Question about Polaroid 690 SLR Instant Camera
I loaded new film into the camera, took two shots with it which were pretty much fine, and then upon trying to take a third several hours later, the camera focoused on the subject but when I clicked all the way down to take the picture the camera made clicking noises and the shutter opened and closed but no pictures came out.
Have you tried a new filmpack. Reason for asking is if you have an old filmpack, since the batteries are stored in each filmpack, sometimes expired or old filmpacks have been sitting around and lose some of their power. This makes the battery dead or low voltage that can drive all the shutters and lens focus, but fail to extract the film after exposure. Also check your rollers in front that they move and the gear on the side for wear. Another test is to set the flash on and time how long it takes for the flash to get ready. Anything over one minute is too long and I would replace the filmpack with a newer one. BTW: Most 600 filmpacks are old and stored for long periods.
