I have the problem that the lefthand bottom corner is not developed. I have cleand it but stil the problem is there. Does anybody know what can be the problem?

By cleaning, you do mean clening the rollers inside right? Make sure there isn't a glob of dried chemistry putting the rollers off also.

R.J. What film type are we talking about?

Are you sure you are pulling it straight through the holder and not at a slight angle?

I am having the same problem. I recently bought a Cambo on e-bay that came with a Polaroid 545 back. Always the lower left and sometimes both left hand corners are blank white. This problem does not occur with regular b&w negatives. I assumed that there is something wrong with the Polaroid back or possibly the box of Polaroid film.
