Question about HP R967 Digital Camera

1 Answer

When i insert the memory card the camera freezes.

If the memory card is in the camera then i can turn it on but only the screen is iluminated and the shutter opens. but no buttons work. and the camera can not be shut off. the only way i can shut it off is by removing the battery. if i remove the memory card then the camra works fine. but the second i put the memory card in the slot then thats when the camera freezes up. the memory card is a 1 gig kodak and is brand new. it has worked fine the past few days. the camera is a HP R967

    Mine is doing that same thing, and I have two memory cards, it does it with both, and it worked fine last time I took pictures. Nothing I try fixes it.

It sounds as if either the file allocation table or some data on the card has become corrupted.

Have you got access to another camera (friends or family) that you could try it in?

Have you got a card reader on your PC? If so, you should be able to re-format the card using Windows. (Go to My Computer, right-click on the card reader icon and select format)

Hopefully this will cure the problem. If not, you should be able to change it if it is new.

I received a new DVR 528. I can work through the menus when the SD card is not inserted. Once I insert the memory card the screen freezes - no buttons work!


Make sure the camera is off before inserting the card. Can your camera use the size card you have or does it have too many GB's? Is the slide switch on the side of the card in the unlocked position?

cameras : My Camera Freezes When I Turn It On Or Take A Picture

P, td, li {font-family: arial, u; font-size:9pt; margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:0px; word-spacing:1px;} If you camera freezes when you power it on or when you try to take a picture, you may have a defective memory card. To test your camera and the memory card, follow these steps:
  1. Power off your camera.
  2. Remove the battery from your camera. If you have a memory card inside the camera, remove that as well.
  3. Clean out any dust or debris inside the battery compartment, and then re-insert the battery into your camera.
  4. Power your camera on without the memory card installed.
  5. Take a picture.
    • If your camera takes a picture, re-install the memory card, and then go to Step 6.
    • If it does not take a picture, your camera requires service. To set up service, click the Create Online Service Request button below.
  1. Format the memory card in the camera, and then take another picture.
  2. Important: Formatting erases all pictures and other data from the card. If you have pictures on the memory card you want to keep, download those pictures to your computer before you format the memory card.
    • If your camera does not take a picture with the formatted memory card installed, replace the memory card.
    • If the issue still persists after you’ve installed a new memory card, your camera requires service. To set up service, click the Create Online Service Request button below

Pentax otio 33lf camera suddenly won't go


Try removing the card and see if it will turn on with just the internal memory--or try different memory card if you have one.
Had a somewhat similar problem with a new 1GB card when I shut camera off while it was still saving an image. Camera would come on, take a picture all by itself and freeze up. After using a couple of other cards it magically worked on the bad card

Camera wont work when memory card is inserted


I suggest you try to use a different memory card. If it doesn't happen again then it's probably a bad memory card.
