HP Photosmart 945 Digital... Problem

\015 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?\015

Answers :

Remove the batteries and SD card for about 5 minutes. Reinsert and see if that resolves the issue..
This camera needs quite a lot of power from batteries on power-up.
When it gets older, the grease disappears from the bearings and motors are harder to turn - so motors need even more current. This makes battery voltage to fall too low an camera resets. On reset blinks front red LED and a LCD. This loop can take as long as there is some energy in batteries.

I solved this by connecting the camera to the external power supply (6V, 2A). It boots normaly.

The next step I will make is to disassemble the camera, put some fine grease for fine mechanical parts in every bearing and slide. It should help.

The other solution to test is to mount a small resistor (I guess about 1 to 10 ohms) in series with the motors. This will lower the power-up current. But also all movements will be a bit slower.

I have a HP Photosmart M415 digital camera 3 years old. It will not hold the charge in the rechargable batteries and also when I replace them with Duracel I can only take about 10 photos and then the camera tells me that the batteries are depleted and shuts down.I have also bought new rechargable batteries but the problem still persists.


You have to go for a rechargeable battery as duracell doesnt have enough current as the camera consumes more energy then a rechargeable battery has. go for uniross 2200 mha battery that is pretty cheap and best. ... HP Digital Cameras

Battery Life My HP Photosmart 635 Digital camera has never operated properly since I got it. The problem is battery life. When I install new alkaline batteries or fully charged nicads, the batties die after 5 minutes wether the camera is on or off. I now use it as a paper weight.


This is a typical problem with these cameras. The culprit is a failed onboard battery. The battery is for retaining the time and date while replacing the removable batteries. If you put batteries in and set the time and date- then remove the batt ... HP Photosmart 635 Digital Camera

Dust Orbs I am having serious problems with "Dust Orbs" appearing in pictures. Mostly indoor pictures. These things are ruining my pictures. Are they caused by the Infrared Beam that the camera uses to focus? Or is something else wrong with my camera? Do ALL digital cameras have this problem with dust? Do DSLR have same problem? How come these dust orbs only appear with Digital Cameras, and not film? I need a digital camera that works indoors. Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance....


Many digital cameras have this problem, though it has nothing to do with the camera being digital. It is small specks of dust in the air being illuminated. You will never see this problem without a flash.\015\012\015\012The reason you see it on digit ... Kodak EasyShare DX7440 Digital Camera
