Dead Charger then! Buy another charger

    This is a puzzle 2 chargers 2 batteries
    and nothing works?
    I cant suggest what more you can to here camera/charger wise

    How do you connect the charger to the power supply
    list all the connections from mains power through charger
    Does the charger have lights to indicate charging /charging computer fro example
    Is the mains connection delivering power[fuses]
    I think this is the way to go there- check everything thats goes to the charger then come back

Won't hold charge so need new battery and would like to know where and how much for a replacement

The Nikon 8800 uses the EN-EL7 battery. One source for the battery is the manufacturer, but they want about USD 66 for one.

My nikon coolpix 8400 won't turn on, I took out the memory card to develop some pictures then I put it back in and then the camera wouldn't turn on all of sudden,it has never done this before! do you...

Make sure the battery is fully charged. If it isn't then charge it up and hopefully your problem is solved. If it is fully charged take it out of the camera for a minute or so then put it back in. Try turning the camera on.

It does not charge, where can I buy a new one?

There's nothing wrong. The camera isn't supposed to charge batteries. If you use rechargeable batteries then you must charge them using a separate charger.

Kawasaki zxr died after a battery

try checking your charging system. i would start with regulator/rectifier. they're common to go out.

Charging problem.. Wont charge battery

The instructions for installing a new alternator usually read to fully charge the battery (12.3 - 12.8 volt range). Otherwise, the alternator will be damaged when it initializes. I have seen some extreme damage result from installing a new alternator with a low-charge battery. The torque required to turn an alternator when damaged in this scenario is unbelieveable!

Vivicam 8400

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.

There is a slight possibility that it's a memory card problem. Try another memory card, or format this one. You could also try to dry the contacts with a dry fabric.

If it doesn't work, send it for service.
