    Hello,

    Can anyone recommend a source for repairs on Polaroid passport cameras?

    It is a big, honking, ugly thing that would be really hilarious to use, but the aiming lights don't work, and it needs a battery charger. It was given to me for free, so I would not mind spending some money getting it working.

    I think your going to have a hell of a time trying to repair this camera.

    When I tried to take apart my miniportrait, (not 206 - but close) I found out that the whole thing was put together with cement and rivets.

    Good luck!
