Question about Cameras
The batterys went dead and the lens stayed out, now with new batterys it just beeps 3 times and shuts back off, lens doesnt move
Same problem; however, after taking a hard look at the camera I noticed that the lens was tweaked; that is, is was not evenly extended so I pulled (by hand) on the inner, extended lens piece and viola; I turned it on, the lens retracted and extended upon application of power as usual.
My guess is the 3 beeps is much like a BIOS error with a PC...when there is a hardware problem they beep on startup...in this case, the camera was letting me know the lens was stuck.

It is good to know that we might be able to repair this ourselves if it happens again, since there ar two of these cameras in my household. We were still under warranty and Polaroid replaced the one I sent in stating that it could not be repaired. It only took about a week to get it to them, have it looked and get a brand new one sent back to us. $5.00 for shipping, a phone call and a few email conversations withe the friendly tech in the repair dept, and it is done. Thanks Bob for the fix tip though. We may still need it when the warranty runs out.
