    Yes, I am having exact problem. I dropped mine but only a few inches off floor and not hard at all. I have charged it, reset it, etc. with no resolve. It's just barely over a year old. Help

I believe you should both try checking the door over the lens. Mine sticks open and shut, and when it is shut and the camera is on, I get the red screen and error message.

Two ways: 1. Go into the menu and find "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions. 2..Remove the card and battery...press all the buttons...leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on.

R707 lens open, lcd shows hp, beeps, then turn OFF


Try to reset the camera - remove the battery and press the reset switch for about 5 seconds. Reinsert the battery. If it works while connected to the charger, your battery needs to be replaced.

If you're getting the 18-4489-957-000 error code, then give it a good tap on the corner where the lens cap is. A little tapping and the lens cover should pop closed. When you turn the camera on again it will probably work just fine.

I was just about to junk my camera when I googled the error code and found this very tip in another thread. It worked like a charm.

Camera shuts down at start...pics out of focus sometimes...


Hi, try resetting the camera. To reset it, open the battery cover. You should see a tiny hole right beside the battery release switch. Here's the link for the camera rest: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00598200&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=1154651&lang=en If this does not resolve the issue, you can "live chat" with a HP representative free of charge. Here is the link: http://ipgweb.cce.hp.com/ipgna/caller/chat.asp?dd=camera&productName=HP+Photosmart+R725+Digital+Camera&productCategory=12117&SCOID=82642&PSOID=1155121&aoid=null&lang=en&cc=us

Hope this helps,

Try a safety pin in the reset hole by the battery compartment most paper clips seem to be much to big. Also hold the reset for at least 3 seconds. The first time I tried I just pushed it down quickly and it did not reset. I just fixed my mom's camera with the exact same error. So safety pin and hold 3 seconds. For a diagram of the reset hole see web site1.gif mentioned in jimg's suggestion

check if the little metal lens cover is stuck open.  Mine was stuck open, so I just smacked the camera against my hand and the cover popped closed.  Then the camera turned on normally...
