    Thanks Panther85,



    However I had already tried the remove batteries fix with no success. As far as the first option, it's an impossibility because as stated "no buttons respond". Finally in regard to the Polaroid Tech help site, it's down and states "sorry for any inconvenience".



    I do appreciate your effort though, thanks again. Sincerely, =PandaPaw=

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.
Good Luck

SONY DSC-T1 CAMERA WHEN TURNED ON PREVIOS PICTURE SHOW UP FINE ON THE VIEW SCREEN BUT WHEN THE THE SELECT MODE SWITCH IS MOVED TO EITHER TAKE A NEW PICTURE OR TO MOVIE MODE THE VIEW SCREEN IS MOSTALLY...


Hi,

Based on the information you've provided it seems that the CCD Image Sensor of the Camera is affected. If the CCD Image Sensor is affected, the images captured may be discolored or with lines on it. Even if the CCD is affected, the previously captured images and icons of the Camera will display normally. You may try power resetting the Camera.

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.

The LCD screen on my i830 does not show the image prior to taking the picture. It does display the icons and menu.... I have alkaline batteries is that the problem?


No, the batteries are not the problem. I'm afraid it sounds like a fault that requires service, but it may not be economic to fix it unless it is still in warranty.

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

No picture on screen after 1 second


Try this. Go to your tools menu, look for something like power saver or display off and change the duration that the screen stays on.

Olympus Stylus 730 Digital - Won't work 60 days old


I'm having the exact same problem. I was in the middle of zooming on a shot and it froze, so I turned the camera off and on, and now I get the 5-chimes+Zoom Error screen. This is nuts, I've only had the thing for six months, and it was $250 (got the Stylus 730). I *think* I got a replacement plan so that's good. But still... I hope circuit city lets me get a different brand b/c I'm not happy with this now. The only problem I had before was the HORRID shutter delay. I want a model that doesn't have that problem .

Sony DSC-W70 LCD Problem


You will need to describe what you see on the LCD in more detail in order for me to tell you what the problem is. There are two different issues that can cause things like what you are seeing. 1: Cracked LCD. You will see lines which resemble cracked glass. You will see bright vivid colors with specks of black or stark white all over. The image problems may be only in one portion of the screen. The LCD is made of glass, so if you look closely and see patterns that look like broken glass - this is your issue. Replace the LCD. 2: Bad LCD connection. You will see distorted colors, the screen may blank out and flicker when you shake the camera or press on the housing near the screen. If neither of these describe what you are seeing, post back and give more details and I will respond further. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
