There is no battery in the camera. the battery comes from the film. the film has a battery in it already. you MUST have film in the camera for the light to go on and the flash to go off. all polaroid camera's are the same. you must have the film in the camera for it to work.

My daughter bought a Polaroid One Step camera at a yard sale, but the battery is dead. Is there a way to change the battery?


Polaroid OneStep cameras have the battery built-in to the film back. If you are using Polaroid 600 film, simply change the film cartridge.

Where is the battery located on the polaroid onestep express instant camera?


The battery is incorporated into the photo pack: you get a new battery when you change photo packs.

The problem is that all photo packs are now long out of date.(the last photo packs were manufactured nearly three years ago) and that batteries are likely to either be dead or to have insufficient power to finish a photo pack. Photo packs which have been kept refrigerated will have fresh photo chemistry, but cold kills batteries, so the only way that they're guaranteed to work is by modifying the camera to accept an external 6v power supply.

The expense of photo packs, their scarcity and the fact that most are now useless means that Polaroid Instant cameras are now worthless and virtually unusable. Last summer, a French company acquired the rights to remanufacture photo packs but has yet to announce a production date, but if they do go into production you can expect to pay at least £30 for just ten photos.

All photo formats eventually die: unfortunately Polaroid Instant has effectively done so along with some 35mm negative and transparency films.

How do we find battery component on old Polaroid camera...


Each film cartridge contains a new battery. Every time you replace the film, you get a new battery.

Now the bad news...
As of June 2008, Polaroid no longer makes film. The last of what was produced is expiring in 10/2009.

The hopeful news...
Polaroid may be licensing other companies to manufacture film again (after 2009) and another group is hard at work trying to produce a similar film for these cameras (http:\\www.the-impossible-project.com). But don't expect any of this to be available any time soon.

How old is the film in camera & when did you put in the film?

Polaroid's battery is built in with the film package.
If the package is old or been in the camera for a long time battery may be low or dead.

Try changing film out.

Good Luck! Hope this helped. Please rate.
MSG back if you need more help.
