Question about Nikon Coolpix 8800 Digital Camera
My coolpix 8800 shuts down. Sometimes right after I turn it on, sometimes, when I'm taking photos. I tried new batteries. thanks.
Make sure the battery contacts are clean also the camera's battery contacts can get grubby too. You cold be suffering from an intermittent connection. Worth a try.

Make sure to use good NiMH batteries. Another possiblity is a problem with the card. Borrow a card and see if it has any effect. check to see that the pins in the card slot are all aligned, none out of place. check that the card door and the battery door close firmly, with some pressure. The camera can shut down when it has a problem detecting that the doors are closed. When it does turn on, play with the zoom without taking pictures, zoom in and out, if during zoom the camera shuts down then you might have a lens problem, something is malfunctioning in the lens mechanism and the camera shuts down to prevent damage. Good luck

I think this was a firmware fault on some cameras. Check with Nikon to see if there is a new firmware for your particular camera. This can be downloaded free of charge and uploaded to the camera via USB.

Check the memory card. It's probably damaged. If not it should be a software error, and you have to take it to the dealer where you purchased it from

Make sure to shut the battery door! I had the same problem. The only way to access the a/v out is to open the battery door but you must shut the battery door or it won't charge
