Question about HP Photosmart M407 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Power switch fell off

I have an hp m407. it has been a great camera and we have gotten tons of use. it is starting to show wear. sometimes i take a pic and the screen flashes red and it says error saving image. it randomly happens. weeks would go by without it happening, then it'll happen on a reg basis for a few days. i would just turn cam on and off and it would work fine. hence my main problem. the power button which is a sliding one, fell off. is this something that could easily be snapped back on or something? any thoughts on error saving image? hp tech said my software needed reset. it happens on the camera, not while trying to save it to computer.
thanks in advance

Error the saving the image may require a firmware update to the camera. Go to Hp.com for firmware and instructions on the update.

For the power button, I suggest you take apart the camera: Remove the 5 black and 1 silver screws and case is snapped together from the top. Doing so exposes the camera. Turn the black half of the case apart and inspect your button. The power button should snap back in. Just be careful that it may have (or had) a tab that held the power button in place. This tab may have broken off. Once the button is back in, assemble the camera and screw it shut.

Battery won't charge on my HP photosmart M407. Batteries are new. What else might be wrong?


It could be something wrong with the power board. If you have an external charger to charge the batteries. After fully charged tried to take as many pictures as you can. If the battery discharge fast, that mean something is wrong with the power board.

Card is unformatted


If you have the HP M407, the maximum capacity sd card it can use is a 1gb. I had the same problem and a 1gb card solved the problem. Hope this helps.

I lost the power adapter for my M407 digital camera.


You can purchase a ac/dc adpater with multiple plugs from Radioshack or any electronic store for less than $10. Make sure the votage is 3.3 to 4v that you need. Or you can pay about $30 from ebay. Make sure you take the camera and try the plug on so it will fit in. Good luck -James

My camera will not turn off !!!!!


WOW: All three Solutions Work Fine.
I Removed the 6 small bolts and took the camera apart.
lifted the tape and cleaned the contacts u;nder the tape with alcohol, let them dry then replaced the tape, lineing up the contacts on the tape with the ones on the body of the camera. Put the camera back together and put back the 6 bolts, inserted the batteries and presto: the camera worked. Thanks for the info , it really worked. Wes Reed
