The red light seems to be stuck & doesn't seem to be properly working

I'm aware that I have to half-press on the red button in order to change the flash for my Polaroid.. But the red light will not turn off and change to green, and I have been waiting for several minutes.. What's wrong? It just randomly stopped working and I cannot take another photo until the light turns back to green.

natjarmay, Both the electronic flash and the camera are powered by the high-energy battery built into

every film pack. Clean the film pack contacts in the camera with a Qtip dampened with 90% Isopropyl alcohol and install new fresh good quality film pack and try the camera.

If this does not solve the problem there could be a problem in the Flash circuitry.

How would you recommend properly cleaning the film pack contacts?

by

natjarmay , the link below will show how to open th film pack door, with a flashlight you can look inside the compartment and see the copper contacts which should be reachable with long Qtip dampened with 90% Isopropyl alcohol, gently clean the contacts to remove any dust/corrosion/etc., You could also use a can of compressed air to blow out any dust/debri that you see.
