I - PRINCIPLES OF SHUTTER OPERATION
-
The simplest explanation of the way aU camem
-
work is: a certain amount of Ught is allowed to
fal! on a photographic film for a certain amount
-
. of time. The amount of light is controUed by the
aperture (hole) in the camera shuuer. The amount
of time is controlled, in the 300 Series Polaroid
land Cameras. by a photocell (electric eye) and
-
associated ele<:[ronic circuitry. When a shutter
is operated. the film is expO$ed to light. and the
-
Electronic Module measures the 'time of exposure'.
thereupon permitting mechanical action to close
the shutter after sufficient elapsed time.
- Since the shutteB described in this manual are
almost identical. the following mechanical and
electrical sequences win apply to all of them,

2, The aperture seiector controls tbe light enter­
ing the camera at any moment: the opening
blade beg;ns the exposure. the dosing bbde
ends the and the electronic module
circuits regulate the length of exposure time.
3. To operate. the shutter must first be co<:ked
'by depressing the cocking arm (Fig. As
the arm moves, it pulls the cocking slide, which
in turn, pulls the opening blade to its opernting
position. While the opening blade moves. it
carries the closing blade along with it. When
the opening blade has been moved far enough,
a latch pin integral with it, forces the blade
latch down, until the pin passes a shoulder, on
the latch. As the pin slides beyond the latch
shoulder, the latch snaps up, securing the pin
and holding both shutter blades in the cocked
position.
4. WhiJe the shutter is uncocked. the blade latch
holds the timing swilOh (S2) open (FiJI. I-n
Cocking the shutter causes the 5eCUring of the
latch pin, and thereupon the blade latch allows
the sptill,ll-Ioaded timing .witch to close, an ac­
tion necessary to start electronic circuit functions.

position, a roller contacts a tang on the blade
latch. and forces the blade latch down (Fig.
This action, first: releases the opening blade,
-
and it snaps into position, aUowing light to pass
through, exposing the film; secondly, pennits
the blade latch to open switch 52. Opening 52
-
initiates the electronic measurement of the
amount of light and time to which the film is
being exposed. The photocell uses the average
scene light to control the: flow of current through
- the liming circuit. When the proper time, de­
pending on fUm selected, and aperture size, has
elapsed. the magnet current is cut off. ThiS re­
leases the closing blade, which rapidly snaps back.
-
and shuts off the light, completing the mm
exposure.

8. The above action also fires the flash gun when
(ine is used_ The combination (Fig. lw2) of
-
make. X--connecter, and
Rash saft':ty switches controls the firing of the
flam.
B. ELECTRICAL ACTION
I, Electrical action is initiated. controlled, timed,
-
and terminated by the Electronic Module sub­
assembly of the shutter. Mechanical action.
as previously described. is part of the overall
electromechanical action_ Switches must first
be opened or dosed in predetermined sequence
in order to start the electric circuits functioning.

concerned here, is virtually identical. The ele<?
tneal action is aiso the same as far as basic
pose is concerned: the time and quantity
surements of light. But increasing
tion of design, and employment of miniaturized
components, has led to the developmenl of
many different electronic modules.
3. Electrical action will be described in detail with
respect to the ultimate purpose of the circuitry,
but without concentration on the specifiC uses
of components. The following section (Section
Ill) wiJl present detailed information. including
identification, and sufficient other data. to
mit field use of any Electronic Modules stOCked.
This contributes to economical. customer repairs,
4. The basic eJectronic circuit is a two (2) rransistor
trigger: it uses a photocell to control the length
of time that a small electromagnet is energized
(Fig. 1-5). Power for the circuit illustrated (Fig. ! w 7)
is obtained from a 4.5 volt bauery. Later modules
use a 3 vol t type power source.
5. Electrical action requires the closing of switches;
S2 and then, S 1. the battery power switch,
51 is closed by pressing the shutter release button.
When SI operates, power is applied simultaneous­
ly to two (2) circuits: 1) the electromagnet hold­
ing circuit, and 2) the capacitor by-pass circuit.
In the first circuit, current flows from the battery
(Schematic Fig. 1-7) through SI to one terminal
of the coil of the electromagnet M. and through
RI to the base of transistor Q2.
As the volta&e on the base of Q2 increases, the
NPN transistor turns on, because Emitter to
Base electronic current flow begins. With Q2
"on", current now flows through the coil of the
magnet M, completing this circuit and holding
the closing shutter blade OPEN. See diagram.
Fig.. 1-8. for a representation of the described
current now_
In the by-pass circuit, current flows (Ft" 1-9)
from the battery. through S I. photocelJ LDR. re­
sistor R6, and S2, to the other side of the battery.
This completes this cjrcuit. and by-passes the
ponents noted on Fig. 1-9, just sO long as S2 re­
mains clOsed.

