I would think simple first.It appears your camera can take a photo, but it has problems storeing it.

I've found that it can record images in TIFF-RGB, JPEG or RAW (NEF) format.Try and see if you can change the format of the picture and see if it can store it.

Also, the storage is compactFlash Type II card slot (Microdrive compatible).I don't know what type of microdrive you're using, but try changeing it or see if it can make problems to other cameras(if it's supported).

As a last resort, try restore the default settings of the camera.

Any of these ideas are worth to try...anything but paying 163;206.00 would help :P.Wish you luck, my friend!

When I shot each photo, the "system error 2" appears and I have to turn off the camara,


System Error 2 on Nikon Coolpix 8800 is usually after blow, even the small one, when you or somebody kick the camera and yes, FULL RESET on Set Up mode is just one solution. It's camera's error not the card.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
From Nikon website:

Having a "System Error" message display on the camera's LCD display generally indicates a problem where the camera will need to come to Nikon for repair. A System Error is a general error which can be caused by many things: lens problem, CF Card problem, general camera failure, etc. Before sending the camera in, check these:
  1. Use the memory card that originally came with the camera (or a Nikon approved card) [/*]
  2. Remove and replace the battery [/*]
If the error is still displayed, contact Nikon's Service Department (below). If the above tips do not help the camera must be sent to Nikon Service, there are no user serviceable parts on Nikon Coolpix cameras.

We apologize for the inconvenience and will do everything we can to repair your Nikon camera as quickly as possible.

I have a Nikon Coolpix 8800 with a "System Error 2"


Check the memory card. It's probably damaged. If not it should be a software error, and you have to take it to the dealer where you purchased it from

Nikon Coolpix 3100 will not turn off or lense retract


Hi,

Try removing the battery from the camera to see if this will force a reset. This may well resolve the problem.

If your problem persists after this please do add a comment and I try to assist further.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Wont turn on but light is blinking


Are there any error messages on the LCD display?

Will the camera lens stay out when the camera is turned on?

Can you still take a photo/flash/sound without seeing the photo?

If the camera will not turn on even with a fresh set of batteries it could have a system or lens error in the camera.

a possible lens jamb when closed and the green led on top comes on then shuts off after the lens attemps to extend but cant.

Nikon Coolpix 8800VR Digital Camera


I have heard of this problem and it was sometimes solved by the following...

1. Remove battery and memory card

2. Place a paperback book on a solid surface

3. Bump the camera firmly on the paperback book

4. Reinstall battery and test

Worth a shot if it can save you from sending it in for service.
