You could try to buy a charger from Polaroid, but not only will that be expensive, it could be almost impossible to find the same one you had.
I do use two universal chargers, for my camera's. mine are from GP, but I'm convinced there are other brands to. One charger, I need to adjust the spacing between the contacts, but not tree are chargers, that don't need any adjustment. The voltage needed, is found by the charger, the moment you connect the battery.
Because I do have a Kodak (3,7V) a Canon (3,7 volt) and a Nikon (7,2 volt) I have to adjust, but all batteries are charged every time.
When traveling I only need to take one charger for 2 or 3 different cameras. Next camera? I can leave the charger in the box.
same could go for you too.

For future reference, consider going to the support area of the manufacturer's website, and looking over the downoads available for the particular product.
It took me 30 seconds to find this:

It's June now, undoubtedly too late to help your student.The fact that such a simple request went unanswered for so long makes me wonder about the usefulness of this site.

Hi.. this is a common problem. Can be resolved by cleaning
your battery terminal in your camera. Open the battery compartment
and take a look at the terminals. Are they dirty??? If so use a qtip and isopropyl alcohol.
That should do the trick. If not then let me know.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

This sounds like the ccd is bad. The best thing to do is to run it by a camera repair shop, and have them take a look at it, and see what they say. Get an estimate if you decide to have it repaired, since the cost of repair can exceed that of a new camera.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

There is a small 3volt battery soldered on the main board that needs to be replaced. It has a yellow band around it, unless you can replace it yourself it's not worthwhile. If you decide to replace it beware of the flash capacitor charge.

Ciao Pino.

La Polaroid ha una batteria interna saldata sulla scheda madre (Altre marche e modelli usano una batteria tipo monetina, la Kodak ha una batteria saldata). Questa si ricarica usando le batterie principali. La batteria interna ha una autonomia di diverse ore. Il suo ruolo e' preservare le impostazioni.

Se il problema sussiste anche quando le pile nello slot sono cariche, vuol dire che la mini batteria saldata dentro la camera e' diffettosa, e non mantiene la carica.
Una camera da 5 Mp oggi vale meno di 50 euro. Se la camera funziona non vale la pena ripararla.

Please do hard reset on your camera by turning it off, removing the battery and get it turn on again. Now paired you camera with computer. If still get problem remove and re install your driver.

Try downloading it from:
http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/POLAROID/A500-_E
After locating (on right column, below the sponsored links) the link for: "download the complete user guide", you'll see another screen that asks you for your "rating" of this camera, etc. Then click on the "Download the user guide" button, to get the pdf file that you can view (on your computer) and/or print.

There should be! if the camera is new take it back to the store either for exchange or have them supply you with the missing cord. If they won't help, go to www.polaroid.com for customer support and ask for technical assistance.

If you are using the Automatic setting you should be getting fairly good pictures. Cameras are programed to make things easy in this setting and to make us happy.
If you are using the Priority settings (Shutter Priority/Aperture Priority) or Manual setting and getting bad pictures the best thing to do is either get a book on how the camera works or do a course. You have to be the Master of your Camera - even if it is a little 'happy snappy'. If you understand how a camera works you can apply it to all cameras. There is a relationship between Aperture and Shutter (that I call Zen) that gives you the correct exposure. i think a little study may help you....
