Hp m417 shutter problem.

What can i do to fix my camera? :-/

the problem is that when i turn the camera on, the shutter doesn't open automatically. i have to zoom in first, then shoot. after that i zoom the camera out and pray that the shutter would work right. if it does, the great. but if it doesn't, omg, my pix would have stripes all over it. the shutter doesn't shut properly i guess...

so again... what can i do??? :(

Re: hp m417 shutter problem.

I had the same problem but it cleared up after a phew weeks on its own awkwardly, but the only advice i can give you is to open it yourself before you start taking pictures.

Won't read sd card - says card not suppoorted

Did you try putting the card in the camera, and using the camera's "format" card option?(Make sure there is nothing on the the card-a format will delete it.) Often times, a digital camera requires a format of the card so the proper file/directory structure can be created. If the card is empty, you have nothing to lose.
