Polaroid miniportrait 403

My polaroid miniportrait 403 stopped working. Battery is full, built-in flash can charge and I see green light in view finder as well. When I push the shutter botton, I hear a noise from the camera, front bottom, next to "studio express" logo. Please let me know what the problem is if you know. Thank you.

Classic polaroid camera don't know how to tell if it works

All film pack contain a 6v battery pack. It sounds like this one had only enough power to charge the flash and turn on the green ready light. There may not be enough power left to take the picture and eject the film. You will need to try a new film pack which will have a new battery.

The battery in the film pack may be dead, or the camera is broken. Take the film pack out and replace it. If the camera does not reset then the camera is gone.

What is this wheel beside the portrait selector for?

Yes, the wheel aligns the area of the film to be exposed. To get four different images on one piece of film you would have to turn the wheel for each exposure.
