Hi,

It would seem that this indicates a hardware error. A few suggestions you can try:

  • clean/scrape the battery terminals. you may even need to bend/stretch them a bit to ensure more pressure/positive contact with the battery;
  • the unit maybe need to be jarred. A common solution to similar products and not only with HP models. Pls see this post.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Most camera error messages are for lens jams. Most likely, you will need to replace your camera lens, or find the grain of sand that is stuck in a gear somewhere in the lens mechanism.

Turn off camera. Try to remove the battery for 5-10 minutes. Make sure your battery is fully charged. You can try different battery as well. Try to turn on the camera without memory card.

Does it let you go to your menu?
And if it does then go to menu reset enter password (if need one) and click yes but it will delete everything on your camera....or Take the battery out of the camera for 5 minutes. Reinstall the battery & it should have reinitialized.

else you can go to a repair shop and ask them to reset it for you..

How do you reset an HP R727 camera?It comes up saying it has experienced an error 5555AAAA-61EE-14B-031 as soon as you switch it in. Battery is fully charged.


Hello,
Normaly the repair service reset camera by using special file on the SD card.This file is impossible to find it on the internet.But you can try to update FW maybe it will help to this error message.You can try download lates FW for R727 from google.(Last FW version is 3.02.15).
Then extract exe file and copy FW file to the SD card.Put SD card into the camera and close battery door.Hold Shutter button and power on camera.After FW update is complete just power off camera.Then try it again to swith on.If it will not help the only way is send camera into the repair service.

Best Regards

HP R727 stays on 2 seconds then flashes contact HP


Try holding in the reset button longer then the recommended 6 seconds.

Please help!!


Try a safety pin in the reset hole by the battery compartment most paper clips seem to be much to big. Also hold the reset for at least 3 seconds. The first time I tried I just pushed it down quickly and it did not reset. I just fixed my mom's camera with the exact same error. So safety pin and hold 3 seconds. For a diagram of the reset hole see web site1.gif mentioned in jimg's suggestion
