I just opened my Indesign doc, about 200+ pages, and in one specific area (4 pages) my images are not showing, but they are still linked. I tried relinking, but they still don't show. I tried exporting a PDF and they don't show. I don't want to have to replace them all. Suggestions?

No, the images are not outside the frame. Yesterday I exported a PDF of these pages and everything worked fine. Today I opened the file and I can't see the images. The image frame is there and the link symbol shows, but no visible image.

If a document is not behaving well then try 

File>Export 

Choose IDML

Open the IDML in InDesign
Save the file as a new InDesign file with a new name
See if the issue persists.

 

----------

Try resetting your preferences:
The easiest way to reset everything is to delete the InDesign preferences: as soon as InDesign starts to boot hold down Shift, Alt, Ctrl (and Apple/Cmd if working on a Macintosh). A dialog will appear asking to delete the InDesign Preferences, select 'Yes' on this dialog.

What happens if you click the link to the image location (the page number where the image is located) next to the image name in the Links panel?

What version of InDesign?

 

Expounding on what has already been offered: https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/kb/troubleshoot-file-issues.html

I would focus on Damaged Files and the link to Restoring All Preferences, which goes further that just resetting preferences with a keyboard shortcut.

Do the package of your indd. Is indd from a package still have this problem? (if yes - do relink to images and save it).

Remember, never say you can't do something in InDesign, it's always just a question of finding the right workaround to get the job done. © David Blatner
