When looking on super 8 wiki it says this camer needs 6 AA bateries to run and I found the place to put 4 batteries.

Where do the other 2 go?

Also, how do you test to see if the camera is working.

Thanks,
Paul Royar

If I had to take a guess, perhaps the other two are for the sound amplifier, in which case you can forget about them because you won't be shooting sound.
Just put the batteries in. It doesn't need film to run. You should be able to see if the meter is working, there will be an indicator of some kind.

It also has a plug in for a 6 volt charger or something like that, do i need to plug it in and charge it before it will work? or are the batteries enough?

That will be for running it off an external battery pack or 6V supply. There should be a switch built in to the socket to cut out the batteries, but if in doubt remove them. It replaces the batteries, it's not a charger.
