Question about HP Photosmart 945 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Rainbow colors in screen/pictures

I have a 945 that I received as a gift several years ago. I believe it was purchased used on E-bay. I do love it! But, now there are rainbow colors in my screen and pictures when downloaded onto my computer.

HP says they won't fix it...just want me to buy a newer camera. I ran the 10 diagnostic test (passed all)...what can I do? HP wouldn't even tell me what the problem was.

    I can't afford to replace the camera at this time ($500 or more)...so I'm gonna let my 23 year old son (electronically inclined) look at it when he gets home this weekend...

    Thanks for the help...I couldn't even get the camera shop in town to look at it....they said "we don't work on HP's"....nice....

I received this camera a few years ago as a gift. I used the batteries that came with the camera but when they died I put in new alkaline batteries and ever since the camera has been stuck with a message...


you might have cooked it..... fresh alkaline batteries carry a voltage of about 1.7v.
try turning it on/off multiple times to see if it will clear the fault.

Received a Kodak Z1285 for my birthday in February of 2009. Approximately a month ago the camera would not "turn on". I tried several different batteries including purchasing new batteries but nothing...


When you call support, they will be able to direct you on the best way to proceed. They have ways to look up the serial number and purchase date I believe... If you haven't called them, give it a shot. :)

Rainbow colored lines on screen.


Something kind of like that happened to my camera, I just had to send it back, and they said that the LCD screen was cracked. :]

Flashing Light


I have had a HP Photosmart 945 for a few years now. A few days ago was the first time I saw my camera experience the problem described above. I thought something is wrong with the on-bard logic.

Replacing my batteries (4x2300mAh NiMH AAs) with four other freshly charged batteries of the same kind didn't fix it. The camera's LCD kept flashing on and off for almost an hour until my family got tired of it and turned it off by removing the batteries.

I just replaced the rechargeable batteries with four regular alkaline batteries and now suddenly it works. Go figure.

The moral is that changing the batteries sometimes helps. When it works, it will get your camera going for a while. The problem, however, doesn't seem to be battery-related or I would have seen it a long time ago with smaller-capacity batteries like alkaline AAs. Something is very wrong with the camera itself, that much is clear.

Best-case scenario now is that I have an unreliable camera that can give out at any moment. For example today it died in mid-shot and almost spoiled a family event. For me the solution was "get a non-HP camera".

I hope this helps someone out there.

Dirty lens


It would never be recommended to open the camera's lens on your own. That is exactly the reason why the repair shops are reluctant to open it. If you are having issues taking pictures due to the dirty lens and the camera is still under warranty, please talk to HP and they must be able to offer help on this. good luck
