Are you using neutral density filter with 600 film? if so, make sure the filter is not covering the top left open corner. the camera needs this free to eject the film. I had the same problem and solved it by cutting a little bit more and inserting the filter under the plastic. be careful not to cut too much that it will show on the actual photo!

Change the film because battery is part of the film assy.
Or clean those exit rollers.

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

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.

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.

The SX70 film pack contains the battery that allows the shutter to activate. Unfortunately you may have a difficult time finding it. Below are a couple links with some good SX70 info. The second one even has a link to the user guide in PDF format. I think the Q-light was on some of the One Step cameras. is that what you have?

Thanks for using Fixya. Good luck.

I did find a site that sells the $24.50 a pop!

You may find some additional info there too.

I have an old polaroid SX70 1000... have sx70 film loaded in there, brand new.. but nothing happens when I click the shutter button! Any ideas?

When you say "brand new" film, the battteries could easily be dead (or too low) if this is old, unused film. The camera's batteries are in the film pack....
I don't think true SX-70 film has been made for years. There is one Austrian company making film for it or people adapt newer film packs to it (read-up on internet).
First thing is to see if the contacts are clean and then to check the battery voltage in the film pack.
You could have battery contacts (in the camera) that need cleaning. Clean contacts with a pencil eraser, scotchbrite or very fine sandpaper.
Try looking online for voltage information. It might be helpful if you can check that.
