Will not stay on

I have a Polaroid PDC 5080. I have changed the batteries (Duracell). In a nutshell, I turn it on, it stays on about 5 seconds, then the screens says Goodbye. It just started this day before yesterday otherwise it has worked fine.

Re: will not stay on

I had the same problem with my camera it came on, it clicked, it said goodbye and that was it. what i did and it has worked since is apply gentle pressure to the lens and it's parameters. it took a few times of doing this between attempts at getting it to stay on, but it worked great. i do not remember, but i may also have applied scant pressure (resistance) to the lens while powering it on. i have an i1237

Polaroid PDC 5080

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.
