Question about Polaroid a520M Digital Camera

1 Answer

Polaroid a520 Hi there My camera stopped working suddenly. The battery indiocator is showing green, but the camera does not seem to turn on. I changed the batteries, used the ac adapter, etc, but the screen is black and there seems to be no indication of the camera being in any mode. However, I can see faint vertical colored lines when I look at the screen from a certain angle. Any advice? Thank you~

    We have the same problem. When we turn the power off, it does show goodbye.

    I've changed the batteries and the green light comes on but it doesn't seem like the camera is on. I tried putting the ac adaptor to see if it would work and nothing happens.
