First, remove the SD card (if there is one) and see if it works. If it does, then the SD card is damaged. If it still doesnt work, read on..

Try regular alkaline batteries. If they work, it could indicate that your rechargeable batteries are dead and need to be replaced, or there is a problem with the charger.

If the regular batteries dont work either, try cleaning the contacts in the battery compartment of your camera, or gently scratching the contacts with a jeweller's screwdriver. If it still does not work, there is an issue with the camera's power board and it will require servicing.

Depending of what you use, always be sure all batteries are the same, charged and suited for your camera. Most of the time even new Ni-CD rechargeable batteries won't work, because the voltage is to low, according to NiMH or alkaline batteries.
Always charge NiMH batteries before using them for the first time, or if they have not been used for a long period. 3 months is a very long period.
Always charge sets of batteries (2 or 4) together.
Do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In some cases, alkaline batteries may have a shorter service life than NiMH. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in your camera.

Can i use nimh rechargeable batteries with an old film camera

Yes you may. The caution against NiCads is that they have a different discharge curve and won't last very long in a camera. NiMHs are much better, though they still won't last as long as alkalines.

In any case, don't leave the batteries in the camera if you're not going to be using it for a long period (weeks or longer).

How do I set the mode

Sorry, but there are no modes on the Kodak Cameo Focus Free 35mm. It's exactly what it is, a very basic 35mm point and shoot model. Even the shutter speed and aperture are fixed according to the film speed selected. Other than the provision of the flip up flash (turned on by using the flash switch and off by using the same switch or by closing the flash) your camera is absolutely as simple as it gets.

Perhaps if you explain exactly what you're trying to do with your camera I can provide further assistance, or perhaps you have a different make and model altogether?

Not rewinding

You have a really cheap and basic camera (with no disrespect to it), so unless you simply have a flat camera battery you realistically have just three choices:-

1. If the camera is still under manufacturer's warranty, then contact Kodak for an exchange. They won't even attempt a repair but will just confirm it's not working and usually send you another or possibly try to fob you off with a credit voucher towards the cost of a new replacement.

2. Replace it with another camera.

3. Take yours apart, try to work out what's wrong and reassemble it. You're on your own with this as there will not be any repair manuals nor will there be any specific spare parts available, but if it's just a failed solder joint or a failed generic cheap electric motor/microswitch then repair costs will be low. It may be difficult to dismantle your model though as it was never designed to be repaired so to save costs the casing may be assembled with glue and one-way clips only.

Note that it's not all as gloomy as it sounds: if there is no warranty, then even a failed attempt at a DIY repair will give you valuable experience and there is absolutely no need to pay for a replacement camera. There are millions of perfectly good (and often superior to yours) 35mm compact cameras lying forgotten and unused, probably just in need of a new battery and almost all are now practically worthless. This means that they are regularly offered on your local FreeCycle/Freegle groups and if there are none at the moment then a request for one usually is highly successful (but FreeCycle/Freegle rules usually insist that your first posting is to offer something).

Good luck, and please take a brief moment to rate my reply.

History of polaroid 600 quality.

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.

Can i use any 9 volt battery in the kodak k12? If

Yes, usually there is a sticker inside the battery chamber that shows the correct orientation of the contact. If stick is missing, the contact go in first. If the camera wont work, turn the battery over and try again If a new battery wont work at all the camera may be gone.

Try changing the battery and reloading the film. You can try emailing fuji as well. If these don't work take it to your local camera store to send away for repair, or a new digital camera.
