Question about HP Photosmart 945 Digital Camera

Open Question

HP 945 Camera won't write to memory.

I got a camera without memory stick. I put in one from my Palm one Zire71. I assume it forematted it cause it won't work in my zire71 anymore and id/s itself as HP945. I bought a 1gb. 512mb and 128mb SD cards and tried them... Zilch...Not even format. Camera just had blue screen with HP logo.,and wouldn't turn off or retract the lens.. Opening the battery door then removing the card, closing the battery door and restarting the camera brought up the proper menu and retracted the lens when I shut it off this time, I am going to try HP again but it is out of warranty.

SOURCE: memory card problem

Assuming your camera acts like a removable drive when connected to the PC try the following.

  1. Right click the removable drive(your camera) in my computer and go properties>tools>error checking>tick both boxes>ok
  2. Wait till it finishes and check if you can now view the contents of the card. And copy to safe place straight away.
  3. Try http://www.officerecovery.com/freeundelete/ to recover any deleted files or fragments of damaged files.
  4. Let me know if any of this works.

SOURCE: HP 945 lens stuck out, red light on steady, white screen

Hi,
Ok, here's a couple of long shots to try...
If there is a backup battery remove that also and let it sit for some time with the power switch in the on position (if it has one)
also check the battery contacts are clean. Refit both batteries and try again.

Beyond that unfortunately it sounds like a main board failure. If you have any warranty on the camera return it, if not its likely the cost of replacement would be fairly high but worth checking with HP.
If your handy and fancy a go at it yourself it may be worth opening it to check nothing has become dislodged, but this is unlikely. else pick up a faulty one off ebay, one with a broken LCD or lens and have a bash at swapping the main board out yourself.

A WARNING ABOUT OPENING DIGITAL CAMERAS THEY BITE
Before opening a digital camera its recommended you let it sit for some time (like a week) with no batteries in. There ia a large capacitor (like a battery) which can be charged up to 300v if you touch the contacts or anything connected to it it really is like a shock from the mains.. I have been bitten many times...
This can damage the delicate parts within because of high voltages but more often because you almost always drop the darn thing..
Best of luck

SOURCE: HP Photosmart R967 memory card is locked...

I have an HP R927 and just had the same problem. Take out your memory card. Look on the side of the card and you will see and white "knobby thing" ... make sure it is pushed up ... that should fix it.

H P photosmart 945 can i use with windows 7


Your camera doesn't care what operating system you have on 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 Windows Photo Gallery or any other photo cataloging program.

Does Hp 945 work without a memory card


Yes, but the camera has only 32M of internal memory so you won't be able to take and store more than a handful of pictures. For "real" use you'll need one or more SD cards. Make sure you get SD cards 2GB and smaller, not SDHC cards.

I got a 4gb memory card-SanDisk and the camera says it is unreadable.i had a 512mb card and it worked fine.


Hi Tomcat,

this will not work.
The HP 945 does not support 4GB cards.
4GB (or more) are SD-HC (High Capacity). This is new format which only will be supported by newer camera models.

Forematting a memory card


Take your memory card out and insert the memory card to laptop or desktop and then try to format it . If you are getting any message like access denied then download software called unlocker . You can use this software to access the memory card .

Hope this helps .

I have had this problem with my 945 as well, the only way I could get it to stop was to take the batteries out and leave them out for a while.

HP Camera won't turn on


I had the exact same problem. I turned on my HP Photosmart E317 camera and it would light up for one second and then just a blank screen. Here's the tech support site from HP. Try taking out your memory card and then turn it on. That worked for me. I just put the memory card back in and it works fine. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00709691&lc=en&cc=de&dlc=de&product=445953&rule=2137&lang=de
