The camera will not turn on
You have tired everything you can think of and the camera still will not turn on.
If the camera will not turn on, the batteries may be dead or missing. Either install or replace the old batteries with non rechargeable batteries. Recharging and installing NiMH cell batteries is also an option. See the Battery Installation Guide for help. If rechargeable batteries wont charge, consider replacing the rechargeable batteries with new ones.
Broken Internal Battery Circuit Connector
If the batteries are working fine and the camera still will not turn on, there is a possibility that the batteries are not delivering power through the Internal Battery Circuit Connector. In this case, the circuit connector may need to be replaced. See the Internal Battery Circuit Connector Guide for help.
The batteries will not work
You have put the batteries in the camera, but they do not seem to be working.
Rechargeable batteries will not work
When choosing to use rechargeable batteries, make sure the batteries are actually rechargeable. The only acceptable rechargeable batteries for HP Photosmart cameras are NiMH cells. Other types of rechargeable batteries will not work with this camera. If your batteries are not rechargeable, then you may only need to replace the batteries instead.
Non-Rechargeable batteries will not work
The HP Photosmart 935 also have some conditions on non-rechargeable batteries. The camera can use four types of non-rechargeable batteries: alkaline, nickel-metal, nickel oxyhydroxide (oxyride), and photo lithium (Li-FeS2 ). Make sure to install them in the proper orientation. For help with instalation, see the Battery Installation Guide.
You can not see through the viewfinder lens
You are looking through the viewfinder, but you are unable to see anything.
Lens is smudged
If you can not see through the viewfinder, the lens may just be smudged. Check whether or not the lens is smudged. If it is, then try polishing it with a soft cloth, such as a microfiber cloth.
Lens is cracked or discolored
If the lens is cracked, then you will most likely need to replace it. See the Viewfinder Mirror and Lense Guide for help.

There seems to be issues with the main shutter button
Case is dirty or scratched
If the camera case is scratched or dirty, try to clean it with a microfiber cloth and an Isopropyl solution. Do not use water on the camera. This could cause some of the electrical components to malfunction. If this does not fix the issue and you feel that you need a new case, see the Plastic Casing Installation Guide.
Case is falling apart
If the case is starting to come apart, first try to tighten the screws with a #00 screwdriver. If this does not fix the issue, you may need to replace the casing. For help with this, see the Plastic Casing Installation Guide.
