Question about Polaroid One600 Ultra Instant Camera
After 13 shots, my polaroid camera stopped working. Suddenly, the light won't stop blinking once turned on, the screen displays 10 even after 3 exposures. We thought the film's jammed so we pulled out the film to check it. everything seems normal except for the blinking of the light and display. So what's wrong with the unit?
Do you have fresh batteries in the camera. Batteries may be needed to set the exposure and trip the shutter. If the batteries are good, the back when closed may be jamming the film between the cassette and the body. Also make sure your fingers is not restricting the rewind knob on the left side of the camera.

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

The battery in the film pack may be dead, or the camera is broken. Take the film pack out and replace it. If the camera does not reset then the camera is gone.

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.

I fixed this a couple of ways with my own LCA.
One is to stick a piece of paper in between the 2 parts of the tape-up spool (the internal and external parts) to make them a tighter fit.
Also, I often fold the leader of the film back (very close to it's end), and push it inbetween the 2 parts of the take up spool, making sure one sprocket is securely placed into the small tooth/hook on the spool. So, the film is folded around the tooth and towards the back, on the inside of the spool.
