Having problems with your HP Photosmart M22 Digital Camera ?

HP Photosmart M22, won't turn on.

\015 The camera said the batteries were low. I put brand new, just out of the package batteries into the camera. I slid it open just to check to make sure the batteries worked fine and it did...but only for that one time. After I tried to slide it open and turn it on a second time, it didn't. And I tried to tap the front of the camera with a magnetic screwdriver with no outcome (I could be doing that wrong though?) I need help ASAP because this isn't my camera, it's a friend's >.<\015

Answers :

There is a magnetic reed switch in front of the power switch and a small permanent piece of magnet just behind the hp logo of the slide door. Try placing a stronger piece of magnet in front of the logo and slide the door again and listen for a click when the reed switch closes. If not sound then the switch could be defective. Replace switch if necessary.
\015\012Also make sure you update the M22 camera firmware for power problem before doing any hardware repairs.

\015\012If your firmware version number is LESS than 2.02.08 (for example, 2.02.04), then you should install this updated version of firmware.
