1. Turn off the Mini 9 camera by pushing the power button
The first step in resetting your Instax Mini 9 is to turn off the camera. To do this, locate the power button on the side of the camera. It's usually a small round button with the power symbol on it. Press the button gently, and you should see the lens retract and the camera power down. Turning off the camera ensures it's safe to remove the batteries and prevents potential damage while resetting.
2. Remove the batteries from the battery compartment
After turning off your Instax Mini 9, it's time to remove the batteries. Locate the battery compartment door on the bottom of the camera. Slide the door open to reveal the battery slots. Carefully remove the batteries, paying attention to their orientation. Removing the batteries is a crucial step in resetting, as it cuts power to the camera's internal components, allowing it to reset.
3. Wait for about 10-15 seconds to let the camera reset
Now that the batteries are removed, it's time to give your Instax Mini 9 a little break. Wait for about 10-15 seconds before proceeding. This pause allows the camera to discharge any residual power and clear its memory fully. This short waiting period is essential for the resetting process to be effective and ensure your camera's smooth operation after resetting.
4. Reinsert the batteries and turn the camera back on
After waiting for 10-15 seconds, it's time to reinsert the batteries. Ensure that you place them back in the correct orientation, as indicated by the polarity symbols inside the battery compartment. Once the batteries are correctly reinserted, close the battery compartment door securely. Now, turn the camera back on by pressing the power button. Your Instax Mini 9 should be reset and functioning as expected. If any issues persist, consider contacting Fujifilm customer support for further assistance.
