I have a Nikon P510 And I'm having an issue I need help,

Customer Question

Hey I have a Nikon P510 And I'm having an issue I need help
JA: What's the make/model of your camera? How old is it?
Customer: Nikon P510 Around an year
JA: What happened right before this popped up? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: So basically I put my Camera to charge as it was exhausted. The green beam kept blinking faster than usual. For about an hour or two which should have consumed some juice but when I took it out from the charger. And switch it on, it doesn't turn on.
JA: Anything else you want the camera expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No

Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

How long has the battery or batteries in the camera been in-use? If over a year (roughly), then you might possibly have a battery/batteries that are getting weak. Rechargeable batteries do get weaker with time, and eventually fail to deliver enough power to start up a device like a digital camera; they then need replacing. The replacement battery needs to be charged up for 6+ hours before its first use, owing to its having been on a shelf for a considerable time.

How old is the camera? in months or years since you bought it.

Has the camera been dropped or otherwise subjected to mechanical shock(s) in its lifetime?

Has the camera been operated in or subjected to, temperatures below 32 degrees F (freezing point) or above about 100 degrees F ?

Has it ever been subjected to a humidity higher than 85 % or gotten wet ?

Has the camera been operated in a gritty or sandy environment, such as a beach, a seaside, a construction site, or the like?
