Having problems with your HP Photosmart 945 Digital Camera ?

Lines I am getting lines on my pictures. I wonder if anyone else has had this problem? I went through the diagnostic testing. That went fine. I reset all settings. I took the batteries out and the memory card for a half hour and put them back in. None of this worked. The best i can explaing is there horizpntal lines through the pictures. Any ideas??? My warranty is long expired. Just wonder if it's worth getting fixed or would it be better to purchase a new camera.


Answers :

I have the exact same problem with MY HP 945 camera! It had horizontal lines through it in several of the shots. I thought at first it was the memory card, but after using that same card in another (older but still working HP) camera, and swapped in/out another card, but have same results. ONLY seemed to happen within the first 10 or so shots. So being a tech-savvy person, I decided to tear into it to find the issue, but once there, I decided to just get a new camera. So, THAT being said, I'm willing to send my camera to bmwrider, if he still wanted one on his desk, to see what HE can find...\015\012If interested in this, bmwrider, let me know and we can work something out for shipping?? I don't want any $$ for the camera, aside from maybe defraying shipping cost to you. Please respond to this and let me know, if you'd like...
I'm sorry but this appears to be a very common fault with this camera. HP won't repair the it seems they prefer you to upgrade at a discount. I haven't actually seen one one my bench as they aren't big sellers in Oz. Something I'm rather glad of actually.\015\012\015\012Hp do recognise it as a fault but refuse to say what actually causes it. I traced a similar problem with a Sony P72 to the video board. I'm waiting for a new one to arrive for a transplant. Perhaps you could find a faulty complete camera for sale on Ebay with a different fault of course and do a transplant with it.\015\012\015\012If that scares you, sell yours on Ebay listing the fault and use the proceeds as a downpayment on a new NON HP camera.\015\012\015\012Sorry I can't be of more help.\015\012\015\012\015\012BMW

Hello - I purchased a Panasonic Lumix DMC-T265 about a year ago in England. (I recently moved back to the US and all my belongings are in transit somewhere between here and England.) I went up to Mount Evans a few weeks ago, and the viewing screen of the camera just blanked out - the top 1/2 inch of the screen is still present, but the majority of the screen is blank, with a few vertical "lines". Can you tell me how I can get help repairing it? Is there anything I can do to trouble shoot it?

Pincushion distortion I've actually had this camera for about 2.5 years now, so presume well out of warranty, but I realise by looking back at my photos that the problem may have been there from the start. When taking photos on the default camera position I get a reasonably severe distortion of the picture, such that a person standing off centre will have his head elongated somewhat toward the corners, and straight lines along the edge will bend toward the corners.

I bought a Polaroid i733 Digital Camera for my daughter in March, 2007. A couple of weeks ago when she went to change the batteries, the lens got stuck half way out. Now it won't work. By the looks of things on line, it looks like this is an inherant problem with this model. Is it still covered under warranty? If not, any idea what the approximate cost to fix it would be?

Won't Focus I have had my Canon Powershot SD1000 for about 9 months now. I have had problems with the lens error and it getting stuck but have always been able to get it to work eventually. I had another bout with the lens getting stuck, was able to get it unstuck but now it won't focus at all. Normally I press the shutter down half way to get it to focus on my subject, but now it simply won't focus. I'm wondering if maybe my settings are off, or if it's an internal problem. Any suggestions
