Is it b&w film? You said you were developing it yourself. if so, it could be a darkroom issue where you may not be keeping it light tight.

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.

Hello I have a vintage FTb camera and would like to know what year it is by the serial number- can you point me in the right direction?

Canon began manufacturing the FTb in 1971. You can see the page for this model at Canon's Camera Museum. Its replacement was the FTb-N, which came out in 1973. I don't know if you can find exactly when your camera was made, but it's probably safe to assume that it was between 1971 and 1973.

Where do you put batteries in a polariod 600 one step camera?

The batteries are part of the photo pack, when you change photo packs the battery changes at the same time.

Unfortunately almost all unused photo packs will now have flat batteries as they've been out of production for two and a half years now. Photo packs advertised as having been stored in a fridge will definitely have dead batteries as cold kills batteries. Photo packs kept out of a fridge may have some residual battery power, but not enough to last the full ten photos, and the chemicals may have gone stale resulting in poor quality photos.

The only solution is to modify the camera to take an external 6v power supply, such as a battery or a socket to accept a plug in DC adapter. It involves opening the camera (not easy: it's all clip together and was never designed to be dismantled) and then soldering wires to the camera's battery contacts and feeding them out through a hole drilled into the bottom of the camera. A flat Polaroid battery may have enough residual power for you to determine the contact polarity using a test meter. Get it wrong and the camera is dead, but Polaroid 600's are ten a penny at charity/thrift shops and free on FreeCycle/Freegle. Modifying the camera without dismantling it is possible, but very fiddly and you need to be careful not to let the hot soldering iron melt any of the plastic camera. It's like trying to perform keyhole surgery!

I've done this modification myself a few years ago, but last year gave the camera to an eager photography student.

I am looking for my polaroid camera film. 600 plus

It's been out of production now for about two years. Any you do find will be past the expiry date, so you'll likely either find that the battery pack has insufficient power to last an entire film pack or that the film itself is "off" and has poor colours and that the emulsion does not get squeezed by the film rollers into the photo corners.

Any film packs you do find are likely to be expensive AND a total gamble. A company was recently reported to have announced plans to put the film packs back into production next year, but prices are likely to be at least £30 for just one (ten photo) film pack and I've heard nothing more since then.

What I did with my old Polaroid camera was to fit an external 6v battery pack of my own design to the camera. I then kept an eye out for old stock film packs which have been kept refrigerated; this meant that the batteries in the film packs were always flat but the photo chemistry itself remained fresh and fully usable. I'd post links showing you how I modified the camera, but lost interest a few months ago and sold the camera and photo packs to an enthusiastic photography student. It is a straightforward job though which simply involves opening the camera, soldering one wire to each of the two battery terminals and then running the wires out through the base of the camera to any suitable 6v battery pack. I used a slim LiPo battery left over from a dead digital camera.

35 mm, Minolta X700

Is the re-wind button stuck in? If so it can be released by moving the take-up sprocket manually. If that did not work there is a broken take up gear. This was a common problem with the X700, a white plastic gear was used at the bottom of the take up spool mechanism that just was not strong enough especially when trying to get just one more shot from the roll of film. No new parts are available.

Canon FTB meter

The battery only powers the meter needle. The aperture match needle is controlled by the lever that is to the right of the mirror box. You can see it with the lens off while looking at the mount. It may be bent or damaged.
