My digital camera keeps cutting off on me , i've tried new batteries, regular & rechargeable batteries, nothing works, now it won't turn on at all, please help me, or send me the information i can use to fix it myself or to send in to u for repairs please! Thank U in advance for help !
First check the specs in the manual, it may have a specific battery it requires. if you are ok and is still not working, there may be a loose contact at the terminals and you need an expect to fix it properly for you. i would love to but am far away (Ghana). all the best. thanks

In most modern cameras is a little rechargeable battery, that keeps the clock ticking. If your camera was a long time without power, perhaps this battery has died. I would buy a new set NiMH rechargeable or recyclo batteries, because they have a bit less capacity, but can hold power for as long as a year. Then charge them and leave the rechargeable batteries in your camera. Keep your fingers crossed, perhaps the little clock battery will be revived?
Try rechargeables anyway just in case.Sometimes with age these cameras don't work well with alkalines. If that still doesn't work then I would suggest contacting your local Nikon authorized service center.

There is a systems control board failure or the systems control has detected a problem in the camera. I know you have fully charged your batteries, but try regular batteries just to be sure, because as the rechargeable batteries degrade the systems controller will shut the camera down.
if the camera wont turn on remove the memory card and make sure your pictures are transfered. Try using regular disposable batteries. Also when trying to turn it on try holding down the power button for 5 seconds. If it still doesnt turn on coud be a broken switch connection.
Off-the-shelf NiMH rechargeable batteries, and the special lithium nonrechargeablebatteries sold as esepcially good for camera use, don't have enough voltage output for this camera. Try using regular alkaline batteries or the rechargeables sold by the manufacturer.
I have a ViviCam 8400 and have the same problem UNLESS I buy Duracell Power Pix or Energizer Titanium batteries. These cost more than the regular grade AA batteries, but when I used brand new regular batteries, the camera would turn on for 2 seconds then turn right off. Titanium or Power Pix batteries make the camera work fine. And, because they are made for digital media, they do allow you to use the camera for longer periods of time.
totally discharge the batteries [by putting them in a torch to tun them right down] the rechagre them fully,
If this does not improvethings = the repair djop
but be warned it can be pricey - almost new camera time perhaps.
Sorry, no solution. Same problem here. I am very unhappy because initially it took great pictures. The first one I tried only worked a couple of days and I returned to store and they replaced. Second worked a couple of months and now immediately draws down power and won't work on new batteries. I was told to use NH-10 batteries (rechargeable). I did this from the beginning. Still won't hold charge.
