Re: Beep - Beep - Beep - but No Picture

1. If the camera can not focus on a subject, or can not determine the appropriate exposure setting, the camera will beep and disable the shutter button. This is to avoid improper processing of the image. This is usually due to either poor lighting conditions or movement. 2. The camera Flash Element requires ten seconds to recharge between images. Although the camera is ready to continue capturing images almost immediately in bright (daylight) settings, if you are using Flash photography the Flash element will need to charge between shots. If you try to take a picture before the Flash is charged, the camera will beep and disable the shutter button. Once the Flash unit is fully charged (10 seconds), the camera is ready to continue. 3. The batteries may be running low. LCD Display, Flash, and Playback use much more power than taking pictures. It is possible to quickly consume battery power, even if you are not taking many pictures. Try turning the Mode Dial to the OFF position to recycle power. If the camera beeps and will not take a picture under normal conditions, you may need to change batteries. Please refer to the section pertaining to Battery Life.

My camera will not immediately take a picture.


The beep and no shutter action is usually because the auto focus is not focused. If you are using a zoom lens try backing up or unzooming a little.

What.....


I think I had the same problem as you... I found it was a power issue. I needed stronger batteries. Lithiums worked well.

No Picture


1. If you are using TIFF mode for uncompressed images, the camera takes much longer to process the image because of the very large file size. It takes longer between shots and longer to play back a TIFF image. The TIFF setting on the camera Top LCD Display is 'No Stars' (One Star = Basic, Two Stars = Normal, Three Stars = High Resolution, No Stars = be patient for TIFF). Unless you are doing professional images, we suggest that you use the normal or high resolution JPG settings (Two or Three Stars / FULL) for good results. 2. If the camera can not focus on a subject, or can not determine the appropriate exposure setting, the camera will beep and disable the shutter button. This is to avoid improper processing of the image. This is usually due to either poor lighting conditions or movement. 3. The camera Flash Element requires ten seconds to recharge between images.

Beep


The Polaroid Fun! Digital 320 camera is programmed to shut off automatically after a few minutes if it is not being used. This helps to conserve battery power. When the camera shuts itself off, it will make a continual beeping sound. To use the camera after it has shut off, simply push the shutter button or self-timer button to take a picture. If you are not going to use your camera, turn the power switch to OFF. The camera will also beep in rapid sequence after you press the self-timer button. The camera will continue to beep in faster sequence until a picture is taken (approximately 10 seconds). A final long beep signals that a picture has been taken. NOTE: It is normal for the camera to beep while downloading photos to a computer.
