Sun 660 Mirror

Postby Foreigner037 » Mon 08 January 2018 / 19:01 pm

Hello everyone, having experience with Polaroid for almost two years now, I recently decided to buy myself a camera too, a Sun 660 one. It's in very good condition and takes nice photos, but the previous owner was a smoker and the whole camera smelled awful, so I decided to clean it. Upon further inspection I noticed that there is a mirror on the inner side of the I don't know what to call it, maybe developing chamber. That mirror was quite dusty and I decided to clean it with a q-tip attached on a quite long toothstick. I was successfull in cleaning it but after that noticed that there are traces of where I rubbed the q-tip and also that there are light but visible under certain condition scratches. I am worried that this will affect the picture qualty. Should I worry or are the scratches not gonna have such a big effect on the pictures?

I've searched everywhere but cannot find a person with a similar problem, every post is about DSLR cameras. Can this even be repairable? If there is a problem can I flip the mirror since i've seen that it's reflective on both sides or even in extreme cases swap it from another camera?

Hello,
Polaroid films are exposed from the front, the mirror is here to correct the upside down / left right inversion of the image due to the lens.
So, yes, scratches will have an effect. To what point? impossible to guess --> just try.

All is repairable, it is just a question to find the replacement part and the people able to do the repair. Concerning mirror, you can find offers on internet to make a mirror to your dimensions.

Concerning repairman, it depends on your location, try to find people close to your home.

Regards,
Cordialement,
MikeNavy
