For future reference, consider going to the support area of the manufacturer's website, and looking over the downoads available for the particular product.
It took me 30 seconds to find this:
It's June now, undoubtedly too late to help your student.The fact that such a simple request went unanswered for so long makes me wonder about the usefulness of this site.

Try downloading it from:
After locating (on right column, below the sponsored links) the link for: "download the complete user guide", you'll see another screen that asks you for your "rating" of this camera, etc. Then click on the "Download the user guide" button, to get the pdf file that you can view (on your computer) and/or print.
try these coupla leads
Some of these sites have buttons and promises about the millionth visitor and etc.
Don't click ANY of those.
If any of these sites ask for money or personal details, try another.
If you are using the Automatic setting you should be getting fairly good pictures. Cameras are programed to make things easy in this setting and to make us happy.
If you are using the Priority settings (Shutter Priority/Aperture Priority) or Manual setting and getting bad pictures the best thing to do is either get a book on how the camera works or do a course. You have to be the Master of your Camera - even if it is a little 'happy snappy'. If you understand how a camera works you can apply it to all cameras. There is a relationship between Aperture and Shutter (that I call Zen) that gives you the correct exposure. i think a little study may help you....
Hi onestoppa972, I could try and explain it to you, but I think it would be better for you if you were to read it and have the pictures for reference. If you don't have the manual, you can download it here: http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/POLAROID/A500-_E Just follow the instructions and download it for free and it shows the various flash settings. If I can help you further, please let me know. Thanks.
I just got this camera for Christmas the only way that I know of how to fix it is to change the exposure manually. If the picture is to bright you need a negative exposure, if it is to dark you need a positive exposure. I have noticed that the auto exposure does not get the correct setting that you need for the lighting.