This review includes 100. 200. find 300 Series Cameras.
-
A. SIMILARITIES
-
t. The mechanical operations previously explain­
ed apply generally to all the shutters with slight
differences to be herein described. Because the
-
Model 362 Shutter is the original, and all others
are variations and improvements. on that shut­
ter. the previous discussion in Section J, is basic­
ally. a fu11 treatment of the Mode1362 Shutter.
-
If more precise and detailed mechanical action
knowledge (assembly and disassembly) is de­
sired, refer to the Repair Manual on Automatic
- Shutters, Models 362, 366 and 374, published
May 1965.
-
8. DIFFERENCES
I. From I"e Model 362 to the Mode13S9 Shutters
-
the main difference is not mechanical. it is elec­
trical. The mode1385 Shutter is fully explain­
ed in the Model 360 Camera Repair Manual, so
-
it will not be considered in these instructions.
By virtue of changing.. and adding or subtl'3cting
components, the integral Electronic Modules,
have been refined so that approximately six­
teen (16) varieties now exist. The variations
- for the most part are minor. bUt the physical
pIacement of components on the board, the
size and number, the identifyIng color codes.
and the different flexible circuit solder points.,
-
are possible problem factors.. The changes were
occasioned by other changes in the cameras
themselves: $Uch as: adding an electronic timer.
etc.
2. To provide an answer for this problem and to
-
make it possible to substitute one module for
any or all of the others. is the purpose of this
manual. The method to be followed is: an ex­
-
haustive deve!opment of all significant
tion about tne modules: an arbitrary number­
jng to be applied as a positive means of Type
identification. and separation; and. finally, pre­
cise directions as how to economically convert
from one type to anotber. wbere interchange­
ability is simple and feasible.

3. The Table, Fig. 2-1. shown on opposile page,
is a compilation of the information presently
available on aU electronic modules now, or
previously used, on the automatic shutters for
pack cameras.
The remarks column briefly describes tbe
changes made. The text develops the differences
in more detail, and will indicate which modules
are interchangeable and if anything, has
to be done to them) to substitute one type for
another.
C. COLOR CODING
I. Control SIIul .... Speed
a. Color coding of photocells. capaci­
tors" and resistors is used for two (2) purposes.
One is to positively identify a component for
ease of replacement. The other is 10 system­
atize replacement of components when shutter
speed is to be increased or decreased. Use the
color code to go up or down in speed. These
coJor codes are used only for photocells and
C3tH'CitOrs. The photoceU color chart is illus­
trated in Fig. 2w2. Capacitors use exactly the
aLUB
aLACK
RBa
VBLLOW
GRBaN
WHITa
ORANGB
FIG. 2·2 PHOTOCELL COLOR CHART
same colors but the fast, slow direction is re­
versed. A photocell of the same color as the
one replaced generally solves a problem of in­
correct trigger voltage. If it is necessary to use
cells of a different rating go down in color­
from blue to black - etc. to increase shutter
speeds; go up in color - from orange te white­
etc. to deere_ shutter speeds.
b. Further shutter speed control is possible by
changing capacitance values. Use the same
scheme, Fl" but reverse the directions:
e.g., go up in color - from orange to white ­
etc. to increase shutter speeds; go down in
color - from blue to black - etc. to decrease
shutter speeds.
2. Component Identification
a. Color coding of components, solely for ease
of replacement and identification, is more
complex. The method used originally on the
362 shutter is illustrated in Fig. 2-3 and explain-­
ed as follows: capacitors; the first stripe (neal'"
est the positive lead) is used to denote the color
group to which the capacitor belongs; the se­
cond stripe indicates its schematic reference
designation - C I. etc. Resistor color bands
are industry standard indicating resistance values
and toferance percentages,
b. Unfortuna(ely. this type of component color
coding, did not remain constant with product
improvement and other engineering changes.
styli: c4pacitofS are used in subsequent
models and <;e\'cro! additional ways of coding
wcft'de\'ised - wHh the flnal method, being
th..: pnnlmg: of the ;).clUai capacitance value, in
microfarads. on the side of the component. On
these types. the rounded end indicates the posj..
tive lead. When a problem exists because of
strange or mixed color coding, reference rnu&t
be made to the associated Electrical Value Table,
(EVT). See Fig. 3-3 while reading _phc
following.
c. The color wigned to the photoce1l is goveminJ;
road the table homontally, belinning with the
first column photoce1l cOOelot .. ZABCDEF.
and continuing to the ri&b.t. The color codes
as wen as the component parameter value is
given. Simply replace the faulty part with •
piece of the same numerical value: lOmicro­
farad capacitor, etc. The photocen. ca.p8(litor.
and resistance values are au interdependent and
so grouped.
D. SllUITER APERTURE OPERATION
Refer to the Manual on Shutter Operation for •
complete description of the operation of the
aperture wheel on the 362 Shutter.
The identical information applies to the Shutters
tabulated in Fig. 2-1. Also, the same information
applies to tneType 366 Shutter. This manuol is
concerned with the mechanical and elexUical <fP'"
eration of shutters not previously covered in the
aforementioned document: basically. the 384
Shutter. along with the 383 and the 386. Since
the 384 is the mQSt complex; it will be the only
type discussed.

