Question about HP Photosmart M425 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Can do everything BUT take a picture

My husband told me he accidently dropped soda and the camera got wet, not much though. Everything works but the ability to take a picture. The camera turns on, I can view pics, add borders, but but when I push the button to take a pic nothing happens. When I try to set a timer to see what it does it says it cannot do it while the camera is docked...I'm not good with things like this so I'm not even sure what that means.

I purchased a nikon coolpix camera a few months back, when purchasing i was asked if i wanted the plan, i asked what it covered and the associate said everything, i told him my 2 year old broke the last...

Well, I would take the Nikon Coolpix camera back to the retailer that sold it to you and ask to talk to the manager about this discrepancy.

Apparently, it says in the fine print that when you purchase a Nikon camera, and it is dropped, that the extended warranty doesn't cover this.

I would tell the retailer that the associate told you that 'EVERYTHING' was covered and you were under the impression that it covered dropping it as well.

I would tell the retailer that you will report them to the Better Business Bureau for misleading statements by a salesperson and see what the manager tells you after that.

It's true that extended warranty plans cover normal wear and tear items, and not abuse or misuse as indicated by dropping it accidentally or getting it wet in the rain, but I would ask the higher ups at the retailer about the warranty being honored since you paid for it.

I hope this helps you out.

My camera got wet

If one drops or gets a camera wet, it unfortunately voids the warranty because cameras nowadays are sensitive to such accidents.

The water could have destroyed the connection to the LCD, or blown a chip that is responsible for broadcasting the image to the LCD.

Canon G10 + can of Coke...what can I do?

Chances are you did create a short circuit. But, even if you would have given the camera a week to dry buried in a bowl of dry rice, the stickiness and the acidity of the soda would have continued to cause even more damage. Unless you're willing to spend some serious money to fix it, I would consider another camera and a more careful lifestyle.

Canon A630 screen black

Turns out my husband must have pressed a button by accident. The bottom left button says "disp" for display. Pressing that fixed the screen!

Water Damaged

ok there is one fix that i used with my canon sd700
again, it dropped it in the water and it stopped working
i took of the screen and changed the batterey wattage to 65w instead of 45w using a zxd breaker
then the "hotfix"
i pit it into a oven for 30 sec to get all compo. hot and then let it cool
i pressed the power button, and it worked!!
bad thing is the battery lasts about 5 or 6 hours only because of wattage change!

Dropped the camara,it turns on & everything works EXEPT capture button

Unfortunately, as you have found, the cost to repair these cameras is usually not viable, as it is cheaper to replace the camera.

Even if it is repaired, often the impact from being dropped can cause small fractures in boards or loosen the optics and while they may work ok now, can continually develop faults later.

My advice would be to replace the camera, as you will also get a new warranty as well.
