Question about HP Photosmart M425 Digital Camera
This camera is only a few months old but of course the warranty has already expired. i can turn the camera on for a total of about 3 seconds. the screen shows batteries depleted, and shuts down instantly. i have replaced the batteries several times with brand new batteries, but the same thing happens. i have used alkaline batteries but have not tried the lithium batteries. if anyone has had this problem or has any suggestions i would greatly appreciate it.
Try taking the camera to ur local hp dealer and smash it to the ground jump up and down shouting i feel better now ha ha ha ur all nuts michael

Found the problem, and very easy to fix.
It seems that the type of metal used by HP to conduct voltage from the battery cage to the pc board is of a poor quality, and causes extreme volt drop to the pc board.(due to premature corrotion)
The solution is to simply clean the battery terminals inside the battery cage by using sanding paper, or even an emery board for nail sanding.
