Re: problem with i531

I had a Polaroid i531 that would beep 3 times then shut down & the lens wouldn't retract.

I fixed it like this:

  1. Inspect the lens from all angles and you'll see that the lens assembly is out of sync. (My was looking upward ever so slightly)
  2. Using gentle finger pressure, press in the opposite direction of the abnormal lens direction
  3. I heard a snap, then I powered the camera on.
  4. Camera now works.

You can set your flash base on your need.

Kodak easyshare c340 wont turn on

My EasyShare was doing the same thing your post describes, which is how I came to be at this website. I tried the one suggestion of turning on camera (I did so to the 'Auto' setting), then pressing the |O|/i button, which is the button below the 'delete' and above 'menu' next to the screen. That didn't work for me. I then tried the suggestion with the other modes on the power dial, no luck.

I then, from the off position, turned the dial the other way, to the 'favorites' icon, and it worked! I didn't have a memory card in at the time, so it made a noise almost like saying "uh-oh", with the message 'no images in favorites'. I then turned it off, then turned it to 'auto' again, good to go! The lens opened, green light remained on in all modes.

If this helps even one person, I'm glad.

Can't take pictures with the flash

I would suggest returning it for one that will take pictures when the flash is turned on. Doesn't sound like you are doing anything wrong, just sounds like the camera is faulty.

Won't Power Up

I have the exact same issue. It needs to be returned to the manufacturer. Make sure you have your receipt or they wont take it back if it was made after the manufacturing date (Mine was made in April 2007). The warranty only lasts one year from purchase. You have to call them and get authorization for the return. Good luck!

My camera has a black screen even when is on

It does not look good.
Here are some problems which could be with this camera:
LCD broken or bad.
CCD problem.

Since you go have some light on the green light, then that appears to be a LCD problem. this can happen if the camera had an impact to cause the LCD to be damaged or disconnected in some way.

Ask for your model.
