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.

My polaroid camera won't eject the film. Are the cameras broken or is the battery dead?


When you take a picture of darkness, are you using flash or uprating the film ?
More seriously, as the film is thirteen years out of date, I seriously doubt if it is still viable. The chemicals within the film pack will have deteriorated over time, and it is my guess that they may well have leaked into the film pack's internal mechanism, thus preventing the photos being ejected. Try again with fresh film.

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.

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.
