Problem with Polaroid 636 closeup

Postby golden_slumber » Fri 07 February 2014 / 17:44 pm

Hello, I got my first Polaroid camera just few days ago and it all goes wrong since a shot didn't go all the way out of the camera. I pulled it out a bit and there is a thin black paper left in. No more shots came out since then. So I thought it's caused because of the paper and I tried really hard to take it out, at the end it got torn and the camera is of course still not working. I have no idea where the thin black paper came from (hope it didn't really belong there) and whether there could be some problem with the film cassette or what has actually happend. I would be grateful if you let me know any idea how can I possibly repair my little camera.. :cry:

Did you try to open the camera in order to unload the cartridge ? At worst you'll lose the current photo.

Have a look on this video and please explain where it went wrong in loading the cartridge, taking a picture....

C'est joli, mais pas très efficace.
