Question about HP Photosmart M22 Digital Camera
How do i fix this it wont even turn on put brand new batteries in it nothing happens
Read 'nightdivers' earlier answer The problem is that there is a small, less than 1 cm rectangular magnet, embedded in the slide cover just to the right side of the "HP" logo and above the "M22" marking, the magnet activates a metallic reed switch on the circuit board when the slide is move to the right to "turn on" the camera and take pictures also exposing the lens. When the slide is moved to the left, the reed switch contacts are off. This would be an easy fix for a camera shop (as long as you tell them what the problem is) and they would not be able to overcharge you with the knowledge you now have... This is a great camera, and would be well worth the fix My addition is: I used a magnetic ended screwdriver and lightly tapped the magnet end over where the badge/logo covers when the slider is opened. hey presto, my camera sprang back into life! reed switch must have just stuck
