When I get my prints developed from my Fisheye 2 camera, all the images are to one side. The fisheye image has a chunk missing from it and appears like a 3/4 circle, with about 1/4 of the print just...
Check the negatives: you should clearly see that the images are complete, although where they've been cut into strips it's possible that the cut may have gone through an image. If there are very few complete circular images, then you have a camera problem and problems are not at all rare on Lomo cameras which are in general of absolutely dreadful quality.
if you can eliminate the camera as the cause, then the fault is with the photographic processing service. The process is mostly automated, and the machine which makes the prints from the negatives expects to find nice regular rectangular images with neat straight unexposed lines between them. Your FishEye 2 produces circular images instead with wide hourglass-shaped unexposed partitions and so it's confused the machine.
If you've used an ultra-budget postal processing service then they might agree to reprint for you but will usually (and entirely fairly) point to a clause along the lines of "at these prices, this service is for regular 35mm prints only". In future always use local processing shops and tell them clearly what to expect as they can manually intervene and ensure that the prints come out correctly.
This should solve your problem, if so please rate my answer.
