Question about Polaroid One Instant Camera

1 Answer

Got a problem.

I received a Polaroid Onestep camera from a relative. The camera has film, almost a full pack. However, it doesn't seem to be working at all. The light and flash don't come on. Is there a battery somewhere that I need to change or something?

The battery is in the film pack. Try replacing the pack with a fresh one.

Either your camera is broken or those film packs you used have gone bad. I hope it's the later case which can be fixed by using a different film pack. Impossible Project makes new film packs for Polaroid 600 series so better use those than old expired Polaroid film packs.

Camera will not turn on when film is loaded


What is the film expiration date? This camera uses film with a battery built into the film pack, there are two metal contacts on the film pack, use a multimeter to check for current, the film has not been made for years now, battery may be dead.

When people say I need film or photo paper for the polaroid, is the film the same as the photo paper?


The polaroid One Step uses what is called pack film. It is layers of paper with chemicals sandwiched between, After exposure, the fild is pulled out between rollers that spread the chemicals over the photo paper. When seperating the photo from the paper covering, the chemicals are taken away with the discard.

My daughter bought a Polaroid One Step camera at a yard sale, but the battery is dead. Is there a way to change the battery?


Polaroid OneStep cameras have the battery built-in to the film back. If you are using Polaroid 600 film, simply change the film cartridge.

Where is the battery located on the polaroid onestep express instant camera?


The battery is incorporated into the photo pack: you get a new battery when you change photo packs.

The problem is that all photo packs are now long out of date.(the last photo packs were manufactured nearly three years ago) and that batteries are likely to either be dead or to have insufficient power to finish a photo pack. Photo packs which have been kept refrigerated will have fresh photo chemistry, but cold kills batteries, so the only way that they're guaranteed to work is by modifying the camera to accept an external 6v power supply.

The expense of photo packs, their scarcity and the fact that most are now useless means that Polaroid Instant cameras are now worthless and virtually unusable. Last summer, a French company acquired the rights to remanufacture photo packs but has yet to announce a production date, but if they do go into production you can expect to pay at least £30 for just ten photos.

All photo formats eventually die: unfortunately Polaroid Instant has effectively done so along with some 35mm negative and transparency films.

whitehall-bo,
give it a try, the batteries come with the film,so if it was stored high & dry it's probably good. polaroid pack should still be around. they stopped making polaroid camera's and film.

Batteries


The battery is inside the film pack, the camera does not have internal batteries.

when you replace the film pack you also replace the battery.

HI: I once owned a polaroid similar to your unit. the film comes with batteries to power the camera. Once the film is loaded the camera should be active. Good luck.zeffy57@aol.com
