Question about HP Photosmart 435 Digital Camera
I have an hp photosmart 435 camera. I am using the original SD card that came with the camera. Now I'm getting an unsupported card error on the lcd. My mother in law took it to Walgreens and they put another card in and it still said the same. Is there anything I can do to correct this problem?
Hello, This may be related with the sd card reader in the camera. It's pins doesn't make a perfect contact with the ones on the sd card. In order for your camera to recognise the card only 4 pins can be connected. However in this case the camera will give you this error because it can't acces the card (send information to it or receive) because of the missing pins. It will only recognise it as a card. The camera must be dissasembled and the card slot needs to be checked out for 2 things. One is that it makes perfect contact when a card is inserted, the other is that it gives you the right voltage to the card in order to power up correctly. When it will be checked with a voltmeter it will need to show up some 3.8 - 5.8 volts on some pins (i guess pin 3 and pin 7). These check need to be done in a service center, because dissasembling the camera yourself can result in other problems most often damaging the lens unit wich is a very delicate mechanism. Good luck and please reply if you need more info.
