Hello out there!
Joined this forum in slight desperation. I recently decided to break out my grandfather's old Polaroid 800 from storage. On inspecting it I found that the shutter isn't opening. On checking further, it appears that a spring is loosely floating within the shutter assembly, and this tiny little plate.
I've been searching high and dry for some type of photo or diagram or a repair manual that shows what the inside of this shutter assembly should look like. Or even what the 150 or 95A/B should look like, as they are similar, both with mechanical shutters. The only information I can find online is in reference to electric/battery operated shutters and models.
With that said, would anyone else here happen to have an 800 that could share a photograph of what the shutter assembly should look with all of it's parts in place? Happy to post a picture as well. Actually, I just tried and I get an error message about a photo quota?
Anyways, I realize most say just go by another 800 because they can be found relatively cheap, but this is more of a sentimental thing for me to use this specific camera.
Any help appreciated!
