Unless your camera is a 600SE, the batteries are in the film packs

Show me a video how to insert polaroid one 600 camera batteries

The battery is built into the photo pack, so when you load a fresh photo pack from The Impossible Project, you get a fresh battery. Photo packs are and always have been expensive, so this guarantees you don't end up with a flat battery halfway through a photo pack. Note that all original Polaroid manufactured photo packs are now so long out of date that they all have flat (or very nearly so) batteries; you should only use them in specially modified cameras using an external 4.5v dc power supply, but even then you may find that the photo chemicals are so old that they do not perform as expected (if at all).

A video showing you how to load the photo pack on any typical 600 series Polaroid camera is here if you need it., courtesy of Kaituba on YouTube.

I have an old Polaroid Impulse camera I want give to my grandson. I just want the flash to work. Where do I put the batteries? He's only 2, he doesn't need film! Debbie

The batteries for Polaroid 600 series cameras are located inside the film pack. Polaroid discontinued manufacture of their film in 2006, a company called The Impossible Project has began limited production of some of this type of film but it's selling for about $20/10 photos.

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.

95 Film Polaroid captiva SLR

You can find Polaroid 95 or 600 on Ebay. It is very expensive. A lot of 600 exposures will run $1500.00 or ther was 40 exposures for $200.00. Needless to say it isnt made anymore. The battery is actually in the film pack. No film, no working camera.

The battery comes in the same package of the film, altough there's no new film been mada AT ALL. If you find one buy as much as you can. There's no battery and no where to put it besides with the film.

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.
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!

Polaroid one step 600

The battery is included in the film pack. If you open the film door you will see the battery contacts in the lower side of the compartment. These line up with the battery holes (looks like foil in the holes) in the film pack. If you have an old film pack and no power the battery in the old pack may be dead.

Polaroid 600 instant battery change

The batteries that power the 600 format cameras are in the film pack, not in the camera. When you insert a new film pack, you're installing new batteries at the same time. hope this helped
