Question about Polaroid i733LP Digital Camera

Won't turn on

My plaaroid i733 won't turn on. I have changed the batteries several times, and when I press the power button all I get is three low beeps, and my screen image shows up, but then quickly disappears and turns off.
It has been working fine until now and I have not dropped it recently.

    Same exact problem! i never dropped my camera, wet it and always had the protective cover on it. The camera turns on, a small green light flashes, three low beeps and then it turns off. The lens is stuck too. Help!

    I have the same problem. It's like you can see the last picture I took but it's black and faint. I haven't been able to figure out what's wrong with it yet though. It just started last night.

    I've had the same problem.  It's frustrating because I take good care of my camera, and it came at a very inconvient time...college graduation! :( How can it be fixed? Any ideas? :)

    I am having same problem. This has been going on for some time and I am not happy. I bought the camera for christmas and have missed many shots. It has not worked for a while and I put it away. Two days ago I bought new batteries and thought I would try it again. To my amazement it turned on. I took my class on a field trip and took about 10 pictures and then it started again. I want this thing fixed or my money back. I have little kids and I am a teacher. I need a camera I can depend on. I guess I will never buy a Polaroid again.

    My son's Poloroid i634 has the same problem. The lens is out, and when we try to turn it on it just beeps and flashes a green light. I can't get the lens to move at all, so that solution doesn't help. I have seen no other solutions offered.

It's because you need to push the lens in when you turn on the camera.

I have the same issue. A perfectly good i733 that has been treated well, never dropped or mishandled. Any news on this? I have found many reports of the issue, but interestingly no solutions.

Pentax optio w80 waterproof digital camera won't turn on


I had the same problem. I checked the voltage first to ensure it was greater than 3.7V (some batteries were not). I left the door open and pushed the battery down and pressed the button and it powered up. Seems to be a problem with the contacts. I put about 6 layers of duct tape on top of the battery to cause the door to push it down and now it works.

Kodak c340 won't turn on


Hello Carol, Are these batteries new and name brand ? It sure sounds like low battery power, Those cheap batteries found in some stores do not have the energy to boot a camera even when new out of the package. The camera has a very high demand to start up. I own several cameras that will not turn on with brand new cheap batteries.
Best Regards, Russell

Press power button nothing happens


Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

My camera is several years old. The flash stopped working. I replaced the batteries. Any ideas?


Here are some simple things to try first for a camera that won't take a picture when the shutter button is pressed, or with an inoperative flash. They won't work for every case, but they're worth a try:

I733 POARIOD PICK CAMERA.


I just dropped mine last night and the lens got in this funny bent position, so I popped it back to where its suppose to be. Now the camera turns on and off without the low battery signal but the lens doesn't retract or do anything by itself anymore. I can hear the little motor running that retracts the lens, but the lens itself doesn't actually move when I hear the little noises. So now, I have a wonderful camera with the lens stuck out. I should state that I have the i631. It's just like the i733 but one megapixel smaller. I've the receipt from the retailer that I bought it from so I'm hoping polaroid will at least look at it. I bought it back in June! It's only 4 to 5 months old!

I'm not sure if this will work for all of you, but try plugging it into your computer. When I had this issue for no apparent reason, plugging it into my computer seemed to awaken my camera out of the protective sleep mode that it was in. Sadly, it's not working for me this time.:-(
