This is probably THE single most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Hi i want the date off of my pictures...how do i do that?....I have a hp photosmart m525


The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

Displays lens error when turned on will not take pictures, lens wont open


Any camera repair guy can repair these. A store that specifically sells digital camera can repair these cameras easily. This is actually a common problem for this camera and its cousin, the m525.

I have been tinkering with theses cameras. The lens for the m425 (and m525 ) can be removed and repaired manually. Since I am a amateur, my success rate is about 50%. It all depends on how jammed the lens. If anyone has good technique in manually repair these, I would like to know.

The one good thing is that lens can be removed and swapped out with another from a m425/m525 camera. I would look for broken cameras on eBay, ones with workings lens to replace your non-working lens

Wrong format on HP M425


Just fixed this problem on a M525 camera (same physical construction).

Do a search with M525 and format.
