I find this Nikon Coolpix 775 camera very annoying because when you want to look at the picture you have just taken it takes ages and ages, especially when you're trying to flick through your pictures… Read Full Review

“Terrible. I've had this camera for over 2 years and I...”

Written on: 20/12/2007

Terrible. I've had this camera for over 2 years and I hate it. One thing is that it's frustratingly slow. After you snap a picture, it takes about 5-7 seconds to load and process it before you can take another one. Also, I hate it because it's bulky. It's so heavy and wide in width, I feel so ashamed with it when I see my friends pull out their sleek, shiny new Sony cameras. Only good thing is that it has lots of settings (11!!!) while some cameras have a meager three functions(camera, record… Read Full Review

I love the features, and quality of the photos I got from my Nikon 775, but the other day without warning I got this "System Error", and the lens assembly froze open. I went online to see what info I could find, and realized that this is a very common problem. I strongly suggest that no one buy a used 775 online, because it appears to have a severely limited life span… Read Full Review

I totally agree. This error appeared almost 3 years to the day after my purchase from Jessops in Edinburgh. Does anyone know if there is a 5 year statutory obligation for manufacturers to warranty electrical goods? I read that they do, but have never had occasion to test it.

“Great quality photos in good light, or short range...”

Written on: 12/12/2004 by norinrad (1 review written)

Great quality photos in good light, or short range indoor photos with the flash.
But, poorer quality photos when outside in lower light (even using the features to compensate for this).
Most frustrating is the inability to take good sports photos because of the delay between button press and photo capture.
Lots of good features.
Easy to transfer to pc with a usb cable.
Decent software bundle.
First malfunction came after 3 years - The flash has stopped responding - No idea how to get it fixed… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/12/2004 by sgjjj (1 review written)

While the SYSTEM ERRORs do pop up at the most inconvenient times, I've always managed to fix them without opening the camera - a paintbrush and a little patience; the cause either a microscopic grain or piece of dust in the shutter, or the lens barrel, or possibly (but not probably) inside - there's an optical sensor on the lens motor shaft (a little propellor) that tells the camera's smarts that the motor has stalled, and pulls the plug on all functions. HOWEVER, like all of these things if it… Read Full Review

“Beware! I had owned my camera for just over a year...”

Written on: 22/09/2004 by Snoozycat (2 reviews written)

Beware! I had owned my camera for just over a year when the zoom began to malfunction. It would not retract when switched off, then the camera would display "System Error". I managed to take a few photos before it refused to take any more - not good when you have no back up camera on holiday! I returned to Jessops feeling very annoyed. The warranty had expired but I did not expect a Nikon camera to be so unreliable. I was informed it would cost £124 to fix the camera - I complained. I… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/06/2004 by Belsie (1 review written)

I have had my Nikon Coolpix 775 digital camera for 2 years. It has never let me down, locked up, or shown an error message. I use it in my work as an Accident Scene Investigator. I do not like the very slow reaction time, especially at low light levels, and the battery save feature. The camera is always "OFF" when I want to take the next shot.

However, well worth the money (I paid 386 GBP)… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/04/2004 by Vince8 (1 review written)

Repair: a week ago, I dropped the Nikon Coolpix 775 digital camera from 4 feet on a semi-hard floor. Lens was jammed shut, and the display showed 'system error'. Opened the case [easy: 2 silver screws on LHS and RHS, 4 at bottom - note that 2 of the 3screws for the tripod are different- then the case pops open], remove the lens assembly [4 black screws] and notice that the plate at the base of the assembly had popped out of its 2 groves. The motor assembly can be disconnected and tested. Put… Read Full Review

Thanks Vince...
<br>Last week (whilst on holiday of course) my 775 came up with the good old jammed zoom / lense cover trick with the "system error" message.
<br>
<br>Having read various user comments it seems pretty pointless returning it to Nikon (repair cost exceeds value of new camera) so I followed your instructions and hey presto it works again! Didn't really see what I did - perhaps there was grit in the zoom or something - anyway it's now taking fine pics again, even if the motor sounds a little lumpy. As you say, this is pobably best tried by those who spent their childhood taking old cassette players and watches to pieces!

Julezbug's Response to 152754_Vince8's Review

Written on: 25/04/2006

I just stumbled on this forum because after 5 years of faithful service from my coolpix 775, i finally received the dreaded "system error". Before i got to these postings i was pretty much resigned to sending it to nikon to see how much it would be to repair. Since reading that the cost is quite hefty, i decided it was worth giving a shot at opening the thing up. Removing the initial screws was painless. I used a glasses screwdriver. Pulling it apart after that was a little scary though and i never found all 4 black screws, only 2 as one of the other commenters suggested. After getting it apart as far as i could to see if i could get at the lens in any way or assess what might be the gear/motor mechanism for the lens, i decided i was potentially doing more harm than good. I put it all back together and before inserting the screws, I turned it on just to see what would happen and it is now working again! So, hopefully, that may help someone else in a similar situation...and thanks to the comments of others i've saved a wod of dough...thanks to all of you for your helpful comments...much appreciated! cheers...

