Question about HP Photosmart 618 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera stuck in extended lens, but off state

My HP Photosmart digital camera model C618 is locked in a state of extended lens, but not turned on. The on/off switch has no effect. This happened once before, probably two years ago, and I found directions somewhere on the internet to "reset" the camera. Probably involved removing the memory card or batteries, maybe holding down a hidden button or something. Unfortunately, I can't remember what I did, or where I found the instructions. Anyone have a better memory, or a better set of search key words. I can't find it on the HP support site or any other google combination of words. Thanks, Jere

    Found a page on HP Support site titled "Performing a Power Reset" . For the C618 it recommends removing batteries for an extended time to accomplish a Reset.

Remove the batteries. Wait at least sixty seconds before reinstalling the batteries and turning the camera on.


You may want to print out the page or write down what you need to do and stick it in your camera case for future reference.

Good Luck! : )

Lens error please help HP Photosmart M627 Digital Canera


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

Lens stuck in the extended position


i don't think the lens mechanism can be repaired, it may need to be replaced, usually for about 50% of what you bought the camera for. there is a company in new york that carries parts for small digital consumer cameras like this : Camera Repair NYC

Lens Stuck open on Mz67 hp camera Error code Mz60-022


Was this stuck fully open or was the lens partially opened, or was the lens jammed?

The lens can be removed and replaced with another lens from another non-functioning camera (See ebay). The lens component can also be dissembled. Putting the lens back together is tricky because the parts have to be aligned just right for the lens to work. If working with a Jammed lens, extra care has to be considered not to break any of the moving plastic parts of the lens or that part (if not entire lens) is junk.

With the motor detached from the lens, the lens should extend and retract freely. Use this to test the lens when you dissemble the camera. Be careful of the flash board.

Lens stuck in out position


Replace the camera lens. Or take the camera apart, rebuild and clean the lens, then reinstall the camera lens into your camera. Rebuilding is not as fun as it sounds.

Camara wont power up


I have a similar problem where the product stopped working and froze. No buttons worked, replaced batteries seveal times.

Spoke to Hp Customer service where they stated buy another camera??? It was out of warranty for about 2 months.

So I bought a Kodak camera with great customer support and will never buy another HP Product again.

My problem was solved!

Lens stuck out on camera


Sounds like the camera was either dropped or hit with the lens extended.

I had this problem and opened the camera myself and was able to realign the lens. It is not easy to play with the lens but if you have the time it is possible. Just be careful about not losing the screws or touching components unless you have a ground strap to prevent static electricity from damagin the circuits.
