Question about HP Photosmart 635 Digital Camera
I can turn on the camera without any problems a few times. The batteries are just fine. I can navigate around the camera menus. I can take pictures with the camera. I can turn the camera off. When it is time to turn the camera back on it freezes up.
I have a HP 635 which is the third one after the first two were faulty. This model has a known issue where the 'date/time' battery drains power from the main AA batteries until they are flat.
I have applied a solution by Nspektor from FixYa which seems to have fixed the problem: by removing the 'date/time' battery completely.
I would also recommend using 'ready to use' nimh rechargeable batteries (except Energizers NH15-AAs - they discharge quickly in my experience).
I use Varta 'Ready2Use' 2000mAh nimhs as these are the new generation nimhs that hold 80% of their charge for months rather than losing about 1% of charge per day like normal nimhs. 'Ready to use' nimhs are pre-charged so can be used straight from the packet unlike normal nimhs.
If possible I would return your HP 635 for a refund or at least a store credit, and choose a different camera brand.
I hope this helps.
