Shane...I just came across this thread. In case you don't have an answer already, the battery which powers Sx-70 cameras is actually in the film pack itself. Purchase a new film pack and see if the camera fires up.

As far as value of these camera, there is a very wide range of purchase prices on E-Bay, dependent on model, condition, and whimsy, among other things. Some camera stores which sell used equipment also carry Sx-70s

As for the camera value according to the McKeowns price guide(a must have for any camera collector) The sx-70s all models range from $15-$30(mint) They are not very valuable but great if you are looking to try the art side of polaroids.
