Question about Polaroid T737 Digital Camera

4 Answers

Dead battery? I have been searching everywhere for help on this problem and so far, no luck! My camera will turn on but as soon as it does, it shuts itself off again. The lens is stuck in zoom mode and won't retract. I tried charging the battery but every time I try, it will only charge for about 5 minutes and then says the charge is full. Is this a problem with the battery? Charger? Or is the battery fine and it's a problem with the camera? Any suggestions?

    I have the same problem with two Polaroid T737 cameras (one very recent). The warranty replaced the camera with a different one. They never admitted they have a problem with this model camera.

    I have the exact same problem. When I turn the camera on, the polaroid logo shows up on the screen and then it turns back off. I've charged the battery numerous times, but it still won't work.

    My t373 does the exact same thing.  It turns on, shows the logo and shuts off.  The battery appears to be fully charged, in that the light turns green very quickly on the charger.  It would be nice to find an answer to this problem.

    Mine is doing the same thing.  It started after I uploaded the first 8 images to my Mac.  Is anyone here using a Mac? Maybe a OS compatibility problem.

  • zippyg May 29, 2008

    The battery is fully charged (at least the charger shows that it is with a green light). The back light for the camera screen turns on (and stays blank) for about 6 seconds then goes dark. If I hold down both the power and the shutter buttons at the same time for a few seconds the red light behind the control panel turns on for about one second before the screen comes on for six seconds then turns off. I'm not hearing any clicking or other noises during the cycle. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I returned mine to Polaroid and they send me a t830 as replacement.  I'm glad the guest was able to fix but I recommend the rest of you return to the company if there is still warranty left.

I had the exact same problem. I had it when I hooked up to the USB connection then it fully shut downed my camera then it wouldnt work.I kept fiddling with but still no luck. So I what I did was took out the battery and the memory stick. Plugged in the usb into again then turned the camera on without battery off the USB connection. Then tooked it off and put the battery and stick back in then so far I havent had anymore problems with it.

My camera won't work I turn it on but it's telling me the batteries are dead but there brand new batteries then it shuts off!! What is wrong with it I got it for Christmas last year but up until like


is there a dc power adapter plug on it or use USB cord ito the PC.This way should able to check all settings & power saver timers.Not saying it is the reason but a friend had issues as camera drained batteries.A short may be the cause in the battery compartment or the sensor reading the battery power levels.My guess is manufacture flaw.But only solution I can think of other than a repair is leave batteries out.I had a Fuji Camera & will never own another.Have you tried YouTube search on solution? Good luck

Have you tried to see if the battery door is completely shut? This is usually the problem with many digital cameras with batteries. Clean the battery door and where the battery touches the metal of the door. Check to see if the door is completely flush with the camera body when you close it. I know for a fact that Vivitar cameras **** the juice out of batteries fairly quickly also. If you have the USB-cord provided with the camera, plug it into your computer and see if that holds a charge to your camera. If all else fails, call up Vivitar for further inquiry, your battery may be dead.
Good luck!

My daughter has the Casio Exilim EX-Z90 and when switching on the lens only comes out so far then goes back in and switches off. The battery is fully charged.


I will not further review this camera since many have given fine reviews here. My goal of this review is to explain a fix to a problem I had with this camera. Upon a search, I learned that others had similar problems but could not locate a good answer or fix.

THE PROBLEM: Casio Exilim EX-Z90 turns off suddenly after being turned on AND/OR the camera will NOT stay on after the power is pressed.

THE FIX: I was completely at a loss for this problem. I searched Casio's site, I e-mailed their customer service, and searched the internet for a fix and found NO HELP. One day my child told me that if they pressed against the bottom of the battery enclosure that the camera stayed on. I began to explore what this could mean. It was soon obvious to me that the three copper nubs that the battery sets against in the camera must have been pressed down too far. My child had a difficult battery one day and pressed very hard to get it out. This must have depressed the copper connectors (nubs) to where they did not make good contact with the battery causing the momentary power up and then quick shut down.

I had a pair of tweezers that allowed me to gently pull the copper connectors back up slightly thus allowing the battery to have proper contact. Once this was accomplished, the camera powered up and stayed on with no issues. You must be careful so as not to break the copper connectors off because if you do, the camera is done.

Why Casio does not have this printed as a troubleshooting option is beyond me. I hope this helps others out there.

Good luck!!

Camera starts to boot but suddenly shuts off.


Assuming the battery is fresh out of the charger: a "well used" battery that can no longer accept a full charge (at the end of its useful life) can have the results you describe (it's not unlike like a flashlight with dead batteries - when the light goes out, turn off the flashlight - wait a few minutes and turn it on again - the light shines [though not very brightly] and quickly goes out again). After many charge / discharge cycles, the battery no longer has the ability to hold a charge. This is a gradual process that happens over the life of the battery. An indication of this is that you'll notice that you can take many fewer shots now when compared to when the battery was new.

There is a possibility that a new, fully charged battery will allow the camera to work again. However, if the existing battery is not very old or or has relatively few charge / discharge cycles, it is probably an issue with the camera. A local camera store may be able to help you determine if it is a battery or camera issue - otherwise, a quick google search reveals that a new battery for this camera is under $15.

I hope this helps - and good luck!

Camera will turn on and then turn off, while screen continuously flashes


I have had this problem with both a DSC-P72 and a DSC-P92 (same camera but 5 Mega pixel1.gif) They do need real good batteries, when the camera shut’s down I can run MP31.gif players or flashlights with those batteries for quit a while before those devices are dead.

I was traveling overseas once and installed “fresh” carbon batteries and the camera wouldn’t work at all. I had no photos on that trip until I found some alkaline batteries.

I even have bought 2 “dead” cameras1.gif to find that they work fine with REALLY GOOD batteries. So try it again before dumping the camera.

Camera shuts off when you click the shutter button


The same thing happened to mine. While not a solution, my workaround has been to turn the LCD screen off when I'm shooting. It's worked so far.
