When this happened in my camera, it meant that the film winder gear was stripped. How old is this camera?

    The good thing about film cameras is that they are repairable. Digital cameras are usually either working or thrown away.

    The bad would be that repairs are sometimes not inexpensive. In my case, the bill was almost $200. The gear itself is cheap--it's the labor involved in disassembling the camera body just to replace it and put everything back together...

If your film was TOTALLY blank then it's been bleached due to a processing error. By totally blank, I mean that there are no frame numbers or other film markings on your blank film. Otherwise, you simply have an unexposed film.

First, operate the camera with the camera back open, hold the camera up to a bright light and operate the camera as you look into the back of the lens. If you see a brief bit of light coming through as you operate the shutter then the shutter is admitting light into the camera and so you should have got some kind of an image unless you failed to correctly load the film (very common).

Unfortunately, there's no way to tell unless you try another roll of film. Once the film is loaded, turn the rewind crank gently to take up slack film and take a few pictures; each time you advance the film the rewind crank should turn a little. If it doesn't then the film has not been correctly loaded as the film leader has not engaged onto the take-up spool. If so, open the camera and re-engage the film. If it clearly has engaged, then the take-up spool is failing to rotate when the film is advanced: try taking a few shots and winding on the film with the back open. If the film is not advancing then you have a faulty Lomo. This is extremely common as it is a plastic toy camera with atrocious build quality and materials and is the FishEye is only designed for paltry ten rolls of film lifespan.

A final check for film which has not advanced through the camera is if the rewind is extremely short when the film has finished.

E is flashing all the time when on?? can not open camera to remove film. Camera is locked--battery is new.


The flashing E means that the film has no more exposures left. When this occurs the film is usually automatically rewound into the cassette and the loading door can then be opened.

In your case, the film has not fully rewound and so the door remains locked. A fresh battery usually cures it but has not done so in your case. You can try using a pointed object such as a pen or pencil to press the manual rewind button on top of the camera (below the "select" and "enter" buttons on the top plate) but if that fails then you will need to break open the camera in total darkness to remove and rewind the film.

Breaking the camera seems drastic, but if the camera is broken then it's effectively irreparable anyway. APS cameras were a very badly engineered system and there are very few which are still working these days as the film transport mechanism was simply awful. There were various other problems with them as well, so many don't work for other reasons.

After you recover your film you can either replace the camera with another one (APS film is an almost dead format though) or switch to a conventional 35mm film camera which has better image quality as well due to the larger negatives. Either way, there is absolutely no need to actually pay for one; there are millions of them sitting unused in people's drawers and cupboards and you can either wait for one to be offered on your local FreeCycle/Freegle groups or request one. Note that a rule of these groups is that your first posting MUST be to make an offer, but you're free to respond to offers for items offered by other members.

You might want to consult this online resource from Kodak regarding your camera for further information about it.

Screen is black and film won't load


If it's a 35mm film camera and you see nothing through the viewfinder, then as long as the lens cap has been removed, your camera has a locked up mirror.

You don't give any clues which exact model you have, but if it's one of the later electronic autofocus models with automatic film advance then the additional detail that the film isn't loading confirms that your camera simply has no power. Replace the batteries and all should be well.

If your camera does not have automatic film advance then you still almost certainly have flat batteries and just need to learn how to correctly load and wind the film.

Film isnt ejecting


Easy. The same problem faced by almost all Polaroid 600 users these days: the photo pack has a flat battery.

All photo packs are at least two and a half years old now, and all are out of date. The in-built battery will usually be a dead as a dodo or only have barely enough power to eject the protective cover sheet and maybe take a few photos. Photo packs advertised as "refrigerated" will ALWAYS have a flat battery (cold kills batteries) others may occasionally have a battery which will last all ten shots, but the photo chemistry will usually be stale producing harsh contrast, poor colours and possibly too thick for the ejection rollers to squeeze the bag of developer right across the photo.

There is no cure for this, other than to modify the camera to take an external 6v battery or a plug-in adapter, but it's not easy as the camera was never designed to be taken apart. If you search my other answers you'll see that I've given instructions on how to do this many times before.

Sorry, but it's an obsolete camera which is no longer supported and for which the supply of new photo packs has ceased.

I hope that you have still found my reply to be of use and ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer.

Lock broke an door for film


Look on Ebay for another one. Either use the new one for parts(unless it works fine) or use it as your main camera and keep the parts one for spares.
This might be a good time to switch to 35mm.

How do u turn the polaroid 600 0n or off?


on all the time- battery is in the film pack, and when you press the shutter it gets all the power from the film pack battery. If the camera doesn't work, it's possible that the battery is dead, even if you have film left. You'll need to try and get the film pack replaced, if the expiration date has not passed.If it has passed your just out of luck.  Since Polaroid made their last run of film forever this last summer,  this camera is probably going to be obsolete soon, so get your film  while you can.

Where can I buy a film pack and paper??????????????????????


Polaroid manufactured their last run of film for that camera this summer,so go on the WEB and search Polaroid 600 film (or ask a a local camera store). If you really like this camera, you might buy some extra, nut you already know about the battery, so don't buy more than you will use before the expiration date. When the film is gone, the camera will be useless, unless someone like Fuji,who makes the film for the camera in Japan, decides to keep making it.
