This breaks the gears in the lens assembly, and the camera will have to be serviced. You can read about things you can try to do, but often when a camera falls too much, it's broken, for all practical purposes.
You always have to be careful with digital cameras...they have tiny plastic gears in the lens assembly, that can be broken or stripped with a fall. Sorry to have to give you the bad news, but some of those tips might work.

How to turn on a HS sprint 5050B

I am sure turning a treadmill ON is as simple as A, B, C. If you can't find a switch to start a treadmill, look at the magnetic cut-out button. Most treadmills have a cut-out button that had a string that you attach to your clothing, so just in case you fall off, the treadmill will stops instantly. I would never dare use my treadmill without this magnetic cut-out switch. Falling off and landing on a high speed treadmill can cause serious injuries and skin gashing. And if you can't get off on time while you're being rolled over as you fall it would make stopping the treadmill difficult. Always face the treadmill towards a wall, so if you fall and land on the floor belt, you will be tossed away from the machine. But if you face the treadmill towards the room and the back is towards the wall, if you fall you will not escape the roll-over and will be caught on the floor belt rolling and rolling again until your body has a clearance between the treadmill and the wall. Never play games just for the fun of it or to show your friends, cause treadmills can kill with a blow in the head from a fall.

My goddaughter slobbered on my polaroid i735 camera in the battery part and now it wont turn on what can i do to fix it

You can't fix slobbering except with time. The kids do it when they're near or in the teething stage. In a year or so, it goes away. Sorry, but that's how kids are. The manual says this if you'd RTFM.

As for the Camera, which I realize isn't your question but I care more about tech than my kids, I'd say your best bet is to take the battery off, make sure its *DRY* without doing something dumb like baking it. Then take a pencil and use the eraser to clean the copper contacts. Make sure the pencil eraser shredding parts fall to the floor (for the kid to eat) instead of fall into the holes in the camera. Clean both the battery and the camera. Time might fix this. The big thing is to get the camera into low humidity environment to encourage it to dry. I don't recommend a trip to Saudi Arabia but if you're going anyway, take it along.

You probably got slobber into the camera via the holes for the battery connector. Taking a camera apart is pretty high-tech and tiny screwdrivers. A vacuum cleaner might **** some of it out without real damage but be gentle with the metal on metal. *AFTER* you clean out the camera, try the kid's mouth for good measure/prevention.

Remote control doesn't work

well, you have not given us a lot of info to go by. First thing is to replace the batteries with fresh ones. make sure the DVD recorder is in full view by the remote control, nothing in the way, not in a cabinet, etc.

When i start it for the first time everyday it idels ruff and when i give it gas it just falls flat on its face. its like it only gets enough fuel for an idel even though the gas pedal is on the floor. but...

Try changing the pickup coil in the distributor? This one had a lot of mechanics baffled, the guy at Auto Zone nailed it on the head. Cheap fix if that is it. Always overlooked

Camera wont turn on.

Hi there do not worry . It can be fixed. After fall down on the floor the lens guide pin is damaged or the power supply connection disconnect from the inside. That's why its not recognized the power supply. In both case the solution is visit service center they will fix it for you. Maximum charged is 40 - 70 USD. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Sorry, but 40 centimeters is a lot for a camera that isn't shockproof.

Camera won't record


First of all, English is not my natural language, so please forgive me. My canon elura 100, bought in the US 1 year ago, had the same problem. After a big fall (from a second floor), the camera landed in wet sand and after that the camera won't record again (it plays the recorded files just ok). Just today i had the time to check the camera, so i disassemble the camera and found a poorly connected cable, that goes from from the lens body to the motherboard of the camera. After reconnecting this cable the camera start recording again.

Most of digital cameras are sensitive to falls especially on a stiff surface. You just have a bad luck.
