This is a firmware problem that has been happening to so many people's digital cameras. The company will repair it for $50

SOURCE: where do you install the battery on the polaroid

You don't. It's built into the photo packs which are no longer available. If you do find expired photo packs they will almost definitely have flat batteries (or very nearly so) by now even if the film itself has been kept fresh via refrigeration.

The camera needs to be converted to use an external power supply if you have ready access to expired photo packs.

Polaroid slr macro 5 Everything is lit. focus lights work. Fresh battery in film pack (impossible) had problems with battery before, but fixed. Black card does not come out. counter stays at...


OK it's worth asking which Impossible film you're using, as they're selling two kinds. One being old outdated and repackaged Polaroid made film, and one being their new production run film.

If you've purchased the old stock stuff there's a VERY good chance those old batteries in the pack are simply exhaused beyond use and the film pack is therefore useless. I'd personally contact Impossible for support.

Can the 35mm SLR Ricoh Kr-5 Super II camera still work with the batteries dead?


Straightforward answer: no. Everything needs power to work except for the self timer, but even that won't fire the shutter without battery power.

Can you still get film for the polaroid macro 5 camera please


In short, no. It's a long obsolete and specialised camera. Polaroid Spectra film will also work in your camera, but is also no longer made and is as common as fresh **** ****: if you find any it's likely to be useless now. Your camera is now a historical oddity and is of interest to collectors only, but as it can never be used the value isn't high.

Is there a battery in the camera, if there is where is it located polaroid 690 slr


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.

Nikon FE shutter speeds problem


I don't know, but it's worth a try. I took mine to the camera store, because my shutter wouldn't even work anymore, even with fresh batteries in it. He again tried new batteries, and turned the shutter speed knob from Automatic all the way over to "B" for Bulb, and back to the Auto. Guess What! I haven't used the camera in 3-5 years because I thought it was broke and going to need factory repair. Well, this tricked worked for me. I was so thrilled, because my daughter wanted some double exposures and special filters shots for her wedding. Also the weight of the camera I couldn't handle anymore with a health problem, so I went to digital, but would love a Nikon good digital.
Good Luck!

Pentax zx 50 35mm slr


Others here have suggested the problem lays with the plastic gear on the advancing motor beside the mirror.

This might cost $100 or so...?
