Hi, can anyone help me, my Nikon CoolpixP510 battery won't recharge, it has been charging now for 6hours and the camera still won't work (I dont know if it is the battery or camera). I recharge the camera with the USB cable attached from the camera to the plug. When connected to the mains it lights up and flashes quite fast. It was taking pictures yesterday no problem, I have only had it 13 months.
Is it the original Nikon battery?
All I can tell you is that i've never charged mine that way, in my case I got a second battery and charger from Duracell direct ( I have no connection with this company by the way ) as it's always worth having a spare battery when on a shoot and have never had a problem so it may be worth considering, I hope this has helped in some small way.. Good luck!
