Re: wont turn on
Possible failed battery showing fully charged but actually not -or even charger.No reset]
Disconnect from the wall socket- re connect and tell us if the battery is now charging.
If show full- replace battery.
Also tell Sony customer support

I had a similar problem with the P10 not charging via USB, I purchased
mine second hand so it came with no charger just a USB cable. I assumed it would charge
by the USB cable but it did not, the red light flashes but doesn't
charge. Luckily I have an external battery charger for a different
camera i got some years ago that takes a similar battery , the P10
battery didn't fit properly so I had to place it at a 45 degree angle
into the charger making sure the outer contacts were lined up properly
and taped it into place. After an hour it was fully charged and the
camera is working fine. The charger is a 4.2 volt charger. New external
chargers can be picked up on ebay cheaply
Well you mentioned that it worked fine yesterday with the battery out of the box. That should tell you that the camera and the battery are both fine. The issue is likely the charger itself. Try recharging it again, and double check that you inserted the batteries correctly, and that any switches (such as for 2 or 4 battery charge) are set in the correct position on the charger. If this doesn't work, take the charger back to the store for exchange/refund as defective.
Please make sure that the battery is clean and also the terminals within are clean. If you had been using the camera prior to the charging then the camera must work unless if the battery was spoiled by wrong charging. If you can use a multimeter to check the voltage which must be as specified on the battery label. Now make sure that the battery gets good contacts into the camera when inserted. If this wont work then it possible that there are errors within the camera and you need help from the nearest Nikon center.click the link below
with new batterys you may find if quicker to charge them in a battery charger and not in the camera,,,the camera charger is for "topping up" the batterys realy not fully recharging them its so you can leave the camera on its docking port and it will have fully charged batterys in it when you wont to use it,, to fully charge a new set of batterys it could take days,,,,so overnight is to short a charge to recharge them,,,leave the camera on its docking station for a fuw days at least, or use a home charger for your type of battery ie:AAA or AA, both take 16 hours to recharg fully
hiak, I had the same problem with my camera. Try opening the battery cover and pressing down onthe battery while turning on the camera. If the camera turns on you have a poor conection between the battery and the camera.I folded a small piece of paper and put on top of the battery then closed the cover.Its worked like new since.
The camera was working fine 5 days ago. Yesterday when I tried to switch it on, I assumed that the battery was flat so I charged it but when fully charged the camera still won't switch on. i Please help!
I would let them charge til you get an indication that they are done. TV remotes require very little power to operate, while digital cameras need a lot, so that's why the batteries would work in the remotes though not fully charged.
