My Photosmart 720 has also just stopped working. It simply won't turn on, with battery or mains power. So I took it to pieces. Inside is a thumbnail battery, labelled "5.5v 0.33f" which tests out at 3.0v DC. I surmise that the purpose of this battery is to remember the settings when the main batteries run out - but it could conceivably have some other purpose, like helping it to boot. Whatever the reason, it has clearly run down and I would guess that the other people on this list have hit exactly the same problem.
If I'm right, and the camera depends upon this very-hard-to-access battery, it is shocking that HP could get away with selling a camera designed like this. It implies that the camera was cynically designed with the expectation that it would be thrown away after (I would guess) five years. How's that for built-in obsolescence ? It *may* be possible to remove and replace this battery without damaging the camera, but there certainly isn't a manual that tells you how... is there ?
