Question about Polaroid Cameras

1 Answer

I just purchased a i936 yesterday. Put batteries in, turned on. The lens extended, lens door opened,the screen says Polaroid with color bars. Then, lens retracts, screen says Goodbuy w/ bars. I tried new batteries, I got into the menu and did reset. No image on screen, except commands.The above situation lasts about 3-4 seconds.

    Well, I am an electronic tech myself (general). I figured this might
    be the case. I was hoping to avoid all the hassle of refunds and stuff,
    since I am running crazy trying to get out of town!!!!! (hah!)

The lens will automatically retract in and will say Goodbye, only if the batteries were empty or drained. However, in your case, you have purchased a new battery and in face the camera is new. The reset is supposed to be bringing back the camera into factory defaults but failed as well. You needed to bring back that unit to where you bought it from and exchange for a new one, otherwise, you might encounter other problems in the future since that particular unit is defective.

My polaroid i633 won't work!


YOur camera is looking for verification that the lens is extending. Once it sees the lens has extended when you power on, the sensors in the lens tell the Operating system that the lens is Ok.
If it does NOT see verification from the lens, it shuts down. Never force your lens back in. You may have to take the camera apart to reset the lens. you do this by removing the Zoom gear drive assembly and free you lens up by hand. 1 grain of sand or grit is like a Monkey Wrench in a Gear cog. Clear the obstruction with a can of compressed air, and work the lens with your hand. once you can that put it all back together and it should work.

Lens stuck open


In a nutshell, this error happens when the lens gets stuck while trying to extend and comes slightly out of alignment. Particularly if it's been dropped while open. The lens gets stuck in the extended position, and refuses to move either to focus the lens or to retract when powered off.

If your camera is still under warranty, the best thing you can do have Polaroid should fix it. If your camera is out of warranty, or if Polaroid refuses to repair it for free, the one thing you can try is to If you gently, and I do mean GENTLY push against the lens with the PALM of your hand as you turn it on, it may cause it to depress back into the camera. If that doesn't work, and you can't reset it or turn it on/off several times, then you may have to send it in for a repair estimate anyway.
