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

SOURCE: my nikon coolpix s8000 shut down by itself

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after dropping it. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful.

Regards
Andrea

It's clearly faulty, there's nothing you can do to fix it.

Just return it to the retailer for refund or exchange or send it back to the manufacturer for a free warranty repair. Note that all bets are off if the camera has been exposed to moisture, shows impact damage or signs of any unauthorised repairs.

SOURCE: How to upload photos form a nikon coolpix S8000 to

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive. Or you can use Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

Nikon Coolpix won't charge no matter what


The internal battery, which is kept charged by the removable battery, has probably run down. Take it to a repair facility.

Nikon Coolpix S8100 battery won't charge


I have had mine for over 3 years and this just started happening. I bought a new battery and it seemed to fix the problem for about a week but is doing it again. It seems like it won't fully charge now like it formerly did!

Nikon coolpix s80 won't charge


If its under a year old, you should be able to take it back to the vendor for replacement or repair under warranty. You'll need a proof of purchase.

Nikon coolpix s8100 will not turn on. i have only used the camera a few times, and it was recently charged. is there a manual reset button? or do i need to send the camera back to nikon?


If it won't turn on, you're not going to be able to reset it.

Other than sending it back, the only suggestion I can make is do you have or can you borrow a spare battery. If so, try that. It could just be a failed battery.

My Nikon Coolpix s230 flash won't work. It just blinks red in the lower right hand corner. I've tried all the settings and they all won't flash.


If there is a problem with the flash itself or the mainboard connection to the flash it will not charge. If the flash won't charge then it won't go off when you take a picture. The only way to fix the problem is to replace the flash with a good used one and see if that fixes it. If not, then you need to replace the mainboard. Good used parts can usually be found online for cheap; that auction website doesn't pay me to type their name, so I don't, sorry. Hope this helps!

My nikon s8000 wont turn on. It is fully charged, but will not turn on when I press the on button.



Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

My coolpix s8000 will no longer charge, even when plugged into the usb cable.


Have you tried other outlets in your house? If the battery door of the s8000 is open, the charge will not go through. Depending on how much you've been using your camera, you may need to call up Nikon for their support team and ask to get your camera repaired, the battery may be dead and no longer holds a charge.
