Question about HP Photosmart R707 Digital Camera
So ok there was an accident when my dad dropped my camera when i was tryin to show him a pic, at the time the camera was fine and closed up ok, i went to put it back on within like 10-15 seconds and the zoon lense only came out like half way, now its kinda stuck there wont go in and wont go out, i have tried switchin the camera on but it only stays on for like 20seconds (if even that) then switches off again and it only shows me the HP loading stuff, i cant see the pics that are on it, i cant take new pics and i really need it fixed there is stuff on the camera's own memory that i really want to keep....is there like a manual that i can use to fix it (my man said he would fix it but he is used to working with much bigger equipment and my hands are dainty enough to fix the problem if i knew how) any help that any1 can give me would be greatly appreciated Kind Regards Jeannie
Ours had the same problem - lens extended and out of alignment. Since it's a lens problem and the camera is out of warranty, I figure what the heck? I pushed and prised and it became unstuck. Worst that could have happened was that I scorched the camera permanently, but it was already useless.
Now if I could just fix the "flash charging" problem.

I had the same problem. i already had the newest firmware (2.24, from the battery recall) so i just installed it again using the SD card method. The first time I turned it on/off it got stuck for a moment, and now since then I have powered it on and off 30 times and it has not gotten stuck once......

I had the same problem - try to wiggle the zoom lense really carefully and the switch it on again. The zoom objective is canted a little bit and the motor is too weak to move the zoom objective. You can also open the camera by removing all 8 screws around the camera and then removing the metal front (Just pull it in the direction of the zoom lens with your fingernails). Then you can access the zoom lens better ... Andy
