Question about HP Photosmart M525 Digital Camera
Same problem, wont turn on....
Posted on Oct 01, 2008
I have a kodak cx7430 that one day just wouldn't come on properly. All
I got was a red light, no matter what batteries I tried. So I began to
wonder if this was a ploy of Kodak's to get people to buy new
cameras...I don't know if that's true, but I did find a little switch
in the battery compartment that was open. I noticed I could close the
switch with a pen tip, but it wouldn't stay closed, so I taped it
closed with a piece of electrical tape...and guess what...THE CAMERA
NOW WORKS PERFECTLY.
I don't know if this is true, but I heavily suspect that this switch opens after X amount of use... because I know 2 other people who's cameras have done the same thing...sooner with heavy use and longer with light use....
LOOK FOR THE SWITCH, TAPE IT AND TRY IT!

Had the same problem, replaced the regular Alkaline batteries with NiMH rechargeables and it works. Must be something in the in camera battery settings. It still wont work with regular alkalines. Go Figure.
