Question about HP Photosmart R707 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Pictures are almost black even with flash

My camera has worked fine. I recharged the battery as I always do & when I tried to use the camera all the pictures come out almost black - even if I use a flash. I've tried changing all the settings & nothing seems to make a difference. I'm traveling & don't have an extra battery or card with me. Any ideas?

I'm sure the problem is NOT the battery, try to put the camera in automatic mode or in easy mode. If that doesn't help look if the lens are clean and spotless.

I hope it helps.

Question : What batteries can I use in my digital camera, and how long do they last?
Battery life depends on how you use your camera, the type of batteries you select, and how you handle the batteries.

Your camera is compatible with: KODAK Li-Ion Rechargeable Battery KLIC-8000 and KODAK CRV3 Lithium Batteries: A non-rechargeable battery. (so your battery might be in need of a change)

Using Your Camera

Some features, such as reviewing pictures and using the flash, require more power than others. Follow these guidelines to get the best use of your batteries:
  • Limit the time your camera is in Review mode.
  • Limit your use of the flash.
  • Use the LCD Dimmer or Auto Power Off features, if available on your camera.
  • Transfer your pictures to your computer using a compatible power adapter, camera dock, printer dock, or memory card reader.
  • Check that the latest firmware is installed on your camera. See Software, Driver & Firmware Downloads.
Handling Your Batteries
  • Wipe the battery contacts with a clean, dry cloth before loading it in your camera.
  • When using your camera in temperatures below 41° F (5° C), carry spare batteries and keep them warm.
  • Do not discard cold batteries that do not work; they may be usable when they return to room temperature.
  • Do not allow batteries to touch metal objects, including coins. Otherwise, the batteries may short-circuit, discharge energy, become hot, or leak.

A640 freeezes while taking pictures


Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

CANON POWERSHOT A300


If it's a short, not much that you can do other than try to track down the short location with a voltmeter. But I do have doubts that a short is causing this. The A300 is a notoriously power hungry camera. It's the first digital Canon to use two AA batteries. It takes great pictures, but unfortunately Canon didn't spend much time focusing on battery efficiency in getting the new two battery design out the door. As a work-around, try taking pictures by shutting off the display (press the DISP button) and using the optical viewfinder. Also the camera works best with high power rechargeable NiMH batteries rated 2500mah or better. Very inexpensive NiMH batteries are generally weak, and if no rating is shown on the package or battery, should be avoided.

Batteries not working


Are you still using alkaline batteries? If so, alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pictures in a digital camera. Some may also have reached their shelf life, and though right out of the package may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. If you read the camera's instruction manual concerning batteries, you may see the same recommendation.

Keep in mind rechargeable NiMH batteries will save you money in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may be angry with yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

Camera Ready and Flash


I'f your using alkaline AAs, try using rechargeable NiMH batteries or lithium disposables. Alkalines are very poor at supplying the kind of current needed to recharge the flash. I've found other Samsung cameras to be particularly fussy about batteries, and not always consistently so! Good luck.

Help with s630 Digital Camera


Rechargable batteries actually do not recharge the 100 times advertised. After maybe 10 times they are reduced in capacity noticably. For instance, new alkaline batteries will last me maybe 60 pictures, however the rechargables are only good for about 5. To test this try taking out the batteries, and put back in before you wish to try them, also turn off the flash if it is not needed.(flash uses a lot of power)

Camera Turns off and flashes light soon after turning on then freezes


I have exactly the same problem and I found, that it is probably related to rechargable batteries. If I use normal batteries, everything works fine. Confusing is, that I used to use rechargable ones all the time, but errors started few days ago. I also have two sets of rechargable batteries, but both are useless now. Maybe that camera is getting old and it needs fresh 4x1,5V from normal batteries instead of 4x1,2V from rechargable ones.
