I had this same problem the first time i bought this camera and sent it back with the reciept for my warranty, and they sent me a new one. It worked perfectly for a while now i have the same problem!

I fixed mine! I had the same issue you all did. My lens was stuck out and crooked. Just gently push the inner lens back in place and your camera should turn on and work fine!

Polaroid i733 digital camera lens stuck open

If the lens is stuck out then you will find it is usually one of a few reasons.

1. Check the
batteries. (obvious I know).
2. The
camera has been dropped or knocked.
3. The camera has grit or dirt in the lens mechanism.

Providing the batteries are ok then 2 and 3 usually mean a professional repair. The lenses tend not to be something that the average
home user can remove and take apart. The cost of repair also might be more than the camera value so you will need to find a good repair shop near you and get a quote.

I have a polaroid i733 digital camera when i go to turn it on a green light...

My Nikon D70 quit working and would only flash a green light. I contacted Nikon and they fixed it, no charge. I was very happy with Nikon for the free repair! If you have this problem, go to the Nikon website and do a search for flashing green light. They cover this problem as a defect and did not ask for any proof of purchase or anything. Very smooth and easy. Thank you Nikon!!!

My polaroid i733 turns on the beeps 3 times then turns off when the sd card is in. i have tried formatting the card and camera but it still is not working any help

Had the same problem with our i733 Pink Polaroid. Beeps three times and then shuts off. The reason for this is that the lens is stuck in the partially open position. Because our camera was long past warranty and we bought it for $40 second hand I took the brute force approach. I grabbed hold of the lens and wiggled it from side to side while trying to pull it out (forcefully but being as careful as I could not to damage it) and then there was a small "pop" and the lens came out all the way and the camera was good to go again. Hope this helps.

My batteries died in my pink i733 and when it shut down the "zoom lense" did not recede. i put fresh batteries in it but all that happens is that the green light flashes. it wont come on or...

This can sometimes be fixed if you remove the batteries over night and allow the camera to sit and discharge it should correct this problem. hope this helps.

Polaroid i733

Here is how I fixed this problem. I grasped the lens around the base (larger part) like you would if you were going take off a beer bottle cap.

Very gently while sliding my thumb and index finger around the lens, I rocked it back and forth. DO NOT TRY TO TWIST OR PUSH,.....It felt like it "popped" back on track.

My assumption was it was probably hit from the side, and could not retract, once it was rocked back on track, it worked fine. It felt like it loosened a tiny bit as well.

Good luck.

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.:-(

I have had the same problem with my Polaroid camera also. I had it for just a few months and sent it it in while it was still under warranty. They then sent it back to me TWO months later telling me they could do nothing about it. They didn't fix it, send me a new one or anything. I see that several people have posted on the same problem and haven't got any resolutions. This is ridiculous!
