Question about HP Photosmart M517 Digital Camera
This is a weird problem. On my m517 camera, I inserted a fresh set of re-charged batteries and turn the camera. The lens will not extend out and all I see is black. However, when I connect the camera to AC power, the lens open and the camera is fully functional.
Try cleaning the battery contact inside the camera batteries slot.
Also test a different battery, possibly a battery pack that you tried on a different camera.
If that does not fix the problem, then there is a faulty component iside the camera, usually you get this kind of problem because of a faulty camera, or oxide on camera batteries contacts.
