Question about Polaroid a300 Digital Camera

1 Answer

"No Image" when trying to review pics

I have an a300 digital camera. Yerterday when I went to to look at the pics I just took I could not do it-the screen just said "no image". I tried taking a new picture and looking at it-again "no image". I tried plugging to camera into the computer to upload the pics but it just stayed on the loading screen and did not upload anything. I replaced the bateries-not that. I did not run out of room on my memory card-I still have about half of it left(it holds 1200). WHy is it saying "no image"? is it broken? Can I get it back through the menu somehow?

Can you get the card to someone who has a card reader to check it out? Or take the card to your local digital photo processor? Lets come back to the Computer. 1st remove any Polaroid software you may have installed. Then plug the camera in- does a new drive come up in my computer? If yes- can you open it and find a DCIM folder? if Yes Go to www.konvar. and download PC Inspector. This program will find all images on the card if there are any. So det the card checked to see if that is a fault then if it is buy a new card. If the card is not at fault Go the the Polaroid Tech Support Team[You could do this any way to save time]

Hi I can not figure out how to delete pictures off my Polaroid a300. I have tried everything and I still can't figure it out. HELP!


If the pics are on your internal memory, with no card in the camera,go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions. If the pics are on the card and you want to delete just one pic at a time, bring up the pic on the screen and push the button with the garbage can icon...follow the on-screen instructions. If you want to erase the entire card and the pics are safely on your computer, then just do the format thing again with the card in the camera.

Hmm perhaps the USB Cable has dust in it. Have you tried blowing into the ends to clear any dust?

Nothing in viewfinder screen


It has recently come to our attention that the vendor-supplied CCD image sensors used in this Canon digital camera may cause the following malfunction: When the product is used in recording or playback mode, the LCD screen and/or electronic viewfinder may exhibit either a distorted image or no image at all. While reports of this malfunction have been rare in the United States, we have determined that it may occur if the product is exposed to hot and humid environments.

Effective immediately, and regardless of warranty status, Canon will repair, free of charge, products exhibiting the above-mentioned malfunction if the malfunction is caused by the CCD image sensor. Canon will also cover the cost of shipping and handling in connection with this repair.

U.S. residents are kindly directed to contact the Canon Customer Support Center for further assistance at 1-800-828-4040. Support hours are Monday thru Friday - 8:00 AM to 12:00 midnight; and Saturday 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM (all times EST). Alternatively, if electronic support is preferred, please send your email to [email protected]
