    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 :confused: 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.

    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/0/353899/Classic_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 :/
