Question about Polaroid Digital Cameras
I have a polaroid i834 digital camera and I was taking pics and the lens was out and I accidently dropped my camera and the lens is now jammed and wont go in on my camera.....I can hear it clickin like it is trying to make the connection to zoom in and out but when it dropped it pushed the lens too far back in the camera......can I fix this somehow or will I have to purchase a new camera ?
For whatever reason, the lens has failed. This can be caused by many things: the lens motor has failed or is stuck, the gears involved in driving the lens have jammed, or, as pointed out previously, the lens itself, a series of tubes which fit into one another has become stuck. You can try GENTLY pressing down on the lens when you first power the camera to see if you can free up the stuck lens. If that doesn't work, I'm afraid you are going to have to get the camera serviced.
The clicking sound you're hearing is the lens trying to move itself. Unfortunately, it's probably not going to be fixed by pushing on the lens. You are going to have to get the camera serviced. Sorry!
