When I was inserting a brand new film pack in the camera, the protective cardboard cover didn't slide out when I closed the bottom lid. Can you help?

Check to see if the film is still good because if it is not the built in battery might have died. Check to make sure that the film was going in the correct way and that nothing was blockin the film pack from going in.

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More seriously, as the film is thirteen years out of date, I seriously doubt if it is still viable.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

Does it take batteries


The Spectra AF camera film packs contain the 6V battery that runs the camera. The manual for the Spectra camera is available here: store.polaroid.com/media/document/spectra_af_ug.pdf . See page 21 (page 29 of the PDF). Unfortunately, considering how long these cameras have been available, the film packs may be hard to find.

I hope this helps.

(even new cameras with rechargeable batteries sometimes need a replacement battery pack. The battery can't recharge forever.)

What kind of camera, and film, did you buy? Polaroid discontinued production of film in 2006, and the only remaining film is old stock, or available from the impossible project. There are other types of film available, but not compatable with all types of polaroid cameras. This information will have a HUGE impact on the solution to your problem.

1) Type of camera (not just Polaroid, they made HUNDREDS of models)
2) Type/Size/Brand of film

Poloroid spectra 2........Does it have a battery, and how do you get into it???


The battery is included in the film pack. All original film packs now have flat batteries, especially if cold stored. Refrigerated packs with flat batteries can be used if you convert the camera to accept an external 4.5v dc stabilised power supply such as an external battery pack.

New film packs are available from The Impossible Project, but they are not the same material as the original Polaroid ones. The website tells you about the differences in results and product behaviour.

How do i load the film


There's a sliding catch on the left side of the camera (as viewed from the front) at the forward edge. Slide it and the lower front panel drops down to reveal the loading slot. Insert the photo pack (you may need to remove an old empty photo pack first).

If the new photo pack is an original Polaroid one, then because they are all so old and far out of date then you may find that the battery is totally dead or has just enough power to eject the cover slide and perhaps one photo. If that is the case either convert your camera to accept an external 6v dc power supply before using the expensive photo pack or buy a freshly manufactured compatible pack from The Impossible Project.

I have the polaroid spectra system that my grandfather had, it still has film in it but doesn't work...is there a battery somewhere? I haven't been able to find it....


The battery for many polaroid cameras is incorporated into the film pack. If the film has been in the camera a long time, the battery may have run down. There isn't any way to replace it. You have to fit a new film with battery, and these films can be hard to find fresh now.

Help Pls... i have a polaroid spectra 1200i i cant find where to load the batteries ?? there is already film inside from the previous owner. but no idea where the batteries go.


Late model Polaroid film cameras used a thin lithium battery incorporated into the film pack. There were no separate batteries. If your camera won't function, perhaps the battery in the film pack has gone bad during long storage, in which case you will need to replace the film pack and won't be able to use the remaining film.

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
