Question about HP Photosmart R507 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Arrrggghhhh! i have a problem with the lens of my digital camera (HP R507). When I click the 'on' swith the camera makes a whiring sound and the light comes on as normal but then the camera will automatically switch itself off - presumably because the lens is not opening at all. The cap will not open fully and then it closes again very slowly. Please can anyone help?!!?? I have tried to clean round the edges of the lens cap with a cotton bud which did not make any difference at all.

I had the same problem on my hp R507 digicam. I took it to a technician who changed the lens. This resolved the problem. I think you should do same.

Lens doesn't go in or out - just whiring sound and focus error message

these are really small parts & tend to pop out of place with little impact, you can take the lens apart & pop the out of place piece back in if it's not broken

Hp r507 digital camera 1.5 lcd display cracked need replacement

I have been searching for nearly six months for replacement parts for several point and shoot digital cameras with no luck at all. I think the factory updates them so often it is not cost effective to maintain parts for them.

If the camera is still functioning- let it be. Generally there are no parts or manuals for self repair.

Sounds like this camera will need inspection and repair by HP. Since it was expensive, it might be worth doing, so I would send it directly to HP (find out where and how at their website). Pack it in several layers of bubble wrap, not packing peanuts! HP should offer you an estimate for cost of repair, or possibly a trade-in. Good luck.
