    I have the same problem. I dropped the camera when the lens was still out. It won't go back in, it won't power up and I'm out the money. Does anyone know anything?!

    yep, my M417's zoom won't retract so it turns off immediately after powering on. When I hold the zoom button when powering on, it opens a bit more but then turns off

I have kind of inherited a hp photosmart m417 camera and I do not know how to download the pictures from it to my computer? Am I missing a tool to hook up to it?

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive.

HP photosmart M417

Hi yban, Not sure if this will solve it but many times such problems occur from 2 reseaons A) loose parts in the battery compartment - causing cutting electricity. See if you can detect any problem there. B) when the memory card is damaged or not well placed. Try running it with an alternative memory and see if the problem reoccurs. Let me know if this helped. Thanks, D.
