Question about HP Photosmart M547 Digital Camera
I have replaced batteries. No joy. the camera makes a motion as if the lens will open but never does. all switches are in the proper position. it also gives a m547-033 code. none of the sugestions on the hp webpage works. help please.
My son has this camera and dropped in the sand this summer. He had the same problem.
I found this blog posting.
Read it. And try all the techniques.
I took the camera to our photo printing store and the guy sprayed it with compressed air. It didn't do the trick but I think it helped. We tried all the techniques in the article. In the end I put some WD-40 in a dish and used a toothpick to drip the WD-40 into the space between the lens barrel and the camera case. I powered on the camera while my son pulled on the lens. He pushed back the flaps and pulled from them. Somehow, after several tries - and I was ready to give up - the lens opened. We still got a lens error message. We kept brushing away and blowing out sand and turning the camera on and off. Eventually it started working. However, the zoom is not working. But we are going to go back to the photo store and have him blow more air into the lens.
Good luck. Hope this isn't too late and helps you.
