Bad film or Camera.

March 29,2008 I bought a Polaroid pz1710 35 mm. camera with a roll of Kodak Ultra max 24 exp.For Our Granddaughters wedding and as we were taking the pictures the camera locked up and wouldn't do anything no winding no nothing, we don't know if any pictures were gotten or not, maybe a few at the beginning but when the wedding started here she came down the isle DEAD Camera. I was so Mad I wanted to through the thing everyone tried to help and the camera was opened so there may not be anything on it now, after the wedding was over we took out the film and put in a roll of Fuji film I had and I tried it and so far the camera is working jut fine but we are still taking pics.and so I have-nt gotten any pics. yet. But what do i do now take a chance and spend money to get a roll of film developed that may or have anything on them or just toss it. I don't know what to do. Thanks D.Legg (memalegg2@verizon.net)

Return the camera to the company and see if you can get a return or at least an even exchange. Get another roll of film and shoot casual stuff. Never test a camera, film or digital for the first time at any mission critical event like an anniversary or wedding. It can lead to potential disaster. Shoot the roll with the new camera if you got it exchanged and then have it developed at Walmart or wherever is cheapest. If it works, keep it. If not, don't. BTW, if you are ever going to have to shoot a wedding or anything ever again with a film point and shoot and don't want hassles, just get disposable cameras. They are designed to work out of the box with no problems. They are of higher quality then most people think for image qulity.

Polaroid used to make good instant cameras, but their 35mm film and digital stuff I wouldn't trust as much. It's not the real Polaroid which can makes only instant film gear. . It's another company using the Polaroid brand name to try and make otherwise generic stuff look better then it is. Their digital cameras have a poor reputation. I don't think their non instant film cameras are much better. Good luck.

They haven't made the roll film for these cool old cameras in a long time but there are conversion instructions online that let you adapt it to use available pack film. Check it out here:

Cannot find film for our Canon ELPH JR. Stores tell us they no longer carry this film and think it may not even be made anymore. We need 24 mm film..400 25 exp. DH IX240 DXIX ADVANCED PHOTO...


Your camera is an APS film camera. The cameras are obsolete now as APS was a short-lived format, but you can still get film for them quite easily.

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.

What powers the polaroid 600 camera????????????????????????


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.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

Sx-70 is Not Ejecting FIlm When Taking Picture


Possible you got a bad film cassette. In the original Polaroid camera packs they had batteries which actually powered the whole camera. The batteries may be dead or not have much charge in them. They are good for a couple years and as you indicate the expiration is up in another month... Good luck
