and if this is a common problem. Have you had your camera fixed?

My Fuji FinePix S5000 has given me years of excelent service. While on break I stored the camera for 2-3 months. When I pulled it out I noticed I had inadvertantly stored it in the "playback" mode. It was of course in 'power save off' mode but when I turned it back on, the viewfinder and LCD monitor are black and it takes black pictures like as though the lense cover was on. Everything else is normal, I am able to view previous pictures saved on the xD card and it shows promptings on the monitor

The LCD Monitor of my Canon PowerShot A95 shows purple, white, and black horizontal lines instead of a clear image of what is in the Viewfinder. Pictures taken while showing up this way on the LCD Monitor turn out with the same fuzzy stripes. Light lines show up in the well-lit areas of the scene and dark lines show up where the scene is dark. The problem was intermittent for months but now cannot be corrected by powering off.
