Question about Polaroid I739M Digital Camera

1 Answer

Comes on to the polaroid screen but can't take pics or turn off

When I turn the camera on, it shows the white Polaroid screen, but I can't take pictures, or view them, or do anything. When I push the button to turn it off, it does nothing. When I take the batteries out, or unplug it from the AC adapter, it will go off, but the lens stays out. When I put the batteries back in, and push the on button, the lens goes back in. If I push it again, it starts all over again. My computer will not recognize it, so I can't upload pictures. The camera is brand new, I got it for Christmas. It worked for maybe a week.

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

Hi I can not figure out how to delete pictures off my Polaroid a300. I have tried everything and I still can't figure it out. HELP!


If the pics are on your internal memory, with no card in the camera,go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions. If the pics are on the card and you want to delete just one pic at a time, bring up the pic on the screen and push the button with the garbage can icon...follow the on-screen instructions. If you want to erase the entire card and the pics are safely on your computer, then just do the format thing again with the card in the camera.

My polaroid camera i835dosent show images when switched on either on camera or vidieo screen is blank model no ciu00835B Thanks


If you are seeing a completely white or blank screen, the internal lens has failed. Remember, Polaroid has a 1 yr warranty from date of purchase. If you don't have the receipt, they can possibly use the serial # from the camera. Go to their website for tech support www.polaroid.com

I have a new polaroid I735 camera and the pics are very grainy and blurry even when viewed through lcd screen. Any ideas?


maybe you zoom in a lot and then it would be normal and if the pictures come out fine, i wouldn't worry about it but if the print pics come out grainy and blurry i would take it back if you have warranty

Polaroid i733 that eats batteries


Sounds like you need to change the camera settings and cut down on turning the camera on and off between shots. Viewing pics on the LCD screen eats up the battery life the most... just an FYI.

Crappy pictures


Describe wierd - this word means nothing. White flash images are over exposed- so reduce the ISO setting to a lowers number if the camera allows it. or Reduce power of the flash. The easiest way to do this is to put layers of tissue of the light reducing the intensity until you get it about right.
