Re: HP Photosmart R 507.

It should not make difference by switching on camera while it is charging. The problem may be in button which you switched on let meknow whether is switch to other options or jammed? One thing You do please remove the battery camera will get off then again place the battery and hopefully if it really hanged the problem will get solved. kindly let me know what happened.

Why wont my HP photosmart R967 turn on battery is new and docking station is fine but it will turn on if connected to docking station

It is likely the battery is not making contact properly or is not getting fully charged.
Check the instructions on battery connection on page 9 and confirm the lights are blinking correctly to show battery is charging.

How do u charge the camera? What does the charger look like?

You can charge the batteries in three ways
1. Using an AC power adapter. Connect the AC power adapter to the camera trough the power adapter connector below the usb connector on the right side of the camera (looking from front). Then connect it to the AC power outlet.
2. If you have an optional HP Photosmart camera dock, plug the camera in the dock and then dock the camera. Same thing if you have a wireless dock.

While the battery is charging, the battery charging light in the camera blinks. Once the battery is fully charged, the blinking light stays solid.

It is better that you read the user manual for the camera. If you dont have one, download it free from the web:

The charging procedure is given with figures on page 6.

Camera doesn't seem to accept a charge Camera

Yes. You need a new battery. I would assume the same. Have the battery checked or try charging it in the battery charging cradle overnight.

HP Photosmart M437 not establishing connection

Consider NOT connecting your camera to 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 any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Error Message

Have you tried resetting your camera? To reset your camera, open the battery cover and you should see a small hole inbetween the SD card slot and the battery release switch. Then use a small narrow object (i.e. mechanical pencil with its lead extended) and press into the hole. You should feel it "click" and then hold it for about 3 seconds. Try restarting your camera.

Note: Please backup all the data on your SD card before doing this.

Hope this helps

Battery Won't Charge

Hey Guest9,
You can try resetting the camera by removing the memory card and the battery, pushing a straightened paperclip into the reset switch inside the battery compartment, and reinstalling the battery. If this works put the memory card back in. Another option you have is to try formatting the memory card.

Go Ahead. Use Us.
