"Coolpix S8000 Camera dead?"


Ocean Grove, AU
          

Hi, I have a fairly new S8000 purchased in the US.
The camera is a great little unit......but only last week the battery appeared to die!
I bought a replacement unit, but still can't get the camera to fire up!
Any suggestions.....???

Definitely sounds like the unit is dead. If you're within store return period, get them to give you a new one. Otherwise you should still be in manufacturer warranty (most digital products are 1-year), so call Nikon USA for a repair/replacement.

Edited to add: I just realized you're in Australia. Hmm. Well, forget the store and Nikon USA unless you want to pay shipping, which is likely prohibitive. See what the Nikon regional office in Lidcombe NSW can do. As long as you have a US receipt, they should honor warranty service.

My Plan:

Get out of the car.
Get closer to the subject.
Pick the right mid-tone this time.

Hi, thanks very much....my conclusion as well! Will contact either B&H or Amazon to check out their attitude.
