HP Photosmart 120 Digital Camera

Been using rechargable batteries with no problem. Battery showed low after charging so I bought new ones- charged them and put them in- still low- re- charged and tried again. Was using NIMH AA rechargables. The camera goes on & I can move around but the shutter button will not take a picture. Memory requires formatting comes up on the screen and I do not know what this is. Would appreciate any help, Thank you, Mary

You will need to use 2100 mAh or 2500 mAh rechargeable batteries, as others are not powerful enough. To format the card, look in the menu system (or, indeed, in the manual) for the 'format' command.

SOURCE: HP photosmart R707 camera does not turn on and charge

I Recomend you to charge your camera before it reaches the lowest level of charge displayed in the LCD Screen This might help the camera to turn on again after long usage but this is something you must take in consideration before it gets ruin but if it is already ruined and you have good luck you might be able to turn it on again and then you shall follow my advise.

You have to go for a rechargeable battery as duracell doesnt have enough current as the camera consumes more energy then a rechargeable battery has. go for uniross 2200 mha battery that is pretty cheap and best.

SOURCE: Batteries

You can try switching over to 2500 mAh Nickel Metal Hydride rechargeable batteries and you will see a difference.
Digital cameras with zoom lens need more power than what can be supplied by ordinary batteries.

SOURCE: Even with new batteries and they go dead before I take 3 pictures

Yes, there is definitely a fault with your camera.  You should be able to return it for a replacement.  I wouldn't experiment too much with batteries in this camera. batteries discharging this quickly are likely to overheat, causing unmentionable catastrophe.

SOURCE: HP Digital Camera R717 Charging Flash Error

Try to run self-diagnostics test - press flash button while switching the camera on. One of them tests the flash functionality.

I bought a HP CA 350 digital camera of 10 Mpx I use Ni-Mh batteries of 2500 mAh (adjusted on the camera) and although the batteries are not exhausted it happens the camera to switch off previously...

Try new batteries which are not rechargeable and see if the camera works correctly. Ni-Mh batteries can cause problems. Firstly, a standard non-rechargeable battery will be 1.5V but rechargeable batteries are only 1.2V. So if your camera takes two batteries, it requires 3V, but is only getting 2.4V. The battery monitoring circuit in the camera will be looking at the voltage of the batteries to determine if the voltage is dropping to the point where the cammera cannot function. As the camera draws more current from the batteries during certain functions e.g. zoomingor charging the flash, the battery voltage can dip with rechargeable batteries and this may cause the camera to think that the batteries are running out of charge.

Camera won't turn on.

Make sure the battery contacts are clean. The rechargable batteries looses their charge even when they are not in use. It is important to fully charge the first time the rechargable batteries.

Why won’t my camera recharge my batteries?

Not all cameras can charge batteries. CAUTION: Rechargeable batteries must never be used in the HP Photosmart 210 and 215 series digital cameras. The overload protection and control circuits are not designed to handle the kind of power intensity delivered by rechargeable batteries. If the camera is a model that does charge batteries, ensure the batteries are rechargeable: The only acceptable rechargeable batteries for HP Photosmart cameras are NiMH cells. Neither lithium nor alkaline cells are rechargeable, and they will not be charged in the camera. The camera must detect the type and condition of the batteries The camera will only charge batteries when it detects the batteries are rechargeable and in good condition. New rechargeable batteries, and/or batteries than have been unused for a long time will not be recognized as good batteries. If the camera fails to charge NiMH batteries, charge them in an external charger once, then use them in the camera. If this does not correct the problem, the cells are old and/or damaged and new cells must be purchased.

I just bought new rechargeable batteries, and got only a few shots. Why so little usage from new batteries? Is something wrong?

Nothing is wrong with the camera or the batteries. Rechargeable batteries of all kinds will self-discharge over time. Charge them fully (if they are NiMH completely charge and discharge them a few times), and you should see full battery capacity.

Pentax IqZoom 700 film camera E9 error shutter failure Hi, I have a pentax iqzoom 700 that I'd like to repair myself but E9 appears on the lcd screen after inserting a new battery and powering on. Other posts mention this is a shutter failure. When turning on, the zoom lens extends and the outer shutter covering the outside of the lens opens. I've read tutorials that say you can sometimes fix a shutter error by causing a power outage during a shot and opening the battery door while taking a picture, but this isn't possible in my case because no shot is fired when the shutter is pressed, likely because the camera recognizes the shutter failure. I've also watched videos on how to repair leaf shutters and mechanical shutters, but the manual for this camera states the shutter is an AE between-the-lens shutter so I have no idea how to disassemble and fix this sort of thing. Looking thru the lens both thru the front of the camera and in the film compartment on the other side show a dark covering behind the lens even while the outer shutter is open covering the outer lens, which I'm assuming is the between-the-lens shutter. Ideally, I'd like to repair this myself, as there's nothing lost if I screw up and it's not worth it otherwise to take it for repair. I'm a complete novice with absolutely no prior knowledge of taking apart things, but I can follow directions so any suggestions or links to videos/tutorials would be very much appreciated Side note that I've searched the web extensively and have yet to find anything specific to repairing this camera model, and I'm not knowledgeable enough to adapt a tutorial for a different camera to this model Thanks in advance!
