Just Purchased Instax Mini 8 and Won't turn on

Hi I just recently bought a Instax Mini 8 and after following the directions it still won't turn on. It can't be the batteries cause I'm using the ones the company put with the camera. I also thought I didn't put them in right, and flipped the batteries and still nothing. Maybe I just got a bad camera, i don't know.

Is this a good question?

Have you tried other batteries? Just to give it a try I'd suggest finding some commercial batteries and give them a go.

Also when you say its not turning on does the lens pop out when you press the release button?


I'm having the exact same problem. I have tried using two types of batteries but neither of them seem to work. For me, the lens does pop out when I press the release button but doesn't turn on anywhere.

@spaceperv agree with Simeon on this. Replace the battery for sure. Just because they cam with the camera does not mean they are not discharged. If new batteries do not fix this, you should still have warranty on the camera. Use it to replace the camera. If you are already having trouble with it now, it will not get better.
