Question about HP Photosmart M417 Digital Camera

HP photosmart M417

I went to view the pictures I had taken the day before and the low battery indicater came on and the camera turned off. I replaced the batteries but the camera kept turning off. I replaced them again, but still the same problem. I tried to see if maybe I could upload them, but the camera would turn on then turn off. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Y

Re: HP photosmart M417

Hi yban, Not sure if this will solve it but many times such problems occur from 2 reseaons A) loose parts in the battery compartment - causing cutting electricity. See if you can detect any problem there. B) when the memory card is damaged or not well placed. Try running it with an alternative memory and see if the problem reoccurs. Let me know if this helped. Thanks, D.

I have kind of inherited a hp photosmart m417 camera and I do not know how to download the pictures from it to my computer? Am I missing a tool to hook up to it?

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.

I have a memory card that hold 700 or so pictures,

It could be, that what you are seeing, is the INTERNAL memory is being taken up with your pictures. Connect your camera to your computer with a USB cable and you will probably find them.

HP photosmart M417

My M417 that I just got at a garage sale works fine but when I put a set of freshly charged NiMH batteries in it will only work for a couple of minutes before the camera will say they are dead and shuts down. When I test the "dead" batteries they each have over 1.25 volts and flow over 8 amps through a dead short (the meter). I have upgraded the firmware. Any ideas?
