Hello Joseph from the UK,

If the film is developing blank, we recommend that you check to make sure the shutter is functioning properly and the light/five-mode dial is set to proper lighting. If the problem consists then replace the batteries. The other problem may be that the film you have has gone bad and at this point you'll need to buy a new batch.

Cheers!,

Richard

1- you may have squished or damaged the film

2- you may have left the film in a hot place and have messed with the chemical inside it

3- maybe the film was always just messed up since you bought it

Instax mini 8 cameras come with batteries that I believe are energizer batteries but if you read the manual/instructions it comes with then you will see that it says that alkaline batteries work best for it.

Ours did the same thing and we realized that we touched the back part where your not supposed to touch. We tried another film pack and was very careful NOT to touch it and it worked. So maybe you made the same mistake we did. :)

Make sure that on the back of the camera there is a number and not an s. If there is an s, and you take a picture, nothing will come out, but if there is a number, it will use the film and take the actual picture.

If you opened it before they were all gone, then they may have been exposed to sunlight and not worked.

Are you opening the back part after every failed picture? Ya I would stop. When you do that the camera goes back to S and will be trying to take off the back cover of the picture pack again, also not taking the picture.

Change the batteries first. Worked for us. We installed the batteries that came with the camera. Even though it powered on and would feed the film, the pictures did not develop or came out totally black, white or a combo of both. Some had colored dots etc. Changing the batteries correct the problem, all pics now develop. Just incase you want to know we installed the energizer bunny! (-:

Their nothing wrong with the camera.

Its suppose to relate to the old fashion camera thats the whole point. The picture with be blank at first but got to give it a few minutes so the foto can cool off and the picture will appear. When your out side you put it on sunny mode and when inside the house or restrant put the camera on inside. Its amazing and i love it .. it just takes ime to be able to use it..
