SOURCE: I have just loaded a

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

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

How are you connecting the camera? Is it a cable that came with the camera? Can you put the media card in a multi-reader and DL the pics?

SOURCE: the display screen appears pink before taking photos and films and after taking the photo the image captured is just white.

Is the camera still in automatic? (green camera logo) Or is it in scene, night shot?
If you put it to automatic, and it won't change anything, I'm afraid your camera is defect. Contact a certified Fuji repair centre, but before you send it in for repair, ask what it will cost you. because camera's are becoming cheaper and cheaper. Don't pay more for a repair than you would pay for a new camera.

How can I print only black and white

If you're printing the photos yourself and it's film then you have to use black and white film, chemicals and paper. Otherwise, shoot black and white film and send it to a photo lab. If you're talking digital then you're in the wrong catagory here. This is film cameras only.

Head problems: white line printed on the photo


I think (like a roller or a thread or wire) of printer is touching the paper. Check head get in the way; try running a thread clean properly and get a print.

Prints have a thin white line across all the images printed. Everything else works and prints are ok outside of the thin white line running horizontal across the 5x7 prints.

  • Thermal head — generates heat; prints on paper
  • Platen — a rubber roller that feeds paper
  • Spring — applies pressure to the thermal head, causing it to contact the thermo-sensitive paper
  • Controller boards — for controlling the mechanism
I think that you may need to replace your thermal head, A line means there is a place that the head can not head or it cannot recieve data

White Line on Card

unfortunatly is sounds like a "print head" type of problem. By printhead I am refering to the assembly that causes the film to transfer to the card. I would suggest creating a card project that has a full photo as the background. This will show you if the streak runs the length of the card. It could just be dirt or an obstruction in the card path. Try the alcohol cleaning cards. Dissassembly of this printer is a crap shoot. I have done it once. It is one of those things that is best left to someone good at printers or best by someone experienced on these. if all else fails call a dealer like Datacard and ask about depot repair.
