Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Take the card out of the camera, and on the card (I believe its an SD card) there should be a sliding tab on one side of the card. This tab will lock the card (much like a floppy disk or a VHS tape) and prevent it from being wrote too. Slide the tab opposite of the direction it is facing and you should be able to use the camera again as normal.

SOURCE: Constant Charging Flash HP Photosmart R927 digital camera

First I'd try turning the flash off, a manual option on nearly all camera's. Take a couple of photo's without flash, and turn the camera off and on a couple of times then turn the flash back on to auto.

If that doesn't resolve the problem, I suggest going to the HP website, follow links to support and/or downloads and see if there's a firmware upgrade for your camera.

SOURCE: Will an SDHC card work in the HP photosmart R927?

No, it won't work unless HP provides a firmware update. Hp has two websites that mention what type of sd cards are compatible with your camera. One says it is and the other says it isn't. I have a HP R967, which is similar to yours. I bought an HP sdhc card from a HP website that said both our cameras could use it. I own several of this model camera, (I bought 3 to give as gifts) and the sdhc causes the cameras to display 'wrong format.' I suggest calling HP's headquarters and asking them to provide a firmware update similar to the one that HP offered for the HP M537 camera and that Casio offered for their older cameras to let them use this type card, which is what I've been doing.

My hp photosmart r927 is very slow when processing a picture. what could cause this?


Several things can cause this. 1. Low battery 2. Memory card almost full 3. "cheap" memory card...too slow at writing data 4. Card hasn't been formatted in the camera for a long time. This will erase it so download any pics to your computer first.

Does the R927 take panaramic pictures? If not, what cameras do you have that do?


The R927 does indeed have a panorama mode, which lets you take two to five pictures and stitch them together using the supplied software. See page 18 of the manual for more.
