Warranty on Cameras 1year parts and labor
There is no response from the camera while pressing any buttons.
The LCD screen is frozen or the camera is hanged.
Remove and re-install the battery or batteries to reset the camera. Your valuable data stored in the camera will not be lost.
I hope some of this helps, if not above is the contact number for Polaroid tech support. You camera seems to be still covered under warranty.

Tips for a great answer:
Turn off the camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
Reinsert the battery pack.
Turn on the camera.
Also try resetting the Camera back to factory default: The RESET button is located at the lower right side of the control button. To reset the camera just press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object.
If the issue remains the same, then service may be required.
Thanks for using FixYa.
