    Same problem as above- lens is stuck "out". Must take batteries out to power down, or the batteries will run down while the camera tries to pull the lens back in (which it cannot). I took all the screws out to open the camera as suggested, but it the side by the tripod screw does not open. Is there a hard reset somewhere, or something of that nature that doesn't require dismantling the camera?

YOur camera is looking for verification that the lens is extending. Once it sees the lens has extended when you power on, the sensors in the lens tell the Operating system that the lens is Ok.
If it does NOT see verification from the lens, it shuts down. Never force your lens back in. You may have to take the camera apart to reset the lens. you do this by removing the Zoom gear drive assembly and free you lens up by hand. 1 grain of sand or grit is like a Monkey Wrench in a Gear cog. Clear the obstruction with a can of compressed air, and work the lens with your hand. once you can that put it all back together and it should work.

Polaroid TLX04244B screen goes black after one minute after being turned on.

Failed capacitors on main board.could be dry joints...quick way to find out is open back after disconnecting from mains.look for any swollen..split or burnt capacitors...these are black with silver tops...
tutorials on YouTube....if it's just dry joints then as they warm up the solder joint disconnects thus resulting in shutdown.try tip of solder iron on all the connections that look suspect.usually telltale signs are brown flux seepage and cracked solder around connections.

Polaroid flm 2017 turns on then goes black sound still works

This problem is often replated to a leaking power supply capacitor on the secondary side of psu rated at +/- 2000uf at 12v...yup 4 bucks should do it...the hardest part is often opening the power supply up screws are often located underneath rubber feet....never make contact with the primary ac supply side even after it is unplugged reservoir capacitor high voltage can store a charge for long time and be dangerous to contact.
