回答“InstaX mini 8 won't take pictures and all orange lights are on”Probably the batteries.. I encountered the same problem. All 4 orange lights flashing on the front and the red one next to the viewfinder was blinking. i replaced the 1.5V AA batteries with new ones (Panasonic), that did not solve the issue.. Other batteries (Phillips) solved the issue. A bit of investigation lead to this: use ALKALINE batteries, LR-6 AA’s specifically. The not working replacement batteries are R6-AA’s. The instax machine specifically mentions the LR-6’s inside the battery slot, so it knows that it is picky ;-) If you ended up on this page because of the issue’s posted by the OP, this might be your solution!
