Having problems with your Polaroid I533P Digital Camera ?

I have a i530 that won't stay turned on. It beeps a really strange sounding beep three times, then goes directly off. The lens is protruding out, and the eye itself is only half open. I have changed the batteries. Brand new batteries are in it...Now what??


Answers :

Haha ok so same thing happened to me. Basically i thought it was ruined so i threw it pretty hard on the ground while still on and then tried turning it on to see if i had busted it and the problem was fixed. Kinda unorthodox but worth it if you want ur camera to be more than a paperweight.
Your problem may be due to corrosion on the\015\012battery contacts inside the camera\015\012which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the\015\012camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the\015\012batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with\015\012a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,\015\012steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen\015\012into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of\015\012the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears\015\012the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your camera may have\015\012a problem that requires professional repair.
