Vintage-Polaroid-Troubleshooting-Filter: Yay! I finally bought a vintage Polaroid One Step 600 (looks very similar to this
) in The Big City. I bought this film
for it. But...no pictures. Help?

Any ideas? I believe that I loaded the film correctly, as the black cartridge cover ejected as it should once the film was loaded. According to The Impossible Project
it is indeed the correct film for my camera. But when I go to take a picture, nothing happens. The flash light is on (although perhaps this is meaningless), but pressing the shutter does nothing--no noise, no resistance, no nothing--certainly no picture.
Any ideas or resources? I can definitely take the film out in my light-less bathroom if anyone has ideas about how to troubleshoot fixing this on my own. I've got a user's manual coming in the mail but I have a few events this weekend at which I'd love to use the camera, and my google-fu failed me big time.
