Question about HP Photosmart M22 Digital Camera
Hello Dale, The problem is that there is a small, less than 1 cm rectangular magnet, embedded in the slide cover just to the right side of the "HP" logo and above the "M22" marking, the magnet activates a metallic reed switch on the circuit board when the slide is move to the right to "turn on" the camera and take pictures also exposing the lens. When the slide is moved to the left, the reed switch contacts are off. This would be an easy fix for a camera shop (as long as you tell them what the problem is) and they would not be able to overcharge you with the knowledge you now have... This is a great camera, and would be well worth the fix. Let me know how it goes. Best regards, nightdiver
