My nikon coolpix p520 won't turn on

Specs: Macintosh
Hello! I have a nikon coolpix p520, and it won't turn on. It is a couple of years old, but it has always worked perfectly fine. I got a new battery and then it worked again, but now it won't turn on yet again, even if i charge it over night. When I charged it it beeped on the light turned on, does anyone know what I could do to make it work? I really need it this summer...

Generally it seems that the Nikon Coolpix series (and possibly one or two others from Nikon) are prone to sudden death failures...

Nikon cameras appear fairly often with the problem - "it won't switch on..." - and as best I can recall there is seldom a fix... Possibly a Nikon dealer or service depot may be able to help; but invariably the cost of repairs these days almost outweighs the cost of a new/replacement camera?

I had the same problem and I went to

I download new firmware from Nikon http://downloadcenter.nikonimglib.c...

My old one was 1.0 the new firmware is 1.1 so I downloaded new firmware as zip file to my desktop,then I click on it and its open as folder,inside that folder another folder call "firmware" and I copy that folder and paste to sd card that I was using inside my p520 Nikon camera.Make sure that You format sd card by Your camera before You connect it to Your computer/laptop.After copy that firmware to my sd card<i put it back to my camera and switch on and I follow instructions as I pposted in Youtube link above.
Now my camera is working and switch on and off without problems :)
I hope that my information will help :)

That's all well and good if the camera still works but the OP said their camera won't turn on. How are they going to upgrade the firmware or format the SD card in the camera if it won't turn on?
