Kodak's instant-camera refund will be delayed.

January 24, 1986

Eastman Kodak's refund program for owners of soon-to-be-worthless Kodak instant cameras will be postponed about a month because of delays in printing forms and brochures, the company said. Kodak began the program--in which consumers call 1-800-792-3000 to get a packet of information about the refunds--on Jan. 9 and has received more than 700,000 calls. In exchange for consumers' instant cameras, Kodak is offering either a new disc camera and two film discs, a share of Kodak common stock or a coupon book worth $50 off Kodak merchandise. A federal judge ordered Kodak to stop making or selling instant cameras and film by Jan. 9 because it had violated seven Polaroid patents.
