Question about Nikon Coolpix 8800 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Nikon Coolpix 8800

Hi We have had this camera for about a year. Takes really cool pictures. But the problem is that sometimes it freezes up when switching on, or after taking a picture. The only way to get it to respond is to take the battery out and put it back in again. This is getting more frequent. I have updated the firmware but still the problem continues. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Markanna

Hi This problem may occured because the connector between the camera's main board and the ccd sensor in the lens assembly becomed loose, or got dirty or something that is preventing it to make a good electric contact to the mainboard. As a result the camera hangs out when powered on (because at this time the sensor is powered on and the lens are being focused) and after taking a picture (because when you actually taking a picture the sensor sends informations back to the main board's processing unit). In any case either of this or something else will require authorised service intervention as these camera are delicate equipment and their repair needs specialised hardware or computer programs to run diagnostics.

Will filters I have from old Nikon film camera fit or work with my Nikon Coolpix 8800? (I have heliopan filters) Thank you!

filter size of the Coolpix 8800 is 58mm, you might find single piece adapter/converter rings on ebay...... assuming the Heliopan's are 77mm.... try searching "77 58 ring" but you might have to get 3/4 rings to bridge the difference. Eg. 58-62mm, 62-67mm, 67-72mm, 72-77mm

Problems with the nikon coolpix 8800 vr camera

All I can tell from here is your battery is nearly dead. If you can connect it to a computer and you can see the photos on it then I would say you have a really old or bad battery or the battery is missing.

I have a Nikon Coolpix 8800 with a "System Error 2"

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

Nikon Coolpix 8800 and VISTA Ultimate 64

in Vista Nikon Picture Perfect is not a requirement   Any photo software will do.   I remove my chip and insert it into my printer to upload photos manually as though it were a hard-drive   i used to use the firewire and leave the chip in my Nikon d70s and let windows or the photo software of your choice offer to upload the photos for me.  Try Picasa or ACDSee Photo Manager and ACDSee Pro    peer to peer sites or torrents share these with cracks/serials for you to explore Picasa is free online

Coolpix 8800 shuts down

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
