Question about HP Photosmart C912 Digital Camera

Open Question

Simple fix, please help!!!!

The only thing wrong with the camera is that the on/off switch won't work. I have contacted HP about this, but unfortunately, they no longer offer repair service or parts for their digital cameras. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem myself? Maybe a homemade rig or something since I can no longer get a new part for it. It seems like a simple fix, but HP customer service has been absolutely no help at all. Someone please get back to me asap!!

SOURCE: Batteries are Depleted

A camera rep told me that use about 2500mi (?) batteries instead of the 900 I was using otherwise the batteries will be depleted with just one picture. Digital cameras or any other digital piece of equipment needs the extra power. Make sure that your charger will charge the 2500 power ones fully.

SOURCE: Lens Stuck open on Mz67 hp camera Error code Mz60-022

Was this stuck fully open or was the lens partially opened, or was the lens jammed?

The lens can be removed and replaced with another lens from another non-functioning camera (See ebay). The lens component can also be dissembled. Putting the lens back together is tricky because the parts have to be aligned just right for the lens to work. If working with a Jammed lens, extra care has to be considered not to break any of the moving plastic parts of the lens or that part (if not entire lens) is junk.

With the motor detached from the lens, the lens should extend and retract freely. Use this to test the lens when you dissemble the camera. Be careful of the flash board.

This is probably THE single most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Hi i have Nikon coolpix 5900. Yesterday after

Make sure the battery contacts, both inside the camera and on the battery, is clean. You can clean them with a qtip and alcohol. Also, check the battery voltage, it could be getting old. Here is a good blog of things to check with this problem:
