Having problems with your HP Photosmart 945 Digital Camera ?

Flashing lights I was using the camera and it just froze, and now the display screen and red light are flashing and it wont turn off. How do I stop this or reset the camera?


Answers :

I read your posting about changing the batteries. I tried it once and it did not work. Then, I tried it again a few weeks later and the new batteries made it work. I have not tried the rechargable batteries again. I am afraid to remove the batteries I placed in the camera. I hope this helps you. I think there must be a sensor that gets reset at some point and the issue stops. Who knows. Good luck!!!

\015\012The Issue:
\015\012When the HP Photosmart digital camera is placed on the dock without batteries, the AF assistance LED and LCD could blink at the same time. \015\012\015\012Explanation\015\012It seems that the super-capacitor on the camera senses the voltage supplied by either the AC adapter or batteries when they are inserted. \015\012This is more an annoyance rather than an actual failure on the device. The microcontroller (Dang) senses the voltage and sends a signal to the LCD and AF assistant LED. This is what some times is called a WAD (working as designed). \015\012If batteries are present or the super-capacitor is charged, the AC adapter will not trigger this behavior. This can be tried by inserting some batteries on the camera for 3 or 5 minutes, then remove them and place the camera on the dock. No blinking should be present.

I have a Polaroid Impulse QPS and it won't turn on anymore. Usually to take photos I open the flash and a little red light comes on next to the button that you press to take a picture.
