Question about Nikon F60 35mm SLR Camera
My Nikon F60 has started to exhibit an intemittent problem. After firing the shutter the "Err" message appears. Sometimes associated with the "film spool image ",indicating an incorrectly loaded film.(Which is not the case). Sometime just the "Err" message, e.g this can happen in operating the camera with or without a film loaded. The effect is several unexposed framem on a roll of film. Batteries are sound. Film DX contacts clean. All body parts seem to be closed correctly etc. Lenses correctly set, and contact clean. The camera has been to an approved repairer who serviced and corrected any faults and test checked the camera opration. A couple of several test films were run though without the error showning up. Camera taken out for se, as a spare, on holday .... " err message" back again. Frustrating ... all my other Nikons have worked OK for years, this lightweight simple camera, however, seems to have a mind of its own.
Jim, it really sounds like one of threethings. Either will require a repair shop.
1. the film sensor is not recognizing film in the film chamber, or film across the back, therefore not telling the advance motor to advance film...
2. The film advance motor itself needs replaced.
3. The rear door latch switch needs replaced.
Since everything else seems to do OK, I doubt the main computer board is bad.
