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More seriously, as the film is thirteen years out of date, I seriously doubt if it is still viable.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.

Fujifilm instax mini 7s pictures coming out white


I have the same problem as you. Pictures are in black and photo cartridges already wasted 3. Today I opened my camera and not a spring tea that is attached to the lever capture modes (sunny, noblado etc) was detached. Because I remember when the camera is turned on (pulling the lens) capture modes to move too. So every time you take a photo you must manually set the capture mode, and it stopped working. I hope it is resolved by attaching the spring. You already solved?

The film comes out all blank when I take a picture on my Fujifilm instax 210. What do I do?


Hi,
try take 10 shot without any films insert to the camera.
If there is flash mean camera is working in goods condition.
It will appear black because someone had open the film cover before, therefore , it detect it's a new film box, and eject the first film cover.
film will appear black.

Pictures all white


i'm assumming the film was in the camera?If so the film was exposed to the air and if expired this will cause white pics.If film was in sealed package than it still is film related, you bought new batteries so again persumming film is very old.Sounds like shutters are opening if white,black photo's are shutter problems. hope i helped!

Hi there, i recently purchased a polaroid 600 camera from ebay and some 600 film. However, when I try to shoot, I just get blank pictures coming out (completely brown - alomst negative-type look). I'm not...


More than likely, the camera is ok. It sounds like the film is either expired, or the previous owner did not store the film properly, therefore it cannot be exposed properly. If you bought it off of ebay, you do not know how the previous owner took care of the film. To narrow this problem down, I would get new film and try it again, hopefully this will work, but if not, it will further your troubleshooting efforts.

I have a new polaroid camera and new film however when I have loaded the film, the number of shots is not shown and the top piece of paper does not come out. The film is in date as it was just delivered to...


Polaroid has not manufactured film for 600 cameras in about 5 years now. The only current source is The Impossible Project, which gives 8 shots per pack, black and white images only, and they tend to fade rather quickly. You can find and order online by searching the name. The Polaroid versions available are no longer really usable because the batteries are drained, film has expired and chempaks have oxidized.

It'd be highly unlikely to get in-date Polaroid film, since the last they made was in 2006, expiring in 2009. It's likely you got some that's been repackaged by an unreputable dealer and it's got an expired battery pack. Or, you've gotten something completely uncompatable with a 600 camera. If your film says anything except 600 on the pack, it's not the same thing - ie 669, 667, 668, etc.

Which film is best for the Polaroid One Step 600 Film Camera


Polaroid has not manufactured film for 600 cameras in about 5 years now. The only current source is The Impossible Project, which gives 8 shots per pack, black and white images only, and they tend to fade rather quickly. You can find and order online by searching the name. The Polaroid versions available are no longer really usable because the batteries are drained, film has expired and chempaks have oxidized.

Again, the only CURRENT, in-date, usable film for Polaroid 600 is made by TIP, available thru their website. There are some scumbags out there online selling old Polaroid film they've re-dated and selling it as current and fresh film - it is not. The newest Polaroid brand film expired in 2009. Buyer beware.

I Have a polaroid 600 camera and whenever i take pictures WITHOUT the flash the picture comes out distorted, is there a way to solve this?

It sounds like either your rollers are dirty or damaged, or your film/chempak is simply beyond it's useable life.
