Exclamation Solved: Polaroid 600 Land Camera Problem
So I recently just bought a Polaroid 600 Land Camera from a thrift shop in my town 'cos it was at a price I couldn't pass up. Everything looked fine on it and it even came with a cartridge of 10 blamnk photos for me to use.

So I inserted the cartridge at tried to take a picture but nothing happend I was extremely dissapointed.

Is there anybody out there that could help me with my problem? Again, it's a Polaroid 600 Land Camera Sun Auto Focus 660. I'm not sure what's wrong with it, it just won't take any pictures. Is it broken? Or do I need a new cartridge of photos?

The box the photos came with was the same type the camera uses, but it just doesn't seem to be working.

Can anybody help?

How old is the film pack? The film packs also contained the battery to power the camera. An old pack may have a dead battery.

Yes, the last post was correct. Here's the cause.

And there is no fix. The film is out of production. I've seen it online for $40-60 a box, about 5x the original price.

Well the box says best when used by 7/99 ... so I'm guessing it's pretty old...

Darn...I was really hoping it would've worked...

But I hear that Polaroid has a new instant photo camera like they did way back when called the Polaroid 300. http://www.polaroid.com/category/0/3...lassic_Instant

Thanks anyway guys

Yes, a film pack dated 1999 would probably have a dead battery and stales chemical in the film itself.

I had thought I read that some other company was going to take over manufacturing some types of Polaroid film packs. Not sure if that included film for your camera.

I hear Fujifilm still makes some, but I don't know which one would be compatible with my camera :/
