    My digital camera will not turn on. I thought the battery was dead so I charged it for 24 hours and it still will not respond when I press the On/Off button.

If you're getting the 18-4489-957-000 error code, then give it a good tap on the corner where the lens cap is. A little tapping and the lens cover should pop closed. When you turn the camera on again it will probably work just fine.

I was just about to junk my camera when I googled the error code and found this very tip in another thread. It worked like a charm.

    I got the same error code. I tapped it a few times just like you said and it worked for me. Thanks so much for posting that.

    I had the same problem, but it took me many trials to recognize the error code, because it came up only for a fraction of a second! I wanted to report it to HP, but they told me that this modes is now (mid 2011) no longer supported. Then I entered the error code in google and came straightaway to your solution. I tried it, a n d i t w o r k e d!

    Thank You very much!

I had the same problem with my cam. the lense cap was also broken, i mean, it wouldn't close.
I also googled and found that i should to try to get the lense cap to close, by tapping, and my camera would work.
And soo... i failed to get the lense cap out, so i searched a little more and i found a solution: SUCTION! haha it really worked for me.... like trying to **** the lense out. The lense doesn't have to come out for it to work. The error stopped appearing, and I could take my pictures :)

I have error code e106 on my 733 hp camera,whatis that?


CausesThese errors display because the lens will not move. There are several reasons why the camera lens might not move:
  • something is blocking the lens
  • the firmware version is old
  • the camera has been abused
  • foreign material is inside the lensor
  • the lens is loose or completely off the track
SolutionFollow all of the steps listed below.
  1. Perform a power reset on the camera.
    1. Turn off the camera and remove any optional memory card.
    2. Hold the ON/OFF switch in the ON position until the HP logo displays and then disappears.
    3. The camera is now reset. When the camera is turned back on it should prompt for the date and time.
  2. If the camera does not display an error after the reset and appears to be functioning properly, it is imperative to check and update the firmware. The firmware update corrects the lens positioning issue that can cause E104, E105, and E106 errors with the camera.Determine if an update is needed by following the steps below to check the current version of the firmware on the camera:
    1. Before turning the camera on, press and hold the Flash button.
    2. While the Flash button is depressed, turn on the camera. A Service Screen displays.
    3. Located at the bottom of the screen is an entry, F/W.
    4. If the version of the firmware is lower than 1.12, then the firmware update is required and should be performed immediately.
