Having problems with your Polaroid i832 Digital Camera ?

It acts like it's turning on, but doesn't


\015 I just got a new camera due to other digital camera complications. I loved my old one but it just stopped turning on. It has never been dropped nor had anything spilled on it.. I gave up on it and got a new one. NOW, this one just suddenly stopped too. I went to change the batteries and it turned on for a second then went black. The lense comes out, but wont go back in. Then, if I hit the play button while the lense is in (which i have to manually put in) i can veiw my pictures. But as for taking pictures, it doesn't happen. The little red light will flash and that's how far it goes. HELP ME PLEASE! i am about sick and tired of digital cameras at this point!\015

Hi:\015\012\015\012With your description of the problem it seams to me that your camera doesn't have enought energy to continuo working properly. The view pictures mode always takes less energy to work while the shooting mode... a lot because it has to load several things on the camera, including the access to the card.\015\012\015\012My advice is for you to try with different batteries but with a lot of mAh. The recharchable batteries have those numbers that, in a small definition, the higher the value more pictures you can take. Try to get 2 x AA batteries with at least 2100 mAh and try the turn on your camera. I think it will solve the situation.\015\012\015\012;)\015\012\015\012Regards

No Power After flying on a recent trip and having my camera x-rayed it acted strange. When I turned it on it asked me on screen if I would like to update the software. I selected the no option, then NO IMAGE appeared on the screen. I turned it off and back on again with the same results, update question then no image. I did this again and answered yes to the update question and it began the updating process as indicated on the screen by a bar but never made it past 50%. This went on for 5

Will a 1500 mAh battery work in a Kodak DX 7590? The original battery was a 1700 mAh. Everything else is the same as the original battery. I thought the original battery was going dead and wouldn't re-charge, so I bought a new battery. The camera acts like it wants to turn on, but doesn't. The power comes on briefly, but camera lens doesn't open. The ring around the settings dial flashes green., then turns to red, and shuts off. Please help!!!! I love this camera!!!


The answer is YES, the Kodak DX 7590 can be supported by a Li-Ion 1700 mAh battery. The only difference is that the 1700 last longer. Just make sure the one you just purchased is fully charged. Otherwise, exchange that battery from the store you b ... Kodak EasyShare DX7590 Digital Camera

Zooming FE-280 camera - Worked great for about 2 weeks. While on vacation developed a problem - when you turn the camera on the lens goes in and out like it is trying to focus. Once it is through with the lens action when you try to set up for a picture (any mode) and focus on the subject the camera will not focus and then shuts down. Acts like the battery is dead but camera shows fully charged battery. Any ideas?

When I turn the camera on, the canon logo appears on the display and the red light in back above the menu button keeps blinking, but nothing happens.

I have a Nikon D80 camera that is about 1 year old. I has worked fine until about 6 months ago. Sometimes when I turn it on and press the button to take the picture nothing happens. I have to wait awhile and keep playing with the button and then it will finally take the picture and act normal. This happens inside and out. Sometimes the flash will pop up outside in direct sunlight. Do I have some settings wrong or why is it acting like this?


Are you getting a Err message? If so The ERR message is not a good thing. Read page 132 of the D80 Manual. Also, try a factory reset found on page 129 of the manual. On the left side of the camera is the terminal cover, inside below the USB connector ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens
