Question about Polaroid Photography
I am able to load in film as per ususal. But once the cartridge is in I cannot see through the view finder. I can press the shutter (red button) to take a photo, but it is not ''connecting''...nothing happens. If I remove the film I am able to see through the view finder again. Does this sound like a broken shutter? If so, how can I repair the camera? It is a rare 1970's teal and gray model. I really love it and don't want to let it go.

Remove bottom cover and locate the 6v 220 microF capacitor and replace . The capacitors that go into these models start leaking after 10 years.

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
