Polaroid 360 problem

Messagepar durr3 » mer. 08 août 2012 / 13:28 pm

I have a 360 that appears to be in excellent condition, BUT I cannot pull the film out after exposure is taken. I have wasted a whole pack of film trying and it tears on me each time. What's up with this?

Hello
It's probably a pack film problem. I suppose you used a Fuji pack film. The problem with theses packs it that their back is in plastic whereas original polaroid were made of metal. There are several solution for this. You can, after you have taken the exposure, slightly open the back of the camera, just a little bit and then pull the picture as normal. These will avoid the pressure on the back of the pack film and will let you pull easily. Another solution is changing the back of the pack when you load the film pack for the first time. Take an old metal polaroid film back and replace it in your new fuji pack. This should be a solution.
Now if you were using old polaroid film packs and in your 360, maybe they are too old and they're glued.
That's it

first check the rollers. they should be clean and one of the 2 should move easily. check if the trap in front of the rollers is not stuck. then check if you loaded the film correctly. there are videos on youtube which show you how. pull the black shield, which can be a bit difficult with the 360. now the white strips are accessible. take your photo. when you pull the upmost white strip, the trap slightly opens and the yellow strip appears. pull the yellow strip slowly but steadily and there you are. wait the seconds indicated and pull apart.

the first 2 photos can be difficult to pull on cameras with timer backs. the possible solution was already indicated above. good luck.

My 360 had the timer which made it extremely difficult even for the standard solutions listed above. i eventually needed to remove the time mechanism by drilling the rivets out. I also had to completely remove the metal spring also by drilling the rivets. My 250 without the timer, all I had to do was push the spring down to loosen it. Someone also told me you can swap the back on the 360 for one without the timer. Did you get a working flash with your 360? The one I got was beyond repair.

yes, you can easily swap the backs, they are all nearly the same. just think of insulating the cut wires and don't cut too short in case that you want put to put the original one back later.

I didn't get any of my 3 flashes repaired, but there are members on the forum who were luckier than me.
