[size=14.6667px]It seems to be a gimbal vibration issue on mine outdoors, but not indoors.
[size=14.6667px]Calibrated gimbal several times, but only helped a little.
[size=14.6667px]Latest firmware is used.
[size=14.6667px]I can feel the vibration with my finger on gimbal and I hear a little noise too. It's like the PID tuning is a bit too high or something.After some time it stops, and work like it should.
[size=14.6667px]
[size=14.6667px]When I take it out in cold weather(5 degree C), the vibrations are present all the time, so could this be related?
[size=14.6667px]
[size=14.6667px]Any clue?

Have you tried to fly without the Gimbal Cover?
Also are you flying in the sport mode?

Always without cover.
Flying in normal mode.
Aircraft can sit quiet on level ground and gimbal is shaking.

Suggested from DJI support:
Calibrate gimbal. Done
Calibrate IMU. Done
Re-link controller to aircraft. Done
Calibrate compass. Done
Upgrade to newest firmware. Tried 3 diffrerent, and the latest release 09 nov. Done

The procedure is done for every new firmware update.

Check out this link.  There are some photos which show you what to look for on the bottom of the gimbal.

Where did you find gimbal calibration, I don't see it in any menu.

Thanks

I've done everything on your checklist as well and I am still having a gimbal vibration error coming up and ruining my video
It doesn't show on the ground but as soon as I take off it takes about 30 seconds to kick on
I've emailed DJI twice and haven't heard back yet since about 3 days ago. I also went to the only drone store around Vancouver and they had no idea
Hopefully someone has a solution

At the person looking for the gimbal button, when you open general settings those 3 little dots. its the second last icon from the bottom the pic of the camera with a line above it.

I did all of this as well and i'm having issues with my gimbal also. It's extremely disappointing and I'm afraid i'm going to have to send mine in for repair. They supposedly told me it would take 5-7 days to repair, but you know how DJI is so no telling how long I'll be out of a drone.

Have the exact same error on my gimbal.

I have no idea why it happens. It seems very random to me. I also live in Norway, and have mainly been flying in temperatures around 0 degrees celcius.

Video both in flight and on the ground:

??? wow some people just blow me away .... what a bizarre person .... i mean what is your thought process ... whats running through your brain ?

Your gimbal worked fine ... then you crashed your mavic and now the gimbal is broken or unseated.

    Of Course you cant return!!!! it after breaking it ... ... how would you think that would be possible ?
You don't have the same problem as other people in this thread .... because your issue was caused by your crash........ are you a very young child ? i just cant comprehend your logic.. i mean wtf??

Mine has the same problem as many of you. Here are a couple links to show you. I got my Mavic a few days ago and it has done it on all of my 3 flights so far, sometimes worse than other times. It even shakes/vibrates when turned on and just sitting on a table or flat ground.

Anyone have a fix/luck with DJI yet? I sent them an initial email about the problem and they said to update firmware, calibrate imu and gimbal and then send them a screen shot of the about screen if the issue continues. None of that affected the vibrations so I sent them a screen shot but haven't hear anything back yet.
