Question about FUJIFILM Instax 210 Film Camera

1 Answer

I have a Fuji Instax 210. Now the polaroid picture won't come out from the top. I opened the back and cleaned the rolling part but it still doesn't work. What can I do to fix it? I don't know any place that can fix a Fuji Instax so I think I have to fix it myself.

The same thing happened to me. Make sure that the mechanism arm on the inside that pushes the picture up is connected with the metal piece on the right hand side. The two can come loose allowing the metal piece to not bring the arm with it when you take a picture. Also the roller could have fallen down a bit. From the inside, press the roller up (it will click when it is in the right spot). The roller should be even all the way across and pushed all the way to the top of the camera.
I hope this helps if you haven't been able to fix it already.
(When all else fails, try changing the batteries.)

    Teenyvators... you have just rescued my 210 from a likely resting place in the garbage. I was going to fiddle with it a little to see if I could fix it. The roller bit was exactly my issue, and so easy to fix. It's working again!

    Same thing happened with me. I'm trying to fix it myself but I can't seem to figure out what the roller is, or which is the arm that pushes the picture up :/ A little help, please?

    WOW, this just fixed my 210... Both things had happened. I had fixed the arm myself but didn't think to push on the roller. Imagine my face when I pushed up on it and heard the "click"... It works perfectly now! Thank you so much!

    My instal camera doesn't want to take pictures anymore. It seems like everything is working ok (lens, batteries are new, the side buttons). Even after putting in a new set of photos, there is a "-" sign on the screen, so it doesn't sensors the available photos I guess. Is this a related problem to what's been discussing here? If so, I actually don't know what the roller is?

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.

When i turn on my fuji polaroid cam, there is an "E" error message. I can't take any polaroid pictures with it altho the polaroid cam is loaded with film. Please help. Thanks

First, remove the remaining films from the camera. (while your camera is switched off) Second, press on both the shutter button and the power button at the same time. (to reset) Third, reload a new set of polaroid films into the camera.
Hope it helps!
