Having problems with your HP Photosmart M537 Digital Camera ?

On my HP 537 camara my daughter dropped it now the switch that makes the camara go to view pictures or take movies will not work, it just slides back and forth? Is there a way I can open it and fix the switch?


Answers :

If you can take things apart without damaging things...then it may be possible to fix. I have had mine apart several times, and the slider on the outside, switches a mini micro slider inside. It has to be lined up with the tabs...dropping it may have caused it to jump the slots.

Fujifilm A330 My camera is doing something rather strange; it's always switched on by sliding the front shutter open all the way, and it's ceased turning on when I do that. My dad and I figured out that we can get it to turn on by holding the 'on' button in the back, but it won't get out of the menu/blue 'no image' LCD display for reviewing pictures. In the past, holding the 'on' button was what changed it from picture review mode to picture taking mode, and since everything has swapped around t

The small sliding bar which operates the closure to the battery compartment on my Canon Ixus 750 Camera has popped out when I tried to open it to replace the battery. It is made of plastic and has two small hooks or lugs on the underside which appear to engage in two holes in the camera. I am having difficulty putting it back and am reluctant to force it in case I break one of the plastic hooks. What is the best way forward?


Hi,Try to close the lid without the battery, this we can check if the lock was still functioning or there was a problem on the mechanism on the lock..Let me knw ... Canon Digital Cameras

My camera turns on by itself even with the slide in front in the closed position. The screen then shows the warning that the lens cover is closed. When I open and reclose the lens cover in 10 or so seconds the camera turns itself back on and repeats with the lens cover closed warning. The only way for me to turn the camera off at this point is to remove the battery. Help!


Most likely some dirt, dust, or other particle is jamming the lens opening gears. You can try to spray some compressed air into the lens assembly, hopefully dislodging whatever is obstructing the lens cover. If this doesn't work, the camera wil ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T77 Digital Camera

My kodak V705 ran perfectly until power switched off (screen indicator was blinking red), letting the sliding door opened and the screen off. The camera nether came back to power on.

Hello, I own a Fugi Finepix F100 camera. Last week my dog was pulling on his leash trying to get to a gaggle of ducks and caused me to drop my camera down into snow. I tried to dry it off and in doing so might have damaged the retractable lens cover. Now it is not reliable in opening all the way, I usually need to help slide it back so that the lens is fully exposed. I really don't want to have an expensive repair unless necessary...what do you advise? Thank you! Linda


If you can get a free estimate for repair (local camera shop), then determine if the expense of having it repaired is worth not having to help the lens cover retract ... Digital Cameras

LENS PROBLEM Lens keeps zooming in and out when I turn it on. After 4 times, the lens goes back in and it says on the screen, "Turn the power off and on again". Then it does the same thing when I turn it off and back on. Also, the shutter is not closing however it's also not all the way open. Almost half way but more open than closed. Please help!!!


The slightly open shutter is the reason for this problem. Thank God you mentioned it. \015\012Solution: Try with your fingers to shift the shutter “blades” back and forth to see if they move freely.

Slider Prob I've had my S30 for quite a while and lately i've had some problem with the slider opening up. Dont know if something got in between the slider and the cam or something. Anyway with some trouble i could still open up the slider and thus start up my cam but then one day when i was trying to close my cam i started to slide it to close. Finally it closed and i slided the slider onto the lens but then the lens started to open up again. But the slider was in the way so the lens opened up


Dang, what a weird design. The lens needs to go threw a cycle before it can reach the idle position where it waits for a comand from the user. If its in the closed position and you turn it on it extends to its full range then stops at the idle positi ... Canon PowerShot S30 Digital Camera

I have a Canon Powershot S3 IS and I was looking at picture I had taken and the lens was retracted. I switched to the camera mode and the lens started to come out and hit my leg and stopped half way. The lens went dark. I turned it off to retract the lens and then turned it back on. The lens came all the way out but the screen is still black and I could feel the camera and just barely hear it making the noise it makes when the lens is coming out but it was already all the way out.

My powershot s80 lens cover does not slide back, as if it stuck, any suggestions? I tried to slide back the lens cover to activate the camera but the cover does not move at all. It moves only 1mm back and forth. It does'nt seem to be broken or something like that, just stuck, as if a lever does not operate and block the cover. Thanks in advance, Panagiotis

Accidentally I dropped my Sony DSC S500 camera. Now the shutter is jammed. When i switch on, the lens ejects out and stops half way. While switching off, the lens doesn't come back to normal position, instead it stops in half way ejected position. From the LED display i could see a blurred image. I am able to see all the photos that i have taken so far, but am not able to take any new photos.

I swapped memory cards with my daughter as mine had a bigger memory. However it didn't seem to work properly in her camera. Her camera now freezes on the opening screen when its switched on and does nothing else, the lens also refuses to go back in. I put the card back in my camera and now mine just switches off when you turn it on after making 3 blip noises! Now both cameras don't work with or without the memory card. I've checked the manual for mine which has no explainations. Also checked bat

Shutter malfunctioning I bought a new camera and within a month the shutter has started to malfunction. It doesn't shut completely when switched off nor does it open completely when switched on. If you touch the shutter manually it opens. Is there a way to fix this problem myself? Since my warranty card is not signed or date of purchase mentioned by the dealer I bought it from!


No...return it for repair or replacement.  It may simply have dirt in the lens cover.  Digital cameras do not have shutters.  ... General Electric E850 Digital Camera

When switched on the camera tries to open the lens. It is clearly being obstructed in some way, and after three attempts closes down with the message "Please turn camera off and on again". If tapped gently sometimes the lens will open, and if the lens is caught and encouraged to stay out then ooccasionally the camera opens as normal. If the lens does stay open the camera appears to function as normal.

Hi, I have a Sony DSC-W100 cybershot camera that the mode switch has gotten flaky. If you just touch it, it switches modes and if you rapidly change modes back and forth from one end of the control to the other, it may work for a while and then gets flaky again. Acts like the switch has dirt in it. Can I buy the switch? Clean it? or should I just toss the camera? Jim Lofgren in Redmond, WA

On my PENTAX Optio Z10, the slide shutter cover came loose, it slides left and right to open and close. I didn't lose any parts but I can't slide it back on. I currently have a rubber band holding it together. How can I get it fixed, I like the camera, it takes wonderful pictures. Unfortunately I have had it for more than a year.
