Having problems with your Polaroid Digital Cameras ?

My camera does not work. when i put it on all it does is beep 3 time.. i want to know what is wrong with it?

Answers :


If indeed the 3 beeps indicate a weak battery (and even with new or fully charge), a strong possibility is that the\015\012camera's battery terminals/contacts are corroded and therefore not\015\012providing good contact to the battery. What is required therefore is to\015\012scrape/clean said camera contacts. In some instances, it would help to\015\012slightly bend the contacts (or stretch if spring type) to ensure that they provide more pressure to the batteries.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
Often, this is a signal for battery replacement and many cameras are real battery hogs.

My camera has been on a easyshare dock a very long time. One time when the dock was unplugged, I plugged it back in, and put the camera on it.

Video duration I have a GE A835. I want to take video. It shows that I can only take thirty minutes with a 1 gig card. The only thing that I can think of is that there is some reason it is putting the files on the camera memory instead of the card. I have used all the settings I can find to put video on card. I know that it has to take longer than that. My PHONE will take 14 hours. I would be happpy with less quality for more time. HELP

Camera vibration I've had the camera for over a year. Some time ago I started to notice the vibration problem, but it would stop after a few seconds. It has been gradually getting worse.

Canon Squeal I recently bought a Canon A1 35mm film camera off eBay. The outside is in amazing condition but the seller did not use the camera for a very long time so it had not been lubricated. I put a new battery in it and pressed the shutter release button and heard a squeal and the shutter was staying open way too long. I'm not experienced enough to trust lubricating it myself and wanted to know if you did this in your store and if you could give me an estimate on how much it would cost. I'm
