I own a polaroid t730 digital camera. I can take pictures using the existing memory in the camera. As soon as I insert a memory card the camera shuts down except for the red light in the front that comes on and the green light in the back comes on. I am unable to operate any of the buttons while the card is in the memory slot. I have tried 3 different memory cards including a brand new one.

I have a cuddeback capture. When I turn it on it takes a picture every 30 seconds or 1 minute or as often as I have it set. There doesn't have to be any motion. I have replaced the battery's several times and it doesn't help. Even in test mode the red light blinks constantly. I don't suppose this is a simple fix. Thanks Ted Mlnarik

Pictures always come out blurry and/or the lighting is awful regardless of what "scene" i choose. The only one that works "okay" some of the time is "portrait" scene.
