Having problems with your HP Photosmart 945 Digital Camera ?

CCD Problem My HP Photosmart 945 camera's CCD broke down, and I'm told that there's no way to repair it, because HP does not sell the part. What could I do?. Is it possible to install another make's CCD or any solution that might help. Please, do not refer me to HP customer support service, because it sucks! They only offer a "refurbished camera" and only God knows what that could be!. Thanks in advance. P.S.: I know the camera is old (even though to me three years is not that much), but it work


Answers :

There is Sony CCD in you camera. I had the same problem (HP has no solution to this problem). I bought the new Sony CCD and put it in my HP. The camera works perfect now. :-)
If your 100% sure its the ccd and you have talented enough fingers for the job, maybe buy a faulty one off ebay or similar and use one to fix the other.
\015\012 I am not familiar with this particular model but most CCD's are on a releasable ribbon cable, just take care not to get the sensor dirty or loose the green IR filter when you remove it.
\015\012 a good way of keeping it clean is when you get to the critical part (swapping the ccd) place the cameras in a clear plastic bag with your hands through the opening...

Our camera when you turn it on has a blank screen and you cannot take pictures. You can review pictures and see the different menu modes, but the screen is otherwise black. We have had it repaired once for almost $200 by a Canon repair centre with the exact same problem about 18 months ago. They said it was a shutter issue?? It sounds like it could be a CCD issue? I have written Canon customer service over 2 months ago, suggesting a defect, to which I have received no reply.

Photos can't be downloaded to iphoto as per usual. Instead only print option is offered on the camera screen. Can't get it to offer any other option. Once, iphoto used to open automatically once you connected the usb cable between camera and laptop. That stopped happening some time ago but pix could still be transferred by selecting iphoto manually.

My Canon Powershot SD780 IS has suddenly developed a blurry zone, a roughly circular area maybe 1/20th of the total field. All else is in sharp focus. I have no recollection of dropping or shocking the camera in any way. Could there be a spot of moisture on the CCD, and if so how should I treat it? Or what else could be wrong?

My LCD screen on my Canon Power shot G3 is blank (just white). There are no icons; no viewing of things I wish to photograph. I called customer support they said there was no problem with the CCD image sensor on G series cameras per the Canon service letter of 10/6/05.I would have to pay about $135 plus shipping to get it fixed or trade for another camera which would cost me money also. I'm not happy with this because I assumed that Canon would fix the problem if it appeared on the G series. Ple


If the CCD were bad and everything else OK, you would see all the icons on the LCD (viewing screen), and you would be able to see images on the memory card that had been taken in the past while in Replay mode. The service letter you refer to covers r ... Canon Digital Cameras

My Canon PowerShot A85 hasn't been used much. Every now and then - when I switch the camera on - I just just get purplish mess on the screen. It's not the screen itself that doesn't seem to function (the review mode with taken pictures does work). The CCD seems to be malfunctioning. But then, after a while and while, the camera just decides to act normally again. Could it be I need new firmware? If so, how and where can I download that? Thank you for your attention. Frank.


This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, and is a known defect for your particular model camera.. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free if you live in the US, Canada, and a select few other countries. If you live outside the US, ... Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera

Dear Sirs: I have had an AipTek P-DVRcb Digital Camera for several months now and I have been pretty pleased with it. Unfortunately, when I had to replace my old computer with a newer one that runs "Vista", I have started having problems with video playback. Every time I attempt to play one of the videos, I get a message window that tells me that I don't have a "codex". Do you offer a patch that could correct this problem? Thanks!

I have Nikon D50 (11 months old) with two NIKON lenses - 18-55 (came with camera) and 70-300 (from my old Nikon F65). I have recently noted a spot appear in certain shots (mainly where sky is present) that is there in the same place whichever lens I use. Could this be a dust speck or similar on the CCD? If so, is there an easy way of cleaning the sensor? Regards Roland Zilz UK

I cannot turn the camera on. I guess it was dameged during my holidaying. I recall that, the camera was excidently turned on inside its holder and as the mechanism tried to push the lense out from the body it was blocked by the bag holding the camera. Now, when I try turning the camera on, the lense could not move forward at all. It gives cracking noises and turns itself off. Could this problem be fixed or better to buy a new camera? Arthur


If your camera isn't under warranty, I think that it has no worth to repair it by the after-sales.\015\012But you can try to fix it by your self, anyway there will be no loss for a bad camera.\015\012May be this post will be any helpful: ... Pentax Optio 60 Digital Camera

When I view my photos I have already taken they look good until I try to zoom in, then the photos go fuzzy in multiple color stripes taking over the screen. Will my photos be fine when I load them to my computer? Is this my camera or my memory card. I put someone else's memory car in my camera and could zoom in and it was fine. I put mine back in my camera, took two pictures, and could zoom in on those photos and it was fine, but not on the previous pictures I have taken. I did plug my camera


Fuzzy pictures are most often caused by not holding the camera steady enough it's the number one problem with shooting "Live View". It's not the camera nor the memory card it's the person that's taking the picture. Sorry if that was to blunt. Now say ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
