STUCK ON STANDBY

WHEN I TURN ON MY CAMERA IT IS STUCK ON THE "STANDBY" MODE.  I SWITCH IT TO "CAMERA" AND IT STILL SAYS "STANDBY".  I CANNOT TAKE PICTURES OR DO ANYTHING.  I HAVE REMOVED BATTERIES AND REPLACED WITH NEW AND NOTHING CHANGES.

I took the ****** apart and found two spring-loaded black triangular plastic pieces poking out of two rectangular chips about 2mm square, just below the circular piece on the outside of the camera that changes mode – play, video, camera. Actually I found one of the above, because the second triangular piece was stuck in the closed position. A bit of jiggling and voila the problem was fixed.
That was the good news. The other news is that I must now reinsert inside of the shell a black circular piece of plastic that affixes to the rotating circular piece on the outside of the camera that changes the mode. When properly attached this circular piece manipulates the triangular pieces to change the mode.
I think that the likelihood of getting this piece properly aligned and affixed so that it moves the triangular pieces properly when the mode knob is rotated falls into the statistical probability range of pork taking wing. But worth a try.

HP Digital Camera - M425 - Stuck in review mode, won't switch to capture mode


I just fixed my daughters camera with this problem. First go to the capture mode and see if the reason you are in review mode is because the camera thinks it is docked. If so, look at the dock port on the bottom of the camera. ( May need to magnify it to see in there ) Look for any green corrosion between the contacts. Her's has this corossion between two pairs of the contacts. I took a jewelers screw driver and scraped out the corrosion and then blew canned air in there to remove it. Turned it on and now it works fine. I have a feeling that the battery compartment is venting through this port and the small amount of acid vapor produced as the batteries discharge is causing the contacts to get this corrosion.

Stuck on movie standby


The ribbon cable for the top switches has come loose.Undo the four screws holding the LCD screen (two are special--I used the corner of a small flat screwdiver), then gently prise the camera apart and try not to dissconnect the ribbon cable for the menu buttons --it's a pain to get back on again.
Gently ease the ribbon cable for the top switches further into the socket and all shout be well---if it is hard to move flip open the black locking flap on the socket

Camera-video mode


Is it a switch or a dial? have you tried new batteries?have you removed them and let the camera sit with the batteries out over night? The button or mode switch could be bad.
