HP Photosmart M627, M627v, and M627xi Digital Cameras - Setting Up the Camera
Use the following instructions to set up the camera for the first time.
Charge the batteries
NOTE: Batteries and the charger may get warm while the batteries are charging. This is normal. Although batteries can be left in the charger without harm, we recommend you do not store batteries in the charger. To fully activate your new NiMH batteries, charge them overnight in the charger even if the charger indicates that the batteries are charged.
Install the batteries
Turn on the camera
To turn on the camera, press the button.
Choosing the language
The first time the camera is turned on, the following screen appears and prompts you to choose a language.

Use the up or down arrow buttons and left of right arrow buttons to choose the language you want, then press the Menu/OK button.
NOTE: The language can be changed later, using the Language setting in the Setup menu.
Setting the region
After choosing a language, you are prompted to choose the continent where you live. The Language and Region settings determine the defaults for the date format and the format of the video signal for displaying camera images on a television.
Use up or down arrow buttons to choose the language you want, then press the Menu/OK button.

Setting the date and time
Accurately setting the date and time will help you locate images once you have transferred them to your computer, and will ensure that images are accurately marked if you use the date and time imprint feature.

NOTE: To change the date and time settings later, use the Setup menu.
Installing and formatting a memory card (optional)
This camera supports standard and high speed, HP-branded Secure Digital (SD) memory cards, 8MB to 2GB.
Always format new memory cards before first use. Formatting removes all images from the memory card, so make sure to transfer existing images before formatting.
NOTE: Once you install a memory card, all new images and video clips are stored on the card, rather than in internal memory. To use internal memory and view images stored there, remove the memory card.
