    I don't know what or where the percussion screw is. Also there are no information lights illuminated when looking through the viewfinder. The camera has not been used for 6 years.Thank you in advance. PS When I first selected auto the shutter operated once only.

Try first removing the film and loading a new one, if the film is stuck or at the end shutter may not work.

Hi,

Initially, assuming a power problem, pls try to clean the battery contacts. In some instances, it may be necessary to scrape them clean or bend/stretch so as to provide more pressure to the batteries.

Otherwise, pls post back other indications, observed conditions.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Incidentally, I was made to understand that there is a shutter release lock that is built-in to the main switch, you may want to look into that as well.

    Or could you at least perform a battery test? ( set main switch to S or C and partially depress the shutter button). The shutter will not engage if the AF is not solid in an AF mode.

I would like to know if a 24mm Nikon f2.8 Ai Manual Focus Lens will work on a Nikon N75 SLR Camera


Yes and no. It will fit and you can take pictures with it. You'll have to focus manually, of course, and you won't get any exposure help from the camera's light meter. You'll have to use the camera in the Manual exposure mode, setting the shutter speed on the camera body and the aperture by turning the ring on the lens and, as I said earlier, without any help from the camera's light meter.

How do I change the shutter speed on a Nikon EM film SLR


The EM doesn't really have a manual shutter speed setting. It does have a Bulb setting for long exposures and a 1/90 second manual for flash, but otherwise the camera automatically sets the shutter speed to go with the currently selected aperture.

Normally you would set the aperture and let the camera set the shutter speed. You can adjust the shutter speed by pressing the exposure compensation button for +2 stops. You can also adjust the exposure by changing the ASA/ISO setting.

Does the minolta xg-a have to have batteries to use the view finder? if so, what kind of batteries does it take


The XG-A requires batteries, not just for the viewfinder, but also for the shutter. It uses two alkaline A-76 (or equivalent) or two silver-oxide EPX-76 (or equivalent).

If you need an owner's manual, you can download a PDF version from http://www.butkus.org/chinon/minolta.htm

How do you turn on a sigma SA-7n film camera??


I don't know about the SA-7, but the SA-5 doesn't have an on/off switch as such. Pressing the shutter button halfway activates the autofocus and turns on the light meter. The camera switches off after six seconds of inactivity to conserve batteries, though the shutter can still be released accidentally. Turning the mode dial to the "L" position will lock the shutter and prevent accidental release.

You can find a manual for the SA-5 at http://www.butkus.org/chinon/sigma.htm . It's not ideal, but it should help you get started.

My new cannon rebel isnt working, the lens will focus but the screen is black. cannot get the shutter to activate


Mirror mechanism is locked up and probably out o synch with the rest of the shutter cocking mechanism. sometimes there is enough power in battery to focus lens, but not enough to power the winder/shutter/miror mecansim- check the battery
