Having problems with your Polaroid T831 Digital Camera ?

Turns off right away

\015 My battery was dead, when I went to the beach. Sand got inside the camera. However, I believe I got it all out. Then I came home, charged the battery for a night. It says the battery is charged. I turn on the camera and it turns directly back off (after about a second). It says the battery is charged since there is no "X" across the battery picture in the right hand corner. What should I try?\015

Answers :

You probably didn't get all the sand out and now it's preventing the lens from opening correctly prompting the camera to shut down.

FORMATTED DISK For some reason, when I turned my camera on tonight, it was on the screen that asks whether or not you want to format the card. I SAID NO! But then it said BUSY ..

EX-S880 Shutdown I have a problem with my camera where it will automatically shut down as soon as I push the shutter button. The on/off button will not turn the camera on, but it will turn it off.
