Hi,
I have a Nikon S8000 (Fully Charged), sometimes it turns off by itself or it doesn't power on until i press the power button 2 or 3 times!
Is anybody here with the same problem? if not what should I do? I did an RMA and they gave me a replacement but got the same problem with the new one :( 
any ideas?

any help would be appreciated.

What does the manual say? Are you sure that this is a problem and not a power saving feature?

NikonUSA has a good "ask Nikon" section - they may be able to provide more details.

This is a pretty new model and even with replacement is probably still within warranty.

If they sent you a faulty replacement I'd raise a stink -- companies often replace with "remanufactured" stock but it seems that some are less than scrupulously careful about checking them. I would be looking for a refund of postage and an offer of a brand new replacement.

Hi there!
I had the same problem with mine and we updated the firmware to version 1.1. I haven't had a problem since then. We went to the Nikon website and found the firmware download and instructions. My husband said it was a little tricky though. Thought there was a step missing from the instructions but he figured it out.
