Re: i832

Press review/playback button. within few seconds lens will retract. then U can shut off. That means every time when U want to shut off, U have to return to review/playback mode from shooting mode. This is not an ideal solution but it surely helps.

Re: i832

The same thing happens to me. I have the same camera...I got mine in June 2006...and it does the exact same thing to me.... i found that this works. i wait a minute or 2 atleast...and try turning the camera back on. that usually works...but when it doesnt...i change the batteries...and just use those ones later.... its weird, because when this happens to me the batteries are FULLY CHARGED (like yours)... well hopes this helps!

The camera will not turn off and the lens is not fully retracted

from your question I understand there may be problems in the lens unit, in some cases totally open the lens unit fully re assemble it again,clean the sensors at side of the barrels, can override this snags.
the below picture is not the same, but similarly you take the cam sect out and reassemble it.

I had the same problem with a similar Coolpix model. It's an error on the lens mechanism. Maybe you pressed the lens by accident while they were retracting, or something like that... It's really a delicate mechanism. I think you have to send it for a service... Sorry!

Have you made sure that the batteries are LiIon and fully charged? I had a similar problem with a Kodak Easyshare camera that required the higher voltage LiIon battery pack rather than alkaline AAs which will fit in there but is not exactly right.

I had a friend that ran into the same problem, but his solution is not what I would recommend but it did work for him. He used sewing machine oil and applied a tiny amount less than a drop to the crevice of the camera body and the outer lens housing, his was stuck in the retracted position, and he got it going again without a problem.

The words "Lens Error" appears on the viewing screen

The lens does not fully extend, that's why it tries again. The lens probably does not extend or retract because of debris or a misaligned gear box. The lens can in about 50% of the cases be repaired without having to replace it. Try to return to manufacturer first. If you're out of warranty, there are third party place that fix them such as camera lens repairs. If you want to do it yourself, there are also free camera repair guide websites that show you how to replace the lens, the replacement part is usually available on ebay.

Lens won't retract. Camera powers off immediately after powering on without retracting lens. New battery didn't help.

Lens error, restart camera

Lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. The lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned.
Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal.
More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.

Lens stuck open

In a nutshell, this error happens when the lens gets stuck while trying to extend and comes slightly out of alignment. Particularly if it's been dropped while open. The lens gets stuck in the extended position, and refuses to move either to focus the lens or to retract when powered off.

If your camera is still under warranty, the best thing you can do have Polaroid should fix it. If your camera is out of warranty, or if Polaroid refuses to repair it for free, the one thing you can try is to If you gently, and I do mean GENTLY push against the lens with the PALM of your hand as you turn it on, it may cause it to depress back into the camera. If that doesn't work, and you can't reset it or turn it on/off several times, then you may have to send it in for a repair estimate anyway.
