Nikon 1 V3 not able to Capture Image

Question

I am able to connect to my Nikon 1 V3 and I can enter the Frame and Focus Mode which works fine.  However, when I try to capture an image the program just shows Busy, the download attempt times out after 59 seconds, and just continues to show busy until I abort the process or turn off the camera.  I have attached the most recent log.

The camera works fine with the Nikon Camera Control Pro 2 software; all functions work including focus control.

I can go through the motions, but the same thing happens as when I try to capture an image, Busy, then time-out after 59 seconds. Trying to abort does nothing and I have to turn the camera off to get out.

I tried the factory reset.  Unfortunately it didn't help; I get the same results.

Yes, a lens is attached to the camera; I've tried using a native Nikon 1 lens, a Nikkor full frame lens with an FT1, and I've tried by attaching a telescope to the camera.  All the same results.  I've tried in AF-S, AF-C, and Manual Focus. All the same results.

I was using the FT1 adaptor with a Nikkor 200-400mm lens, so I assume the FT1 does not allow the aperture value to be shown, but I could be wrong there. Anyway, the lens was set for f4.0.  I noticed that in several attempts today and in some attempts I forced an aperture value in BYN by setting it to the aperture value, but it didn't make any difference; it still didn't work.

Oh well, that's too bad.  I'm stumped too.  I think I've tried every combination of setting the little camera has and nothing works.  It just isn't getting the command to trigger the shutter from BYN.

Yes, the camera immediately returns a camera busy as soon as the take picture command is sent, then shut down.  When every I've seen this is was attributed to a camera setting... and a factory reset usually fixes it.  Not in the case :(
