I have a Polaroid t1031 that I have owned for less than 6 months. It has recently started to freeze after it is turned on. This happens immediately after the extension of the zoom lens, which seems to be making an abnormally loud whirring/soft grinding noise.
To the best of my knowledge, this camera has never been dropped, damaged or mistreated, and I did fortunately purchase an extended warranty. Can this be fixed, or do I just need to send in for a replacement?

If removing of the batteries, for a few moments, (that will reset the camera) and reinserting them won't change the startup, I'm afraid you have a defect in the camera. Make sure you have the correct batteries, as described in the manual. If nothing can bring the camera to work correct, or if the same error keeps coming back, please return the camera and ask for an other one.
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 ( http://picasa.google.com ).
Hello. When a digital camera will not stay on, it is a sign that the battery is low or that the battery is bad. Put the charger on the battery and see if this cures the problem. If it does not, you will have to purchase a new battery. J.
Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera
which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the
camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with
a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,
steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen
into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of
the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears
the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have
a problem that requires professional repair.

I have the same camera and that happens to mine sometimes. That happens when something wasn't right when you took the picture. If you press the delete button while it has the "file error" on the screen, it will delete the file and then you can continue use with your camera. Sometimes when this happens it freezes the camera so you have to turn it off and back on, then try deleting it. I hope this helps you!!
