Having problems with your HP Photosmart M420 Digital Camera ?

Lens wont go in or out I get error code 12 help


Answers :

The lens error is due to failure of the lens control system. You can remove battery and card replace battery and while switching on tap the lens hood on your hands so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being struck.
Use some air to blow between the lens to dislodge any sand particles struck inside. If none of these works then you can think of taking consensus with the service centre.
get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the HP service as you do not have to run around for spares.
