You cannot repair the broken LCD screen; the white you are seeing is the backlight for it.
LCDs have extremely thin gold deposits along one edge that is contacted by a silicone rubber strip that has fine wires molded into it vertically and one edge is pressed against the LCD panel for contact.
It is a fussy arrangement when new and it sure doesn't get any better when dropped.
I wouldn't delay too long looking for parts or repair; Polaroid filed for bankruptcy last week although I doubt if the parent had anything to do with the manufacture of your camera; as with many companies with limited manufacturing means, the camera was surely built by others.
I had the same problem with my battery door on my i832....bought some glue called "Goop" at Home Depot and this worked just great...would like to order new door if I could ever find the website that has parts. Any ideas?
We had the same problem with my sister's i832. After searching all over, I finally contacted Polaroid directly. For $20, they sent me a brand new battery cover to replace myself. It came with pretty clear instructions, and it was very easy to replace. The price definitely seemed a bit excessive, being a tiny piece of plastic and all. But it was worth it, as opposed to trashing a pretty nice camera.
Now if only we can figure out how to get the flash fixed, since it no longer wants to work anymore.....
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.
