Question about Nikon Coolpix 8800 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera is not turning on; no power

I just charged my battery, used the camera for an hour and then turned it off for a while. When I went to turn it back on after taking out memory card to put photos on computer, and putting card back in camera, the camera would not turn on again. It's been a day and it still doesn't turn on. I've taken the battery out and it still does nothing....is my camera dead?!

    Thanks for your help... I took my camera to a camera repair shop and a pin in the memory card slot is broken and it shorts out the entire internal system....so my camera is broken!

    When I put a fully charged battery into the camera, it will discharge without being used in about 18 hours. I tried a second battery and the same thing happens. I recharged one battery using my charger and one using a charger at a local camera retailer. Same problem occured when I placed each of the batteries in the camera. I also charged the batteries and left them out of the camera. They did not discharge so I've ruled out a battery and charger problem. The problem is something in the camera. I've also emailed Nikon with the problem and expect to hear back within 24 hours.

    My coolpix 8800 also won't turn on after working well for quite a while.  Tried two fully charged batteries and an AC adapter... still nothing happens when you switch it on.  Checked memory card pins and they are all fine.  Wondering if it is the on/off switch... but how to check that?

Hi,

Please make sure that the Battery in the Camera is fully charged.
Please check if the issue is with the battery charger. Make sure that the Charge Lamp in the Battery Charger is lit when connected to the Wall outlet.
You can try recharging the battery pack for almost 6 hours as initial charging.
If you've another battery pack, try using the same to check if the issue is with the Camera or with the battery.
You can also try turning on the Camera by connecting the optional ACL-S5K AC Adapter. This Adapter can be used for turning on the Camera, it cannot be used to charge the battery pack. For charging the battery in the Camera, the supplied battery charged needs to be used.
If the Camera is not turning on using both the AC Adapter and new battery, then the Camera may require service.

Wont go to picture taking screen or playback menu


A lot of cameras seem to be having this issue (including myself). Eventually it got to a point where the camera doesn't even turn on properly anymore. Better take it back for repair, STAT before it ends up like mine :(

My Sony VSC 1 camera is not turning on!!!! The charge went out and the camera turned off. After that it's not turning on. What do I do?


1. Please make sure that you're using the fully charged battery.
2. Try resetting the Camera. To reset the Camera, remove the battery from the Camera, press and hold the Power button for 30 seconds and then, reinsert the battery.
3. Please make sure that you're using the compatible battery with the Camera.
4. You may also try using a different battery to check whether the issue is with the battery.

The battery is run down every time I come to use the camera. So it seems to bleed out power even when turned off. I have replaced the original battery and the new battery also runs out while sitting turned...


Hi,
This is not a common/generic problem for this camera, we need to be a bit more creative into it resolution.
I am assuming that you have already checked for accidental 'power on' of the camera prior to reporting it. By accidental power on, i mean that as this is one of those semi-pro dslr cameras you need to make sure that the power is turned off before you replace the lens cap as otherwise you can mistakingly leave the camera on while the covered lens will show nothing on the lcd/viewfinder display.
Check the time it takes for you to charge your battery. It should take a minimum of 5.5 hours to charge the battery fully. If the charging light on the charger turns off before then, continue charging for the next couple of hours. Try using the batteries again. Also, please note that temperature is very important both during usage and charging. As per Sony, the optimum charging temperature is 25 degrees C or 77 degrees F. In colder areas, battery power runs out extremely fast.
