Question about HP Photosmart 945 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Hp 945 pink lines

Fixit published a solution to this problem involving re-soldering of a connector's dry joints. It referred to photographs which unfortunately did not appear in the article. A number of E-Mails to Fixit from various people asked where to get hold of these photographs. I have the same request.
Can you help?

I recently bought a Hp Lcd w1907 Monitor off craigslist, the screen worked fine for about an hour then went black, button stays blue. Now every time I power on the monitor it stays lit for 3 seconds...

hi the cause is screen back light not working properly. you need to remove the back cover of the monitor to access the internal part of the monitor. then look for the connector of the cold cathode fluorescent tube back light going to the power inverter board of the back light you will noticed a dry joints which cause a loose connection that is why you hear a sound that cause of spark. you need to re soldered the connector or replaced if totally burned.

I have a JVC 13" the screen goes to a thin line,

This is purely a DRY SOLDER JOINT on the mother board. The fault can be found our if you can use a good light and observation lens , use a good soldering station to redo the solder on drive IC's and power circuits.

1999 Panasonic CT-3269SW No picture; just a colorful horizontal line through the center of the screen... tilting & tapping used to pop the picture back. No longer responds to this method; just stuck...

Sir the problem of your unit is the thermal intermittent caused by cold solder or dry joints in the solder part of your unit specially the vertical section of your tv.

It is much better if you use a magnifying glass to determine the cold solder joint or dry joints. To fix this just resolder this cold solder using a soldering iron, soldering lead, desoldering pump, Note be sure not to connect separated pin if accidentally connected may caused much damage to the unit hope this help good day and best regards.

Dx302 dry joint found what do i solder ?

Putting a small dob of solder on it should work just fine, make sure you get a nice hot even solder. Although if you have some small guage copper wire try to bridge the dry solder joint to the solder track that it shares on the same circuit on the PCB. This should be a much better fix.

Seems TV has dry/ cold solder joints (loos connections) in convergence out section.
Please check cold/ dry solder joints in convergence out section in TV, specially on pins of convergence out ICs. resolder these solder joints and all would be fine.

Power chord must must moved continually to show charge

Yes, this is common, if the power cord at the connector is flexed continually then the metal fibres in the cord will break due to metal fatigue.
You can cut off the connector away from the break and fit a new connector on the cord, make sure the the wires are soldered correctly to provide the correct polarity at the connector.
The problem could be at the laptop where the connector plugs into the laptop's power socket. It could have a dry solder joint or the socket is faulty. This requires dismantling to repair.
The HP warranty would cover the normal warranty period and would not extended for worn parts.

Pink pictures

Hi all -- This is a physical problem with the way the lens is seated. I didn't figure this out myself; I was told it by a camera repair shop guy who also owned a 945 and had the same problem. Basicly, you adjust the lens, relative to the body, by doing _slight_ rocking and twisting; gripping the lens in one hand and the body in the other. I know the description sounds, and the actions looks, like you are trying to break off the lens, but you do it only as much as it takes to change the image back to normal. Restart and see if it works, if not shut down and 'adjust' it again. Kinda like a chiropractor for your camera -- all it needs is a little manipulation....
