The battery is built into the photo pack. original photo packs are no longer made, and old stock ones are now useless due to flat batteries. The power switch is the shutter button:press the shutter and the camera operates,there are no electronic displays, beeps, or similar functions.

There is a company which has recently started making photo packs again, but you only get 8 shots per pack, not the original 10 shots. Currently only monochrome (black and white) is available and the photos are unstable and prone to fade badly; colour film will soon be available as well. Check out The Impossible Project if you wish to order some.

I have a 600 polaroid camera that I would like to try and fix, I think I need to replacethe battery and I would your opinion on the matter and would be happy of you could give me any advice or possible...


Battery? Polaroid made several different models in the 600-series and none of them, as far as I know, use batteries. At least, no batteries other than the one included in each pack of film.

Show me a video how to insert polaroid one 600 camera batteries


The battery is built into the photo pack, so when you load a fresh photo pack from The Impossible Project, you get a fresh battery. Photo packs are and always have been expensive, so this guarantees you don't end up with a flat battery halfway through a photo pack. Note that all original Polaroid manufactured photo packs are now so long out of date that they all have flat (or very nearly so) batteries; you should only use them in specially modified cameras using an external 4.5v dc power supply, but even then you may find that the photo chemicals are so old that they do not perform as expected (if at all).

A video showing you how to load the photo pack on any typical 600 series Polaroid camera is here if you need it., courtesy of Kaituba on YouTube.

The battery is in the film cartridge if there is no power battery must be dead. Polaroid has stopped making instant fill a couple of years back. Each film catridge came with a non rechareable and non replaceable battery. You may be able to hunt down some old cartridges, but finding a working battery could be impossible.

Polaroid 600 Camera, won't take a picture.


How old is the film in it?

Polaroid film packs have a battery included (a polarpulse powercell, I think).

If its an old film, the battery can go flat and as far as I'm aware there's no way to get power in to it.

I would take the cartridge out, (effectively not use the last shot), try a new cartridge to see if its working properly, then send the old cartridge back to Polaroid, if you think its faulty.

The battery is included in the film pack. If you open the film door you will see the battery contacts in the lower side of the compartment. These line up with the battery holes (looks like foil in the holes) in the film pack. If you have an old film pack and no power the battery in the old pack may be dead.

Polaroid 600 instant battery change


The batteries that power the 600 format cameras are in the film pack, not in the camera. When you insert a new film pack, you're installing new batteries at the same time. hope this helped
