Question about Polaroid i733LP Digital Camera

4 Answers

Polaroid i733 7.0 digital camera won't work. I usually use digital rechargeable batteries, but have also tried duracell ultra and energizer lithium batteries. The camera will sometimes turn on and the lens will come out, but that's it. Nothing will display on the screen, it just stays black. I can't even get the lens to go back in. The camera is only about 3 months old. Help! Sharon

    I have the same problem with my camera. My camera won't fully turn on, the light just blinks on the side and the lens won't go back in. Maybe its because when I last used it, my batteries died and the lens was left out and it affected it? Then I couldn't find my usb port to it for the longest time, when I finally I did I plugged my camera into it and tried to turn it on, it would just go to the start-up picture and the screen would go blank with the light blinking. This is fustrating!

    This just happened to me also. Need to know how to fix. It won't work no matter what I do. I can't find anything in the manuals or online about this.

My daughter just had this problem with her camera. The camera was off with the lens barrel extended. When I looked at it closely, I noticed that the inner part of the lens barrel was at a slight angle to the camera. I pushed firmly on the low side of the inner part of the barrel, and it popped the rest of the way out. Camera works fine now. Good luck!

Send it back to the factory. Call their tech support and request the RMA# and mailing address. Camera comes with a 1-yr warranty. As long as it shows no signs of abuse and you are the original owner they will consider it according to tech support.

Include the receipt if you have it. They have a few loopholes to get out of the claim however, even if you do not have the receipt they can determine the DOB from the serial number.

Remember to be nice.

Camera says batteries low, replace


Make sure you are using fresh batteries when you are replacing them. If you are using rechargeable batteries, let them charge until the indicator light on the base unit turns green. If the indicator light on the base unit flashes red, the batteries are no longer good.
Cheap batteries form dollar stores (Sunbeam, or store brand name) do not last long, and digital point and shoots eat up those types in a few uses. Best to use Duracell or Energizer batteries for Cameras. They dont have to be Lithium, or digi camera specific batteries. Those are expensive and unnecessary. Basic Duracell or Energizer will do.

I only use Energizer Lithium or Ultimate Lithium batteries, the other wore out too fast for me too. I tried to be environmentally friendly, but not when you can only take as you said 20 - 30 photos.

I've been using Olympus 550 UZ camera for over a year now. I am facing problem with the life of battery though. Tried Energizer and Duracel batteries. 10-15photos and the battery is drained down. Is there...


Switch from alkaline batteries to pre-charged Nickel Metal-hydride (NiMH).
My best experience is with these batteries:
#1. RayoVac (pre-charged)
#2. Kodak (pre-charged)
#3 Energizer (rechargeable)

Find them at WalMart or online

"pre-charged" are new technology rechargeable batteries. They are GREAT! They outlast alkaline at least 15 times per charge.

Lens will not open to take a picture


The first thing to try is new lithium ion batteries (Energizer Advanced or Duracell PowerPix) or quality rechargables. Battery type makes a difference with these cameras and regular alkalines (even new ones) often just don't cut it.

If it still doesn't turn on, or open up, press and hold the playback button [>] to start up the camera in Playback Mode (resets the lens).

If all else fails, the lens is probably jammed. If you bought it less than a year ago and saved the receipt, call Polaroid tech support and they may replace it. Be prepared to be without a camera for a few weeks.

CAMERA MAKES THREE BEEPS AND THEN TURNS OFF LENS WONT RETRACT


Try lithium ion or rechargable batteries (maH > 2500). Alkalines (regular duracell/energizer) have trouble powering many digital cameras since they cannot sustain the amount power output necessary.

New batteries in, turn on and Polaroid comes on and then goes to black screen and off.


Not all batteries are created equal, especially in digital cameras. Try lithium ion batteries (Energizer Advanced or Duracell PowerPix) or quality NiMH rechargable batteries. Regular alkalines, especially some of the cheaper ones, are not recommended regardless of what the manual says.

Batteries always low


If you're using regular alkaline batteries that?s fairly common. If you want longer life most people purchase rechargeable nickel-metal hydride batteries and a charger. Depending on the camera you?ll get 40 or more flash images out of a charging. I have two sets, one in the camera and one in the charger. Expect to pay about $5 to $10 for a set of four and around $10 or $20 for a charger, make sure its for nickel-metal hydride batteries and not the old style nickel-cadmium. Good luck and don?t forget to rate this post.
