Having problems with your HP Photosmart M525 Digital Camera ?

Camera gives ''Device not Responding'' message ...

\015 Hi ... I am having a problem with my HP Photosmat M525 Camera ... my camera keeps saying "device not responding" and it does not show up anywhere on my computer. I have connected it to my computer in the past the exact same way (with the USB cable) and I never had a problem before. All of a sudden, this error message is coming up on my camera. I have 'reset' the camera (taken the batteries and memory card out), put them back in and still get the same message. I have also tried resetting the camera to 'disk drive' as well as 'camera' but nothing works. The software is installed on my computer (I can access previous pictures I have downloaded to my computer in the past), but am unable to connect to my computer now. Any suggestions ??? Please help !!! \015\012Thanks. R-\015

Answers :

For Windows Vista, try switching the usb settings on the camera from Digital camera to Disc Drive. This converts the camera into an elaborate flash drive/sd card reader.

I\015\012also found that the usb connection on the camera may not be responding.\015\012This means that there is something wrong with camera part and it may\015\012have to be replaced. Replacing that part is not hard to do, but it is\015\012tedious because it involves taking the camera apart (removing the main circuit board\015\012from the plastic case, removing the LCD, loosing the lens from the\015\012circuit board, loosing the circuit board from the chasis of the camera\015\012to expose the mini-card circuit board that operates the AC power and\015\012usb cable. Switched this board from another camera (m425, or m525 (same\015\012board)) and reassemble the camera in the reverse order of disassembly.

Hi, I own a Sony Cybershot camera, and it has been giving a few problems as of this week. The lens keep re-adjusting in and out when I turn the camera on to take pictures. It however responds just fine when in picture-view mode. There is a screen prompt that says 'Access' when the camera is turned on, as well as the message 'turn off camera and start again'. I do not think that the camera had fallen at any time, and it is just under a year old. Thanks a lot for your response, Sarah.

Olympus D-435 Our camera has been working fine until last week when we started getting this error message - memory full on a blue screen when we had taken only one photo (and deleted all previous photos). Thinking there was a problem with the memory card, we removed it and used only the camera's internal memory which worked for a short while - allowing us to take 12 shots - but now it will only let us take 1 shot before giving us the error message. Is there anything I can do? Many thanks


You can try updating the firmware of the camera since this is not a problem with the memory card its with the camera itself you can check Olympus web site for software update on this.Hope that helps....... ... Digital Cameras
