Question about HP Photosmart 945 Digital Camera
Fresh batteries and the camera still will not turn on. Any suggestions?
I had the exact same problem. I turned on my HP Photosmart E317 camera and it would light up for one second and then just a blank screen. Here's the tech support site from HP. Try taking out your memory card and then turn it on. That worked for me. I just put the memory card back in and it works fine. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00709691&lc=en&cc=de&dlc=de&product=445953&rule=2137&lang=de

SOURCE: camera won't turn on
I am assuming that the power does not go on or it immediately turns off as it is turned on.
Try the docking station or the 3.3 AC adapter to the camera. Plug that in to live power. If you hear the lens motor (by default the lens is retracted to closed position when plugged to AC power), then the camera is operational. If not, there is power failure with the camera.
If the lens motor work, then try to turn the camera while plugged to AC power. If it turns on, then there is something wrong with the battery or with the chamber. If the camera does not turn on, then check the button board for a bad power switch.
Check the LCD closely under a bright light when you do this test. You may see a faint a flash of display that disappears. I have not figured out what causes this. This would mean that camera power supply is working but nothing is telling for the camera to stay on.
