  • howiroll Jun 10, 2008

    When I try to power on the camera the blue light turns on for about two seconds, starts blinking and then nothing. I transfered my memory card to the other HP M527 so I could use that one, and now it has the same problem. I think the memory card was corrupted? Can anyone help me?

What can happen is that if the camera sit idle for awhile without batteries, it may take awhile for a camera build up enough of a charge to power on fully. Try new charged- rechargeable batteries. One trick I tried is to hold the power button down until it powers on. The other trick is get the camera to go into its diagnostic screen by holding the flash button down and as the power button is pressed.

One thing you can do is get the AC adapter for the camera. The camera takes 5-Volt adapter, and you get a generic from Radio Shack. Plug the camera in and turn it on. If this works, then turn the camera off and insert new batteries. Turn it back on. Remove the camera from the AC adapter. Turn the camera off and then back on.

I have a motorola blue tooth and I need to pair it to my htc evo.... How can I do that?


Ok, I'll give you a default procedure to put a blueetooth headset in pairing mode: starting with it turned off, press and hold the call button as if you were turning it on, but keep pressing the button until the indicator light is either steadily lit, or flashing rapidly, sometime in more than one color. This is usually achieved by holding the button down for some 6 to 10 seconds. Then, make your phone's blueetooth application search for new devices. After a while, your headset should appear on-screen. Make the application connect to it. If a pairing code (or passkey, or PIN), is requested, enter '0000' (four zeros). If the pairing process is successful, your headset's indicator light should flash some times, and enter the stand-by mode (normally flashing every couple of seconds). Your phone should also indicate that a headset is connected. However if the pairing process fails, after a couple of minutes your headset will quit the pairing mode, Turn it off, by pressing the button until the light goes off, and start the whole process again, firstly trying '0000' one more time, then changing it either by '1234' or '8888',
Hope you are able to sort your problems out soon, but, please, let me know if you further assistance.
Regards, Carlos

Don't know what buttons on back of camera are for.


Besides the auto-flash mode, you can select fill flash, flash off, self-timer, and nighttime-view with or without flash.
Press the MODE-SELECTOR BUTTON until the desired indicator appears on the LCD PANEL.
c3015.gif Fill flash and flash off modes remain selected after you take the picture. To cancel the selection, press the mode-selection button or close and reopen the lens cover/flash to return to the auto-flash mode.
Fill flash
c3014.gif When bright light indoors or outdoors comes from behind the subject (backlighting), dark shadows (especially on faces) may occur. Use fill flash to lighten these shadows.
  1. Open the LENS COVER/FLASH to raise the flash and to turn the camera ON.
  2. Press the MODE-SELECTOR BUTTON repeatedly until the FILL-FLASH INDICATOR appears on the LCD PANEL.
  3. Frame your subject within the VIEWFINDER EYEPIECE.
  4. Partially depress the SHUTTER BUTTON. When the FLASH/CAMERA-READY LAMP turns off and the fill-flash indicator on the LCD panel stops blinking, fully depress the shutter button to take the picture.
Flash off
c3013.gif When you do not want to use the flash, especially indoors where flash is prohibited, such as in theaters and museums, or when you want to take twilight scenes or distant subjects that are beyond the flash range, or capture the ambiance of existing light, use the flash-off feature. Use a tripod or place the camera on another firm support, and use high-speed film because the shutter speed in these situations will most likely be slow.
  1. Open the LENS COVER/FLASH to raise the flash and to turn the camera ON.
  2. Press the MODE-SELECTOR BUTTON repeatedly until the FLASH-OFF INDICATOR appears on the LCD PANEL.
  3. Frame your subject within the VIEWFINDER EYEPIECE.
  4. Press the SHUTTER BUTTON to take the picture.
Self-timer with auto flash
c3016.gif Use this feature to include yourself in pictures.
  1. Use the TRIPOD SOCKET to attach the camera to a tripod or place it on another firm support.
  2. Open the LENS COVER/FLASH to raise the flash and to turn the camera ON.
  3. Press the MODE-SELECTOR BUTTON repeatedly until the SELF-TIMER INDICATOR appears on the LCD PANEL.
  4. Frame your subject within the VIEWFINDER EYEPIECE.
  5. Press the SHUTTER BUTTON. The SELF-TIMER LAMP will glow and then blink during the last three seconds of countdown.
    • To cancel the self-timer selection before the shutter releases, close the flash.
    • The self-timer automatically turns off after the shutter releases.
Night-view with flash
c3012.gif In this mode, the camera balances the flash and existing light exposure so you can take beautiful pictures of people at sunset or at night. Use a tripod or place the camera on another firm support, and use high-speed film because the shutter speed at night will most likely be slow.
  1. Open the LENS COVER/FLASH to raise the flash and to turn the camera ON.
  2. Press the MODE-SELECTOR BUTTON repeatedly until the NIGHTTIME-VIEW INDICATOR with flash appears on the LCD PANEL.
  3. Frame your picture in the VIEWFINDER EYEPIECE.
  4. Press and hold the SHUTTER BUTTON for 12 seconds without lifting your finger. Note: If you remove your finger from the shutter button before 12 seconds, the shutter will time out immediately.
  5. After 12 seconds, release the shutter button to take the picture.
Night-view without flas
c3011.gif In this mode, you can capture the natural existing light of city-night scenes or fireworks at night. Use a tripod or place the camera on another firm support, and use high-speed film because the shutter speed at night will most likely be slow.
  1. Open the LENS COVER/FLASH to raise the flash and to turn the camera ON.
  2. Press the MODE-SELECTOR BUTTON repeatedly until the NIGHTTIME-VIEW INDICATOR without flash appears on the LCD PANEL.
  3. Frame your picture in the VIEWFINDER EYEPIECE.
  4. Press and hold the SHUTTER BUTTON for 12 seconds without lifting your finger. Note: If you remove your finger from the shutter button before 12 seconds, the shutter will time out immediately.
  5. After 12 seconds, release the shutter button to take the picture.

on and steady, ensure that your headset is off before trying
again.
