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.

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

Husband got Christmas ipod Classic wet

Hi what seemed to happen here is your HDD drive got wet and crashed. Yes take it back. Next time this happens the second it gets wet put it in a bowl of white rice. The rice absorbs the liquid and all better. But this time you can't do it. But yes take it back.

Take battery out and place everything in a tupperware bowl filled with rice and put the lid on it. This will dry up all of the moisture.

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.
