With the battery in, use a small paperclip and stick it in the hole next to the battery compartment. This is a reset button. If that does not work, close the battery cover and give a good medium smack against your leg. I know that sounds crazy but it works about 9 times out of ten with the HP cameras.

What does it mean when a blue light comes on when you try to turn the camera on?

What is the question? The camera won't turn on? Is it the blue light? Or do you want to know how to transfer the photos from card to PC?

Does anyone know how to disassemble HP Photosmart A516 Compact Photo Printer?

Using fine slot screwdriver gently pry off button bezel (where it says "HP Photosmart A516) clicking 4 tabs (2 top, 2 bottom). Next take out 2 T10 screws beside buttons and pry off grey wrap around bezel. Next, take out 4 T10 screws (2 on back, 2 on side). Now you can separate the top half from the bottom half.

My hp photosmart R727 when i plug it into my computer it just says establishing connection but it will never work? Help?

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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

How long does battery last?

Hi dear, the lithium battery will let you take about 225 photos (that's the manual say) but usually it takes less.
You can see the power level in your camera display, that more accurate.
Have fun

Photosmart R727 charging blinks never stop, camera never responds

Remove the battery, connect the camera to the charger and try the camera. If it works, it means you need a new battery.
