I took my izone 300 apart and replaced the battery with one purchased from Digiplant on Ebay for $9.98, shipping included. The battery is a Lithium Polymer 3.7 volt, 280 Mah, but I used a 3.7 volt, 550 Mah. It improves the battery life immensly and the flash never fails like it did on occasion when it was new. Hope this helps everyone looking for a replacement battery.

I took the camera apart via shadowligers vague instructions. I found out the camera has 3 screws on the bottom, 2 are underneath the sticker. so that is how you don't break it taking it apart. The camera is held together with the screws only so once you take out all 11 screws you are good to go. the battery says tjl 402334 280mah on it.
hopefully I can get a replacement on ebay or something.

This is not a complete solution to your battery problem but hopefully its enough to help you since polaroid has the worst customer service possible.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v411/shadowliger/0806080007-00.jpg

the link above is a picture of my izone 300w who at the moment is suffering from the battery problem as well i decided to open it to see the battery. though if you decide to open it i suggest you not only be mildly forceful but all so cautious since the bottom where the card slot may break.(some small pieces snapped off. )

the battery is the small silver thing you see in the picture. this battery is 280mAH battery its small and almost as thin as a credit card. if you want to change the battery try looking for one that looks almost the same or try and mp3/mp4 player battery. for example zen micro. i suggest looking through the internet for the internal batteries but if that search fails buy a cheap small rechargeable mp3 player that you wont feel so bad about breaking and taking it battery.

hopefully this helps. good luck

A640 freeezes while taking pictures


Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

I have a great Mavica FD75 camera and the batteries will not hold a charge. When I put them on the charger the light says lit for a couple of minutes then goes out. I can take 6-10 pictures and get the...


You probably need a new Sony "Infolithium" battery, by now. The battery lasts a long time
but 10 yrs IS a long time! If you've never repl
aced the battery, it's time to. They charge ok
but don't last very long when they're near the
end of their life! (Sounds like what you're
describing.) The little disc battery only works
the memory for the Date / time / etc.

Lost date and time data


I had the same problem, the best solution that I found, was to make sure that I put the new batteries in with 30 secs, and the date etc, remained at the correct time.
