Having problems with your HP PhotoSmart M627 Digital Camera ?

Hi I have just bought an HP Photosmart M627. It seems to switch itself off without any warning if I don't take a picture straight away. The on/off button remains lit though, so is this power saving or do I have a more serious problem?


Answers :

This sounds like power saving...some cameras allow you to set the time for power down. Go into the menu and see if you can find anything that would permit you to do that.

Hello I have a canon IXUS 960 IS. Yesterday when I was using the camera it only closed half way when powering the camera off. Now the camera doesn't open fully and when pusing the "play" button the power goes on and off straight away. At first I thought this was a problem with the battery so I have fully charged the battery and the problem is still the same. What do I need to do to correct the problem? Thanks

I am experiencing problems uploading pictures from my A1100 IS to my PC. I've had the camera a year now and never had a problem. Not sure whether my 2 year old has puhed a button on it somewhere or indeed if the cable is faulty but the PC doesn't see it straight away any more!!

My Minolta 7D anti-shake appears to be broken. When turning on the camera it hums for several seconds then will not fire...the shutter button being inoperable. All of the anti-shake lights in the viewfinder are lit, and do not go away as per norm. I also think this might be a heat issue. Doest anyone have any solutions to this problem besides costly repair?


Its not a heat issue. The Anti-shake goes off as soon as the shutter opens and closes in split second. This is most likely to be a shutter release mechanism related problem. Since the shutter is taking too long to open/close the lights are not going ... Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D / Dynax 7D Digital Camera

EX-S880 Shutdown I have a problem with my camera where it will automatically shut down as soon as I push the shutter button. The on/off button will not turn the camera on, but it will turn it off. I can turn it on by pressing the play or record button. I can also record with it as well. I just cannot take snapshots--it powers down right away. Anyone else have this problem? I've only had the camera for about a week.


First off make sure that the battery when charging is a solid red light and NOT flashing. If it's flashing that means we have a problem with the battery. Make sure you are only using a Toshiba, Panasonic or Sandisc memory card that is n ... Casio Exilim EX-S880 Digital Camera

Shutter release I just purchased this camera and while I was taking a photo indoors I pressed the upflash button and eversince then every single button I press on the camera (including the off switch) sets off the shutter release. In addition to this problem I can no longer see though the view finder unless I am pressing the shutter release button and then I can momentarily see through the viewfinder. I have noticed that if I press the shutter release button, it does not allow autofocus and it a

Anti-shake problem My Konica Minolta 7D stopped taking pictures. It will still auto-focus, but nothing happens when you press the shutter button all the way down. The problem I experience is: 1. Shutter does not release. 2. When camera is powered up, after the initial lens shuffle a clicking sound is heard. 3. The auto shake bars (all five of them) to the right of the view finder are blinking 4. Show 0 (zero) as the number of frames remaining in the view finder. 5. The problem is intermitte

Command dial on a friend's Fuji Finepix S9000 is NOT functioning. Can't control aperture, shutter speed, flash settings, etc. Can it be opened and fixed (he has no warranty, thus no problem with opening it). Is there a special setting or way of turning or pressing buttons that he is doing wrong? It says to press (and hold?) a button then twist the dial, but no change is made as far as I can see. I have tried enless things and have much experience (though I'd be a fool not to ask others). A

This camera was working fine, was turned off, and then a day later wouldn't work. The LCD screen on back works only if the Mode Switch is in the review mode (or DOWN), and does not light up under the picture taking mode (or UP) position. Also, while the switch is in the UP position, the ON/OFF power indicator button no longer stays lit. It does, however, stay lit in the Mode Switch in the DOWN position. First problem in three years. Nice little camera.

After submerging my DSC T7 under water with the use of the proper water casing Cyber-shot SPK-THA, the control buttons to the left of the viewing screen and the focus control on top started malfunctioning. I pulled out the battery and memory card and tilted the camera such that the opening for the battery slot is facing downward thinking that if water permeated the casing, it would dry out. It worked for a while but returned to the original problem. The menu button works though but I couldn't do

Both have developed the same problem: hit the on button and it tries to come on, but makes a funny sound, lens moves in and out trying to focus (screen is lit showing focus changing and green mode icon), then the camera shuts off and never gets into picture taking mode.
