Question about Polaroid SX-70 Film Camera

1 Answer

I am having what appears to be a classic problem with the sx 70 after reviewing some forums. The viewfinder goes black when i push the button then nothing for a long period of time. Once i push it again later it clunks and then ejects, but the photo is over exposed. Battery problem? roller problem? shutter problem?

How old is the battery? The shutter in all polaroid cameras ia battery controlled, so if the battery is old, the shutter will not function properly. If it's taking a while to make noise, rollers aren't likely an issue - roller issues are evident with spotte development. It may be an issue with the motor, shutter, or battery.

Nice HandmeDown - I checked Amazon for review guide and they had 1854 positive reviews.
The Button next to the black screen is the master button that switches from mode to mode .. like from the screen to the viewfinder (that's above the black screen) with 2 lights.
If this is your first digi camera then it's a big jump.The camera will need a Memory card (unless your nephew from Sydney left that as well) - the batteries will need a charger .
Try this link below (cut & paste) into your search engine and get a manual to read -- http://www.olympus.co.jp/en/support/imsg/digicamera/download/manual/zoom/man_c5000z_e.pdf

Shooting mode shows nothing.


Hello,

I just had this issue with my camera (my 15 year old son solved it for me ;-) ).

The viewfinder was active in "record" mode and the LCD was "active" because you could see a little back light but no image. The "playback" mode would let me review pictures in the LCD though so I know it is capable of showing information.

If you push the display key/button a couple of times you can see the picture move from the viewfinder to the LCD and have just a picture and or a picture and information.

So try setting the camera to "record" mode (lens comes out) and then push the "display button" which is on the back of the camera just to the right of the LCD on the lower right side several times and see if the LCD starts to work.

It could be that somehow the display button was pushed by mistake.
