Question about Polaroid IZONE 310 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Charger doesnt work

I have an izone 310 and everytime I leave it on the charger for a few hrs and take it off it still is not charged. WHY? WHY? WHY? Its not damaged, wet, been dropped or anything. What is wrong with it? Is it just junk? I think that with all the bad reports this camera has they should recall it and we all should get new ones. Dont they look into problems like these? There is a million people out there who have bought this camers who are having the same problems as me. POLAROID FIX IT or im gonna call the BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU.

Re: charger doesnt work

This is a common problem with ALL rechargable devices. No brand, pricetag, or battery is exempt.

Litium-Ion batteries are wonderfull, but they aren't perfect. Over time they simply break down. Lithium-Ion batteries usually last a good 2 years and then they are done. It's also not unusal for them to stop charging if they are ever completely drained.
For an economy point-and-shoot camera, the izone 310 holds up nicely.
If it is kept with at least a slight charge, and used somewhat often. It'll give you a good 2 or 3 years of camera fun.
If you want it to work again, find a replacment battery. If I was in your shoes, I'd just invest in a new camera. Unless it's still under warrenty.

How to charge my camera?

This camera has a LiPo battery that is recharged via the USB cable/docking station.
I have to add that this polaroid Zone 310 has a reputation for very short battery life and very short battery charge retention so this may be why you think that it is not charging. In addition, Lipo batteries also have a finite life (some 500 charges / 24months top) before they need to be replaced completetly.
Hope it helps: let me know if this answer your question.

Can i use my plug for the computer to charge my camera? if so how? its not working!

Sorry, but the USB cable is only for downloading photos to the computer, and the 300 series cameras do not have an on-board charging function. If you wish to use rechargeable batteries (Polaroid recommends Ni-MH type only) you must purchase and use an external charger. Inexpensive generic chargers can be purchased in the electronics department of most stores.
