The battery is in the film pack. The one600 doesn't use any other type of battery except what comes with the film. Either the film is really old and the battery died or it's defective. If the film is relatively new and you haven't been able shoot all 10 shots, then you might call the manufacturer for a replacement. Otherwise, I'd buy a new film pack.

In short, you can't. Not unless you change the photo pack as well, but it's no longer as simple as that.
You can no longer solve
the problem with a new photo pack as they're all long out of date
and out of production and so most remaining ones also have flat
batteries. Those which aren't totally dead typically die completely
after ejecting the protective cover sheet.
The only fix is to
modify the camera to accept an external 6v power supply, but it's not
that easy as the camera casing clips together and was never designed to
come apart and so often the casing breaks during the modification
attempt. But given that most charity/thrift shops either have a back room full
of unsold (unsellable) Polaroid cameras and that they're easily obtained
via FreeCycle and Freegle it's not really an issue if it takes five or
six attempts to end up with one modified camera.
The supplies of
photo packs are a different issue though: they're very expensive (and always were, but are now ridiculously so), no longer usually work work (except as detailed above) and are increasingly difficult
to obtain as supplies continue to dry up. In practical terms, it's simply no longer worth it as the Polaroid 600 Instant Photo system is a dead photographic format.
Change the photo pack. That's where the battery is located, you get a fresh battery with every pack.
Note that all remaining photo packs are now beyond their expiry dates as production ceased last year so many will have flat batteries or batteries with insufficient charge to last for the full ten shots. There's no fix for this: all that can be done is to rig up an external battery pack but there is no standard kit for this so it's very much a DIY project. the camera draws 4.5v and the standard battery was 6v when freshly manufactured.
The battery for the Poloarid is in the film pack.
Each film pack has enough battery power to shoot the film in the pack.
The problem is that if the pack sits around for too long the battery will die making the film pack useless.
Maybe battery is working but barely. Try using another film pack. Make sure usin a new film pack something like Impossible Project 600 Film packs.
Anyway unless you are a collector or it has some sentimental value I would move to one of these new Instant Cameras . These cameras work better and new Polaroid film and Instax film are way better. Twice or more cheaper too.
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.
