Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after dropping it. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful.

Regards
Andrea

R707 Fails diagnostic test 10 (strobe)


I found my answer to this on another board. Remove the battery and SD card. Use a paperclip to press in the small siver dot above the + sign for about 10 seconds. This resets the firmware.  It worked for me, hopefully it will work for you too.

HP photosmart R707 camera does not turn on and charge


if you want to turn it on do a firmware reset:
To do a firmware reset, open the battery bay, remove the battery and the SD card, and then insert a paper clip into the tiny hole in front of the little "+ -" sticker on the battery door. Hold it for 6 seconds, and remove. After this reinsert the battery, and the turned it on this should allow you to do the update

Flash problem HP R707


I've just spent 30 minutes on the phone (premium rate) to HP re this problem. The solution was as follows: switch the camera off take the battery and any memory cards out press the end of a paperclip into a small hole (which you can see with the battery compartment open) remove the paperclip after 10 seconds put the battery and memory card back in and the problem should be sorted. HP also suggest upgrading the camera firmware (which you can do via their website)