IV - TROUBLESHOOTING AND REPAIR
-
This section is devoted exclusively to the trouble­
shooting. repair and adaptation of Electronic
Shutter Modules. Consequently, mechanical
troubleshooting and repair infonnation will not
be presented. For in depth treatment of mechani·
-
cal aspects of Shutter operation, including trouble
investipting, see the Manual on Automatic Shutter
operation published. in May 1968.
A. TESTING
1. Resistors and Capacitors
-
Looking at the top of the module. the various
components are easily identified by shapes andl
or color markings. Resistors are long. tubular de­
vices.. with four (4) colored stripes around the
body: capacitors are of two types: one is similar
to the resistor shape, but has only 2 colors or less
-
stripes. and may have one end rounded: the other
is a flat. disc"'5haped type. usually mounted
vertically.
3. Testing Resistors
Because resistors may be, and usuaUy are, electri­
cally in parallel. it is necessary to unsolder one lead
from the module in order to test it (Fig. 4-1).
-
--­ CAPACITOR
41
Place [he test leads of an ohmmeter. set at the
proper scale, on each end of the resistor. The
meter should register the approximate resistance
of the component being measured. If the meter
needle fails to move, the resistor is no good and
must be replaced. Similarly. if the needle registers
zero and remains there. the resistor may be short­
ed. To decide positively. c h a n ~ the meter scales.
zeroing the needle for each range and retest. If
the result is still a meter reading of zero. replace
the resistor in question.
b. Testing Capacitors
Capacitors may be checked in a similar manner.
Unsolder either lead from the module. place the
probes of an ohmmeter. set at any scale, on each
lead of the capacitor. The meter needle will de-­
flect slightly and then. slowly. start to drop back;
this shows that the capacitor has been charged.
Reverse the probes on the capacitor leads. Now.
the meter needle must deflect fully, and then drop
back; this indicates capacitor discharge. The pre­
vious sequence is nonnal and usuaUy shows a good
component. If the needle deflects and remains
on zero, the capacitor is shorted and must be re-­
placed. If the needle does not move at aU, the
capacitor is open, and also, must be replaced.
2. Replacing Resistors and Capacitors
To replace any component soldered into the module.
the solder must be removed with a vacuum type
soldering iron - a so-called solder gobbler: this is
necessary to avoid damaging the flexible circuit.
When replacing a part, trim and bend the new leads
to match those of the part removed and insert the
leads into the same tenninal hole from which the
old component was removed. Solder the new
component in place.
3. Testing Transistors
Transistors are of several types, color coded as
previously explained in the Electrical Values
tables - generally identifiable by the three (3)
lead configuration - Emitter-Base-Collect.or
(E-B-C). The PhotoceU is unique and. therefore.
identification is no problem, as in the Integrated
Grcuit (I.e.).
Leads do not have to be unsoldered in order to
tt$t Tranmtors. Refer to the appropriate draw­
ing. for the solder points on the underside of the
modute. Locate the emitter t base. and collector
leads. Set an ohmmeter to the RXI K scale and
pia"" the p<>sitlve (+) probe on the collector (0
and the neptive (-) probe on the emitter (E).
Place a screwdriver tip. across the posi­
tion probe and the transi.tor base (BUFig. 4-2).
The tnmsistor should switch ON. causing meter
needle movement. If no needle repJace
the transistor.
4. Testing Integrated CimIits (I.C)
A method. similar to the transistor test described
above. is used to test Integrated Orcuits. on a
G()'NO GO basis only. ThIs system wiH detennine
that the LC. is operating. See Fig. 4-3 and proceed
as follows: connect the power fmm a 3 volt bat­
tery or other direct current 3V (D.C.) source. to
the solder connections ,(Fig. 3-13) on the under­
side of the module. Observe the proper polarity,
the positive lead from the battery must be COrr
nected to pin 3 and the negative must be connect­
ed to pin 4 of the Le. To simulate an operational
signal use an ohmmeter. set the scale to RXI K
and use the ohmmeter leads as illustrated: the
positive lead. using a pin type probe. placed on
the Input. pin 2 and the negative lead. placed On
the Output. pin I. Observe thai the ohmmeter
needle deflects and continues to move slowly. J(
the needle does not deflect. the I.e. is inoperative
and mu.'IIt be replaced. If the needle deflects Cull
scale aod remains at zero, the I.e. is shorted and
must be replaced,

B. INTERCHANGING MODULES
Since all of the Electronic Modules used in the
Camera systems are an outgrowth of the original
362 Shutter Module, Type 1, it follows that
changes. s\lbstitutions or deletions may alter
one configuration to another. Data on substitu­
tion possibilities will be provided in the fonn of
a Table (Fig. 4-4). Study of the Table wiH reveal
exactly how to change one Module into another.
