Polaroid One-Step 600 Troubleshooting

Camera Will Not Turn On

Dead Battery

If the camera does not turn on, the problem may be that the battery is dead and needs to be replaced. The cartridge holding the undeveloped film and power pack are the same unit. After replacing the cartridge, the camera should turn on.

Camera Will Not Take Pictures

Out of Film

If you are trying to take pictures, but the camera will not shoot, the camera may be out of film. All you need to do is replace the cartridge. Once the cartridge is replaced, try turning the camera on and taking a picture.

The Flash Will not Go Off

Bad Connection Between the Bulb and Camera

If the flash will not go off while taking a picture, there may be a bad connection between the camera and flash. The wires may have been severed and will need to be checked out.

The Bulb is Burned Out

If the flash still will not go off after the connection has been checked out, the bulb may have burned out. You may need to replace your Polaroid camera.

I will put the film into my camera and it will make a loud kind of "rrrrr" and the top rolly thing (sorry if you need a more detailed description ask) keeps spinning until I take out the film. This camera was my great grandpas before he recently passed and I want to use it like he did.

Please help.

I've been using a spirit 600 for a few months and it's been working great. All of a sudden it's stopped ejecting pictures. I've lost two packs of film so far to this :( any help is appreciated.
