Question about HP Photosmart M525 Digital Camera
Hi ... I am having a problem with my HP Photosmat M525 Camera ... my camera keeps saying "device not responding" and it does not show up anywhere on my computer. I have connected it to my computer in the past the exact same way (with the USB cable) and I never had a problem before. All of a sudden, this error message is coming up on my camera. I have 'reset' the camera (taken the batteries and memory card out), put them back in and still get the same message. I have also tried resetting the camera to 'disk drive' as well as 'camera' but nothing works. The software is installed on my computer (I can access previous pictures I have downloaded to my computer in the past), but am unable to connect to my computer now. Any suggestions ??? Please help !!!
For Windows Vista, try switching the usb settings on the camera from Digital camera to Disc Drive. This converts the camera into an elaborate flash drive/sd card reader.
I also found that the usb connection on the camera may not be responding. This means that there is something wrong with camera part and it may have to be replaced. Replacing that part is not hard to do, but it is tedious because it involves taking the camera apart (removing the main circuit board from the plastic case, removing the LCD, loosing the lens from the circuit board, loosing the circuit board from the chasis of the camera to expose the mini-card circuit board that operates the AC power and usb cable. Switched this board from another camera (m425, or m525 (same board)) and reassemble the camera in the reverse order of disassembly.
