You see, I thought before that it was completely dead.

Having just encountered the (now infamous) "Lens Error" on my Coolpix L1 and reading the above comments, I decided to give the side of the camera body a gently whack on have a peek here

Unfortunately many P&S type cameras with telescoping zooms are vulnerable to damage. the maual was in chinese so couldn't read it. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/1083175
For me it is a real surprise that the 8700 is already replaced by a camera with much better specs. A System Error is a general error which can be caused by many things: lens problem, CF Card problem, general camera failure, etc. Been working ever sense. Luckily I carry my S5 with me too!
While i may not be much of a heavy user,still this has thus been the only problem i've encountered with the camera (*touch wood*). Then we get this "Lens error" thing and guess what? Which I don't. The lens makes a different noise, but hopefully hitting this "wonderful" camera will continue to work.
No, create an account now. At completion of upgrade restart camera (in Shooting mode) 7. It may very well work better and better. http://forum.digitalcamerareview.com/threads/nikon-coolpix-8800-system-error-two.162/ MATTinNE_FL Matt in FL's gear list:Matt in FL's gear list DxO One Reply Reply with quote Complain Nikon Mike • Forum Member • Posts: 82 Re: System Error -
Miracle. I have tried various menus, battery charged fully, VR off or on, battery in - out,etc. So stay tuned!Mike Rubin wrote: I did a quick check and this was the result.Question "System Error" message in LCDAnswer Having a "System Error" message display on the camera's LCD display Has the dreaded System Error arose for anyone else?
Now I think I'm even more upset that Nikon hasn't recalled these lemons to fix whatever bug it is that needs a beating. http://forums.steves-digicams.com/nikon/49300-8800-system-2-error-shutdown-every-pic-help.html Read this site and gave it a good bump on a paperback book (just as Tim described above) and it worked right away! Thanks a mint to Doug on August 12, 2005 (fourth comment)... I thought nothing of it until the dreaded lens error message appeared.
just whack the side?......you must be joking WHACK.... navigate here Reproduction in whole or part in any form or medium without specific written permission is prohibited. Does anyone have experience with this problem? I hope that that also makes it mechanically stronger as a lot of people have had problems with it (LENS ERROR).
Good luck with yours. -Greg-Ed Hug , Nov 06, 2005; 10:53 a.m. I wouldn't hesitate by taking straight back to the dealer for a replacement. Yes, I'm quite happy. Check This Out I guess I will have to ship back.
Camera control using PictureProject COOLPIX Remote Control is now possible. (since firmware version 1.5) 6-GB Microdrives can now be used. So, of anyone out there has a LENS ERROR problem, trying thumping it and see if you get lucky.

thanks for this really excellent tips!!!! previously i had turned it on and off lots of times with no luck. Fortunately I bought a 5 year extended warrantee. Nothing worked, neither taking battery out, nore resetting the camera and reformatting the card (Nikon actually suggests that!), but hitting the camera gently with the palm of my hand in karate
I just hope Nikon and the extended warrantor treat me properly. Nikon promises 3 stops and photos should be sharp at 1/30s at 250mm.
