Having problems with your HP Photosmart R927 Digital Camera ?

When the cameras turned on the picture on the LCD's very very dark and the picture has a red tinge when exposed to bright light. could the lens be faulty?



Answers :

This sounds like a sensor malfunction more than a LCD problem. I have done a search for Troubleshooting on this camera and most problems were cracked LCD. \015\012This sounds much more sensor related.\015\012
\015\012The lens in a camera like this just collects light and shines on the sensor that then scans the light and turns light into electrons - ie - color.\015\012
\015\012Are you still in warrantee as this will have to go back to factory.\015\012

Over exposure My camera was working great until about 2 months ago when I tried taking pictures outside and they were over exposed. I checked my settings and they were normal ( always keep it on automatic); however, I even changed them yet my pictures outside or inside (in bright light) are all over exposed. What could be the cause of this problem? Thanks!

I dropped my Canon Powershot SD750 digital camera and the extended lens was stuck open. I had no other options so I opened the camera up to fix it. I corrected it, but after I put the camera back together it takes poor pics. In normal light conditions it over exposes and pic looks really bright and also has many lines going through the picture? I love the camera and don't want to buy another one. I tried a different memory card and reset function under the menu.

Hi--I have a panasonic lumix DMC-FP8, which I bought in May 2010. The camera is great for outdoor landscapes, etc. but I've had problems with low lighting and red eye. The camera has trouble focusing on the subjects, and there are often white spots all over the picture (even though I've cleaned the lens and checked to see if there were scratches or dirt on it). In addition to this, I have the red eye setting on, but I still get really awful red eye in all of my pictures. The camera is still new

Camera flash i generally use my camera on auto mode so i don't have to play around with buttons! however after loaning my camera to my sister for a week my flash is no longer as great as it was!! I used to take pics and the flash would light 2-3 times giving a great, bright picture. It now flashes once before the pic is snapped giving a dark picture. If i push the flash button on the left side of the scrolling circle it goes from red eye flash (which flashes once) to no flash! I'm almost certain
