I typed in Polaroid ProCam into google and the first result that popped up is a manual:

Instructions on changing the date is on page 15.
Hope this helps : )

My polaroid camera won't eject the film. Are the cameras broken or is the battery dead?


When you take a picture of darkness, are you using flash or uprating the film ?
More seriously, as the film is thirteen years out of date, I seriously doubt if it is still viable. The chemicals within the film pack will have deteriorated over time, and it is my guess that they may well have leaked into the film pack's internal mechanism, thus preventing the photos being ejected. Try again with fresh film.

Where can i buy a polaroid film in the philippines?


Polaroid has not manufactured film for 600 cameras in about 5 years now. The only current source is The Impossible Project, which gives 8 shots per pack, black and white images only, and they tend to fade rather quickly. You can find and order online by searching the name. The Polaroid versions available are no longer really usable because the batteries are drained, film has expired and chempaks have oxidized.

It'd be highly unlikely to get in-date Polaroid film, since the last they made was in 2006, expiring in 2009. It's likely you got some that's been repackaged by an unreputable dealer and it's got an expired battery pack. Or, you've gotten something completely uncompatable with a 600 camera. If your film says anything except 600 on the pack, it's not the same thing - ie 669, 667, 668, etc.

Which film is best for the Polaroid One Step 600 Film Camera

Again, the only CURRENT, in-date, usable film for Polaroid 600 is made by TIP, available thru their website. There are some scumbags out there online selling old Polaroid film they've re-dated and selling it as current and fresh film - it is not. The newest Polaroid brand film expired in 2009. Buyer beware.

I got a Polaroid OneStep 600 Flash Close-Up, it looks like it's never been used. How do I know what film it will take, and where can I buy it?


Polaroid Stopped making the film about 2 years ago. You can still find some film out of New York and Amazon, some reviews are good, some are saying the filme is not good or out of date. Find a reputable dealer. New polaoid or a new "polaroid" product may be coming out sometime soon, see http://www.the-impossible-project.com/

I have a polaroid film 600 camera where can I get a battery for it, and how do I change it's battery?


The battery comes built in to the photo pack. All photo packs are now past their use by dates though as they have been out of production for more than a year, so any which you do find may have weak or flat batteries.

Photo packs which have been kept refrigerated will have better colour production and more accurate contrast but are far more likely to have flat batteries. Photo packs stored at around a constant twenty degrees Celsius are more likely to have a good battery, but there is a greater chance of poor photo colours & contrast and there is a greater chance that the photo ejection rollers will fail to squeeze the developing chemicals evenly across the photo.

The camera can be modified to take an external film pack, but it's a DIY job using whatever you have to hand; unfortunately I can't recall what the correct voltage is but if you ask another question on FixYa then someone will know.

Camera wont eject photo when picture is taken.


This is due to an old photo pack as they're all past the use by date now: the battery built in to it had just enough power to eject the protection sheet and take a photo, but then went flat. There's nothing you can do to remedy this unless you fit an external battery pack. There are no kits to do this with, you have to rig something up on a DIY basis but it is fairly simple with a few basic tools and a little ingenuity. The original batteries were 6v and the camera works at 4.5v; the higher voltage gives a bit of leeway as the battery slowly discharges whilst the film pack is stored and unused.

Where is the battery for 600 camera located?


On a Polaroid 600 you won't find one: the 6v battery is built into the photo pack, so every time you load a photo pack you get a new battery.

Beware of old stock photo packs though unless they're *very* cheap; there's a significant risk that they won't be usable due to a dead battery.

Poloroid 600 wont turn on


This is a Polaroid 600, sometimes called the 'land camera' in an older guise, and this is the film and battery.
http://www.epinions.com/review/Polaroid_600_Instant_Film_10_Photos_074100239660/content_353231081092
See, the battery in this camera comes in the film package. It is on the bottom of it, when you take out the cartridge when you have taken all 10 pictures (it only holds 10), you will see a paper and silver bag left at the bottom. There's your battery.
So if it really is a polaroid 600, when you replace the film, you replace the battery. If the battery quits before you used all 10 prints, there's nothing you can do but replace both of them and waste the rest of the shots.
I have worked with photos for years, and never seen a cartridge with more than 10 prints in it, for that camera. Not saying it's not possible, but I think you'll find there's only 10.
Good luck!
