Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

Cannot upload pictures from HP Photosmart 620


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

I have an hp 620 laptop which i bought just recently.It was working ok for the last 3 months until today when i was working, using the battery coz it was 87% charged.The laptop went off just after it...


Compaq 620"?
that charge, data is useless, ill tell you why later.

does the LT run with no battery? never post lacking this fact.
IT must, or the power pack is bad or the PC is bad.(ask)

this is always test 1, if yes, the battery bad.
never seen any battery this old good,
not one.


I guess this is the old Compaq 620 that HP mutated to HP 620
no service tag presented so ,no really good answers possible


"I tried to take out the battery and leave the laptop the whole night without the battery, but still my laptop does not come on. (tried?)
so does that mean the battery is out, or in.? NOW?
try to be clear, as we can not do the simple tests nor watch you do them.
runs on wall power pack, A/C line 19vdc power pack.>?no battery.

IT MUST OR THE PC needs service. (or the A/C pack is weak(bad)
pC is like 2010 year. no battery lasts this long,


if the PC is dead, with no battery , with power pack only used,
then see here, for black screens, or dead BIOS.

Will a SD 2gb memory card work in my hp 620 digital camera?


Yes, any Secure Digital (SD) memory card can be put into your hp Photosmart 620 camera safely. I would not go any bigger than 4 GB due to the limitations of some computers that you may use to download and process your photographs. And, you probably will want to pull off the phototgraphs and put them onto your computer for long term storage or for printing. That camera normally makes about a 1 Mb file for a JPEG image file. It will take a long time for you to fill up a 2 GB card; around 2,000 photographs.

Hp photosmart R927. No power, no operation, no LCD, battery good.


Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

If this response helps, please take a moment to post a rating for me. "Very Helpful" would be appreciated.

HP Photosmart 620......SD 128 Card


Some can't accept a card may be bad or incompatible. And while I asked if you formatted the card "in the camera", you just replied you formatted the card, but didn't spell it out and write "in the camera. Take the card and camera back to where you got it and ask them to show you working or ask for an exchange.

Uploading video: help!


Well, I was looking for the name of the software. I don't think you need to reinstall the software, but you need to read the documentation that came with the software. ...................................... There is a better solution to your problem: Buy a card reader that can read your type of camera memory card. Just plug it into your computer's USB port and Windows XP will see the card reader as being another hard drive. Remove the card from your camera, plug it into the reader. Use Windows Explorer to move the photos and video to your computer. You never have to connect the camera to your computer again.
