Question about HP Photosmart R707 Digital Camera
I have an HP r707 and am having trouble with it. When I turned the camera off on the last use the lense did not retract all the way in and now when I turn the camera on, it comes on for about 5 seconds and then the camera shuts off on its own. The lense is still out. Can you help?
I have the same problem. My camera was supplied by HP to compensate for their headoffice calls being routed to our private number all holiday weekend 2 years ago! It looks like there's made to expire after 2 years! Saw on another site that there's an unreplaceable battery somewhere inside which means the camera packs up when it dies. Bought a Fuji for Xmas

Hey it's me again. The "Guest" with the same problem. I talked to an HP technician yesterday and I found out the problem had to do with the internal hardware (indicated by the camera's lack of response after removing the battery, hooking it up to the AC Adapter, and preforming a power reset). And since my warranty expired, there was nothing HP could do for me but let me upgrade to a refurbished camera. They gave me a list of 4 cameras and the prices for them. I looked them all up on Amazon and all 4 of them were offered by Amazon sellers for cheaper prices. So I say no thanks to that refurbished camera. I think I'll just go buy a brand new one. Whatevs. I guess it was an okay camera for the 2 years I got to use it.

I'm having the same EXACT problem! I've tried resetting it, taking out the battery, keeping it on the adapter... but NOTHING seems to work. And I've only had this camera for about 2 years!! :[ I guess now, the only way to solve this problem would be to either buy a new $50 battery (I'd do this but what if a new battery didn't solve the problem... what a waste that would be) or buy a new camera.

Not sure if this is the same as I had, but have you tried turning the camera off and removing the battery for a while & then start over again ?
