KS\015\012\015\012Yes My Polaroid is only 6 months old and I lost my receipt so Wal-Mart will not exchange it. My lens is stuck half way out and the green LED lights turns on only for a little while and then it goes off.\015

Answers :

I am sorry to tell you this but that camera is beyond economical repair.
\015\012I have attempted to repair two of these cameras and failed to purchase the parts required.
\015\012The fault lies in the gearing that drives the lens in and out, the gears get out of alignment with one another (ususally when the lens is extended) and sieze thus burning out the small motor that drives them.
\015\012I have searched and searched for a source for spares and never found one.
Hi,

\015\012Fix #1: Remove the batteries from\015\012the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in\015\012(preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera\015\012on. \015\012
Fix #2: Remove the\015\012batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install the new batteries,\015\012when you turn it on it should come back to life.

Fix #3:\015\012Insert the cameras AV cable, and turn the camera on in picture review\015\012mode. Have no idea why this would work, except that quite a few people\015\012have reported some success with it.

Fix #4:\015\012Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling.\015\012Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the\015\012power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus\015\012while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide\015\012pins in their slots.

Fix #5: Blow compressed\015\012air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out\015\012any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other\015\012variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or\015\012sucking the gaps with a vacuum (careful with this one).

\015\012Now\015\012we're entering into the realm of potentially damaging your camera in\015\012conducting the fix. There is definitely some risk here, so take care\015\012when conducting the following two fixes.
Fix #6:\015\012Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the\015\012intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. Other\015\012variations include hitting a side of the camera against the palm of\015\012your hand. A lot of people have reported success with this method.\015\012HOWEVER, there is also some potential for damaging or dislodging\015\012internal components with this method, such as unseating ribbon cables,\015\012or cracking LCD screens.

Fix #7: Try forcing\015\012the lens. More people have reported success with this method than with\015\012any of the other methods. HOWEVER, there's obviously some potential for\015\012damaging your camera by using this method. Variations include gently\015\012pulling, rotating, and/or twisting the lens barrel while hitting the\015\012power button. Attempt to gently straighten or align the barrel if it's\015\012crooked or twisted. Another variation includes looking for uneven gaps\015\012around the lens barrel, and then pushing on the side of the lens barrel\015\012that has the largest gap (note pushing the lens barrel all the way in\015\012is NOT recommended as it may become stuck there). While doing any of\015\012the above, listen for a click that indicates that the lens barrel guide\015\012pins may have reseated in their guide slots. If you hear this click,\015\012immediately stop and try the camera

While at the beach, someone threw a frizbee at my wife and she dropped the camera in the sand. We were careful as we could be picking it up to avoid entrance of sand into the camera. It worked fine until the next day and the lens opened and stuck. I opened the case to remove and sand that entered the camera. While removing the flash it went off and now the camera doesn't even turn on. I assume something touched and blew a fuse. Is this fixable and if so where do I start?

I purchased the Moultrie D444 camera. I set it up according to instructions and did the "AIM' to see the range. Problem is, the camera does not detect anything smaller than a person. It will pick up a person, but not the birds or squirrels, etc. I took photos standing behind the camera of birds and squirrels. Took the card out of the Moultrie and the only thing on it was a photo of me taking the card out. What am I doing wrong?

I dropped the camera this morning & now it wont turn on at all. I am just sick. Help! It fell on the top edge by the zoom button. When I picked it up, the side door (usb input etc.) was open.

I may as well just get a new camera.

Lens spring/s A couple of weeks ago I got the dreaded lens error. In my case it was probably due to sand. I took the camera apart and when I came to disassembling the lens - the spring popped and fell on the floor - as I picked it up it caught in the carpet and I ruined it. So my question is where do I get a replacement without sending the whole camera back to Canon? Also is there 2 springs, as there seems to be hooks for 2?
