Rubber Grip Has Developed "Sticky Spots"

I've stored my Nikon F65 in its camera bag for quite sometime now and recently when i opened the bag to check on it i discovered that the rubber pieces on the camera had become sticky. prior to storing my camera i made sure that it was carefully cleaned and dry. what could be the cause? and how do i solve it?

thanx in advance.

The best and cheapest way I have found is to use 91% isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol...put a little on a paper towel, cloth, or cotton swab and rub the stick stuff off. I would also suggest putting on rubber gloves to keep the black stuff off your hands. Have fun.

I tried a bunch of stuff and "Painter's Pal" 'No Mess Spray Gel' - "Goo Gone Brand"

"Contains surfactants, glycol ether, tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol and citrus extracts"

Applied a little bit to soft paper and gently rubbed sticky surfaces.

Seems to have worked rather well. Might have bleached the rubber a little bit.

--> Nota Bene: Dissolved writing on the rubber <--

In fact, seems to have removed ALL soft stuff. However, the Sony Camera is now usable. There is very little residue transferred to the paper.

The rest of the CCD-TR5 is slowly comming back to life...

Eyespy75,

heat, moisture,solvents and age will cause the material to become sticky. the like rubber material is easy to replace. it just peals off and the new material has glue ( covered with clear plastic ) already on it. try nikon parts i think the parts are still available.

I was given a Nikon F65 SLR camera and my friend had lost the instructions manual...the step by step instruction one.not the specifications part...I'm not able to download that page....


Odd this is the second Nikon F65 for me to write on in the last five minutes.

Here is a link to a film page about half way down there will be two links for the PDF file for the manual. Yes the man is looking for $3.00 and if you are generous you can pay him most don't

Can the pictures in Nikon F65 transferred in computer?And can the pictures in that camera uploaded in Facebook? PS:This is an OLD camera


When you get your film processed, you can request that they be put on a CD. The CD can then be read on a computer and you can do whatever you wish with the photos. For existing photos, you can also have the negatives scanned and put on a CD. If you only have prints, they can also be scanned but the quality will suffer.

When I get film processed from my Nikon 35mm SLRs, I ask for only the CD and no prints. This only costs me $2, and I can choose which pictures I want printed--after doing whatever photo editing I want.

Any camera store can do this for you, as can many department and electronic stores.

How to see the picture after it has been taken for nikon f65?


The F65 is a film camera. You must get the film processed before you can see any pictures. If you have the setup yourself, you can develop the film. Otherwise, take the film to a photo processing lab (any camera store and many department stores, drugstores, and supermarkets either have them or have access to one) and get it processed. If you're shooting negative film, you can get prints. If you're shooting slide film, you can get slides. Either way, you can also request a CD containing the digitized images.

Again, the F65 is a film camera. The camera can't show you the images it has taken.

Nikon N80 takes one shot, then needs abt 10 sec cooldown


If your batteries are fresh ( have seen flat new ones older stock) and are using alkalines then I would think you have a connector problem. Can you check and clean the connectiosn inside the grip and on the camera body. I've also seen dirty lens contacts and even a sticky shutter cause this. It's usually not serious just rather annoyng until you find it.

My camera wont focus properly


In that case, the AF system has failed.

Unfortunately, this now means that you F65 has just become an unrepairable spares donor. Your camera was a short-lived budget model and Nikon never gave it the spares support of more expensive models.

IF you can find the spare parts needed, they'll exceed the cost of replacing your camera, and that's even before you include labour costs.

It's not all bad news though: models like the F65 and F75 are simply of no value to Nikon enthusiasts so are available very cheaply. I recently got a boxed, mint, "used for just one holiday" F75 with the kit 28-100 lens for free on my local Freegle group (a UK offshoot of FreeCycle, where many of my other Nikons and Canons have come from). Used camera dealers tend to sell F65/F75 bodies for around £50-£60, and on auction sites they tend to go for anywhere between £5 to £30 unless there are competing idiot bidders. Last summer I also got a Nikon n8008s (F801s) on FreeCycle, it's a bit battered but works perfectly, so it's definitely worth registering with all of the groups within easy reach of you and regularly scanning the offers.

Display showing "E" and film is not getting forwaded


It sounds like the film transport motor is dead. If so, it needs a trip to repair shop.

be sure batteries are inserted correctly.

Loaded film blank


Chances are the film had quite a bit of curl to it (often a sign of old film) and it was not pulled over quite far enough during auto loading, or perhaps too far and it had too much slack that the take up reel never grabbed it to advance it thru. You're not the first one this has happened to as the auto load is not as reliable as the older style where you had to load the film leader through a slot in the take up reel.

annlane123,
Since you have been taking photos in one of the other modes, say shutter or aperture mode you may have changed the F-stop in the process, check to see that the ring is set back for auto mode by aligning the red numbers (ususally F-22) to the white dot on the lens, that way when the camera in auto needs more light the lens will open enough to allow it. Test it with the metering in the viewfinder you'll see it as you change to each number. Remember both the lens and camera are communicating with each other. Not allowing the shutter to release is kind of a safety.
