Customer Question
Greetings. I have two...

Greetings. I have two Nikon Coolpix P900 cameras, both with the same issue: when photographing in continuous shooting mode (with a Class 10 memory card installed), the camera stores the photos and gives a "System Error" message which will not clear until I turn the camera off and on again. I am using the camera for action photography, so clearly this is unacceptable. What can I do to fix this issue? I should note that one of these cameras was sent in last month with this problem. The repair place updated the firmware, but the problem persists.

Technician's Assistant: How old is your CoolPix?

Less than 5 months since bought new

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your CoolPix?

I just updated firmware again, but it seems not to have changed the issue

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of.
