Change the photo pack. That's where the battery is located, you get a fresh battery with every pack.

Note that all remaining photo packs are now beyond their expiry dates as production ceased last year so many will have flat batteries or batteries with insufficient charge to last for the full ten shots. There's no fix for this: all that can be done is to rig up an external battery pack but there is no standard kit for this so it's very much a DIY project. the camera draws 4.5v and the standard battery was 6v when freshly manufactured.

Im looking to find othe current draw (amps) of the polaroid 600 batteries so that I can try to make an external battery pack.
in your reply to the question on http://www.fixya.com/support/t3426383-polaroid_one_600_instant_camera_change
you said that the camera draws 4.5 and that the battery is 6v. Do you mean 4.5 Amps? Where did you get this info, and how do I get more?

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

Simple. The battery is in the film cassette. Install film and the camera will come to life.

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

SOURCE: battery compartment

Hello,

You won't find a battery compartment. Poloroid instant camera have the battery as a part of the film pack. When you load the film...you get a new battery.

If you have not already found out, the film for these cameras can be pretty expensive.

Thanks for using Fixya.

How do I change the battery


Some of the later Polaroid cameras had the best design I've ever seen. The battery was in the film pack. You never had to worry about it.
The camera you're talking about may be digital though with no film. If so then try to get a manual for it on line from Polaroid.

Hope this helps.

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.

WHAT ARE THE PROBLEMS THAT THE POLAROID 600 INSTANT CAMERA HAVE? IF YOU DO NOT OWN A FILM HOW CAN YOU TELL IF YOU HAVE PURCHASED A GOOD WORKING CAMERA?


Usually, these cameras were rock solid in quality. However, without having film in it, it would be difficult to determine, through a test photo, if everything was correct on it.

The film has a battery in it that powers up the camera. So, purchasing one without film would be like purchasing a digital camera without batteries in it, already.

My daughter bought a Polaroid One Step camera at a yard sale, but the battery is dead. Is there a way to change the battery?


Polaroid OneStep cameras have the battery built-in to the film back. If you are using Polaroid 600 film, simply change the film cartridge.

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.
