My daughter has an i733 Polaroid, it will not turn on. Pressing the power button gets 3 low beeps and the green light flashes, the lens won't come out and the screen doesn't come on. It worked fine for 2 months then decided it wouldn't work any longer after inserting a new SD card (while camera was off). I've checked the batteries, they are fine.
Well I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM ALL I GOT WAS A BLACK SCREEN & 3 BEEPS,SO GOT A LETTER OPENER AND STUCK IT IN THE SPACE BETWEEN THE ZOOM LENS A FEW TIME VERY CAREFUL PUSHING DOWN THE POWER BUTTON AT THE SAME TIME AFTER A FEW TIMES THE LENS BECAME UNSTUCK..JUST JIGGLE IT A ROUND A LITTLE BACK AND FORTH WITH A LITTLE FORCE.I HOPE YOUR CAMERA WILL START TO WORK AGAIN LIKE MINE DID.
My camera did this. I called Polaroid customer service and they said that this is lense failure and the camera is completely unfixable. LOL Sooo...if your camera is under warranty bring it back, and if not call Polaroid...they have an out of warranty program that will replace it for $65. For more info: www.pixelstores.com

My Nikon D70 quit working and would only flash a green light. I contacted Nikon and they fixed it, no charge. I was very happy with Nikon for the free repair! If you have this problem, go to the Nikon website and do a search for flashing green light. They cover this problem as a defect and did not ask for any proof of purchase or anything. Very smooth and easy. Thank you Nikon!!!
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.
My Son's camera had the same problem. 3 beeps and
it would turn off with the lens out. I think it must have
been dropped, he says no! Look carefully at your lens
and see if it looks crooked. If it is like his was, pull it out
a bit to straighten it out. His is working fine now!
Hey Ally00, You can try removing the batteries and cleaning the battery contacts with an eraser. By removing the batteries you will also reset the camera to its default settings, which might also help. If this doesn't work I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician such as bringing the camera to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store, and they can send it out to have it serviced. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
