Did you switch on the GPS outside? because as long as you are in a building, the GPS won't receive anything from any satellite. Whe outside, give the GPS at least 2 minutes to find any satellite. Being outside, but between high buildings will have the same effect as being inside.

    Thanks much, I will try that. I know that it takes a couple minutes for the gps to find the camera. I do property management and take care of foreclosed properties and the clients are now requesting geo-tagging on all the pictures, so when Im in the house its a little difficult to have the info on the pictures if the gps fades out. But I thank you and I will try what you said. :)

    If you are in a hurry, and you can't get the GPS info quick enough, you could write down the coordinates from your satnav and later add this in ViewNX2. I know you want it the easy way, but when you open ViewNX2 you can chose map, second logo on top left and add metadata on the right side of the page. That is also a place to look back where you took the pictures.

Hi I found this info on the Nikon Australia website:

"System Error" or "Lens Error" message in LCD monitor trnsp.gif Question My COOLPIX camera displays a "System Error" or "Lens Error" message. What should I do? trnsp.gif Answer Having a "System Error" or "Lens Error" message displayed on the camera's LCD monitor would generally indicate that your camera needs servicing. A System Error is a general error which can be caused by many things: lens problem, CF Card problem, general camera failure, etc. To troubleshoot, please try the following:

  1. Use the memory card that originally came with your camera (or a Nikon approved card).
  2. Remove and replace the battery.
On the other hand, a Lens Error generally means that an error has occured during the lens operation. To troubleshoot, please try the following:
  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. Remove and replace the battery.
  3. Turn on the camera.
If the above tips do not help, your camera must be sent to our Nikon Authorised Service Centres, there are no user serviceable parts in our Nikon COOLPIX cameras. We apologize for any inconvenience caused and we will do everything to repair your Nikon camera as quickly as possible. Click Here for our Nikon Authorised Service Centres details.


Seems you may just have to remove and replace the battery - sort of like a Windows Restart to fix a computer problem! - this would reset your camera's memory.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: SOFTWARE NOT WORKING

You may know this already, but you don't need the camera to upload photos. I have used Nikon Digital SLRs for several years and have never uploaded from the camera. You should be able to do so, but in the mean time, remove the SD card and use a SD card reader. If your PC doesnt have a built in SD reader, get a USB version like the SanDisk MicroMate or get SD with a built-in USB plug(see attached photos for both. When connected to your PC, either will show up as a removeable drive on your PC from which you can copy the files onto your PC's harddrive: save the photos, back them up, then use the camera to format the SD card--this is the best way to clear/erase the card. Then try opening the photos with the Nikon software or photoshop or if they are jpegs, windows will view them. Using the camera to upload photos, in my opinion, should only be done when you do not have a way to read the SD card. This can be the begining of a productive workflow and part of the process for organizing and backing up photographs. You should also watch the Nikon website for software updates to fix bugs: http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61 You should also check for firmware updates for your camera(1.11 is the latest for the D40 and no updates yet on the D40x): http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/13783

SOURCE: SD Card in Nikon F10 not recognised by XP

It could be one of two problems. The most likely is that the card reader you are using cannot read SDHC cards, of which all 4GB and larger cards are. Try using the camera's cable to download to your computer directly to the USB port. I bet you'll find that it works that way. The other problem could be (but not likely) that you are shooting on the RAW file format, instead of the jpeg file format. Most software cannot recognize RAW files, but jpeg is pretty universal.

SOURCE: CF light stays on, cards come out unreadable by computer

You may need to have your camera driver and software reinstalled. It seems that the internal writer capabilities are corrupted.

This is evident if each card you use ends up corrupted or unreadable, but the rest of the camera operates normal.

Nikon coolpix troubleshooting


Not even what you are outside?
When you are in a building, it is normal for a GPS receiver that it can't make contact with enough GPS satellites, to calculate wrier it is. When you are outside and have a clear sky, it can take up to one or two minutes before the GPS receiver can work out where it is. But that is it. When your battery has not enough power, the camera also can switch of the GPS, to save power.

Nikon s9300 - When I turn it on, the lense fully extends, but the screen stays black. I have to pop the battery out, then put back in for the lense to retract. Battery is fully charged and even tried


When the battery is fully charged, please put it in again. That means, if it is still in, remove it once again.
Switch it on, and even if you don't see a thing try to make a picture.
Then press the display button several times, to see if anything comes on the screen again.
If the camera does not respond after that, you should go back to the dealer, of contact Nikon.

My gsp only has a sd card no usb slot so how do i transfer the update to my gps Thanks


Depending on the type of GPS you have, you have a few options...

If the update instructs you to put the update files on the SD card, you need a means for your computer to access the SD card. This can be done by using an USB SD card reader, which can be picked up at your local electronics, digital photography store or online.

If you have another device that allows the transfer of data between a computer and the device (and it uses SD cards), you can put the SD card for you GPS into your other device, connect it to the computer through USB, and transfer the update files. For example, if your digital camera uses an SD card, you could put the GPS SD card into the camera, and then connect the camera to the computer.

Make sure you're updating correctly - sometimes the update is a file you run on your PC that in turn transfers files through a different means onto the GPS. Read the manual for your GPS for more information regarding transferring files onto the GPS and updating.

Gps-1 not working on my d90, it say option not available


The D-90 does not come with an internal GPS. However, one can be connected. If you have connected a GPS and are getting this error message, I would suggest you contact both Nikon at www.nikon.com and the GPS manufacturer to get help in troubleshooting the problem.

Won't read an SD card


It sounds like either your GPS plug came out of the back of the unit, or your gps does not have a clear view of the sky, or if the gps is mounted on a trunk that opens and closes a lot the wire can break inside. I dont think the software is your issue, just to make sure if you update make sure the update file is the only file on the card, if there are other files (left over pictures, etc) they can cause the unit to disreguard the whole card.
