Question about Polaroid 420 Film Camera
I had 3 remaining shots on film still in camera so i shot them and they developed beautifully, albeit a tad light in color - when i placed in a new cartridge, the film count lowered with each shot but the pictures did not eject

Possible you got a bad film cassette. In the original Polaroid camera packs they had batteries which actually powered the whole camera. The batteries may be dead or not have much charge in them. They are good for a couple years and as you indicate the expiration is up in another month... Good luck

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.

Yes, you would need film. The film pack contains the battery that powers the camera.
For reference, see:

How old is the film in it?
Polaroid film packs have a battery included (a polarpulse powercell, I think).
If its an old film, the battery can go flat and as far as I'm aware there's no way to get power in to it.
I would take the cartridge out, (effectively not use the last shot), try a new cartridge to see if its working properly, then send the old cartridge back to Polaroid, if you think its faulty.
