Polaroid model #3490 digital camera will not stay on!!!

When I attempt to turn on the camera, it will only power up if I press and hold the power button. As soon as I let go, it cuts off. I have replaced the batteries and camera is relatively new. Please help!!!

This camera is very cheap
and for me to get it to work i have to use the Energizer Digital batteries
and they have to be fresh
i dont have too much technical information for you
its just a poorly engineered camera
actually when manufactered it only sold well to the christmas gift giver type of people because it was a good brand, looked nice and was at a low price
its not a very serious camera

    Yep, it was cheap - $39.99 at Big Lots. Put the pricey batteries (Lithium Ion) in, initialized the cute little card and zip, zero, zilch. Never would turn on. Fortunately Big Lots is good about taking stuff back. No more el cheapo's for me!

Has it been dropped or wet or spilled on? Was it reeeaaally cheap? Go back to the store and swap it if it isn't damaged. It might just be a manufacturer's defect...

We turn it on and it goes off with Goodbye. Can't keep it on. It's a Polaroid a800 camera.

My Polaroid i1035 won't stay on. It comes on when


That usuallymeans an internal problem. So it needs to see a repair shop. Check for warrenty repair and replacement cost. Sometimes it is almost cheaper to just get a new camera.

If it still in warranty send it back.
If out of warranty and as this is a 'cheap disposable' item there are no economic repair options -so you could try to dismantle it your self to see what is what and if no joy - replace it.

Polaroid m737t won't stay on for more than 1 second.


It's fixed for now (cross fingers). I held in the power button while trying to power up then let go right as it powered on then pressed the power button again. This took several attempts, but somehow it worked.

Good luck.

if you don't use it (press a button, take a pic., take a video, etc.) then it will turn off because say you put it in the case and forgot to turn it off, then it won't stay on and waste the battery.
