I need help with one Polaroid sun 660.

It seems that auto focus is not working at all. After investigation on internet i noticed that this camera has a 4 disc lens , so every time that you press the shutter button , sonar calculates and the camera chooses the right lens for the given distance. In my case all photos are blurred and pressing the shutter button ( using flash or not ) the internal lens are not moving.

I was searching for a repair manual or instructions, but unfortunately i cannot find such documents. Please advice if you know how to repair this. Removing the front cap i was not able to correct the problem. Probably i have to go deeper, removing more parts of the device but, without advice or repair manual i will never be sure what i am doing there.

Just to say that it is not related with power - i have used different cartridges and the problem persists. Thanks!

  • @MichaelC The battery for this camera is in the film pack, and in my experience will be strong enough to operate the electronics, including flash, and photo ejection motor for many cycles after the film from the pack is gone. – Zeiss Ikon Jun 1 '20 at 11:09

You can find a teardown of a similar model at iFxit. Sadly the content is too vast to copy it over, so you will have to cope with an external link:
