Hey, I have the same problem. Try turning the power on and while the lense is focusing out apply some resistance with your other hand. Normally the lense will retreat and you will have to power up again. The problem seems to be associated with the opening and closing lense. You may have to repeat this fix each time you power up but it eventually seems to cure itself. I have taken dozens of pictures since I figured out this fix.

Turn off the camera. Take out the memory card. Wait 20 - 30 seconds and put in fresh batteries. Then try it. It worked on mine.

What does charging flash on photosmart m537 mean?

The flash gun needs to have a high charge available before it can flash - this can take a few seconds to charge fully ready to give off a full flash "flash" As batteries get older and uncharged - it takes longer to reach the correct charge on the flash
Hope that helps

It seems that the Milli Amps on your rechargeable batteries are to low you will notice on each battery it will show the amplitude purchase a higher amplitude.

My digital keychain

They probably designed it that way. I have an MP3 player in the form of a USB Flash Stick. When I plug it in it stays on also. The thing is that USB provides 5 volts of electricty when you plug it in. The picture keychain probably dosent use all of that for charging so any extra is used to power the keychain while you charge.

Hope this helps

Thanks for reading!

Wont hold Charge

When you charge the battery what does it do? Does the red light flash or stay solid? If it stays solid while it's charging then you should be ok. Casio doesn't recommend using any other brand of battery with their cameras because we don't know how they will react. I would say try a regular Casio battery and see if that solves your problems. I know that means a little more money but a lot of times I have seen that solve the problem right away.