Help! I opened the 775 with no problem, but I could only find 2 black screws instead of 4. Where are they located? I could not find a diagram of the inside of the camera on the internet.

I have had a Nikon 775 with the System error for over 12 months now. We packed it away and bought a new camera. A very large Fuji finepix and it is great. But can't slip it in your pocket like the coolpix. I didn't want to take a big camera on vacation next week. A neighbour had the same problem as me but he said after some 'fiddling' it worked for him and said I should try the same. I came across this review half an hour ago. I took the camera apart, I couldn't find the lens assembly to unfasten! I didn't dare prod any further. I just checked all the wires were secure, brushed it with a clean make up brush put it back together and YES!!! It works!!!! Thank you Thank you xxxxxx It's working for now and that will do for me. Mexico and the beach here I come packing a hefty Ziplock baggy for the coolpix lol.

My camera showed "system error" and the lens would not open. I put a little silicone on the gear threads and now the camera works. The screws are very small, a lightly magnitized small Phillips head screwdriver let me put the internal and external screws back in with no problem. Total time for repair was about one hour.

Written on: 20/11/2003 by garethmiller (3 reviews written)

This is my first digital (I also have a Canon SLR) and I have been pleasantly surprise by the quality of the photos, both on a PC screen and when developed onto photopaper. Unfortunately the camera's worst point is incredibly frustrating: it is very slow. For example, it takes a good 5 or 6 seconds between switching it on, and actually being able to take a photo. The same problem occurs when the screen automatically shuts off to power save - it takes an age to power back up. The battery life… Read Full Review

I bought it in the USA 20 months ago and have taken over 5,000 pictures with. Invested in a 128Mb card though to keep resolution good for A4 prints. Generally happy with it but colours are not as good as other cameras and the lighting is terrible.
My next buy will be a Canon for sure!… Read Full Review

Yip, guess what, I have had the infamous "SYSTEM ERROR" message and the lens is stuck shut. As this happend halfway though my summer vacation I am pretty upset.

Although, my camera is about 18months old now so I guess I'm lucky it lasted that long by the sounds of things. Haven't yet had an estimate from Nikon for repair but I imagine it won't be worth it.

I will not be buying a Nikon camera again… Read Full Review

Had the infamous "SYSTEM ERROR" and lens wouldn't retract. Told by Nikon that it's a discontinued product (I am in Canada) and it don't carry parts for this model anymore. I took great care with the camera and think strongly it is manufacturing fault. I just felt I had throw away money into the sea!

A good product if it works but a junk if it ever fails! So Beware… Read Full Review

My Nikon Coolpix 775 has got this System Error on the LCD screen. I can't do anything except download the pics to my computer. Has anyone found a loophole regarding getting this camera fixed, OR has anyone else got Nikon to repair this fault? Please help me.

Written on: 01/05/2003 by Jaap Leendertse. (1 review written)

The Nikon Coolpix 775 is a nice camera for its price, I took about 3000 pictures with it, and I am still satisfied. It is small and quite robust for its plastic cover, although it fall out of my hands for a few times, it never failed its function.

The pictures itsself are very sharp, but the color balance fails now and then, especially with flashless indoor shooting (you have to adjust it yourself). Therefore for the outdoor shooting it is perfect. The indoor movie is completely not possible… Read Full Review

“My Coolpix is 15 month old and still under warranty. ”

My Coolpix is 15 month old and still under warranty.
But now I have continous system errors. The lens won's move any more.

I send the camera to nikon. The said it is my fault because their were sand in the camera. They want 260 Euro for repair. At that price repair is waste of money ( a new model with equal quality is 290)

I took good care of my camera.
This is not the quality i expected of a Nikon Camera
My NikonEM is 20 years old and still takes good picutres

Beware of Nikon Digital… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/10/2002 by Gobnat Scott. (1 review written)

We've had a Nikon Coolpix 775 digital camera for nearly 8 months now and it's been really useful (we've almost taken 1000 shots!). We're generally happy with the camera, so while this review has bad points, read them in this context.
Our main gripes with it are
(a) the battery must be removed to recharge it;
(b) while the camera has an onboard battery, that battery won't last during the charging cycle for the main battery - so we need to reset all the features each time we recharge. This only… Read Full Review
