The blades are set so only visible light passes through the first photopic aperture to the photocell. However, the flash is fired by the internal clock reaching 74 ms, rather than by the photocell light measurement. Its built-in printer lets you share on the spot with high-quality, full color photos on adhesive-backed paper, without the hassle of ink and toner cartridges. For outdoor pictures, the flash is used to provide a proportional fill-flash to eliminate objectionable shadows. Functional Test Perform the following functional test on the 636 camera using film pack simulator 12467.
Like all of the 600 line, the 636 uses a new film format. Replace S1 button or S-l slider. The Model 636 shares many of the features of the 635 and 640 Cameras. When the clock reaches 74 milliseconds ms , the flash is fired. The S5 actuator drops, closing S5L and S5P, turning on the motor. This chart shows the light spectrum.
This section deals exclusively with the 636 Polaroid Camera. Carefully remove the dowel pin and test Shutter Blade operation by moving the Walking Beam Assembly to produce an aperture. While the probability of the B-600 going out of calibration is unlikely, the B-600 should be checked daily. The top half of the filter passes visible light which the human eye can see. Replace strobe with known good test strobe.
The center of the target must be aligned with the taking lens of the camera under test. Testing the Model 636 Camera: 1. If the Camera has a Tripod Nut, it will now fall out. Carefully, tilt the tester and install two risers 12885 under the leveling legs. Basically, the Model 636 uses either a light measurement alone to fire and shut down the flash, or a combination of light measurement and time measurement to fire and shut down. Next, slide the Shuttle to the left and lift its left end to remove.
All these batteries of the old stocks are pretty much dead by now, they are not rechargeable, and they are not produced by anyone. Using tweezers, grasp the end of the opening blade spring. Tilt the Plate down- ward into position, making sure the Inertia pivot post enters its hole in the Base Block. They usually use a type of battery called polapulse batteries rated at 6-6. An alternate way to charge the flash is to lightly press the exposure button. If necessary, remove the S10 movable contact.
Remove the film pack simulator and install door pawl closure 12082. The internal clock is running and the photocell starts to measure light. Star Tester Controls and Indicators E. Closing S1 energizes the solenoid which pulls in slightly. Quite obviously you must know how the 636 Camera works before you can start to diagnose its problems. To remove film from the dead cartridge, just slide it out.
The problem is that once you have gotten your nifty new product, the polaroid onestep talking camera manual gets a brief glance, maybe a once over, but it often tends to get discarded or lost with the original packaging. The sound effects can be switched off completely if desired. Initial Inspection The following procedure should be done before you get involved in an operational check of the 636 Camera. First, remove the Spring with tweezers Fig. Remove the four remaining Gears and the Spacer from their shafts Fig. The dark slide is ejected and the counter set to 10. Camera Adjustments correcting out-of-spec test results This section describes adjustments which can be made to correct readings which are out-of-specification on the Star Tester 12650-2.
Remove Viewfinder Housing by tilting rear end upward Fig. Move the wire out of the way. Move the opening blade spring up in the rack to increase the reading or down in the rack to decrease the reading Fig. The same way is also possible if you prefer to search by choosing the menu:. Therefore, the light passing through the infrared filter is balanced, preventing the photocell from being fooled by contrasting levels of light or dark subject matter. Test Procedures: Model 636 Flash Timing Aperture The purpose of this test is to measure blade aperture at the point of flash fire. The light box and the electronics required to compute and display exposure, timing and functional test measurements are housed in a single chassis see Fig.
Using a dental pick, narrow-bladed screwdriver or other suitable tool, adjust the ambient calibration disc see Fig. Install the film pack simulator again: - The camera should go through the dark slide cycle. Note that the number 6 is upside down and facing forward. The light reflected off just about all materials is equal. Folded by hsalnat When the loudspeaker is turned off, this camera functions in much the same way as a standard OneStep 600, with fixed focus and automatic flash.
