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....

Your new rainbow is still under warranty I believe so explain it to the company and ask for another. I too had a rainbow however I am like your friend in which mine worked very well. The noise is coming from the motor housing or the motor itself. Good Luck

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. :)

Sony Trinitron Color Rainbow


Usually when a tv is dropped the phospher screen inside the picture tube will detatch making the rainbow color This cannot be fixed as it requires changing the picture tube. Only other thing is demagnatize it with a demagnitizing coil (used by tv techs) but not likely to fix it since it was dropped. You have a bad picture tube.

Screen full of moving colored lines


I would suspect bad solder connections allowing a ground to "float" It is a common problem with the model P42W24BX which I believe uses similar circuitry as your model. An experienced repair shop should be able to get you fixed up.
