Questions & Answers for Nikon Inc. COOLPIX S8000

Question

My nikon s8000 recently stopped talking to my computer.

When I connect the camera to my computer the "flash" light starts to blink after a few seconds and the nikon transfer window will not come up. We have tested the usb cable and it works fine. We have also replaced the battery. I can still plug the camera in to my TV to view pictures but cannot get it to respond with the computer. Any ideas?

Before plugging your camera to the computer and it's already ON, first press the playback button. Once it's showing a picture on the screen connect it to the computer and the picture should disappear from the screen. After you transfer all your pictures just turn it off before you disconnect the camera form the computer. Also update to the latest version for Nikon View NX2 from our website:

MEMORY CARD SHOWING PICTURES ON CAMERA BUT WON'T DOWNLOAD

I have taken pictures with my camera and when I go to download/transfer them to the computer i can see some of the thumbnails but they will not open up or they open up all "distorted and unclear" I think I have a “bad” memory card but my question is “Are my pictures gone? And will I not be able to retrieve them off my memory card? “

Please install the latest version for View NX 2 in your computer that will allow you to download the photos and verify the XP version you have. Also, try transferring the photos using the internal memory of the camera.

Question

My camera won't charge on my computer

My Coolpix S8000 camera has been dead for about a month. When I hook it up to the computer to charge, the green light flashes for a few minutes and then goes off. However, the on/off button stays lit up. My computer recognizes the camera and I am able to download the pictures on it. The camera has been plugged into the computer for about four hours, but once unmounted from the computer, still will not turn on. Does this mean I need a new battery?

If you can download the images with the same cable, the USB cable is not the issue, make sure that the "charge by PC" option is set correctly in your setup menu.

Question

My camera will not charge when I connect it to my PC or to the wall charger. If I wiggle the cable in the A/V out slot i sometimes get it to respond.

I tried replacing the cable hoping that was the problem. Unfortunately the problem still exists. I'm thinking the pins might be bent inside A/V Out connection on the camera.

When the battery is fully charged there's no indicator. The battery level indicator will appear on the Top left corner of the screen showing a battery half full, this means its low and you need to prepare to charge it. Once the battery runs out of charge you will get a message on the screen "Battery Exhausted" and you won't be able to take more pictures.
