The Polaroid EE44 is driving me crazy!

So is the EE66 for that bloody matter. You see I happen to possess both, well not really possess, that sounds kind of materialistic - they've lived a long and decent life and are just residing with me for the rest of mine, however neither of which are much good to me with out a flash, unless of course its a beautiful sunny summer day riddled with natural light - its not by the way, its the beginnings of winter here in oz right now and Ive just bought some flash cubes of eBay and i cant for the life of me figure out how they work!

Its not like this is some square peg in a round hole type scenario, I've bought the right flash cubes, I even got them shipped here from the UK... and the socket on the side of my EE66 seems to be in working order but no matter how much a jiggle twist push and turn I just cant seem to get the flash cube to firmly attach in the socket so I thought I'd put it to you kind souls... see if anyone could throw some knowledge my way? anyone...?

  1. The EE66 and the EE44 both need batteries to make the flashcubes work ; )
    if you open the back, where you put the film in, you van lift a little plastic thingie, some kind of rack then tilts forward and you have to put 2 AA batteries in there. Your Polaroid now has the POWAAH to flash

    I hope you can use this information ; )
