Hi there

you can try and insert the card while the cam is turned off and turn it on. it will detect a change in the card and the cam will reconfigure the card so that it will be used. hope this helps.

The camera says that the batteries are too low to take pictures. Even when known good batteries are installed the same message comes up. Any ideas?


Hi
Give the batteries and contacts a good cleaning with a Q-tip moistened with rubbing alcohol.

It worked for me.
Hope this helps you out.

Is my hp photosmart m537-001 compatible with kingston micro sd adapter?


Make sure you're using a microSD card, 2GB and smaller, and not a higher-capacity microSDHC card.

When I turn on my hp Photosmart M537 the screen reads CARD LOCKED and I am unable to do anything on it. I dont recall locking it or putting a password in my camera.. Is there any thing I can do to fix it.


Hello

OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.

If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Andrea

The message said "card locked" so I bought a new memory card after several attempts to fix it. With the new card in, the message now reads, "card unreadable"


Make sure you're using an SD card, 2GB and smaller. The M537 won't work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Can my hp photosmart m537 be used as a webcam, and if yes how?


No. The m537 was designed as a camera, storing images (and videos) to a memory card, not to stream live video to another device.

That probably wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.
