I had a similar problem with my HP R837. Maybe this will work. It seems to have worked for me, at least for the time being:〈=en

Just wondering, but are the batteries that you are using new? Because, if they are not or they are rechargeable batteries they dont long for very long AT ALL on this paticular camera, ( personal experience with this camera)

Tried to upload photos from my photosmart E217. it says my camera is in use and it aint.. it wont connect. the cord is in right. how can i upload the photos.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Camera doesn't seem to accept a charge Camera

Yes. You need a new battery. I would assume the same. Have the battery checked or try charging it in the battery charging cradle overnight.

I put new batteries in and it still won't turn on

Try resetting the battery, following these directions. They are for an R837. If these don't work for you, try going to the HP website and doing a search for your particular model and checking the FAQ section.〈=en

Battery problems seem to plague HP cameras! Mine did the same thing, and resetting the battery (not just replacing) seems to have done the trick. See if these directions apply to your particular model. If not, go to the HP website and check the FAQ's for your model. That is how I was able to solve my HP Photosmart battery problem.

No screen

This is an internal failure and the camera has dies. HP support will advise- depending on age of camera whether they replace it or you buy another
