You will have to navigate your Tools screens to set a longer auto off period as the auto off isn't working for you. Otherwise, I've seen this when the recharable battery no longer retains a suffcient charge to satisfy the camera even though it is still usable. If the camera thinks there is only 10% of battery charge left in the capacity of the battery it will default to shut off, not sleep, anyway no matter what you do.

You may need to try another or newer/new battery if all else above failes.

I bought a polaroid pdc 5055 today from a second hand shop,as it has no manual i dont know how to use it,but i put some new batteries in and they lasted 1-2 mins! do i need to use rechargeables or any...

Here is a link to download a free copy of the manual. You can go through the manual and see if you are required to use a special type of battery or if it is just faulty.
Hope this helped?

How to set time and date on polaroid pdc 3080

Hello I am an expert on this particular model. Unfortunately with this certain camera it is not possible to edit the time and date. However I have a very simple solution which should take care of everything.

First you need to head over to Menards and pick up a 2 and 1/2 inch screwdriver model D604-5q. I have personally researched this camera and this is the only screw driver that works, unless of course you have a B2 socket Dingo wrench which can only be purchased in Australia. After you have purchased this screwdriver simply send the camera to me along with the proper tools and I will do my best to fix it and then I will send it back.

Option 2. Buy a 32 GB memory stick and insert it in your computer. Download a program called Clock X-pertm this can be found from a simple google search. After you have unzipped it, be sure to format it to your HQC proxy shrink located in the Sr400 wing of your Registry. Insert the stick into the camera, follow the quick 25 steps and you will be one step closer to accessing the Time and Date on your camera.

If everything is done correctly, this should take no more than 10-12 weeks.
