Camera won't stay on - have tried various freshly charged batteries. The green light comes on for a few seconds, then goes back off. Sometimes the logo welcome screen appears briefly but then goes right back off.

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.

The camera's battery died yesterday. I changed the batteries this morning and now I only get the green light to come on, but the light stays on when the camera is off as well

It sounds like your power on button may be stuck, if the ON indicator is always on. That may be the reason your battery was dead yesterday. Try reinstalling your batteries, checking carefully the positive and negative positions, and working your power button several times rapidly to see if it is stuck. If it is still showing a constant ON condition, try the following steps. With the batteries out of the camera, try a tiny bit of rubbing alcohol around the power switch, working the switch rapidly for a few seconds to see if that frees it. Replace the batteries with known fresh ones and try to power up the camera. That may fix your problem. If not, the camera will probably have to be repaired or replaced.

Camera won't turn on

I am assuming that the power does not go on or it immediately turns off as it is turned on.

Try the docking station or the 3.3 AC adapter to the camera. Plug that in to live power. If you hear the lens motor (by default the lens is retracted to closed position when plugged to AC power), then the camera is operational. If not, there is power failure with the camera.

If the lens motor work, then try to turn the camera while plugged to AC power. If it turns on, then there is something wrong with the battery or with the chamber. If the camera does not turn on, then check the button board for a bad power switch.

Check the LCD closely under a bright light when you do this test. You may see a faint a flash of display that disappears. I have not figured out what causes this. This would mean that camera power supply is working but nothing is telling for the camera to stay on.

The camera is recharging the flash. (possible cause)

Solution: It takes longer to charge the flash when the battery is low. If you see this message alot, you may need to replace or recharge the battery. Hope this helps!

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
