  • the firmware version is old
  • the camera has been abused

  • 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:

What size memory card do I need for the 735 camera?


The 735 uses MMC and SD cards. Both types are limited to 2GB maximum. Be careful not to use SDHC cards. While they will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and won't work.

Can not formate my new 4GB SD Card...


The 735 works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work in devices not designed for them. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Can't format 2 GB sd card for HP 735 camera


Make sure the SD card is unlocked. There's a tiny switch on the side. Put it into the camera. Under storage, when you select the card, also select format.

I hate to post without offering a solution and while checking for a possible error code list for the camera, I ran across this:

http://www.digitalcamera-hq.com/digital-cameras/hp-photosmart-735_product-reviews.html?reviewsPage=1

HP once made great test instruments under that name but the average quality of stuff related to computers or digital technology has been mixed at best and often, outright atrocious.
I don't service HP computers at all any more; along with their poor quality, another item that once was among the best, service support has also plummeted.
