Question about Nikon N65 35mm SLR Camera

Nikon Pop-Up Flash stuck

The autoflash pop-up on my Nikon N65 is not releasing the flash unless the camera is on its side.

I am guessing the hinge may need lubrication. Is there a safe way to do this and a recommended lubrication

I would not lubricate anything on a camera if you are not a camera repair man. The last thing you want is liquids working there way into places they don't belong.

It sounds to me like you may have a worn part. If someone advises you do do any disassemble to make the repair, don't. Take it to a camera repair man. I know of what I speak! In the 60's, a screw fell out one of my lenses for my Nikon F Photomic. To replace the screw, I had to first remove another part. By the time I finished, the whole lens was in pieces on the table. It cost over $150 to fix (1965 dollars). The repair man told me that if I had left things alone and brought the assembled lens and screw in, it would have cost $10 for the repair.

How can i turn the flash off of my nikon n65 camera?


In the PSAM modes the flash won't pop up on its own. In the AUTO and vari-program modes, you can set the flash mode by turning the command dial while pressing the flash sync mode button (marked with a lightning bolt symbol). Select Flash Cancel (lightning bolt in a circle with a slash through it).

The batteries are dead on my N65, but when I pushed the button that pops the flash up, nothing happened. Wondering if that is because of the batteries or if the flash is stuck/broke?


Battery is needed to unlock the catch then the internal flash will pop up. These cameras are programed to automatically pop up in certain modes so there is a little electric switch used not battery no switch. Don't leave the dead battery in the camera or you'll end up with more problems then just replacing the batteries.

My Nikon N65 flash leaves a dark spot on all my photos


tlguthrie,
I love that camera. There are several possiblities, If you are using the pop up built-in flash with a telephoto lens or a lens hood you'll get a shadow in your photos ususally at the bottom of landscape oriented shots. If you are using a flash unit attached it may have something interfering with the strobe possibly or it is turned. We have the same camera and have had the shadow issue in the past. The pop up just won't work if something is wrong with the "bulb" the only other thing is that is isn't going all the way up, check that also.

N65 built-in flash not working


Yes, you can. Unfortunately Nikon is so backed up with repairs, your camera will probably take a few months to get it back and cost you more than you want to spend. The labor is what is so much. Just like fixing your car a shop. Your camera probably has a flash sensor that has worn out or needs to be re-callibrated is all. I have a friend who fixes cameras.

Pop up flash will not stay open when you push the release button.


The post that holds the spring commonly breaks off. The top has to be removed to replace it - a $60 repair by an independent repair shop. I wouldn't recommend removing the top yourself unless you know how to discharge the 300Volt capacitor.

You might not have your lens set to the minimum aperture setting (the largest number) if it is a non-G lens.

Lens stuck on camera in wrong position


It may need professional help to remove it safely. If you try too hard to remove it yourself, either the aperture arm on the lens and/or the camera will get bent or damaged.

Error "Err05" keeps initiating preventing flash operating


There are two versions of this problem: 1. The flash does not pop-up. 2. The flash does pop-up.

Here’s the fix to the err05 msg when the flash does pop-up. This will work on the XTi and perhaps on similar Canon cameras:

The pop-up flash has two legs. Look at the pivot point of the right leg (”right” when looking into the lens). Just in front of the pivot is a very small spring-load pin on the “roof” of the camera body.
This pin is the sensor that tells the camera the state of the flash. The pin is pushed down when the pop-up flash is closed and is suppose to quickly spring up when the flash is opened. Problem is, the pin sometimes gets dirty and drags. When it is slow to spring up … you get the err05 message.

Fix: Take a small jeweler’s screwdriver and dip the tip in isopropyl alcohol. (Don’t use any other solvent unless it’s designed for cleaning electronic parts!) Then touch the screwdriver tip to the pin. Do this several times until the pin area is nicely wet. Then push the pin up and down until it is able to spring up quickly.

Enjoy.

Flash


You can't take off the attached flash. The camera body flash should not fire when you have a flash attached to the hotshoe on the camera. I don't know what kind of flash you are using, since you never said but I use Sunpak and Metz flashes. You can see if your flash is compatible with the N-65. If not, then you should look for one that is. Ritz sells Quantary flash units that have modules for Nikon cameras. They are great flashes for the money.
