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You can no longer solve the problem with a new photo pack as they're all long out of date and out of production and so most remaining ones also have flat batteries.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.

Flash is off during video mode


Remember, the A470 is primarily a still camera. The flash is designed to put out a very intense and very brief flash of light for still pictures. It is not intended for video. If you need additional light for video, you'll need a light designed for that. Such a light will consume batteries very quickly, if it isn't plugged in.

Can't get flash to work


• If you are taking pictures in low light (dim light) and the flash is required, the flash will operate

automatically. A lightning bolt appears on the LCD screen and blinks until the flash is ready.

• While holding the camera steady, press the shutter button to take a picture.

Hint: The flash works best when your picture subject is about 4 ft. - 7.5 ft. (1.22 m - 2.23 m)

from the camera.

• When the batteries are getting weak, the flash will not fully charge and the no flash lightning

bolt appears on the LCD screen. It's time for an adult to change the "AA" (LR6) batteries,


Hope this works!!!

Flash setting doesn't work


Does your camera gave a small battery in place somewhere that is used to maintain the date and time settings? (it is generally a watch battery type small flat silver disk.) You should not have to reset time and date after each battery change.

Many digital cameras eat up batteries quickly, especially when using the flash alot., that is why it is important to use good quality rechargeables whenever possible.

Red light continually flashes, and won't take picture


I have seen this problem on the ex-s880 casio camera a few times sometimes you can go into the setup menu and reset the camera to default and that some times fixes it. it that does not work I have had to replace the flash circuit on the camera because the large compasitor is out and needs tobe replaces most likely this is your problem because of the flashing LED. Hope this helps its a great camera also you might want to check with casio because this should be covered under warrenty. If the camera was not dropped.

Red light continually flashes, and won't take picture


Set the camera to anything except no flash. Turn it off. Take out the battery. Wait 5-10 seconds. Put the battery back in. The flash should now work until you turn the camera off again (and then you must remove/replace the battery to get the flash working again).

The flash requires some kind of "master reset" to work. Haven't found a permanent solution to this.

Autofocus not working


When the camera is OUT OF FOCUS, these are the steps that you could try:

1 Power Reset
- Turn off camera
- Remove batteries for a minute
- Reload batteries
- Turn on camera

2 Distance
- When the distance between the camera and the subject is too close,
the strength of the light can cause the picture to overexposed and
be blurred. On the contrary, if the distance is too far,
the beam is too weak to shed enough light on the subject.
Allow yourself enough space between you and your subject.

3 Shutter
- If you press the shutter before the flash is fully charged,
the flash will not be able to emit enough light and therefore
the image can be blurred.

4 Surrounding Light
- Use the fill-in flash mode to create a balanced shot when
the surrounding light is very bright.

5 Backlight
- Use the backlight control feature when the background
is brighter than the subject.

6 Cleaning
- Clean the lenses with a smooth piece of cloth.

7 ASR (Advanced Shake Reduction)
- Put in ASR mode to prevent any blur

8 Master Reset
- Press on MENU button
- Press on the right button until you see SETUP
- Scroll down until you see RESET
- Press the right button to pick up on YES or NO
- Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved
- Turn off camera for a few seconds for changes to be saved

* If it still does not work, you need to send the camera for repair.
Just contact the Manufacturer so they could tell you how to send camera safely.
