Question about Polaroid One600 Pro Instant Camera

1 Answer

Polaroid One 600 no longer taking pictures, mechanical problem

It was working and then the next day it stopped. The lights and display screen are still on, I still have 6 pictures left to take, and the film isn't stuck either as I took the film pack out and inserted it back in and the first photo spat out like it should. At first I thought it might be the shutter button not working, but I took the hood off and checked and it's working perfectly fine, something else isn't functioning properly. Any ideas? Thanks for the help!

SOURCE: Stopped taking pictures

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.

SOURCE: Sx-70 is Not Ejecting FIlm When Taking Picture

Possible you got a bad film cassette. In the original Polaroid camera packs they had batteries which actually powered the whole camera. The batteries may be dead or not have much charge in them. They are good for a couple years and as you indicate the expiration is up in another month... Good luck

SOURCE: Could a the trigger problem make it so that it cant take a photo?

Yes, The trigger closes a switch. If it didn't return the switch may still be closed, preventing further use.

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More seriously, as the film is thirteen years out of date, I seriously doubt if it is still viable.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.

We have sound but screen is black. can this be fixed?


If when you turn the TV on you see a brighter picture then your flat panel back light is working but the TV display mechanism is not. Most of the time this is not repairable by an end user though a specialty electronics shop may be able to repair it. If when you turn the TV on there is no noticeable brightening on the screen it could be that your TV is working but the back light has died. The back light on most TVs can be replaced but this is a fairly complex process involving taking the TV apart and swapping out the components.

600 film comes out with verticle streaks and no picture


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's likely your issue is that the chemistry in the film and pack is simply no longer useful.

There is a light flashing and i cant take a picture


In short, you can't. Not unless you change the photo pack as well, but it's no longer as simple as that.

You can no longer solve the problem with a new photo pack as they're all long out of date and out of production and so most remaining ones also have flat batteries. Those which aren't totally dead typically die completely after ejecting the protective cover sheet.

The only fix is to modify the camera to accept an external 6v power supply, but it's not that easy as the camera casing clips together and was never designed to come apart and so often the casing breaks during the modification attempt. But given that most charity/thrift shops either have a back room full of unsold (unsellable) Polaroid cameras and that they're easily obtained via FreeCycle and Freegle it's not really an issue if it takes five or six attempts to end up with one modified camera.

The supplies of photo packs are a different issue though: they're very expensive (and always were, but are now ridiculously so), no longer usually work work (except as detailed above) and are increasingly difficult to obtain as supplies continue to dry up. In practical terms, it's simply no longer worth it as the Polaroid 600 Instant Photo system is a dead photographic format.

History of polaroid 600 quality.


It's probably more an issue of how/where that one image was taken in relation to the others than it is an issue of the physical condition of that one photo.

Different lighting conditions can fool the in-camera light meter and cause a photo that is either too light or too dark, and this is probably that happened. Or, sometimes someone doesn't notice and their hand/finger is over the electric eye. Generally if an image is "bad", it'll be dark or non-existant on Polaroid cameras, because of the process they use.

Polaroid 600 Camera, won't take a picture.


How old is the film in it?

Polaroid film packs have a battery included (a polarpulse powercell, I think).

If its an old film, the battery can go flat and as far as I'm aware there's no way to get power in to it.

I would take the cartridge out, (effectively not use the last shot), try a new cartridge to see if its working properly, then send the old cartridge back to Polaroid, if you think its faulty.

I Have a polaroid 600 camera and whenever i take pictures WITHOUT the flash the picture comes out distorted, is there a way to solve this?

It sounds like either your rollers are dirty or damaged, or your film/chempak is simply beyond it's useable life.

POLAROID SOS


The battery in the film pack may be dead, or the camera is broken. Take the film pack out and replace it. If the camera does not reset then the camera is gone.
