No Flash On Polaroid IMPULSE AF Instant Camera

After more than 20 years, the flash on my 1980's Polaroid "Impulse AF" Instant Camera won't work at all. I changed the film pack just in case the film ( which I understand contains the battery pack ) was defective, but with no luck...Can I get a replacement flash unit bulb & then repair it myself as I have good mechanical & electronic skills? How much is it & where can I obtain a flash unit? Otherwise the camera works OK, such as if taking pictures outside on a sunny day.
ThanX! PL

You gotta be kidding, you know they are stopping production of that film, right? Well, if you really want to try and repair, its probably the battery contacts in the film slot that are corroded, clean with a pencil eraser if you can reach them.

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.

My Polaroid Impulse camera will turn on, but it will not flash. Theres no film in it. It used to flash when I would press the button but I fiddled with it and now the flash doesnt work.


These cameras require a battery, which is integrated into the film pack, to function. Without this battery, the shutter, flash, and motor will not function. If there is an old pack in the camera some functions may work, but there is probably not enough power for the flash to function.

I was wondering if about the flash feature.


Hi Amber,

Yes, you would need film. The film pack contains the battery that powers the camera.

Polaroid impulse AF: where are the batteries??


The battery comes as part of the film pack, and is thrown away with the depleted cassette when used.

When looking at a film pack (out of the wrapper) it is the two silver contacts on the bottom.
