Question about HP Photosmart R707 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera won't turn on.

My HP707 will charge the battery while in the camera and work fine for an hour or so. Next time I try to turn it on nothing happens(even if I haven't used it)! If I plug it in again it works fine. I have 2 batteries for it, one new and it works the same with both. The green battery light shows it is fully charged. Seems that the plug in gives it a kick start as it will work again for a short period.Still shows fully charged.Also, when first turned on, it asks about the time being correct. Ideas? Thanks

Make sure the battery contacts are clean. The rechargable batteries looses their charge even when they are not in use. It is important to fully charge the first time the rechargable batteries.

Camera wont turn on after charging the battery

Bruce, you didn't provide a lot of information but I can tell you that the few times this has ever happened on my Nikon D-90, the battery did not charge, would not charge and I had to throw it away, or it was a charger problem.

I've had it happen when I tried to charge it on my corded Nikon Charger and I never got a charging complete indication after charging over night. When I put it in the camera, the camera indicated it was not charged even though the charger indicated it was charging. But, when I put it on a travel charger, it charged in about an hour and worked fine. The next time I put it on the Nikon charger, it worked fine.

I suggest you verify that the battery is good and charged or capable of charging. If it is, then check to make sure the battery contacts are clean both on the battery and in the camera.

If the contacts are clean and you're sure the battery is good and charged, I'd say the next step is to contact Canon. I've heard their customer service is very good.

Nikon s6300 won't turn on

Coolpix Cameras are tricky to use with chargers. I will assume your USB Charger EH-69P is 100 - 240V 50/60 Hz so it CAN work in many places around the world with an adapter. Do not go over 240V or you could damage it.

These cameras like to have the power supply connected when it is on to charge - meaning if you have it connected and you plug the charger in the wall it will NOT charge. So if you plug the charger in the wall first and then plug the cable in the camera it will work. The camera is actually ON when it charges and I never REMOVE the memory card when it is ON.

When you have a dead battery. Plug the camera in and make sure the ON LED lights and the Charge LED flashes. Then don't mess with it. Let it charge completely (Charge LED stops flashing and is OFF) and then unplug it. It will turn off. Then later you can turn it on.

I put a new battery in my camera charged it. Used the camera till the battery ran down. Now it won't charge . This is the second battery I've bought every time I try to charge it won't charge.

It takes over 7 hours to charge, so did you leave it charge overnight?

But while the original battery is chargable, disposable replacements are not. Here is what the manual says:

{ ...
The supplied battery is a Li-ion battery. It charges while in the camera using the supplied charger. The camera can also use a Duracell CP1 disposable Li battery, which has the same form factor as the supplied Li-ion cell. HP claim the Li-ion cell will provide power for approximately 200 shots under "average" use and 100 shots with "extensive use of the LCD and flash".
Charge time for the battery using the supplied charger and in-camera charging is 5-7 hrs for a fully depleted battery. In the optional docking station, charging takes 2.5-3.5 hrs and using the optional rapid charger, charging takes 1-2 hrs. ... }

I have a Panasonic DMC-FZ30PP digital camera. I used it today and it worked fine. I turned it off and turned it on 1 hour later and it was dead. There is nothing in the way of a screen or even a beep. ...

Cry. Check with Panny to see if there is any sort of reset that you can perform to the camera to restore operation. If nothing , then your camera has died prematurely. Not a good thing but it happens.

Why won't my canon powershot sd1100 is camera turn on

So your power shot has gone south. Shame because they are really good cameras. Unless it is a very ex[pensive model repair is never cost effective.

My cam won't turn on!!!

sounds similar to my problem - after several times of occuring & working again apparently by chance I now think problem is caused by taking out main battery whilst camera switched on causing a software problem - try taking out both batteries for a long time (I did an hour) so camera forgets all it knows including date etc & reverts to factory settings. Make sure main battery is charged & replace both batteries - I did this & camera now seems fine - though haven't tried to recreate fault !

I can't turn the camera on anymore

I dont have a definite solution, but I would;

- clean the power contacts on the battery and the camera with a moist Q-tip

- leave the battery out for a day or so, maybe more if you have time. Make sure the battery is charged again (maybe just put it on for an hour or so) and re-try.
