From the HP website:
Please, perform a camera hard reset. To do so, follow the steps below:

  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. Remove any memory card installed.
  3. Remove all power sources (batteries and AC power) from the camera for at least 5 seconds.
  4. Reinsert the batteries and close the Battery/Memory card door and/or reconnect the HP AC power adapter to the camera.
  5. Verify if the camera works without an optional memory card.
Hope that helps.

    Did you try restarting it without the memory card in it?
    It's too bad that didn't take care of the problem for you.
    This is also from the HP website:

    If the error message still appears after performing the camera hard reset, please click
    contact hp
    on this page for more
    support.





    CAUSE:


    The issue is caused by the
    Focus Home Sensor
    falling out of its position.

I dropped my camera and now the lense wont retract all the way. a red screen pops up and says "Lens error, try turning the camera off then on again' the lense wont come out, what do i do?


There can be a mechanical break or a lens mounting break due to the fall and so the camera must be opened out to reset the lens hood.
You will need some experience to remove carefully and checck the drive for the dislocation of the motor control.
It can be a visual indicatiion to the fault if looked in and can be removed ,reset or the brokedn part glued into the mount.

Lens error


This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Dropped camera

Batteries


You can try switching over to 2500 mAh Nickel Metal Hydride rechargeable batteries and you will see a difference.
Digital cameras with zoom lens need more power than what can be supplied by ordinary batteries.

Hp photosmart m22 wont even turn on dont no why or how to fix


Read 'nightdivers' earlier answer The problem is that there is a small, less than 1 cm rectangular magnet, embedded in the slide cover just to the right side of the "HP" logo and above the "M22" marking, the magnet activates a metallic reed switch on the circuit board when the slide is move to the right to "turn on" the camera and take pictures also exposing the lens. When the slide is moved to the left, the reed switch contacts are off. This would be an easy fix for a camera shop (as long as you tell them what the problem is) and they would not be able to overcharge you with the knowledge you now have... This is a great camera, and would be well worth the fix My addition is: I used a magnetic ended screwdriver and lightly tapped the magnet end over where the badge/logo covers when the slider is opened. hey presto, my camera sprang back into life! reed switch must have just stuck
