A camera with a good ol' roll of film is very different from the versatile digital cameras (and even cell phones) available today.
Yes, you'll need film. You'll need to chose an ISO (which is something that is merely a setting on digital devices), so it depends if you will want to shoot by day, night, still objects, moving objects, etc... A higher ISO will make you more versatile, but will also add more grain to the picture (which could be a wanted effect).
I suggest you carry it into a specialized camera store and they'll be able to help you discover your dad's camera.
It's probably more an issue of how/where that one image was taken in relation to the others than it is an issue of the physical condition of that one photo.
Different lighting conditions can fool the in-camera light meter and cause a photo that is either too light or too dark, and this is probably that happened. Or, sometimes someone doesn't notice and their hand/finger is over the electric eye. Generally if an image is "bad", it'll be dark or non-existant on Polaroid cameras, because of the process they use.
Something we have all been wrestling with over the years, LOL. quality pictures in gloomy weather conditions
? I suggest using the flash as often as you can in those conditions, and get yourself a tripod. When the skies turn grey, there's less light, so the camera keeps the shutter open longer, which means more likelihood of a blurred image due 2 camera movement. Flash use speeds up the shutter, but will use more battery power. Another issue: with 100 ASA film, the flash is only good for about 12 feet. Distance improves with higher ASA film, but quality suffers due to film grain.
You haven't specified what camera model you have, but I suspect the problem could be due to the white balance setting on the camera. Read your owners manual and check the section on adjusting the white balance. If you have it set for something opposite to the actual ambient lighting condition (ie the setting is for incandescent light bulbs, and you are shooting outdoors in sunlight, for example), then it can really throw the colour spectrum off.
I am guessing that the film is supposed to wind itself on when you close the camera? If you open the camera you may see that the film "leader" has not been drawn into the camera. When you load the film pull a small amount of the film (1 or 2 inches) out from the canister and place it into the (usually) right hand side of the camera where you will see the gears waiting to engage in the sprockets to pull the film in. The film should also lay flat across the rear of the camera where there are gears top and bottom that should engage with the film.Also check you have fresh batteries.
I wish i could help you, but Pentax's manual is poor and many people (over the net) face Pentax error message with no meaning... Try replacing the batteries if you haven't already, if it doesn't help I would take it to a local camera repair shop. If they can't help you call ProCamera in harlottesvile VA. He collects pentax owns his own shop. He's been in business for 12 yr's and he is also a succesful photoghrapher. I've heard nothing but the best about this guy Bill Moretz. I have a pentax if anything happens to it i know where i'm shipping it of too and pentax is the only camera i will own. His prices are right so the shipping costs are worth it.
