Question about Polaroid MiniPortrait M403R Instant Camera

What is this wheel beside the portrait selector for?

I just got my own 403 and wanted to know, if anyone can tell me what this wheel beside the portrait selector is for! 
If I choose to shoot 4 totally different pictures, do I always take one lens shot of at a time (then the second, third and fourth)?
Thanks for your help,

    Oh thank you very much! One more question: Do you know which films I need? It's just so hard to find out! I bought a Polaroid 59, but I think this is actually the wrong one...

Yes, the wheel aligns the area of the film to be exposed. To get four different images on one piece of film you would have to turn the wheel for each exposure.

When I shift manual shifter from 4 wheel drive back to 2 wheel drive, truck does not want to return to 2 wheel drive. Dash light goes off as expected. No service light comes on. I did put truck in reverse...

Just to confirm, you don't have an electrical 4WD selector; you have to move a shifter on the floor of our cab? If that's the case, I'd suspect that you have a linkage misalignment or malfunction that doesn't allow the 4WD selector to completely return to the 2WD position. Putting the truck into reverse and back to drive probably causes a jolt to the 4WD linkage which disengages the transfer case from the driveline. Check for slack or binding in the transfer case shift level linkage (clean and lube the linkage won't hurt).

Settings for taking pictures

What kind of picture do you want to take? What do you want that picture to say to the viewer?

There are a lot of different settings because there are a lot of different types of pictures. You don't want the same settings for a landscape picture as for a portrait picture. You probably wouldn't want the same settings for a portrait of a young girl as for a portrait of her grandfather.

If you're not comfortable choosing the settings yourself, set the camera to the appropriate scene mode. For taking pictures of people use the Portrait mode, for taking pictures of where you are on vacation use the Landscape mode, and so on.

If you want to learn more, your local library probably has some introductory photography books that tell you how the various settings such as aperture and shutter speed affect your pictures.

I cant get corect skin colour tone in auto white balance.i got some photographs and i see exif data of that photos in the exposure mode it showing manual exposure but at the scene cature type...

You can't. The Portrait mode, like all the other point&shoot modes, are automatic. The camera controls most functions, like exposure metering, auto-focus mode, and white-balance. If you want control over the camera, you'll have to use one of the PSAM modes.

Sony UVW 1800 error code 02-403 - tape is out, code won't go away

Error 02-403 is "tape slack in ff/rew". Although you were able to get the tape out, the threading ring may not have returned to the unthread position. With the power disconnected and the top of the deck off, look at the mechanism; on the right side, there is a small gray motor with a black wheel in front of it. By turning this wheel, you will be able to make the threading ring turn; turn it so the ring goes clockwise. When the ring has gone as far as it can, it will be in its unthread position, and the deck will probably work normally.

It could be the selenoid lock it self , which is located at he front of the Selector. You might need to remove the selector and test it if it is working properly. As it should be working for safety reasons
