Question about HP Photosmart M417 Digital Camera
I took the camera out of its case and the lens was out all the way and the camera was off. I turn the camera on and it shuts itself off. The lens won't go back in.
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.
