Same problem, exact same camera... I had fixed it already with a guy who fixes all kinds of cameras and he had to change a piece that wasn´t working, but after a few months the problem started again...

The "solution" entered by andrew_c is no solution at all. The camera has never had to charge the flash before. There is a problem with this camera and HP needs to fix it.

HP not for me!, and my friends not for thee. HP knows this was junk and won't man up and take care of the saps that bought this junk. My camera was junk at 3 months. Nothing at HP of any problems with :"Flash Charging" Solution?, No more Hp!

SOURCE: charging flash

Mine does the same thing...Charging Flash!  I called HP's Customer service, and after 20 minutes of a woman, who could barely speak English, asking me for all my personal information, she told me there would be a charge of $34.99 just to get over the phone tech support!
I am told that we need New cameras, and trust me I will never by anything HP again!

NC10 battery not charging. The charging light flashes as normal but battery wont charge, tried another battery with same result.


Allow 1hour to charge it, if did not charge check the input & output of the charger if its properly insert, if not again off your notebook & charge it, always check if it is charging,
Note: Charging test try on, off, & unuse it allow to full charge the battery before using..avoid low bat your battery when using.

Any time I try to turn my camera on it always tells me to "change the batteries" even when the batteries are brand new.


Have you tried charging the brand new batteries? Often batteries are shipped with little or no charge in them, and need a full charge before use.

HP Camera won't flash


HP wont get your money for another camera period- the have dropped cameras from their line up- in the UK any way.
The precise reason for the non function of the flash is not immediately fathomable - but it is likely non use ,the capacitor that triggers the flash in a full state and not having been discharged could have 'killed' it.
As with pretty well all low end digital camera s'repair' is not an option, only replace.
So off you go and buy a new one- if it is flash you need- but perhaps you can live without it.
So often you see folk using their camera swith the flash popping off when in fact non was needed.

Camera Wont turn on and blue light flashes


The possible answer is that batteries are past thier best now and even a 'full' charge is not delivering enough power. treat your self to new batteries.
