all-black photos..!greenspun.com : LUSENET : polaroid transfers : One Thread
I have a polaroid land camera 450 (that takes 669 film), and photos taken with it are coming out all blueblack (no image at all). I assume this is probably my own fault, as the camera came out of a dumpster, and without an instruction manual.. But: since there isn't an instruction manual, is there any possible way I could be making a stupid mistake somehow? Thanks!

I'm a little new at this myself, but I had the same problem with my 250 when I first got it. I realized that the battery was dead, though. Took me a few days to get a new one, but it works fine now.
Try clicking the shutter without any film in different lighting conditions. Hold down the shutter--in lower lighting, the shutter should make it's second click after a considerable pause. If you don't hear the second click, your battery may be dead.
