Well, I'm not sure exactly what I did, but the problem is solved. I opened the case to see if I could get the film out that way, but it would have entailed totally disassembling the camera, and I didn't want to do that. I put the case back on and tried the manual rewind button, which wouldn't work before. It rewound the film this time, and I was able to eject the cartridge. So I don't know exactly what the problem was or what I did that fixed it, but the camera is working properly now!

Align film leader at mark, then close the camera back for prewind loading. Film rewinds as each shot is exposed. Built-in motor for automatic winding/rewinding. Film advance: Automatic. Single-frame and continuous (1 fps). Automatically rewinds film leader into cartridge when designated number of frames have been exposed (midroll rewind available).
Hi, once you insert the new pack of film, first shot is without flash as it's eject the film cover which is a useless film cover that cover the film protect the film being exposed. after first shot, camera will have flash. but do not open the film cover again. if you open and take out the film it will expose to light and film turn out to be white. http://www.passiongadgets.com/
First of all you can't use that film anymore. If it gets ejected, it gets exposed to light which causes the film to develop.
Also the film was already exposed when you didn't load it in the camera yet. When you buy a new cassette (that's the film holder) there's a darkslide on top. This darkslide prevents light to get to the film. When you load your camera, the darkslide ejects immediately. That is what happens to your last film. The camera recognizes it as a new cassette and ejects the darkslide, but in this case it's the film.
Your question really only seems to be half complete but from what I understand these are a standard printer in which you can replace the 150 dollar toner cartridges as you please.
As far as installation locate your print cartridge. Generally you can pull these directly from the printer but remember how it's seated as this will help you with your new one. Open the new cartridge shaking it horizontally for a few minutes, I put in a few ups and downs as well to make sure the toner is evenly distributed through out the cartridge. Don't forget the tape, rip it straight off and don't keep the film there exposed too long too the sun. Slide the cartridge in, shut the door and press power to reset the machine and have it accept the new cartridge completely.
IT IS POSSIBLE.. I think is really what the answer is.
This is due to old film. All photo packs are now past their use by dates and as it ages the chemical pack in each photo thickens and the ejection rollers are less able to squeeze it into the distant corners. The brownish film is the actual film surface which has not had the developing emulsion spread across it.
Possible you got a bad film cassette. In the original Polaroid camera packs they had batteries which actually powered the whole camera. The batteries may be dead or not have much charge in them. They are good for a couple years and as you indicate the expiration is up in another month... Good luck
This is due to an old photo pack as they're all past the use by date now: the battery built in to it had just enough power to eject the protection sheet and take a photo, but then went flat. There's nothing you can do to remedy this unless you fit an external battery pack. There are no kits to do this with, you have to rig something up on a DIY basis but it is fairly simple with a few basic tools and a little ingenuity. The original batteries were 6v and the camera works at 4.5v; the higher voltage gives a bit of leeway as the battery slowly discharges whilst the film pack is stored and unused.
Maybe battery is working but barely. Try using another film pack. Make sure usin a new film pack something like Impossible Project 600 Film packs.
Anyway unless you are a collector or it has some sentimental value I would move to one of these new Instant Cameras . These cameras work better and new Polaroid film and Instax film are way better. Twice or more cheaper too.
