    Same problem. Camera turns off immediately after 3 beeps. Changed batteries but still have the same problem.

  • Anonymous Apr 18, 2008

    Having the same problem as some others. My daughter was using the video feature of her Polaroid i834 which we knew would drain the battery quickly. It stopped and shut off when the lens was out. We took the batteries and left them out for a few minutes and put them back in. It turned on and within a couple of seconds made the 3 beeps (sounds similar to our smoke detector, but much quieter) and turned off. We recharged batteries and it is doing the same thing. It is very frustrating when a product stops working right in less than 6 months!

  • AaronJ9710 Apr 20, 2008

    Same issue, no 3 beeps. Turn camera on, lens pops in, then returns to the out position and powers down.



    I can attach the USB Cable and get some control of the device, but as soon as I return to normal, the isse reappears.

    I have the exact same problem. The lens is out and it beeps three times. The lens got stuck when i turned it on and now It's slanted and wont budge. I got this camera for christmas and have had battery problems with it before.

  • noanswer Jul 07, 2008

    polaroid i834 lens stays out, try to turn on, beeps 3 times, screen turns on for a second then shuts down. new batteries used nothing works!! How do you fix it, I know it has to be something simple.

  • martinpepsi Jul 20, 2008

    my camera does the same thing.the camera beeps three times and turns off,then the lens got stuck out and is slanted.lucky i still have the reciept and box it came in.only had this camera 2 months .happend on week of my daughters graduation.i think polaroid should recall and assist people with this known problem and replace these cameras or refund at purchase price. this is unacceptable for the average consumer.

  • ddodi61 Aug 03, 2008

    Same problem here....anyone have any luck with getting a new camera or getting theirs fixed by Polaroid??? I also don't have a receipt. Camera was a gift for Christmas.

    I just received this camera and was wondering something. You know the button you click too view the pictures after you take the pictures? I'm not talking about the power button. I am talking about the button with the arrow like inside a square. I am wondering if any of you have noticed this. I clicked it a second time and it turns on the camera. I thought by clicking it a second time, it would allow the screen too go blank, meaning I am done previewing the pictures. Instead, as I said, it turns on the camera when you click it a second time. I am wondering if this happens too anyone else?

    I MAILED MY I834 BACK TO POLAROID AND THE REPLACEMENT HAD THE EXACT SAME PROBLEM

  • aloesweet Dec 29, 2008

    This is my first digital camera and now today December 29, 2008 the camera has stopped working. I have used this camera on one occasion. And after use I took all the batteries out and stored it properly.




    And NOW! it will not turn on, and every time I press the power button a green light flashes and it beeps three times, but nothing else happens. I have tried replacing the batteries with brand new chargeable ones...Still nothing happens. What is going on and what can I do to fix it? Is it fixable?

I had the same problem until just a while ago, when I realized that the lens was tweaked. It was stuck. So I turned the camera on and gave the inside part a yank before it turned off again. It took me a couple of tries but eventually the lens corrected itself and now my camera works fine. If you do it a couple of times and then start to hear three rapid beeps (sounds like 'be-du-dum') before the other three beeps (beep... beep... beep) then your getting somewhere. Hope this helps.

Hi all, I dropped my i832 and called polaroid and they now have an out of warranty replacment program and we're very helpful when my camera broke in June. Same problem with the lens not going back in and all the beeping. For $75 they sent me a refurb. camera with a limited warranty, but at least now I have a camera back. Whole transaction from talking with customer swervice to getting "new" camera was about 10 days. Hope it helps?

In addition, I noticed if I have the camera on preview picture mode, if I click the scn button, it turns on the camera fully, meaning the lens will come out and the camera will turn on as if I did it normally when pressing the regular power on button. Does this happen too anyone else?

Me too. Worst of all is, MY LAST DAY OF SCHOOL IS TOMORROW, AND THIS IS THE ONLY CAMERA I HAVE AVAILABLE. Or, Maybe that I was just selected for yearbook staff and I NEED my camera. This ridiculous. No, this is effing BS. lol

Posted on May 22, 2008

I called Polaroid and they took down my information, but I too do not have the receipt (it was a gift). It dawned on me that they could probably see that it was still within the 1-year warranty if they looked up the serial number. However, they said while true, they still needed proof of purchase/receipt with the store name, date, and line item of the camera. I told them I was not the only one with this issue. Maybe if others call and document their complaints they will issue a recall or else a solution for those of us who don't have the receipt. Polaroid's number is: 1-877-388-3779 (M-F 10a-7p Eastern)

I have a polaroid i834 and the lens won't go in or out


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

THE LENSSES NOT COME IN AND THE CAMERA NOT TURN ON


Even in the USA, this is not covered by the Polaroid warranty, as it is considered accidental damage. Your best bet is to go to a camera shop or buy a new camera.

Polaroid i834 the camera beeps three times and turns off,then the lens got stuck out


There could be something obstructing the lens. Camera turns off if it can't extend and retract the lens. Turn it downward, try helping the lens in as you turn it on, try blowing compressed air around the lens itself, or if all else fails spraying around the base with a light dusting of CRT cleaner (90% isopropal alcohol spray)
