    same thing here... just looked at some other postings & there is an update for firmware on - but you have to get the camera to turn ON! Mine will charge a little but I have to play with the connection for quite a while to get it to take - then I have to disconnect it some time soon because the camera gets VERY hot! THEN I have to play with it over & over to get it to turn on... some days it will - others it won't - guess it depends on how patient you are... I really want to get mine back ON so I can see if the firmware upgrade fixes it! Does anyone know? Otherwise I will post as a solution if I get it to work... I really hope it does... I love this camera!

    My HP R707 will not turn on. I can try with a battery or with the power cord, but nothing happens. Following the "reset" procedure does not fix the problem. A red light next to the viewfinder comes on for a few seconds, but nothing else happens. It's the same red light that indicates when a video is recording.

I Recomend you to charge your camera before it reaches the lowest level of charge displayed in the LCD Screen This might help the camera to turn on again after long usage but this is something you must take in consideration before it gets ruin but if it is already ruined and you have good luck you might be able to turn it on again and then you shall follow my advise.

If you want to turn it on do a firmware reset:
To do a firmware reset, open the battery bay, remove the battery and the SD card, and then insert a paper clip into the tiny hole in front of the little "+ -" sticker on the battery door. Hold it for 6 seconds, and remove. After this reinsert the battery, and the turned it on this should allow you to do the update

Continous "charging flash" when trying to snap a picture

Connect the camera to the charger and take the picture. If the charging flash stops after a couple of seconds, it means that you need a new battery.
