20 Most Recent HP Photosmart 435 & HP Photosmart 145 Compact Photo Printer (Pack) Digital Camera Questions & Answers


HP Photosmart... | Answered on Oct 14, 2015

Hi All
I know there''s a lot of typing here, but just wanted to be thorough for those who may not be as handy at repairing. It really was quite simple and only took about 10 minutes.
My screen was only either blank or had black bars on top and sides of screen with all 8's in the centre of the LCD. I tried everything I found online to no avail, finally I got ********** & did what I usually do when things don't work...I took it apart (funnily enough it almost always does the trick)!

1-You'll need fairly small hex bits or allenkeys. There are 2 sets of screws both of different sizes of course.

2-Take the 2 screws from the bottom out first & that will allow enough leeway/gap to take the top silver panel off (surrounding the buttons & LCD).

3-You will find 2 more screws underneith this panel.

4-Once all 4 screws are out, you'll need a small flat-bit screwdriver or something that you can "pry" the plastic case off with. Of course I need not tell you to do this carefully so that you do not crack the plastic. There are a couple of plastic nibs to hold the plastic in place on either side of the tray, once you pry this off you will see the nibs in back.

5-Now, just pull the LCD screen straight out, it has pins that make it a plug of sorts...much like that of the old printer cables that plugged into the back of a desktop.

6-I simply blew onto the pins and into the plug-like holes in the event dust was impeding connection.

7-Then while viewing from the front of the printer I carefully lined up the pins & gently pushed until it was secure.

8-I then put the SD picture card from my camera in & turned it on before reassembling and...VOILA it worked!!

9-Obviously you put the screws back & when you are putting the top panel back on be sure to tuck the "finger-like" plastic nibs back in so as not to break them.

I hope this works for all of you!! I spent over 4 hours searching online, as I'm sure all of you did, only to find that many people had this problem with little answers.
Good luck to all of you...let me know how you do

Printer doesn't read my 4GB card. How do I upgrade and what if any cords are needed to accomplish this?

Depending on the model, but most Best Buy stores, or any electronics stores and Walmarts or Kmarts may have what you need. If for some reason none of those have it, check on Craigs list, or Ebay.

If the pin is pushed inside to one side use a small screwdriver (ones used for watches)  , you can push up underneath the pin and it will become straight enough for you to connect it , other wise you need to open up the camera and desolder the socket and buy another one and solder it , make sure you measure the diameter of it & keep it look on ebay for that connector of that size, if you can take a photo of it and upload it on flickr  and provide a link it might help a bit

In what way do you mean broke eg lens shattered or it wont zoom , if its not physically broken  try tapping the lens gently in the opposite direction to which it fell.This should realign the gears

If it's an "SD" card, there's a switch on the side of the card.
