Question about HP Photosmart 945 Digital Camera

Open Question

I have a digital camera type HP945 which has lately given me trouble. Recentlyy, it was stored away for short period whilst it was not in use. Unfortunately, the four AA batteries were left in it during this time. As a consequence, corrosion of the batteries occurred. I have done my best to clean the terminals in the camera and I have replaced the batteries. However, when I now close the battery compartment, I am confronted with the red timer light coming on either at flashing intervals or continuously. The veiwing screen at the rear of the camera lights up simultaneously with the timer light. The on off switch does not function and I can get no read out either from the screen or from the viewfinder. All of this prevents me from commencing shots

SOURCE: Battery life

I bought this type of camera a few months ago.  Instantly I noticed that is wears down batteries.  I would not get to take a lot of photos if I was on a vacation trip.  I have to keep the two batteries on a charger if I wanted to take many photos.  This is disappointing.  I have no solution for you.  However, if someone does have a solution, I, also would like to know it.

SOURCE: Short battery life

Some of The Canon Powershot A530 and A540 cameras are subject to an advisory recall. Seems that a small spring on the battery compartment door can short out the batteries. Suspect this of yours, in that you mention that your batteries aren't lasting long. If your camera is on the list, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following link for more info:

SOURCE: Red light flashes and LCD turns off and on

A guy named David was redoing the bathrooms in my house. He likes to take pictures of his work, and when he went to take final pics, his 945 started doing this. He tried 2 different sets (set=4 batteries that the camera needs) of standard Energizers, and got this error. We tried my Energizer rechargeable NiMH batteries (2500mAh each) and it worked again.

Your camera uses two standard AAA size batteries. You can pick up throw-away batteries or NiMH type rechargeable batteries for it at just about any store.

Can not turn the camara on


Digital cameras drain lots of power for a short period. The best batteries for digital camera are rechargable types. It is either you are using normal alkaline batteries which are easily drained or your rechrgable batteries are not properly charged. Try solving either of these two problems.

Hey jo-dee,
I am assuming this camera was purchased on BestBuy.com because it was shipped to you and the paper you have is most likely the invoice. Digital cameras have a14 day return/exchange period, and if the camera is defective you should be able to bring the camera to a Best Buy™ store and they can return it with the invoice. That being said since this is a gift if you do return it the funds should go back to the person who purchased it. If you are outside of the return/exchange period most digital cameras have a 1 yr mfg warranty and you could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they can send it out for service. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Vivatar 283 and Nikon D70s


The Vivitar 283 was manufactured in China & Japan over a number of years & the specifications did change over this period.

The older Vivitar flashes had a voltage on the shoe which could reach 150 volts whilst the later ones had voltages of only 5 to 9 volts.

If you have, or can get hold of, a small voltmeter then you can measure this voltage.
Turn on your flash & let the unit charge up to 'ready' & connect the meter between the contact in the centre of the shoe & the little contact tucked away in the lip of the shoe. (DC volts not AC) There is no danger to you in doing this!
This should tell the voltage on the shoe of your unit & if it is 15 volts or less, it will be fine with your digital Nikon camera. If more than 15 volts than best not to use it.

Hope this is of some help!

Loss of function


Whilst it is still under warranty you must return it to the seller.
That is your first move - it is their responsibility.
The second is to contact the makers support site and tell them.

Bear in mind price /value not withstanding small electronic devices are replaced not repaired.
