20 Most Recent Polaroid 600 Business Edition Instant Camera Questions & Answers

Look to the upper edge of the slot that the film is in. You should find a thin black lip that flaps. Pull on it to remove the empty film box.

Some of the later Polaroid cameras had the best design I've ever seen. The battery was in the film pack. You never had to worry about it.
The camera you're talking about may be digital though with no film. If so then try to get a manual for it on line from Polaroid.

Hope this helps.

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

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 Note that all original Polaroid manufactured photo packs are now so long out of date that they all have flat (or very nearly so) batteries; you should only use them in specially modified cameras using an external 4.5v dc power supply, but even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).

The batteries for Polaroid 600 series cameras are located inside the film pack. Polaroid discontinued manufacture of their film in 2006, a company called The Impossible Project has began limited production of some of this type of film but it's selling for about $20/10 photos.

The battery is an integral part of the film pack. When you put a fresh pack in, you get a fresh battery. A dead battery means the rest of the photo pack is unusable.

Original photo packs are no longer manufactured and all remaining unused Polaroid stock will be long out of date with flat batteries and stale chemicals. If kept stored cold, the chemicals may be fresh but the batteries will be flat as cold kills batteries even faster. Such photo packs cost a lot, are not guaranteed to work, and you only have the vendor's word that they have been cold stored. They're only usable in cameras modified to accept an external 4.5v dc power supply.

You can buy new and fresh photo packs from The Impossible Project, though. Just be aware that it's not the same as the original material and is really intended for artistic use. It's also not light stable and fades quickly, so scan any images you wish to keep, but is designed to be far more manipulable than the original material.

Click here for the company website where you can learn all about their product and how best to use it. You can buy directly or the site shows you where a few retailers are (not many worldwide).

Fresh guaranteed usable films are now ONLY from The Impossible Project.

On the only photo packs now available you get 8 shots per pack. The battery is built into the photo pack and is replaced every time you replace the photo pack, so you only get eight shots from it.

Original photo packs are all now long out of date and are mostly useless as the batteries have all gone so flat that they won't last an entire photo pack. The chemicals inside the photos are also usually stale and so produce odd results if you use the photo packs on a camera modified to take an external power supply.

New photo packs are now available from The Impossible Project.

Usually, these cameras were rock solid in quality. However, without having film in it, it would be difficult to determine, through a test photo, if everything was correct on it.

The film has a battery in it that powers up the camera. So, purchasing one without film would be like purchasing a digital camera without batteries in it, already.

The lens might be dirty - inside the camera as well as the outside and is not getting enough light.
