Check the cleaness of electric contacts. If dirty, apply vinegar with cotton swabs and dry. Do not touch the mess cause it is caustic (gloves, maybe?).

My polaroid camera won't eject the film. Are the cameras broken or is the battery dead?


When you take a picture of darkness, are you using flash or uprating the film ?
More seriously, as the film is thirteen years out of date, I seriously doubt if it is still viable. The chemicals within the film pack will have deteriorated over time, and it is my guess that they may well have leaked into the film pack's internal mechanism, thus preventing the photos being ejected. Try again with fresh film.

Camera doesn't zoom or take picture.I put in new batteries and new film and before this camera worked great!


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

Will not turn on


Try cleaning the connection, scrubbing at where the battery connects with a wire brush to get rid of corrosion & make sure of a tight connection.

Canon Sure Shot 105 ZOOM ~TOTALLY LOST ~need any instructions I can get.


The flashing H means hat the camera has detected a hardware fault on starting up. It can also mean that the film has mis-loaded. Try removing the film & then the battery to reset it. Put the battery back & switch on. If it's still doing it then I'm afraid it's got the 'flashing "H" of Doom'. Although this is repairable, it's usually not economically viable.

Make sure the flash is coming up all the way. If it gets stuck even slightly down from fully raised, it will do what you describe.

I agree, digital P&S won't work as well as your Olympus. Plus all your shots will have to be stored on a hard drive-

Can't take pictures with my camera


If it's showing an "E", then the film is not uptaking properly, even though it may be advancing. Try reloading the film, or, if for example you're shooting Fuji film, try switching to Kodak, or another brand. Mine will show an "E" for Fuji alomost consistently, but not with Kodak.
