Question about HP Photosmart R707 Digital Camera

Open Question

No reaction anymore

After thirteen month of excellent operation, the camera unexpectedly stopped the operations from video recording mode, retracting the lens. The red light indicator for video recording remained "on". From then, none of the camera's buttons or combination of buttons pressed showed any reaction, the camera is "dead". Initializing the software didn't help, removing and replacing the battery by a full one didn't help. When a fresh battery is inserted, the red light gets on for a while, then starts weakening and extincts. A couple of weeks before the breakdown, I'd upgraded the software by the new release as strongly suggested by HP, including the detector in the case you want to charge inappropriate batteries. The HP service center in Bangkok (Thailand) claimed the engineer had found it needs a new processor unit (although the mail messenger confirmed the staff had not even touched the camera). As we know by the newspapers, HP is closing service points and dismissing staff... Maybe someone had similar problems

SOURCE: Flash Will Not Operate

Flash doesn't operate from various reasons. Try to reset your camera if you find in the instructions manual a procedure like that. If it doesn't work here are some possible reasons. The flash works because a power inverter will charge a capacitor at about 350 volts. These are required to make a small lightning inside the flash tube. If the capacitor is damaged it will not charge, and the flash woun't work. If the invertor is damaged, it woun't charge the capacitor, and without those 350 volts the lightning inside the flash tube woun't go on. If the components that links the the camera's internal processor to the inverter circuitry doesn't work because of some failure to those components, again the inverter woun't work. Any shortcircuit or open circuit or imperfect contact can result in this. Even if the camera's firmware was corrupted in some way it could fail to instruct the camera to charge the flash circuitry. As you can see there are many reasons for that but only a service center can make the correct diagnostic. It isn't adviceable to dissasemble de camera yourself and tamper with the invertor circuitry as you are exposing yourself to those 350V. You may get some nasty electric shocks or damage other components. Therefore, I think the best aproach to this problem is to have it diagnosticated and fixed by a specialised service facility.

SOURCE: HP photosmart R707 camera does not turn on and charge

I Recomend you to charge your camera before it reaches the lowest level of charge displayed in the LCD Screen This might help the camera to turn on again after long usage but this is something you must take in consideration before it gets ruin but if it is already ruined and you have good luck you might be able to turn it on again and then you shall follow my advise.

SOURCE: HP 945 lens stuck out, red light on steady, white screen

Hi,
Ok, here's a couple of long shots to try...
If there is a backup battery remove that also and let it sit for some time with the power switch in the on position (if it has one)
also check the battery contacts are clean. Refit both batteries and try again.

Beyond that unfortunately it sounds like a main board failure. If you have any warranty on the camera return it, if not its likely the cost of replacement would be fairly high but worth checking with HP.
If your handy and fancy a go at it yourself it may be worth opening it to check nothing has become dislodged, but this is unlikely. else pick up a faulty one off ebay, one with a broken LCD or lens and have a bash at swapping the main board out yourself.

A WARNING ABOUT OPENING DIGITAL CAMERAS THEY BITE
Before opening a digital camera its recommended you let it sit for some time (like a week) with no batteries in. There ia a large capacitor (like a battery) which can be charged up to 300v if you touch the contacts or anything connected to it it really is like a shock from the mains.. I have been bitten many times...
This can damage the delicate parts within because of high voltages but more often because you almost always drop the darn thing..
Best of luck

SOURCE: hp photosmart R927. No power, no operation, no LCD, battery good.

Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

If this response helps, please take a moment to post a rating for me. "Very Helpful" would be appreciated.

I recharged my camera using 5 volts nokia charger to my camera which has 3.5 volts battery only then what happened is whenever my camera on it will suddenly off while the lens/zoom is extended.. pls help.


The camera requires power to extend or retract the lens. The indicator of a low battery is your only notification that a loss of power will stop all functions of the camera. The camera should only be charged or operated with the manufacturers recommended power supply. The increased voltage as well as incorrect Amperage may have adverse reactions, such as you are now experiencing.

Hi, I have a pair of sunglasses,ie;mobile eyewear recorder and I canot understand how to operate the camera. The instructions are very unclear. The mp3 audio operates properly, however I'm not sure which...


the interface is slow and push/hold style interface... hold is either 1 second like volume, or 3 seconds like power on off... you will also find that the time intervals for things to react is about the same except is 3 to 7 seconds but that is only moderately annoying. also just so you know the mode button automatically changes you back to MP3 Player mode, but that is only the first time you press it while on another mode. the camera has a 7 count between picture taking capabilities and takes pictures with the camera mode button as the shutter (picture taking button). the video has a three second delay before you start recording but then it works ok.

Recent 'operation unexpectedly terminated' issue


Usually this has to do with an large attachment, reoccuring appt., or corrupted date record in Calendar. Do a search for a file on your computer called scanpst.exe. Run it and point it to your Outlook.ost file location. It will diagnose and correct any errors with your Outlook Mailbox, and hopefully correct this issue. When you search for the files, bu sure to look in hidden files as well.

"Invalid Video Found" HDR-CX7 and VRD-MC5 DVD Recorder


The same happend to me. The camera contains informations of videofiles, which are no more present on the camera (were deleted from a computer). You are not able to record in full disk mode, or any other mode, which includes these videos. These missing files can be easily recognised, as the camcorder is not able to play them. Try to get rid of these "files", or ommit them from the recording list.

Format a cd


First some explanations:

The Canon DC210 will only take 'minus' format DVDs (DVD-R, DVD-R DL and DVD-RW). Only the DVD-RW must be formatted (initialised) before use. During initialisation you'' be asked whether you want to initialise the disc in VIDO mode or in VR mode.

VIDEO mode: Once finalised discs recorded in VIDEO mode can be played back in most common DVD players, offering the best compatibility. However, recordings cannot be edited (deleted, rearranged etc) on the camcorder.

VR mode: You can easily edit the recordings on the camcorder. However, discs recorded in VR mode can only be played back with DVD players that are compatible with DVD-RW discs in VR mode.

My preference is Video mode - I can then play the disc on a DVD player and edit it on a PC.

Now, to initialise a DVD-RW

1. Press the 'FUNC.' key
2. Use the joystick to select 'MENU' - it's in the bottom left corner of the screen
3. Use the joystick to select 'DISC OPERATIONS'
4. Use the joystick to select 'DISC INITIALIZE'
5. Use the joystick to select either 'VIDEO' or 'VR' mode
6. Use the joystick to select 'YES' to confirm your choice
7. Use the joystick to select 'YES' to start initialising the disc

Close the menu only after the screen display returns to the 'DISC OPERATIONS' menu.

Don't forget to rate this solution once you've tried it !
