There could be something obstructing the lens. Camera turns off if it can't extend and retract the lens. Turn it downward, try helping the lens in as you turn it on, try blowing compressed air around the lens itself, or if all else fails spraying around the base with a light dusting of CRT cleaner (90% isopropal alcohol spray)

My polaroid i733 turns on the beeps 3 times then turns off when the sd card is in. i have tried formatting the card and camera but it still is not working any help


Had the same problem with our i733 Pink Polaroid. Beeps three times and then shuts off. The reason for this is that the lens is stuck in the partially open position. Because our camera was long past warranty and we bought it for $40 second hand I took the brute force approach. I grabbed hold of the lens and wiggled it from side to side while trying to pull it out (forcefully but being as careful as I could not to damage it) and then there was a small "pop" and the lens came out all the way and the camera was good to go again. Hope this helps.

I have a polaroid i834 and the lens won't go in or out


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

My Polaroid camera i631 won't turn on!!


Here is the solution for your problem. If you look at your camera at an angle, you will see the zoom lens is little bent to the side. I want you to put press on it to snap-it into it's place. After you heard a click, then turn-on your camera. This will fix your cam.

Camera issues:(


I had the same problem, stuck lens, 3 beeps and shutdown. You must get pissed off at the camera first. Then bite the lens, clenching it like pliars (you could probably use pliars too), turn the camera on and immediately start pilling on the lens in the outward direction. The tooth grip unstuck the lens and vot it worked. you can take this solution to the bank.

Polaroid i834 wont turn on


Same problem; however, after taking a hard look at the camera I noticed that the lens was tweaked; that is, is was not evenly extended so I pulled (by hand) on the inner, extended lens piece and viola; I turned it on, the lens retracted and extended upon application of power as usual.

My guess is the 3 beeps is much like a BIOS error with a PC...when there is a hardware problem they beep on startup...in this case, the camera was letting me know the lens was stuck.

Polaroid i834 turns off imediately after turning turning on.


I had the same problem until just a while ago, when I realized that the lens was tweaked. It was stuck. So I turned the camera on and gave the inside part a yank before it turned off again. It took me a couple of tries but eventually the lens corrected itself and now my camera works fine. If you do it a couple of times and then start to hear three rapid beeps (sounds like 'be-du-dum') before the other three beeps (beep... beep... beep) then your getting somewhere. Hope this helps.
