Polaroid 600 Impulse Camera Problem with the development

Postby polaroid 600 Impulse » Wed 26 August 2015 / 12:31 pm

Hey Guys!
i've got a problem with the development of the instant film. I bought this film on amazon.

http://www.amazon.de/Impossible-3220-So ... d+600+film

2 of 8 pics were good, but the other ones came out very badly. So i wrote to the seller and asked, if the film was stored correctly. I asked if the film was damaged. They answered, that the pressure rollers do not work correctly, so the picture could not develop correctly. The chemical elements of the film could not spread constantly so the pic came out blank.

Is there anybody who knows something about the pressure rolls? Is it possible to change or repair them? Or is that the dead of my camera?

Thanks for your answers and help

Best regards

Define "very badly". If you have bad roller pressure, you'll have goldish-brown areas on at least a third of your image or so. If you're getting completely washed-out (white) images: more than likely you're not shielding the image from light when it ejects. Impossible's color film still has this issue, black and white "Gen-2" doesn't.

The confusing thing is, that I had no problem with the film I used before. This was Impossible PX 680 Color Protection and all of them were without mistakes.
