Question about HP Photosmart 945 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Lines I am getting lines on my pictures. I wonder if anyone else has had this problem? I went through the diagnostic testing. That went fine. I reset all settings. I took the batteries out and the memory card for a half hour and put them back in. None of this worked. The best i can explaing is there horizpntal lines through the pictures. Any ideas??? My warranty is long expired. Just wonder if it's worth getting fixed or would it be better to purchase a new camera.

I have the exact same problem with MY HP 945 camera! It had horizontal lines through it in several of the shots. I thought at first it was the memory card, but after using that same card in another (older but still working HP) camera, and swapped in/out another card, but have same results. ONLY seemed to happen within the first 10 or so shots. So being a tech-savvy person, I decided to tear into it to find the issue, but once there, I decided to just get a new camera. So, THAT being said, I'm willing to send my camera to bmwrider, if he still wanted one on his desk, to see what HE can find... If interested in this, bmwrider, let me know and we can work something out for shipping?? I don't want any $$ for the camera, aside from maybe defraying shipping cost to you. Please respond to this and let me know, if you'd like...

I'm sorry but this appears to be a very common fault with this camera. HP won't repair the it seems they prefer you to upgrade at a discount. I haven't actually seen one one my bench as they aren't big sellers in Oz. Something I'm rather glad of actually. Hp do recognise it as a fault but refuse to say what actually causes it. I traced a similar problem with a Sony P72 to the video board. I'm waiting for a new one to arrive for a transplant. Perhaps you could find a faulty complete camera for sale on Ebay with a different fault of course and do a transplant with it. If that scares you, sell yours on Ebay listing the fault and use the proceeds as a downpayment on a new NON HP camera. Sorry I can't be of more help. BMW

Samsung M3 Portable Drive Diagnostic Fail Message


I would try creating a new folder (maybe TEST) on your portable drive, and saving 3-4 files (as copies) from your hard drive, say, a MS Word file, an Excel file and a .jpg picture. Close down your computer, remove the portable drive. Then start up computer again, when ready insert portable drive.
See if your computer recognises it, and then try to open the files you saved onto it. If that is OK it sounds like you do not have a problem. But treat it with caution for a week or two.

Either bad RAM, overheated CPU, or a bad (or overheated) video card will cause this. Usually it's bad RAM.

I'm assuming you're running Windows 7. To test RAM with windows 7:

Method 1:From Windows 7 Start Menu
•Click the Windows 7 Start button, type memory, and click on Windows Memory Diagnostic
•When the Windows Memory Diagnostic screen loads, click Restart now and check for problems
•You computer will restart
•The memory diagnostic will run and may take some time
•Windows will restart and report any errors to you
Method 2: From Windows 7 Control Panel
•Click the Windows 7 Start button.
•Select Control Panel
•Click the System and Maintenance icon
•Select Administrative Tools
•Then, click the Memory Diagnostics Tool icon.
•Click the option to restart your computer now and run the memory diagnostics test or to schedule the memory diagnostic test to run at your next reboot.
Method 3: From Windows 7 Command Prompt
•Click the Windows 7 Start button.
•Type cmd in the Start Menu's search box.
•Right-click cmd.exe in the search results and then select Run as administrator.
•Type mdsched.exe in the command prompt and then press enter.
•Click the option to restart your computer now and run the memory diagnostics test or to schedule the memory diagnostic test to run at your next reboot.
Method 4: From The Windows Boot Manager
•Restart your computer.
•Start pressing F8 on your keyboard.
•This will open advanced boot options screen.
•Click Esc on your keyboard while you're in the advanced boot options screen.
•You'll be taken to the Windows Boot Manager screen.
•Press Tab on your keyboard to move to the Tools section of the boot manager screen and then press enter to start the Memory Diagnostics.

Green Lines with Picture behind


Could be serious...but first check the screen modes (for split screen, format, etc) to be sure the tv is set up properly for the picture you are trying to watch. Switch the input to a DVD or something similar. Is it the same? If not, you have a mode/resolution problem with the tuner and perhaps some other device.

Black screen with vertical lines through it


Could be faulty graphics chip or faulty screen. If you can hook up external monitor and picture is fine then probably faulty screen. If external monitor shows same problem the faulty graphics chip. Take to repair shop and let them have a look.

Horizontal Plaid Lines throughout the picture


You mentioned the Magnet possibility, check around its location or move it to another site. Check also cabling where it runs and connections swap USB connectors or even if you have other USB stuff running that you could do with out. Its all a process of elimination before you have to decide to bin it.

I had the same problem I was told to unplug then reset but still no luck. Mine have been broken since Aug 2006 and seems like it's so hard to find somebody to fix it. Please let me know if you fix yours.
