When you state that you have cleaned the entire camera have you removed the lens and cleaned the back element and have you fired the shutter with the lens off and the dial set to B so the shutter will remain open and cleaned the lens behind the mirror? If not I think you have some more cleaning to do.

Pictures all white


i'm assumming the film was in the camera?If so the film was exposed to the air and if expired this will cause white pics.If film was in sealed package than it still is film related, you bought new batteries so again persumming film is very old.Sounds like shutters are opening if white,black photo's are shutter problems. hope i helped!

I put a fresh new pack of film into my Fuji film instax 210 camera but only used it to take two pictures. The next day when I tried to take a picture, it came out completely white. Why is that? It is very...


Completely white photos on an Instax, or any instant camera means the film has been exposed somehow. Check to be sure the film door is completely closed, and latched properly. If it is, it's possible, though unlikely, that your camera's shutter is stuck open. It'd be easy to check, simply look at the front of your camera into the lens, and see if you see any mechanical bits, now take a picture and see if you see any of them move - movement means working, no movement means not. If the entire camera back opens (I'm not sure if it does) you can also open it and do the same thing, looking to see if you see light through the camera when you're looking through the lens but not taking a picture - if you do the lense is stuck open. This, however, would require removing and wasting whatever film is remaining in it right now.

How many photos do you get from a film? how many photos do you get out of the battery?


On the only photo packs now available you get 8 shots per pack. The battery is built into the photo pack and is replaced every time you replace the photo pack, so you only get eight shots from it.

Original photo packs are all now long out of date and are mostly useless as the batteries have all gone so flat that they won't last an entire photo pack. The chemicals inside the photos are also usually stale and so produce odd results if you use the photo packs on a camera modified to take an external power supply.

New photo packs are now available from The Impossible Project.

I click a photo, but the film doesn't come out of the camera?


That's entirely to be expected. ALL original Polaroid photo packs are now so far out of date that the in-built battery packs will be either completely dead or will have just enough power to eject the initial dark slide protector. Unless the camera has been modified to accept an external 6v dc power supply then there's no way to use these old photo packs reliably.

A company has been set up and is producing new photo packs though, but currently only in small batches, black and white only, and there are only 8 shots per pack instead of the original 10 shots. The material is also rather unstable, so it's a good idea to scan the photos if you want to save the images produced. Check out The Impossible Project for details.

I just put a new film in my polaroid 600 camera and the black card comes out fine...but everytime i take a picture the flash goes off as normal but nothing comes out,,,why is this? :(


The battery is almost certainly nearly flat. It has enough power to trickle charge the flash but not enough to power the ejection rollers after the initial cover sheet. The photo packs are now long out of date so most remaining packs have flat batteries. The only fix is to convert the camera to accept an external 6v dc power supply. New photo packs in black and white only with just eight shots per pack are now available, but the material isn't very stable or predictable and is strictly for enthusiasts only. Check out The Impossible Project for details.

The other possibility is an ejection motor failure. As the cameras are worthless and plentiful and also tend to break when dismantled (entirely clip together casing which was never intended to come apart again) it's not really worth repairing them.

How to make date etc appear on back of photos


The date usually only appears on the front. However, most retail photo labs (i.e. walmart) can add custom backprinting to your photos. You can usually only add one line of text for entire order and custom pricing would probably make this a little bit expensive. On that note, the date you have your film developed/printed is usually printed on the back of each print for free, as this is default setting for the lab's printer.

Canon AE-1 Program needs cleaned or am I missing a step?


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

I am guessing it may of been lying around for a while, some of the parts have stopped moving right, a good strip and service will solve it. There was a manual to service these years back or take to a service agent

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks
