Question about Polaroid i830 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Cameras backlight won't come on.

I have a Polaroid i830 and for some reason the backlight won't come on. The actual lcd screen is o.k. but its really dark and I was wondering if it might be a hardware or software problem or how i might be able to fix it. I have already tried resetting the camera to factory default settings.

If changing the brightness setting in the Setup menu does not work, try returning the camera since it's probably defective. Polaroid will replace it if you've had it less than a year and the store won't exchange it, but you need the receipt.

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.

Can A Polaroid i830 be used as a webcam? If yes then how do i make it work

No. the i830 is designed to store images (and videos) to memory, not to stream live video to another device.

You cannot repair the broken LCD screen; the white you are seeing is the backlight for it. LCDs have extremely thin gold deposits along one edge that is contacted by a silicone rubber strip that has fine wires molded into it vertically and one edge is pressed against the LCD panel for contact. It is a fussy arrangement when new and it sure doesn't get any better when dropped.
I wouldn't delay too long looking for parts or repair; Polaroid filed for bankruptcy last week although I doubt if the parent had anything to do with the manufacture of your camera; as with many companies with limited manufacturing means, the camera was surely built by others.

Polaroid offers in warranty and out of warranty service. There are also camera shops with in-house repair people. If you'll give me your zip code, I'll try to help you find someone close to your area.
