  • endunk Feb 11, 2008

    I used this 4600 for about 3 yrs w/Sansdisk 1gb and 512 ultra2 sd cards. I got a new 1 gb Kingston Tech, card and put it in my camera to try it.

    First the lens operated properly but I got "WARNING - THIS CARD CANNOT BE READ"

    I ejected the card and re-inserted it as I thought it my not be seated in the slot properly. When I turned the camera on, I got the "SYSTEM ERROR.....1.....0" message and the camera will not work at all. It opens up to the error message only. There is no way to get to menu or anything. The lens will not even extend out. I tried the changing of the card, new batteries, no card, waiting 24 hrs to re-install the batteries even but nothing works. Has anyone tried to get help from Nikon Support?

I posted a message with info about repairs that included the repair shop info that fixed my 4600 for $30 but someone deleted all but their link to a repair form.
This jumper repair was what I was told he did to my camera.
If you go to the Nikon site you will find that there is no updated OS available for the 4600. Where are they getting this new OS from?

Let me give you a little information about this issue. Nikon 4600, S1 and S3 have a faulty operating system. The good news is that there is an update for it. The process of repairing that issue might take an hour or two. You have to hard boot the camera with a jumper setting on the unit to force the new operating system in the camera and then upload all the updates.

Nikon is repairing them for people, but they want you to send it in and are charging people $87 for the repair. You might be able to find someone near you that can do the repair for you much cheaper.

It might just be better to buy a new camera.
Sorry i couldn't help more. Good luck.

Sytem error 10

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.

Sort of like a Windows Restart to reset the memory.

Hope this helps.
