Question about Cameras
Hi-I have a Polaroid a801 when I turn my camera on, it powers up fine, but when I want to take a picture the red light that blinks before my camera is ready to take a picture with flash will not stop blinking. If I change modes, to a picture w/o flash, I do not have a problem.
It may be the batteries, If using rechargeables one may be weak. try new batteries and check the battery contacts are all clean use a pencil eraser or a cotton bud (Qtip) moistened (not wet) with isopropyl alcohol (tape/stylus cleaning fluid)
If that dose'nt help Im sorry to say the flash is probably faulty as it would appear to be trying to charge but not reaching a full charge
