Polaroid Image Elite Problem

Postby JulianS » Mon 23 March 2015 / 17:30 pm

Hi Guys,

i just got hold of a Image Elite Camera which looks pretty "never used".

When i insert a film in (which i found, too, expired of course) power is up, i can see the range indicator, flash works everyhting is fine.

But when i take a picture the photo doesnt seem to be able to be ejected from the cartrige. I hear a click and a motor sound but when i open the cartrige, the picture is stuck between the rolls (and of course brown). I tried taking the film out and pulling the used picture through the rollers, which seems to be going very hard. The rollers seem to be clean though.

Am I doing anything wrong? I simply insert the cartrige and press the shutter :)

Thanks!

Mostly the battery isn't as strong as back then.

Maybe the chemicals are dried up, so that the clumps don't fit between the rollers anymore...
It's too bad she won't live. Then again who does.
