Why won't my Polaroid SNAP print the pictures I am taking?

I have taken a few pictures and all of them printed out without a problem, however none of the photos I have taken recently have printed. I'm pretty sure my camera doesn't have any damage or problems!

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi guys!

Well, I bought mine yesterday and I had the same "problem".

I don't really know why it happens but what I did was:

1. The blue paper should be a bit more "inside" of the camera than the rest of the papers. There's a little hole on the right (where it gets out from then) and when you turn on again the camera the blue paper leaves the camera immediately without doing anything in special.

2. Then you're able to use ur camera.

If you need more help, I would be pleased to share with you my experience

Bye! :D

hey! I was having the same issue as others have stated: my camera beeps three times and then doesn't take pictures or turn off. I reset my camera so it would turn off, and thenI tried your method- putting the blue paper more "inside" the camera than the rest, and I turned the camera back on, and voila! the blue paper was ejected! I was excited, as I thought the problem was resolved, but sadly, after the paper was ejected, the same thing just happened over and over again. Three beeps, no printing, no turning off. Would you happen to have any other suggestions?

You probably swapped out the paper and could be using the wrong type of paper which would be the reason that the it is not printing.

There was a small reset button next to the charger port that you need a PIN to stick into it to reset the camera

My daughter just had this problem. It was because the paper was upside down. When you load the paper it goes picture side up. If you are looking at the back of the camera when it prints, you should see the picture, not the writing.

Please help I just recently got my Polaroid snap touch and my borders and stickers do not work when I click on the icon to use them it’s blank or instead of having the borders it’s just black boxes. If anyone has had this problem please let me know if you have a way to fix I would greatly appreciate it ! :)

To everyone who was having this issue - I was until five minutes ago - I just took out the blue paper, even if the instructions tell you to include it.

The camera worked fine!!

I took my blue sheet out and now my camera won't print, and the lights won't shut off even though the camera isn't on, and the middle light keeps flashing and beeps whenever I press any of the buttons. This is brand new and I've only used it a few times.

Make sure the Zink labelled side of paper is facing down with blank side up

Does this mean the Zink labelled side is facing the opposite side of the actual lense??

If you don’t let the paper roll by itself into the hole for it to print it won’t print it will come out blank, I was pushing my paper and then I just put some in there and took a picture and didn’t touch it and it printed !! Hope this helped!!!

My wasn’t working because the 3rd light was blinking. This means that you have no storage left on the snap so you need to get an SD card.

Hi I have just got my Polaroid snap camera and I’m having trouble with it. When I go to take a picture it flashes as if it’s taking the picture but then freezes with the flash still on. Then if I press any other buttons while it’s doing this it does the 3 beeps. I then have to press the reset button because it won’t turn off. Please help as I haven’t been able to use it yet x
