Question about Polaroid Photography
Unless you got your film from The Impossible Project, then there's no such thing any more as new Polaroid film. There is a lot of overpriced and unused old stock though which is all so long out of date that the batteries (built into the film pack) are all now effectively dead. Often the photo chemicals are stale as well, although if the film has been kept refrigerated (and you only have the sellers word for that) the chemicals may be fine but the battery will still be dead as cold kills batteries.
You have no way to save the current film pack, but to continue to use your camera in future you can either modify it to accept an external 6v d.c power supply (battery pack or mains adapter) or buy film from The Impossible Project.
I hope that my reply has given you suitable options for the continued use of your camera. Please take a moment to rate my answer.
