Having problems with your Polaroid T831 Digital Camera ?

Answers :


Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Anything is fixable but it is more "is it cost effective"

It won't turn on even with a fully charged battery. What do I do? I've owned it for at least 5 years and have three batteries and a pentax charger that turns green when a battery is charged.

My camera is less than a year old but has recently been giving problems with the battery connection - I believe. The battery shows full and the camera works perfectly, then with no indication why the camera will not turn on. When left and then turned on later it sometimes works again, without the battery being charged in the meantime and with it again showing full.

Camera's about 2 years old. With a fully charged battery it will take about 8 to 10 photos and then the battery indicates total discharge.

My 2-year old camera has a blank screen when trying to take a picture. If you go ahead and shoot, the picture processes properly--you just can't set up a shot.
