Polaroid i836 camera - BATTERIES WON'T WORK & NEED SOFTWARE

Hi.... Just bought this camera used. The batteries in the camera were almost all tapped-out and needed replacing, SO I put in some others that I have (that still are working and aren't dead) and NOTHING! The camera will NOT power on. I swapped-out several pairs of batteries and nothing. Just the old batteries will make the camera power on, but then I get a msg on camera that says to replace batteries.

Also, the software disk was missing so I need to down the program and drivers. I can't seem to find them online. HELP!!!

    I figured this out.... Maybe this will help others that have the same problem.

    You need batteries that are made for digital cameras! I used some Kodak rechargeable and the power came right on and I was able to take pictures. Be sure that the batteries are FULLY CHARGED though, because this camera seems to **** power pretty fast.

Check which way the batterys were put in and see what kind of batterys your camera takes . I'm not saying you don't know what your doing .but somtimes when we get frustraited we forget what we are doing .check the contacts for the batterys in the camera . put brand new batterys in the camera. if ya bought it on ebay then go back from who you bought it from.

I need to replace my charger were I can order?


You can try to buy an original, from the brand of your camera, but there are lots of univeral chargers, that moostely costing less and you can use them to charge batteries from other brand too. I bought a GP Digital Camera / Camcorder Universal Li-ion Charger. On this you still have to put the connection point in the correct position by hand, but there are universal chargers you just put in any battery and it will be charged. Just google for universal Camera charger, or visit your local camera store.

My software had been corrupted for polaroid i836. how to get software.


You don't need any special software.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

I need to find a usb cable for a polaroid i836


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries. Even if you have to buy a card reader, one won't cost you any more than a USB cable.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive.

Can i use my polaroid i836 camera as a webcam?


No. The i836 was designed to store still images (and incidentally, videos) to memory. It was not designed to stream live video to another device.

That probably wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

Hi,
Most likely the battery has been depleted. When you are not using you camera you should always recharge the batteries every now and then. This ensures that they will last longer. Try buying a new battery for your camera.
