Question about Cameras
Have you ever seen a HP Photo Smart 315 Digital camera
with the error code ERR 204. My camera worked great for the first year,
then started coming up with the error 204 flashing in the top Display.
It locked up when this happened. It has been collecting dust for a few
years now. I contacted HP and they told me to send them $300.00 and the
camera and they would repair it. I only paid $200.00 for it when I
bought it on sale.
I have looked for years on the net for a solution and can't find one anywhere. I can't find anyone with the same problem that I can remember. The HP website was no help at all either. I even took it apart and thought that they might be a way to reset it but could not find anything. I will understand if you do not know the answer. I have found some things on here that I could not answer. We can't know everything.
I am not familiar with this error code for this camera, but for other HP camera models this error code would mean you have an imaging task error which means you either have a corrupted file on your memory card or your memory card needs to be formatted. I would try formatting the camera first, but remember this does delete any images on the card so upload any you can to your computer first. If this doesn't work I would try resetting the camera back to the factory settings by removing the batteries (with the ac adapter not attached to the camera) for at least two minutes, and then reinsert them. After resetting the camera you will need to reset the cameras' date and time. I hope this helps!

Oh yer, you are correct. They are in alphabetical order too. Still does not mean that I to have anything to do with them. I have all catogories selected for access to chat as I can still talk someone through an owners manual... thats about the depth of camera fault finding required to capably conduct a chat session. I dont propose to fix cameras. HOWEVER, I used to fix camcorders as a sony service agent for 14 years. But digital still cameras... I have already told you.
Pull back on the solicitation there mate... I dont want to visit your site. nor contact you outside of FixYa. If you have anything to say, then please do so in the lounge... and I will try to be more polite in future.
