    You have posted a solution which can done only by an camera technician. your comment is forcing to value your solution rather than accepting that this didn't solve the problem.

    Thanks again for trying.

Digital camera a really a pain arnt they will several things could be causing you problem. solider joint broke, cracked board, loose ribbon cable, any of these will cause your problem. now there is hope. if you are filmier with the inside of a digital camera than tear into it lol. If not you need to send it in to a service center like mine once received we can better determine your problem.

    There is no other solution for a dead camera I am not tiring to force nothing. I am letting you know that this is the only solution your problem is one of several possibilities and I was tiring to give you the best answer to correcting your problem if you are skilled in diagnosing digital camera problems you would know that there are several part like the main board, or a cold solder joint, loose cable, corroded battery terminal, and other damaged circuit in the camera can cause this problem. with out the proper test equipment you can not correctly fix this problem. I was tiring to let you know that there is no easy fix to your problem and letting you know that there are places out their that can fix your camera that have the expertise to help you out that is all nothing more.

Recently i left my camera battery in a disharged condition now the camera wont come on.

Hello there,

It sounds like your rechargeble battery is dead.
You will have to buy a replacement battery.

Rechargeable battery Lithium-ion battery (BP70A, 740 mAh)

You will probably get it cheapest on Ebay. Make sure the Ebay picture matches your Battery.

The way to get your Battery out of the Camera is on Page 15 of your user Manual.

If you have not got it, you can download it here

The camera is totally dead. no power on.

I think the battery is bad. Try to recharge the battery and place it back. I hope it will retract the lens complete. Consider to buy a new battery or a complete new camera, because batteries can cost almost as much as a new camera.

My polaroid t831 is completly dead. i lost my battery charger and i only have the computer USB charger left. but it doesn't work at all. I have tried to look online for polaroid chargers but i had no luck...

I found chargers and batteries for this camera by searching Amazon for "polaroid t831". There are also cheap universal chargers that will charge any small camera or phone battery, like THIS ONE

Most cameras don't charge from the USB cable.

Hello there, My Samsung ES55 recently stopped working completely (not turning on) for no apparent reason. I had been taking lots of photos, 153 to be exact, and then it just didn't work. It was still...

There may be a fault requiring service (probably not economically viable if they won't do it under warranty), but before you go there, does this camera have a "Macro" feature? This is usually represented by an icon that looks like a flower. If you have set that on, the camera goes into an extreme close-up mode and won't focus on items at normal distances.

Some cameras have a "face recognition" mode that tries to find a face in the shot and focus on that, so check your autofocus modes to see if it is set to something odd like that.

Camera completely dead after all-night charge

try resetting the camera using a toothpick or a paperclip. There is a small hole on the tripod thread on the bottom side of the camera. I hope it helps.
