Question about HP Photosmart M547 Digital Camera
Purchased new April 08, worked fine for aproximately 40 to 60 photos, or aproximately 5 months.
Went to use it and the batteries were dead.
I decided to purchased an "Energizer Charger" model # CHDC7 and replacement Energizer rechargable Batteries Type - AA, 2500mAh.
I installed the new batteries (correctly), and immediately I was able to take 3 photos with in 5 minutes after installing them, and then the battereis were dead, the camera would not work.
I charged up the new batteries per instructions with charger, then reinstalled the batteries in camera, again immediately, I took 4 photos (just trying it out to see if it worked), and again the batteries went dead after the fourth photo was taken.
I recharged, reinstalled again, and was able to take 3 photos..then they were dead again....
I purchased just plain regular AA type batteries, and I can not get the camera to take but only one or two photos..and the batteries are dead..
Point is: Any type battery I use the batteries go dead within 1 to 4 photos and I do have the batteries installed correctly (+ / - ).
The energizer batteries were also installed correctly in the charger (+/-).
Note: I have used the energizer batteries in another camera (Olympus) and the batteries work fine..and I can take many photos.
I have been using the Olympus camera because the Photosmart M547 that I purchased ...is not so smart...it just doesnt work..
Disappointed & Dis-satisified with it completely.
Yes, there is definitely a fault with your camera. You should be able to return it for a replacement. I wouldn't experiment too much with batteries in this camera. batteries discharging this quickly are likely to overheat, causing unmentionable catastrophe.
