Vivitar Instant Slide Printer

How do I insert the film pack into the Vivitar Printer? I opened the top and slide the film pack into place with the black paper facing upward. What and how do I get the film to the roller? I've never worked with pull apart film before. Thanks

Polaroid 600 film cameras only have a single battery, built into the film packs. To remove the film pack, open the door on the door and grip the sides of the pack and slide it out.

How do i load the film


There's a sliding catch on the left side of the camera (as viewed from the front) at the forward edge. Slide it and the lower front panel drops down to reveal the loading slot. Insert the photo pack (you may need to remove an old empty photo pack first).

If the new photo pack is an original Polaroid one, then because they are all so old and far out of date then you may find that the battery is totally dead or has just enough power to eject the cover slide and perhaps one photo. If that is the case either convert your camera to accept an external 6v dc power supply before using the expensive photo pack or buy a freshly manufactured compatible pack from The Impossible Project.

Mamiya 645 pro shutter doesn't fire


First thing that comes to mind on this camera is that it's a modular camera. This means the film back can be changed mid roll so there is what is called a Dark Slide between the film back and the body.

The dark slide needs to be removed before the camera will function. Also depending on how "new" the film back is there may be a dark slide holder/sleeve on the back side of the film back.

So you remove the dark slide and slide is into the holder so first you don't loose it and also it doesn't get bent.

I have purchased a used camera and I do not know what the dark slide is for. Do you pull it out before you take a picture? What is it for. Is it so you can remove the back with film in it? This is the...


After loading the back with film, the dark slide is inserted so you may remove the back without ecxposing the film. Suppose you had 2 different back, 1 with b&w and the other has color. You are shooting with color. Load the color film and before shooting, remove the dark slide. After a few shots, you decide to change to B&W, insert the dark slide, change backs, remove that dark slide and continue shooting. This is assuming that you have 2 dark slides, 1 for each back. If you only have 1 dark slide, then the back that is not on the camera needs it if it is loaded with film and the other back will have to stay on the camera.

Check to see if the film is still good because if it is not the built in battery might have died. Check to make sure that the film was going in the correct way and that nothing was blockin the film pack from going in.

Can't open vivitar 5388


Use the rewind knob to rewind the film. Once the film is rewound, lift the knob up and the back should open. Then you can remove the film cassette and insert a new cassette and load the film.

Battery


The battery pack is built into the film cartridge. Every time you insert a new film pack, you get a fresh battery. Problem is, you are going to have a hard time finding Polaroid film, as they have ceased production of most of their instant film packs.

Film won't advance


Perhaps you've already solved the mystery. There are 2 parts to the back of that camera, the film back + the part that it slips onto. And they have little safety latches/pins that couple in order to advance the film & release the shutter. I'm sure those just aren't in the right place. Here in Los Angeles you could take it to any major camera store or repair shop & they've help you out.
