    Polaroid 100 scene selector jam

    Hello everyone. Just today I was able to get an Automatic 100 but, to my dismay, the scene selector appears to be jammed. Everything else works fine, I'm able to change speeds with the wheel properly. I can move over the knob a bit, but then it won't budge. I've never had this kind of problem with my 220 or 215. Before I have to open the shutter/lens housing, has anyone else had a similar problem?

    I was able to fix the problem myself by taking off the board cover and seeing that the lever rotating the different apertures had gone to the wrong side. It was just a matter of putting the lever (red) back along with it's tension wire (pink). I hope someone else can use this information when encountering a similar problem.

    The Polaroid 100 is a great camera, need to get another one. Children talked me out of the ones I had.
    “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”
    ― Dwight D. Eisenhower

    I couldn't agree more. While I don't want to knock the plastic models, nothing really compares to solid metal and glass. The build quality really stands out, I think.

    Consider Land 360 with flash 365 on NiMH and Li batteries. Dump that Polaroid charger.

    if the flash still works...I bought 3 of them. neither would work after a battery change. obviously the capacitors suffer from age as well.

    Revived Land 360 with flash 365

    Of course the flash 365 needs to be revived by modern components.
    Only pro like you can understand the value of fully upgraded Land 360 flash Kit, which is better than Dr. Land's original keep-it-plugged-in flash.
