    My r707 has been on the charging cradle for over a month. Worked perfectly last time I used it. Now has "charging flash" constantly and will not turn off. I tried to remove battery and found it difficult. Finally got it out and found it swollen. I have a spare (also original HP). I inserted it and have the same problem. Camera has been used very little. I did the reset. Still no help. What else can I do? Does anyone know of known problem with this camera?

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.

I have the same problem. I'm guessing that the capacitor needs replacement.

I have a HP Photo Smart R707 with a fully charged new battery and the flash won't work. Keep getting charging flash. Any help on this?


The flash mode has to be set.

There are 5 flash modes:
  • auto - flash fires when needed
  • red-eye reduction - flash fires when needed, but there's a pre-flash to minimize red-eye
  • flash on - flash always fires
  • flash off - flash never fires
  • night - flash fires if necessary (and uses red-eye reduction) to illuminate foreground objects, but shutter stays open to record the background by ambient illumination

Having trouble with the flash on my R707


You need to be more specific. Try to run self-diagnostics tests - press flash button while switching the camera on. One of those tests checks the flash.

The camera turns on and takes pictures but the flash doesn't work. I saw the number 403 on the screen when I was trying to figure out the problem.

You will need a new camera circuit board. The charge circuits have failed. There is no easy fix for this problem, sorry.

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)
