Polaroid 690 SLR-The switch between manual focus and auto focus, does not appear to operate normally. Maybe I do not know how to use it, however I cannot manual focus. Are you familiar with this camera and...

Not sure if this will help, but according to the manual, to use manual focus, push the button down until the red portion is visible, and turn the manual focus control dial until the image appears in focus in the viewfinder. Then, take the photo as normal. To return to autofocus, just return the switch to its normal position.

I have an olympus om-1 and the viewfinder is black. how can i fix this? I had it in my camera bag safely and today i took it out and loaded it and the viewfinder is black.

Make sure the mirror lockup switch is not activated. Take lens off camera, look inside camera through lens mount and make sure mirror is in down position. When the morror is up, it blocks everything in viewfinder.

All power for the electronic flash, autofocusing system and advanced electronics is derived from the wafer-thin battery in each film pack. I hope this helps and good luck. Please vote accordingly and leave a comment.

The viewfinder of my minolta x700 is always black

Check if the mirror is locked or stuck. If the viewfinder is dark, it means there is something wrong with the mirror.
