Hi! A few minutes ago, I had the same problem. I also dropped my camera and the red light won't disappear. I've tried other batteries but it didn't work. After 30 minutes of changing the batteries it worked again. I suggest you use AA LR6 batteries. They have to be from the SAME brand. Don't use 2 different brand batteries. I hope it will work! (Also, please use NEW batteries. I changed my batteries with old ones and that's probably why it didn't work after 30 minutes)

this happened to my camera.. it might be different for you but i kept taking out the film so when I took a picture it turned out white so I just put a new film pack in my camera and it started to print the pictures again.

by

That means you exposed the film after the film is exposed you need to change the film and not expose film

If you make sure that all of the batteries are popped just perfectly into they're spots it will work. Make sure they're all facing the same way too. I thought I could never fix mine and I did by doing this.

Hi, we had the same issue with the Instax mini 8 andblinking lights and we could not get out the casette, we solved* Hit <enter> to insert another list item, and <enter> twice in a row to end the list. To get subitems, repeat the bullet character once for each level of indent you want (e.g. **) this by using a sisser and knife.the problem is rhat the last picture was hanging and this was caused by the small silver item in the right corner when you open it. After we removed the last casette to put a new one in this silver item did not get back to the right corner but was about 1cm above.We solved this by putting the old empty casette in it, pushed the button to make a picture and then removed the old casette again, now it was solved , the silver item was back in the right corner again and after installing a new casette it was working perfectly again
