Question about Polaroid One600 Pro Instant Camera
Unfortunately all bets are off as far as Polaroid 600 photo packs are concerned as they're all so long out of date making their behaviour very unpredictable. Almost all of them now have flat batteries and cannot be used without a modified camera. Refrigerated photo packs will have the freshest chemicals and will respond fairly predictably when they get to room temperature but as cold kills batteries they all definitely need to be used on cameras modified to accept an external battery.
Your problem may therefore be due to old photo chemistry, but it can also be affected by the temperature you've been taking photos at and also if you have the camera lighten/darken control set to darken.
If you have the camera settings correct and are using the camera within the normal temperature operating range then you may wish to try the brand new photo packs which are available from The Impossible Project. Presently they're only available in monochrome and the material is far more temperature sensitive and far less fade resistant than the original material, but their website gives details as to how you can make the images last longer. Personally, I scan them and deliberately set the camera to overexpose the pictures: a good modern scanner can still pull an incredible amount of detail from overexposed images which is revealed by software like Photoshop.
