Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix 8700 Digital Camera ?

Shutter release/AE lock and control panel display

\015 I only can shoot a picture after pressing the AE-AF lock button. On the control panel only the batteries energy level and the shooting mode are displayed. I fail to change the original release button function and the full control panel display. I tried to restore to factory settings and reinstalled the latest firmware.It is likely that these observations are linked. I would appreciate any assistance.\015

Same problem that would not allow me to take a picture without pressing\015\012the LOCK button on my Nikon 8700. Here is how I believe I fixed the\015\012problem:

Turn the camera ON.

Press MENU button on your camera to bring up the menu.

Scroll down to SET-UP, open the SET-UP menu by scrolling right.

In the SET-UP menu, scroll all the way down to FUNC (Controls) on page 2/3 , open the FUNC (Controls) menu by scrolling right.

You are now presented with 2 options:FUNC and AE-L, AF-L)

Select the FUNC option by right scrolling.

Choose the 2nd option: i.e the mountain, flower and timer icon (distance, macro and self-timer icon) by right scrolling.

Press the MENU button to get out of the menu.

Attempt to take a picture without pressing LOCK.

Should work! Anyways, it worked for me.

Mirror locked up at 125th or slower and infill flash does not flash. At faster speed it works fine. The display on top of camera goes virtually blank and battery display flahes a sif it battery was exhausted. If shutter release is pressed again then camera goes back to normal 'ready to sheet' mode.As flash is synced to 125th I suspect that the flash is the problem (or maybe it is just coincidence) I have tried cleaning, used lenses and put in a brand new battery. Any clues?

The top (monochrome) LCD on our Nikon D80 recently broke. I think that it is actually called the "Control Panel," and displays settings, battery life, number of pictures remaining, etc. Please note that this is not the 2.5" color LCD on the rear of the camera. I know that it is merely the LCD because the backlight works, as does portions of the LCD display itself. Does anyone know of a guide or video to perform this repair? Also, does anyone know the part number? I plan to call Nikon tomor

CHA is blinking on the control panel, and on the viewfinder it says Card is locked. Can't get rid of these things, and obviously can't take pix. We just charged the battery before Easter and haven't been able to shoot anything since then.

First, remove the memory card and look at it. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. Then put the card back i ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

I have a d80 and I have two problems: 1) I can't get the monitor to work while I am taking the picture, I can only review it. 2)Whenever I take the aperture out of the locked position of 22, the aperture reading on the control panel blinks: F EE, and the remaining exposures reading changes from exposures remaining to: r11. Please help.

1) The D80 does not have a Live View capability, you must use the viewfinder. The display is for menus and reviews.2) Leave the lens locked at the smallest aperture (highest number). Change the aperture using the command wheels. ... Nikon Digital Cameras

And if i set the AE Lock On, pressing the shutter button half way does not lock the exposure setting. so there seems to be an issue with the shutter button itself...is there an easy fi
