When this happened in my camera, it meant that the film winder gear was stripped. How old is this camera?

Why won't photo button won't do anything

Your camera will work with AA batteries.
Always be sure the batteries are charged.
Insert the batteries correct plus to plus and minus to minus. Only one battery the wrong way around and the camera won't work.
Check contacts of the batteries and in the battery compartment of your camera. Dirty or oxidised contacts can be cleaned with a dry cloth. Never use sharp tools to clean contacts or anything in or on your camera.
Always charge the batteries before using it for the first time, or if you have not used it for a long period. 3 months is a very long period.
Also check if the battery door is closed correct. Most cameras do have a switch connected to the battery door. If the switch does not work correct, it could be you can't switch on your camera.
Do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In most cases, alkaline batteries have a shorter service life than NiMH. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in your camera. They can't deliver enough power and can start leaking, causing damage to your camera.

My husband is looking fim for the 420 model of his Polaroid any suggestions!

The only film available for these model's now is made by Fujifilm, and are the FP-100C (color 100 speed which may require slight adjustment in exposure since the camera is set up for a 75 speed film), FP-100B (B&W, same situation as above), and FP-3000B which is also B&W but won't require adjustment since the cameras had a 3000 setting. The cheapest/most reliable source is B&H Photo in New York (, prices range from $7.50-9.75, depending on type of film, plus about $4 shipping, so it'd be most economical to order more than one pack at a time if you plan to use more than 10 shots in a month or two. If you're lucky enough to have a fairly large specialty photo store (not Walmart/Target/etc.) in your area, they may have it. Be very sure to order, or tell them you need the 3.25x4.5" version, as they also sell a 4x5" version which won't fit your camera.

The Fuji film is nicer than the old Polaroid film, as it does have better color production and dries faster, and the chemical used is less dangerous. The B&W film also does not require coating.

If he hasn't used the camera in a while, it may be needing a battery too, which is most likely a PX-19. If it's got 2 cables in the battery compartment that look like they have 9v battery plugs on them, that's it. The battery is a 4.5v that looks similar to a AA, but can be hard to find. They can be ordered thru Radio Shack, Batteries Plus sometimes stocks them, and specialty battery shops sometimes stock them or can get them in (sometimes without paying shipping which costs as much as the battery). I paid $15 for mine at Batteries Plus.

I just bought new Lomo Fisheye2 camera. I read the instruction first before i will do anything to my camera. Once i read everything, i just follow the instruction step by step. Putting AA battery and...

If your film was TOTALLY blank then it's been bleached due to a processing error. By totally blank, I mean that there are no frame numbers or other film markings on your blank film. Otherwise, you simply have an unexposed film.

First, operate the camera with the camera back open, hold the camera up to a bright light and operate the camera as you look into the back of the lens. If you see a brief bit of light coming through as you operate the shutter then the shutter is admitting light into the camera and so you should have got some kind of an image unless you failed to correctly load the film (very common).

Unfortunately, there's no way to tell unless you try another roll of film. Once the film is loaded, turn the rewind crank gently to take up slack film and take a few pictures; each time you advance the film the rewind crank should turn a little. If it doesn't then the film has not been correctly loaded as the film leader has not engaged onto the take-up spool. If so, open the camera and re-engage the film. If it clearly has engaged, then the take-up spool is failing to rotate when the film is advanced: try taking a few shots and winding on the film with the back open. If the film is not advancing then you have a faulty Lomo. This is extremely common as it is a plastic toy camera with atrocious build quality and materials and is the FishEye is only designed for paltry ten rolls of film lifespan.

A final check for film which has not advanced through the camera is if the rewind is extremely short when the film has finished.

Does the black and white Polaroid film come with a battery also?I will need flash for low light party

All Polaroid films come with a built in battery, but as they're all out of date now it's difficult to find a photo pack with anything other than a flat (or nearly flat) battery. If you can find one with a good battery then the film itself has normally degraded and produces unpredictable results. On balance, it's usually best to buy film packs which have been stored in a cool place or even refrigerated although this means the battery will always be effectively dead. Power is then supplied by modifying the camera (see below).

Flash depends upon which Polaroid camera model you have. Some had a built-in flash in the folding lens cover and definitely need a good battery to work. Unfortunately you'll find that any photo packs capable of powering the flash will certainly become exhausted before all ten photos have been taken. Other models used a Flip Flash bar: a strip of ten flash bulbs which could only be used once. They only need a tiny trigger voltage as the flash light is produced by igniting an encased magnesium filament. Unused Flip Flashes are scarce items as they have been out of production for a very long time, but they can be found by simply asking on your local FreeCycle/Freegle group as folks often have them lurking at the back of drawers and cupboards.

The issue regarding flat batteries can be addressed by modifying the camera to take an external 6v battery: basically you need to open the camera up and solder a couple of wires to the battery contacts inside the camera. These can then be fed through a hole drilled in the casing (which is then sealed and made light-proof) to a suitable battery holder. Some folks use four AA or AAA batteries, I used an old Lithium Polymer battery from a dead mobile phone as it's smaller, lighter and rechargeable.

Hope you've found this useful, if so please remember to rate my answer.

Where can I buy a film pack and paper??????????????????????

Polaroid manufactured their last run of film for that camera this summer,so go on the WEB and search Polaroid 600 film (or ask a a local camera store). If you really like this camera, you might buy some extra, nut you already know about the battery, so don't buy more than you will use before the expiration date. When the film is gone, the camera will be useless, unless someone like Fuji,who makes the film for the camera in Japan, decides to keep making it.

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
