Re: polaroid camera

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 Note that all original Polaroid manufactured photo packs are now so long out of date that they all have flat (or very nearly so) batteries; you should only use them in specially modified cameras using an external 4.5v dc power supply, but even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.

How do i fix my instant polaroid camera it just stoped working it is old do i need a new one

Those cameras run on integral film cassettes which contain the film and the battery. If you have a working cassette in your camera and it does not work then it is likely to be a battery problem. In which case you need a new cassette(long discontinued and are quite expensive). If your cassette is fine, then your camera is broken(less than 5% probability, these cameras don't brake on their own). In which case, there is nothing you can do but get a new one on eBay or Amazon. Like I said, these cameras don't just stop working, they are built to last for centuries(i still use Land cameras from 1950'). Do not throw your camera away, though, As it may still have a chance to be used again. The Impossible Project is attempting to make a new integral film cassette for 600 Model Polaroids which will be fresh and of similar quality to discontinued Polaroid 600 film. Should be any day now.

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.

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
