Having problems with your HP Photosmart 945 Digital Camera ?

Pink pictures the other day.... I was using my camera and it started showing lines through the image, the image quality was getting worse and worse.  I figured needs new batteries.  So I put new batteries in it and now it takes pink pictures!  How strange my evergreen pictures look in fushia color!   I tried and tried for a couple of weeks, I checked all the settings, even took the batteries out and restarted, but still pink!  all shades of pink!  Here's where it really gets odd, I got my camera


Answers :

Hi all -- This is a physical problem with the way the lens is seated. I didn't figure this out myself; I was told it by a camera repair shop guy who also owned a 945 and had the same problem. Basicly, you adjust the lens, relative to the body, by doing _slight_ rocking and twisting; gripping the lens in one hand and the body in the other. I know the description sounds, and the actions looks, like you are trying to break off the lens, but you do it only as much as it takes to change the image back to normal. Restart and see if it works, if not shut down and 'adjust' it again. Kinda like a chiropractor for your camera -- all it needs is a little manipulation....

My Finepix s5700 will not turn on even with new batteries. I slide the turn on button and the green led lights, but then nothing else happens.

If I try to switch between the shooting programs, nothing happens again. I have the camera for about 3 years and such problem appeared just a few weeks ago. Thank you in advance for your cooper

When I turn the camera on the LCD screen is black. After an hour or so I get lines across it then it clears up I can then see an image and take a picture.

I have a relatively new camera. The battery seems to keep draining way faster than other cameras I have had. i.e. took about 70 pictures and it drained. Do I have to constantly recharge it?

Zooming FE-280 camera - Worked great for about 2 weeks. While on vacation developed a problem - when you turn the camera on the lens goes in and out like it is trying to focus. Once it is through with the lens action when you try to set up for a picture (any mode) and focus on the subject the camera will not focus and then shuts down. Acts like the battery is dead but camera shows fully charged battery. Any ideas?
