Re: polaroid 600 instant battery change

The batteries that power the 600 format cameras are in the film pack, not in the camera. When you insert a new film pack, you're installing new batteries at the same time. hope this helped

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.

How to change the battery


These types of Poloroid cameras do not have batteries. The batteries are actually included in the film packs. Whenever you replace the film, you will replace the batteries.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Here is a picture of the battery in the film pack:

Where do you put batteries in a polariod 600 one step camera?

The batteries are part of the photo pack, when you change photo packs the battery changes at the same time.

Unfortunately almost all unused photo packs will now have flat batteries as they've been out of production for two and a half years now. Photo packs advertised as having been stored in a fridge will definitely have dead batteries as cold kills batteries. Photo packs kept out of a fridge may have some residual battery power, but not enough to last the full ten photos, and the chemicals may have gone stale resulting in poor quality photos.

The only solution is to modify the camera to take an external 6v power supply, such as a battery or a socket to accept a plug in DC adapter. It involves opening the camera (not easy: it's all clip together and was never designed to be dismantled) and then soldering wires to the camera's battery contacts and feeding them out through a hole drilled into the bottom of the camera. A flat Polaroid battery may have enough residual power for you to determine the contact polarity using a test meter. Get it wrong and the camera is dead, but Polaroid 600's are ten a penny at charity/thrift shops and free on FreeCycle/Freegle. Modifying the camera without dismantling it is possible, but very fiddly and you need to be careful not to let the hot soldering iron melt any of the plastic camera. It's like trying to perform keyhole surgery!

I've done this modification myself a few years ago, but last year gave the camera to an eager photography student.

95 Film Polaroid captiva SLR

You can find Polaroid 95 or 600 on Ebay. It is very expensive. A lot of 600 exposures will run $1500.00 or ther was 40 exposures for $200.00. Needless to say it isnt made anymore. The battery is actually in the film pack. No film, no working camera.

Camera operation


unfortunately i do not keep those dino's.
from memory:
some models will flash automatically,
some models will flash if the light is lifted up
some models have a switch and you should be able to find it if you look around carefully.

but my advice is, trash it as i suggested to other poster.
because you are spending good money after bad, and because

1). the DC prices are so cheap and you can get remarkable crispy sharp "instant" pictures than the "blurr" polariod's.
2). the polaroid films are so expensive and difficult to find, and usually they are not fresh anymore on the shelves, if you are lucky to find them.
3). the films only match certain models, not all
4). the battery built-in the film pack may go low (i have been working for a company which was its battery mftr).
