Yes.  It has a port for a 7.4v DC supply.  Looks to be about an 1/8" socket.  I'll have to go through my mountain of wayward wall warts and see if I don't have something that fits...
Or do you suppose there's a source for such things to power a camera that's well over 10 years old?

EBay?  Worth a try . . .

That is exactly how I use my Nikon CoolPix 8700.  But I bought my genuine Nikon Wall-wart when the camera was still new, expecting that I would have long photo sessions of model  photography, with the camera mounted on a tripod.

Are you using rechargeable batteries?

Here's one.

I'm sure there are others out there.  Maybe even OEM ones on eBay.

I guess I could have done that, but thanks!  It's ordered and on the way.

The problem with the rechargable batteries is everytime you take them out you have to go back manually reset the time/date stamp. 
While that's not mission critical to taking the pictures, it's a pain when I upload them to a gallery and they get filed under 2006.

Keeping it on the plug in close proximity to the layout will be useful in making that chore less frequent.

There's a separate CR1220 "coin cell" battery that powers the clock.
Maybe that battery needs replacing?
It's in a little slide-out holder inside the compartment for the AA batteries.

You guys that read the manuals are really something.

I, on the other hand, am a Man of Action.  No time for fine print or exploded parts diagrams!

(I found it... thank you!... now I have to go to hunt down that particular battery!)

I've found that if you drop complex items (like cameras, or model trains) from from a high enough point onto a concrete surface there is plenty of action and no need for an exploded parts diagram.

I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that.

Your local Walgreens should have it in stock.

Most pharmacies, supermarkets, or even dollar stores carry a decent range of coin cells.

Did you check the websites for any of those stores to see if they actually stock a 1220 type/size battery?
I did, and checked for local inventory, before suggesting that Lee go to Walgreens.
