Question about Polaroid Photography
I don't know of any Polaroid instant camera with that model number. Most all Polaroids that used pack film were powered by a battery that was incorporated in each film pack.

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

there is no battery in the camera. the battery comes from the film. the film has a battery in it already. you MUST have film in the camera for the light to go on and the flash to go off. all polaroid camera's are the same. you must have the film in the camera for it to work.

Change the photo pack. That's where the battery is located, you get a fresh battery with every pack.
Note that all remaining photo packs are now beyond their expiry dates as production ceased last year so many will have flat batteries or batteries with insufficient charge to last for the full ten shots. There's no fix for this: all that can be done is to rig up an external battery pack but there is no standard kit for this so it's very much a DIY project. the camera draws 4.5v and the standard battery was 6v when freshly manufactured.

How old is the film in it?
Polaroid film packs have a battery included (a polarpulse powercell, I think).
If its an old film, the battery can go flat and as far as I'm aware there's no way to get power in to it.
I would take the cartridge out, (effectively not use the last shot), try a new cartridge to see if its working properly, then send the old cartridge back to Polaroid, if you think its faulty.
