Having problems with your HP Photosmart R727 Digital Camera ?

Photosmart r727 camera wont turn on. It begins to power on, then the lens wont open and it'll shut down. If I can manage to get it to stay on, the lens wont focus. I got it just 3 months ago and have barely used it. I charged it one day, and then when I went to start it was the first time this began to happen.


Answers :

Your camera almost certainly has a lens error, this\015\012 is such a common fault that I hope you don't mind me pasting my stock \015\012generic answer below. No point in reinventing the wheel!

Stuck lenses are probably the most common \015\012reason that compact digital cameras get thrown away, but there's a fair \015\012chance of recovering use of your camera again

The fault is \015\012commonly caused by dirt or grit blocking the mechanism, or due to it \015\012having suffered a recent fall. Another common cause is that the camera \015\012was in a pocket or bag and the power button accidentally activated and \015\012tried to open the lens against resistance. The mechanism may have simply\015\012 become \015\012dislodged or there may be parts which have broken.

If your camera\015\012 is still under warranty and has definitely not been subject to misuse \015\012then contact the HP service department in your country to find out about a free repair. If \015\012the warranty has expired though a professional repair will far exceed \015\012the\015\012 cost of replacing your camera. You will therefore have nothing to lose \015\012by \015\012trying to fix this yourself.

Please click here\015\012 and you will be taken to an excellent article provided by the Camera \015\012Repair website. For the most part, you'll be guided on how to physically\015\012 manipulate your camera to try and clear the fault. Although the article\015\012 mentions Canon a few times, the advice applies equally to all cameras \015\012with lens errors and is not model-specific.

Good\015\012\015\012\015\012 luck, I hope you manage to use this information to fix your camera, or \015\012at least are able to use the information to help decide whether to buy \015\012another camera. If you do \015\012decide that you have to throw your camera away then don't forget to \015\012remove the memory card as it can be used in other devices. \015\012Please take a moment to rate the speedy and free answer I have provided \015\012for you and\015\012 any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome.

My camera will not charge. It was purchased just short of a year ago, so here is no reason for the battery to be broken. It will not charge at all when the memory card is inserted and when it is, the charging light links four times and then stops. I last used my camera about 2 months ago and it worked fine. The battery died during the last use and I am trying to charge it for the first time since.

Lens Error I purchased a Nikon P90 a month ago; and it was working just fine. A couple of days ago during a photo shoot (after taking 190+ photos without any trouble), the camera went crazy.. It shows a lens error when turned on; asks to 'remove the lens cap' even if it is already removed. The lens starts to zoom out & in for a couple of times; then this error message comes up and just hangs. Tried removing the card, battery and even tried re-charging the cell.

My camera 'Samsung ST61' is a new camera, I got it about 2 months ago now, and it has been working perfectly fine, although when i previously charged it about a day ago and turned it on the camera lens came on like normal and the shutter went out but it beeped about 2 times and shuts off again to its normal state. I am really confused to why it may be doing this, but when I took it to a shop today they said it may be faulty as the lens is a little bent when it goes out? What am I supposed to do

When I put the memory card in the camera it says 'cannot read' it. How do I format the card? I know it has the right 'size' memory. The memory card I am using is the same one I used a few months ago and I saved the pictures I took to a computer and erased the pictures off the card. Now as soon as I turn the camera on it says 'This card cannot be read'. Im frustrated as there is nothing in the manual that seems to get my camera working again. I have only had it for a year. Please HELP!


Do not use the computer to erase the card. This is the reason your camera no longer recognizes the card. Now you need to format the card in the camera to get it to work properly. ... Digital Cameras
