VEO Wireless Observer RS232 serial cable help please
I have purchased this camera off eBay but alas it did not come with the serial cable, I have bought 1 serial cable (2 wires inside) but this did not work, so i am assuming its some special cable? Anyway, can someone please help me to locate a RS232 serial cable that will work for this unit? Failing that the pin outs would be equally helpfull?

Bashy, a long shot is to get a 3,5mm stereo plug and RS232 female connector, wire it up, you only need pin 2,3 and 5 from the RS232 to 3,5mm plug (see photos). Peter
change over 2 and 3 (on one end) if doesn't work firs time

up to 100 foot cables are available . Ebay is a good place to start. I just finished installing cameras with a 250 foot run. I used Siamese cable with 2 18 guage wires and rg59 in one cable. You will need to install your own ends as this comes in bulk 500 or 1000 foot rolls. The tools are available at Menards or Lowes for the rg59. The ends for power I bought off Ebay and install with a small screwdriver.
$35 is very inexpensive for this repair. But an A470 is only worth about that price these days. I know that flex cables are available on eBay, but the average person CANNOT repair this problem. The shutter flex cable is buried DEEP inside the camera, and inside the actual lens mechanism of the camera. You need to completely disassemble the camera to access it. If a new camera is out of the question, and you are certain that the $35 repair business is reputable, then would recommend them instead of you attempting to repair this yourself.
Hi - That camera is pretty old and was before the wide use of USB cables. It uses a proprietary serial (RS-232C) cable that would be hard to find (none on ebay - I checked) and if found might cost more than the camera is worth.
It's the HP site for the software for your camera. You don't need any information. Just pick your operating system that your running on your computer. On the next page choose HP Photosmart Full Featured Software and Drivers. On the next page, click the blue button and choose save. Make sure your pick a place to save it so you can remember (like the desktop). Then go to the desktop and install the software. By the way, the version your after is 9.0, not 2.0.
That should solve your problem. Let me know if your having any problems, and thanks for visiting FixYa. Don't forget to rate my solution a fixya!
Remove bottom cover ( 4 screws ) and find small shutter release capacitor ( 6 v 220 microF ) and replace it. These older capacitors start leaking after 8 years and have to be replaced. Make sure you get the polarity and specs right when you are putting a new one in.
