Question about HP Photosmart 733 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My camera stopped working!!!

I turn it on, and I see the top with all the symbols, but the lcd does nothing, the lense doesn't even try to come out, no sound. The right light in the front might come on for a sec, but thats it. I can't believe it died! I have had this camera for like 3 years. That is a horrible shelf life! Can anyone help? Is there a way to reset it or something?

Camera will not charge, shows blinking orange but will not turn on... when it does, it's to a "battery exhausted" screen or the lcd display with a low battery symbol. Also doesn't show on...

It could possibly be the battery or the charger itself.Try purchasing the charger it self.Use the old battery to see if it will charge it. If it does not charge you may have to purchase a new well.

Sony Cyber-shot Error Code E:61:00


you may have these symptoms,
Symptoms :
  1. After pressing the power button in capture mode, the lens would extend and a slight humming from what appeared to be the auto focus motor could be heard for about 5 seconds. When the motor stopped humming, the camera would beep and display E:61:00 in the LCD Screen.
  2. Camera would extend the lens but not be able to focus on anything past 8 inches or so.
  3. Zoom in and zoom out would not work.
  4. Playback mode and the Setup mode was not affected.

To fix this problem,

Do these...

A) Put the camera about a half inch from a hard surface.
B) Let the lense go out and hit the surface and retract a little bit. Let it go out all the way when it tries the next time.

If that doesnt fix it, try this:
A) Turn it on and let the lense go out fully
B) See where the lens comes out of the camera? The little round crack that surrounds it? Wiggle the lense a bit and blow in there a bit. (Be sure not to blow on the lense!)

Now turn it off/on again, and it should be fixed!

If not, try these steps a few more times. If still nothing, then I suggest you to call Sony, but this DID work for 90%, so hopefully it''ll work for you :)

Thanx for using fixya,

I have an olympus digital camera fe-170. when i turn on my camera, the lense come out and the LCD screen is black, when i try to turn it off, it doesnt turn off, but after like 10 seconds it turns off by...

The lens is bad, needs to be replaced. Maybe purchase camera on ebay with broken LCD but good lens. Replacement can be time extensive. Will need #00 or #000 phillips screwdriver and solder iron. Remove 6 exterior screws+2 inside battery door. Take off front panel, remove top screw holding back panel; remove back panel. Remove 2 screws(left side top & bottom)from LCD, unplug LCD by flipping hinge up on plastic connector, pull ribbon. Remove 6 screws along outer edge of electronic board + 2 screws behind lens. Unsolder 2 battery connectors near top right side(do not melt or burn ribbon in between them). Disconnect ribbons at top right and on left edge of board. Flip board over to the left side carefully as it's still connected by 4 thin wires. Remove 3 outer screws holding lens, remove lens. Replace with good lens. Assemble camera in reverse order.
Good luck and be CAREFUL!

AF and shutter release failure

There was a lot of discussion of this when the Mk II was new. Many people "fixed" it doing just the things you did. Also, some reported that mounting the lens on another camera "fixed" it. IIRC, in the end it ended up being a lens issue. IS module. Canon can repair.

Pentaxs50 turns on lense does not extend memory full displays on Lcd then it turns off.

throw it in the garbage and get a less expensive Samsung digimax s500 for less with better quality and features.. What a mistake in purchasing a Pentax. I wrote to Pentax for I had the same problem. Answer, send it in for repairs with a cost if it is not undaer warranty. Not even a hint as to what may be the problem from them! Pentax, No thanks!
