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.

Re: No Flash On Polaroid IMPULSE AF Instant Camera
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.

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.
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.
