Having problems with your HP Photosmart 735 Digital Camera ?

Battery depletion My camera says "Batery depleted" every time it is turned on. I have tried numerous batteries that I have here.. and none seem to work. It its strange because they all did before. Any ideas?

\015\012On/Off black switch contact(inside camera not in proper position) might have to turn so the outside On/Off switch makes contact with black contact inside camera. Had to remove all screws seen on exterior of case/cover. Remove cover by inserting small flathead screw driver into slots and gently prying back cover from main body of camera. Good Luck!

The generic "weak battery" theory doesn't apply here. The problem is with the camera. The camera has developed either weak solder joins or weak interconnects between circuit boards and battery terminals.
\015\012The simple solution is to give the upper conner of the camera (next to shutter botton) a whack in your (other) palm, and it will most likely work again. If not, it needs to be disassembled and repaired, but it is not worth the trouble and cost for such a POS.

My camera is in great condition and I'd hate to spend the money to get it fixed. It seems like everything else is working except for the lens...which is a big one! It never reads "ERROR" its just that the lens will not focus. It makes a noise when it is turned on like it is trying to focus. Even when I slightly hold the shutter button it makes a strange noise trying to focus but cannot. Any ideas of what I could do? I have air dusted it, gently pulled and twisted lens, restarted and recharge ba

Zoom Error Okay, I've looked all over this thing on how to fix the zoom error and nothing seems to work. I have a finepix a205 and the zoom is extended and won't retract. No matter what I do I can't get it to go back in. I've tried turning it on and tapping gently and that doesn't help. I've also tried the can of compressed air and that didn't help at all either. Any other ideas? The thing is this isn't my camera and I have no idea how but one day it just wouldn't work and it hadn't been

Similar to another post, I dropped my Canon Rebel XS (strap caught a chair) and it landed on my tile floor. Everything seems to work fine except the auto focus. Because I thought it landed lens first I bought another 18-55mm lens. However when I put the new lens on the auto focus on does not work on this one either. Any ideas whats on what is going on?

The unit uses tiny electromagnets mounted on a circular free turning focus ring, and there could be some damage to that. Also, there are many tiny parts inside the lens assembly that could have been cracked or damaged from the fall.\015\012T ... Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera

I have a Praktica sport SK320, Bought from a charity shop. It seems to be working, I have taken some pictures, but I have no idea if there is film inside, I can't see any indication through the tiny window at the back. Does this mean that there is no film loaded. Although it is winding on and flashing? Maybe I should open it to see.I thought that if it wasn't loaded it wouldn't work. Many thanks. Regards Joyce

Maybe the shutter got wet and sticky. You can try look into the lens then press shutter button to take picture. If you don’t see the movement inside the hole, the shutter doesn’t open, it will take black picture. ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W1 Digital Camera

My Camera will not turn on I have a Canon PowerShot SD750 Digital Elph. About 2 weeks ago, it stopped working and just randomly would not turn on. The strange part is, I had just used it about an hour before it stopped working and it seemed to be just fine. I didn't drop it or damage it in any way, so I don't understand why it just stopped turning on just out of the blue.

Dropped Camera. Basically, the thing stopped working. DMC-FZ1 It was dropped from a tripod it landed Lens DOWN. So it kind of smashed into it maybe? But nothing on the outside seems to be actually broken. The lens is crooked, but thats all that seems to be wrong. Yet it won't turn on at all. Maybe if someone could suggest something? Perhaps maybe something needs to be fidgeted around inside? Or is it a better idea if I pay a professional? But whatever the case. Anyone who has any suggestions it

I have tried a new sd card for more memory and it reads card error with every new card i try i've tried 3 different cards now and the original still works so i know the reader works but it just doesnt seem to want to read any other cards any ideas??

You won't be able to use a card larger than about 1GB (maybe 2GB) in this camera. "SD" cards larger than 2GB are actually SDHC cards. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDH ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 Digital Camera

After starting the upload, the third photo has vertical lines on one side on the uploaded copy only, and then the uploads stalls, with a final Windows message of "v25.exe has stopped working".

Wierd Antics Hello. My Sony DSC-W5 opens and closes three times when I switch on the power. After this little ceremony it seems to work fine. I get the same open and close action when I switch off the power as well. This has been happening for months now...thankfully the camera still functions but does anyone have an idea how to fix this? or what caused it in the first place? Thanks.

Check your power button or switch, it may need cleaning of contacts... ^_^ ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W5 Digital Camera

I have a Canon MV600. when switched on to 'camera', all I get is a blank screen. Occasionally it will work normally. I suspect the iris is not opening and the iris motor sounds a bit rough. do you have any idea what the problem is likely to be and how much this repair is likely to cost. Incidentally, I also had this same problem with an older analogue Canon model so it would seem to be a common failing.

The US version of the MV600 is the ZR60. Canon has issued a service notice for this model world wide that seems to address your issue. The US version can be found at this ... Canon Digital Cameras
