    Did you leave your camera in a hot car or trunk (boot)?

    Several separate sites address Damage code 8807. All seem to indicate that it appears after the camera has been exposed to temperature extremes. Let the camera cool, recharge the battery and do a reset.

    If that is what caused your problem - welcome to the club!

    I think I'd try a couple of things:

    1. If you're not going to use the camera for a week or more, remove the battery.

    2. Clean the battery contacts. NOTE: Do not use a pencil eraser or other abrasive. Household alcohol contains glycerin and will not do a good job. Use contact cleaner, or, if you must pure alcohol or acetone. Apply sparingly so as not to melt adjacent plastic.
