No firmware upgrade available yet, but did you set the camera settings to the TYPE of battery you are using? Go to Setup, chose Battery, then set type - alkaline, lith, metal hyd, etc and see if that helps.

As far as I know the "batteries exhausted" message is unique to nikon, and it's also a relatively common problem with nikons. What was wrong with the HP? After you get the batteries exhausted message, does the camera really stop working, or can you keep shooting? I know it as an incorrect reading problem, that you can keep shooting regardless of the message. Can you get anything at all out of the batteries, or does it give the message and shuts down? Are you using NiMH batteries(you should), or alkalines?(not a good idea, The internal resistance is too high and because of the heavy current load, you wind up with too much voltage drop). Don't throw away your "exhausted" ones. They will still perform in lower current devices such as a walkman, they just don't cut it for a digicam. (when you do throw it, do us all a favor and use a battery disposal facility ;] ). The error might clear with a firmware upgrade. Good luck!

How to solve system error 1 over 0.


Hello

When a System Error message appears on the LCD screen of the Nikon Coolpix 4600 this usually means the camera has a fault that will need repairing. There are two things you can try first. The first one is to try a different memory card. The second is to remove the batteries for 24 hours and then put them back in the camera and try again. If this does not work contact nearest Nikon Service Center.


Good Luck, do rate the solution if helps

Go to store and purchase a memor card reader/writer. It will allow you to put your memory card in it and download the pictures to the computer via the usb port. Make sure the reader/writer is made to accept your type of memory card.

Screen black in all lighting. Icons and menu show and can view photos already on card, but screen black in all modes. Can take picture, but it is also black. Lens cover is open. Nikon Coolpix 4600. Thanks...


Hello, I went and researched a few points in the manual and hope this helps to some extent. If this doesn't help, try resetting your camera by removing the batteries for 30 seconds, then reinstalling them and turning on the camera again.

• Camera is off.
• Batteries are not correctly inserted or battery-chamber
cover is not properly latched.
• Batteries are exhausted.
• EH-62B AC adapter (available separately) is not properly
connected.
• Camera is in sleep mode. Press shutter-release button
halfway.
• Monitor is off.
• USB cable is connected.
• AV/Video cable is connected


No picture is taken when shutter release button is pressed:


• Camera is in playback mode.
• Batteries are exhausted.
• Red (!) lamp flickers: flash is charging.
• Green (AF) lamp flickers: camera unable to focus.
• Message "CARD IS NOT FORMATTED" appears in
monitor: memory card is not formatted for use in your
camera.
• Message "OUT OF MEMORY" appears in monitor:

Replacing the battery door on a Nikon CoolPix 4600


Call 3104148107 This is the Nikon Parts line, be warned it will probably take as long as 30-45 minutes of old time to get to a person. 
Once you can get to a person, give them the camera model and describe the problem. They just sold me a replacement battery door for $9.95 + $6 dollars shipping and handling. 

The rep was so nice he even printed out the device design blow up, and the relevant section of the manual, so I could see the step by step with out having to purchase the full blown repair manual, which runs $83.
