Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix 8800 Digital Camera ?
Doesn't switch on

If you have a multimeter you need to test the voltage of the battery(s)
Hello. Remove the battery. then take the eraser end of a common pencil and clean the contacts on the battery plus the contacts inside the battery compartment. Reinsert the battery and it should work. If not, either your battery is bad or your charger is bad. You can take both to any radio shack, or camera store where they should test them for free. Regards, Joe
