Just had this problem myself. What you do is press the Mode button twice until it shows a black background with the words Memory Error on top of it (this should be the picture preview mode). Then press the Menu button and press the 4-way button right to enter the Setup Menu. Go down and Format the camera and that will fix it.
It's possible that you may have accidentally pressed the DISP button to disable the LCD. Please try to press the DISP button after you switch on the camera. If the display does not show up on the first press, try pressing the button twice or until the LCD turns on.
Please let me know if it fixed the problem. If it doesn't, we'll try other options.
Hey GClooney, Most cameras come with a 1 year manufacturers warranty so the first camera is most likely covered by this and I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician. If you dropped you Polaroid a300 camera then there is most likely internal damage and that should also be addressed by an authorized service technician. I will say that digital camera repairs often exceed the value of the camera, but the first camera repair would most likely be covered by its warranty. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead.

I bought mine 2 1/2 yrs ago too. Found this solution on this site and tried it. It worked perfectly.
Turn to TV mode, set the exposure to 15 seconds by pushing the little "arrow dial" until you have 15"
Push the button to take the picture.
Wait 7 seconds from when you push the button, then turn over and open the battery door while it is "taking the picture."
Close the battery door and turn back on.
I did this three times and the last time, it worked and the iris became unstuck.
Then I took a million pictures to get the iris moving.
This camera has had problems with the operations deck assy, this is the controller that inputs customer commands. Nikon is repairing many of these at little or no charge to the customer depending on the age of the camera. I would call them first to see if they will take care of this for you.
