Question about Photography
I have an instal mini 8 camera and it will no longer take pictures. When i turn it on, it doesn't make the noise it normally does and all the lights on the front and the one on the back come on. The problem occurred after I put a new thing of film in it. I took one picture but the blank discardable slide never came out. I tried to take another picture and the camera wouldn't let me. How can I fix my camera?
Try a different pack of film. Sounds like the one you have is jammed -- possibly caused by moisture condensation.

The blinking zero would indicate that the film has not loaded but the cartridge is in place. The camera won't do anything when this occurs. Try opening the film door and load the roll again

Camera might be damaged because of the fall, suggest to consult the Authorized Dealer near you (-see above link), or send it back to the store where you purchase it as it may be still part of the warranty.

If your film was TOTALLY blank then it's been bleached due to a processing error. By totally blank, I mean that there are no frame numbers or other film markings on your blank film. Otherwise, you simply have an unexposed film.
First, operate the camera with the camera back open, hold the camera up to a bright light and operate the camera as you look into the back of the lens. If you see a brief bit of light coming through as you operate the shutter then the shutter is admitting light into the camera and so you should have got some kind of an image unless you failed to correctly load the film (very common).
Unfortunately, there's no way to tell unless you try another roll of film. Once the film is loaded, turn the rewind crank gently to take up slack film and take a few pictures; each time you advance the film the rewind crank should turn a little. If it doesn't then the film has not been correctly loaded as the film leader has not engaged onto the take-up spool. If so, open the camera and re-engage the film. If it clearly has engaged, then the take-up spool is failing to rotate when the film is advanced: try taking a few shots and winding on the film with the back open. If the film is not advancing then you have a faulty Lomo. This is extremely common as it is a plastic toy camera with atrocious build quality and materials and is the FishEye is only designed for paltry ten rolls of film lifespan.
A final check for film which has not advanced through the camera is if the rewind is extremely short when the film has finished.

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.

SOURCE: what does the E mean
If you go to http://www.pentaximaging.com/support/manuals-and-literature/ you can find the manual for your camera. From my experience the E on a Pentax camera means the film isn't loaded properly. Hope this helps.
