Having problems with your HP PhotoSmart M437 Digital Camera ?

I have a Photosmart m537 camera that the lens won't retract. I have tried every recomendations that your web site has offered. The last suggestion says send it for service. Where do I send it.


Answers :

Any camera repair guy can repair these. A store that specifically sells digital camera can repair these cameras easily. This is actually a common problem for this camera and its cousin, the m437.

I have been tinkering with theses cameras. The lens for the m537 (and m437 (same parts except the for the LCD)) can be removed and repaired manually. Since I am a amateur, my success rate is about 50%. It all depends on how jammed the lens. If anyone has good technique in manually repair these, I would like to know.
