System Error 1 0

After inserting a 1GB memory card, my 4600 coolpix displays system error 1 0 in red color. I tried to fix it up by changing batteries and changing the recommended memory card too but in vain. Can anybody help me get rid out of this f*kin problem?

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.

I got message "system error


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 [/*]

System error 10


Nikon support made these suggestions:

1. insert the memory card that originally came with the camera (Nikon approved card).

If that doesn't help, then:

2. remove the camera batteries. Leave the batteries out for 24 hours. then replace them



If these suggestions don't resolve your problem, they say the camera must be sent to Nikon Service because there are no "user serviceable parts on the Nikon Coolpix cameras"

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

Hello, Many times when someone fools with a memory card and the camera is on, it sort of backfires when the camera is trying to read or write data to the memory card. Error 10 might be attached to a fault in the memory card or system error. Try doing this first: remove you memory card when the camera is off. Remove you batteries so it can reset. Leave the batteries out for 30 secondsthen replace them. Use a brand new SD memory card and then turn on camera. Go to menu and format the new memory card and see if this helps. Good luck.

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.

System Error


Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.
