Land 1000 locked

Messagepar AngeloLand » dim. 15 août 2021 / 13:10 pm

Hi to everyone,

I bought in a vintage market an old Polaroid Land 1000 in very outside good conditions.
Unfortunately trying it with Polaroid Impossible films the camera seems to be locked.
It doesn't work, the starter motor shows no signs of life and does not eject the black film card.

I completey disassembly the camera but there are no signs of wear on the circuits, no blockages in the gears.
I also measured the voltage on the battery and on the polaroid and motor circuit but I don't know the voltage values ​​it should have.

Any suggestions ?

Regards,
Angelo

Hello,

Maybe the contact tabs could be oxidised ?

Try to remove and reinsert the film pack several times (at least 10 times) without closing the film door : it can scratch the tabs and remove some of the oxidation.
Warning: that way, you'll lose the upper film.

Thanks,

I did it, following your suggestion but it doesn't work.
The contacts are very cleaned. I can send some pictures if necessary.
Other suggestions ?

Regards,
Angelo

Then it may be a cut wire or an electronic problem.

You should find a Polaroid 1000 repair manual.

The easiest way, therefore, is to find another camera. Possibly a 600, as there are more films for these cameras.
