SOURCE: The neck ******** my fujifilm

The film had a leader, which is meant to be sticking through the top of the camera. The only thing I can figure you can do is to take the film out of the camera, in dim lighting or a dark room, if you have one, and reinsert and guide the film pack in correctly.
There's no guarantees that the film will be good anytime a camera has been opened, but it might, so it's worth a try. What have you got to lose...
Good luck, hope this works for you, and thanks for using FixYa.

hello aleisha.... Sometimes in this camera, that first black protective sheet does not pop out of the camera like it should. Instead it sticks or jams and has to be manually removed. In order to fix without exposing the entire roll of film you will have to do it in the dark or in a darkroom, if you have any access to one. You will have to open up the camera and remove the packet of film, then remove that black sheet or clear it of any paper jam. Joe

X-rays can fog many types of film. If you are flying you can declare that you have film, and have them manually inspect it rather than sending it through the x-ray machine.

Well, black prints on an instant, or any camera, mean that they're unexposed. So, there are a few things to check - but in your case all will probably mean losing your remaining photos.

First, when you loaded the film, did you remove, or did the camera spit out, the initial black cardboard leader? If not, this is the source of your problem. This piece must come off the film pack first otherwise nothing else is going to work.

If that came out and you're still not getting photos, you're going to need to verify that you're both using the camera properly, and that the camera is functioning properly.

You'll need to be sure that you're getting enough light to get a good photo - darkness isn't going to give a good picture, but in some situations with some high speed films, neither is too bright of a condition. I've had this problem with my polaroid camera. The camera can't compensate for an extreme high-speed film and bright sunlight so it's not even giving an exposure. Don't ask me why, but it happens. If there's an option to change settings for outdoors/indoors, try that.

If that's also not your situation, you'll need to find a way to verify that the camera's shutter is actually opening and working properly. That's easier said than done, but if the other two situations don't help, feel free to contact for further assistance.

SOURCE: Fujifilm Instax Mini 7s making loud clicking sound.

The gears that open and extend the lens have been forced, by dropping or packing away before shutting down. something got into the works and the clicking is the drive gears, or around the housing causing it to jamb. may need to be opened I would suggest going to a good will store or salvation army and get a cheap replacement for the project. Unless dissecting a camera for the project would work the mechanisms are very soft and don't take much abuse

My fujifilm instax 8 won't take a picture (blue)

I had the same problem as you. When the film goes blank you noticed that the back is brown, not black? Well that is because you are not bursting the bubble of ink that comes in the bottom of the film.
What I had to do was open my camera and fix a small detail. It turns out that the control lever light intensity has a spring that can be moved from its original location. We must accommodate that spring to get everything back to normal. I have some videos of how I did. I hope to edit them soon so you can see how you did.

My polaroid pictures are coming out blank?

I assume they are coming out almost completely white. Here are some guesses based on my experience with 4x5 Polaroid film from decades ago. Things may have changed.

First guess: This type of film has small packets of chemicals that are popped open and spread by rollers in the camera. These chemicals develop the film. If the pinch roller's no longer squeeze tightly enough, the film will come out white. Try googling your camera name and rollers to see if others have this problem.

Second guess: Another possibility is the film was not stored properly or expired. Have you tried replacing the film?

Third guess: Not likely, because I expect this camera is fully automatic, but are you able to adjust shutter speed or aperture? The images may be over exposed if shutter speed is slow. Are there mode settings like A, T and M? If so, put the camera into A mode. When you press the button do you hear a fast and immediate click-click, or do you hear a click followed by another click shortly after?

Fujifilm instax mini 7s pictures coming out white

I have the same problem as you. Pictures are in black and photo cartridges already wasted 3. Today I opened my camera and not a spring tea that is attached to the lever capture modes (sunny, noblado etc) was detached. Because I remember when the camera is turned on (pulling the lens) capture modes to move too. So every time you take a photo you must manually set the capture mode, and it stopped working. I hope it is resolved by attaching the spring. You already solved?

I took a self portrait with my fuji instax mini 7s but when the film came out, it was just white. I waited a few more minutes but it still didn't have the picture i took. What's wrong?

It comes out white cause you just took the picture. It takes a few moments to "develop" the picture that will be on the card. If you don't see nothing maybe the lens was covered...but it most likely be black as in something was on the card and developed.

I put a fresh new pack of film into my Fuji film instax 210 camera but only used it to take two pictures. The next day when I tried to take a picture, it came out completely white. Why is that? It is very...

Completely white photos on an Instax, or any instant camera means the film has been exposed somehow. Check to be sure the film door is completely closed, and latched properly. If it is, it's possible, though unlikely, that your camera's shutter is stuck open. It'd be easy to check, simply look at the front of your camera into the lens, and see if you see any mechanical bits, now take a picture and see if you see any of them move - movement means working, no movement means not. If the entire camera back opens (I'm not sure if it does) you can also open it and do the same thing, looking to see if you see light through the camera when you're looking through the lens but not taking a picture - if you do the lense is stuck open. This, however, would require removing and wasting whatever film is remaining in it right now.

I just got the fujifilm instant mini 7 and all the pictures are coming out black, is there something wrong with it, or am I just doing something wrong?

Check the ISO setting and that the lens shutter is actually opening when you take a pic. Black is underexposed and often relates to the wrong ISO setting ( film speed) I know its digital but ISO works like the old ASA and sets the shutter speed in relation to the amount of light.
