Hi Jack,

I received the same error not too long ago and this message from Nikon worked.

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.

So after trying that and it did not work, reports poured in to Nikon that they are willing to help out owners with the error, they opened their support site for 24/7 here is their number 1-800-645-6689

hope this helps, should you need further assistance of have other issues, please let me know.

regards,

voodoo

Check to see if one of the pins inside the memory card holder is bent over. We have lost 2 of these cameras to this problem.

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.

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

My E8800 sometimes shuts off when I click the shutter


Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea
