Question about Nikon N75 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Cameria will not turn on

Haven't used my camera in a year, it is still in perfect condition. Needed to use it tomorrow, but I saw nothing on the LED screen when I rotated the switch to "ON." I've just placed in 2 new CR 2 batteries, and still no luck.

The only thing different that I've noticed is that the viewfinder isn't as clear. It seems a bit obscured/tinted.

I read the instruction manual and there is a warning that mold can develop if not stored properly. Although I don't see any moisture, nor any leaked battery acid. And I am not in a humid environment.

Any help is appreciated.

If it has been stood for a long time, more than 6 months without use, the organic capacitors leak rendering the boards no longer working.

SOURCE: Battery EXTREMELY Exhausted

As the other person says Nimh rechargable batteries are the best....Also somewhere in the menu system you will find that you need to define which type of battery you are using, this may be the cause...Nikon UK have an excellent after care team if all else fails.

SOURCE: camera wont turn on even with new batteries.

I have the same problem as well. I have had my camera for a bout 2 years. The first time this happened was in March 2007. We had been using regular AA batteries, then we decided to go lithium and bamm! The camera started working. I was elited. Then in the beginning of December 2007, it let me take one last picture and then it wouldn't come on again. The lithiums wouldn't even work. We recently took it to a camera shop and they suggested the same as the other posts. I think it would be cheaper just to buy another camera and I think there should be a recall on this camera, if there are so many other customers having the same issue. I really did enjoy it while it lasted, though.

SOURCE: LCD and viewfinder malfunction

There is a documented malfunction with this camera, and Nikon has issued a service advisory and form you can send in with the camera so they fix it. Click on the following link, send in the camera with the form, and Nikon should fix it for free (assuming the problem is the one documented by Nikon) . I had to do it about a year ago, and the same thing just happened with my brother's camera.

SOURCE: Battery Problem

These cameras have a internal battery that holds data for the camera to keep its settings. These batteries can be replaced but the camera has to be disassimboled to change it they should be able to be changed at a local camera shop pretty cheap.

Hey mrskee,
The first suggestion I would make is to make sure your pulling the film leader out far enough, and the film canister is sitting in place properly. If this doesn't work I would examine the sprocket holes in the film leader and make sure they are not ripped if they are you should pull the film out until they are no longer ripped and then try loading the film again. I hope this helps.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

How to disassemble a Makinon mc zoom lens

first off, you need special tools to get at the inner elements of a zoom lens - i've been working on lenses for 20 years, and i still don't have every tool needed sometimes :-)

second, makinon lenses are not really worth anything, even if they are in perfect condition - my advice is to buy a better zoom used that is in perfect condition already, since you would have spent that money in tools to try and clean this one, and everyone screws up the first lens they ever try to take apart...

some good lens brand names are sigma, tamron, kiron or any with the same camera name as your camera (canon, nikon, etc)

stick with japan made optics - can't go wrong usually.

good luck...

First off, make sure that you're using good quality batteries, and not generic alkaline. Rechargeable NiMH are best. Next possibility is that not all of the batteries are making contact in the case. Make sure that the terminals at the bottom of the battery case haven't been bent low. If any of the batteries sit lower in the case than the others, try bending its bottom terminal up just a little bit so that it sits a little higher in the case, possibly improving its contact.

It is likely that the flex cable that attaches your screen to the main camera is bad.
Try flipping the screen against the side of the camera and see if that makes it work, if not then a repair is probably needed.

Hi, I have new laptop and when I conect it with Fe280 Olymous nothing happen

Did you download the operating disk or online operating program for your camera? After that the icon for that programs will be in all programs or in a desktop icon. Click on it and open it and then turn the camera on in the reveiw mode. the display on the carera will ask what you would like to do and the click on it on the cameria and away it'll go. If theses alot of stuff on the cameria it might take quite a while for it to download the cameria onto the computer

Memory card locked

Use the camera to try to format the card. If this doesn't work use a computer to format the card. efore the camera can use the card, format the card in the camera. If this doesn't work, gently slide the lock back and forth several times and try this again. If this doesn't work, see if your friend can format it in his camera. If he can, then try formating it in your camera. At some point it will either work or it is compromised (toast).

Camera self- diagnostic doesn't work

I had this exact problem when I had not used my camera for some time. For me the solution was to take out the flash card, and turn on the camera while pressing the flash button. This allowed me to run the self diagnostic test (which were ok by the way), and then after turning the camera off and on again it worked!

I've had my dsc w50 for about 2.5yrs and its just started the same milarky! Go to menu, set up 1 and re-initialise, it cleared for me then came back again. Went through the same process just now and error has gone for time being, although I think the flash is on its way to heaven. Some pictures are dark and others completely white out!!

Taking it in to the sony shop tomorrow to see if they can lend any advice - I hope it doesn't mean a new camera as I've not over used it....

Let me know how you get on
