To perform a firmware reset on the HP Photosmart R707 digital camera, open the battery/flash_memory door, and remove the battery and SD flash_memory card. With the front of the camera toward yourself, and upside down, look for a tiny screw next to the battery clasp (holds the battery in place). About 1/4" (6.0mm) to the right of that screw is a tiny hole with a reset button inside it. Gently push a paper clip into it. Some people may feel a very slight click. Hold the reset button for 6 seconds. Place the battery back into the camera, but not the SD card. Power on the camera. Exit the date/time menu. Power off the camera. Place the SD card in the camera. Power on the camera. The firmware is now reset.
Make sure the case is closing fully, espescially the battery door. Remove batteries and memory card, look for tiny hole somewhere on camera labeted "reset". Insert end of paperclip and push lightly.
Reinstall batteries and memory card, try to reboot.
I'm having the same problem with my own HP R707. I'm finding that the only solution is to do a hard reset on the firmware or whatever, but taking the battery and mem-card out and putting a paper clip into the tiny hole in there and hold it for 6 seconds.
It seems like turning the camera on is like playing roulette anymore where one or two or all the buttons will not work, warranting a hard reset. I've updated the firmware and still have the same problem. I'm starting to see why this model is discontinued.
Have you tried resetting your camera? To reset your camera, open the battery cover and you should see a small hole inbetween the SD card slot and the battery release switch. Then use a small narrow object (i.e. mechanical pencil with its lead extended) and press into the hole. You should feel it "click" and then hold it for about 3 seconds. Try restarting your camera.
Note: Please backup all the data on your SD card before doing this.
