I think this camera actually has a back that is a separate piece. It is removed by turning 2 "keys" on the bottom of the camera itself, then it will slide off. The operative word here is "think". It is an educated guess based on working in a camera store many, many years ago. good luck

Nikon N65 Won't Turn On , With NEW Batteries . This Camera Is NEW ! Please Help ''/

Nikon hasn't manufactured the N65 is several years now, so if you bought it it was either misrepresented as new, or possible new-old-stock (a never sold/used item, that's been sitting on the shelf for a number of years). I'd be willing to venture you probably ran into a disreputable seller.

Either way, open the battery compartment and look for corrosion in the compartment. If that's present clean it off with the eraser of a pencil and try again. If that doesn't work, contact Nikon service with the warranty information in your package. If it's a new item, it'll still be warrantied since the warranty won't begin until it's sold to a consumer.

If, however you find that the camera was sold 10 years ago and no longer under warranty, you'll probably want to either find a local reputable shop, buy another camera if yours turns out to be too expensive to repair (impossible to tell until someone looks at it to determine the issue), or if you don't have a local shop I'd recommend KEH Camera in Atlanta, GA for mail-order/internet dealers. They've been in business many years and are very reputable.

Have lighting strike symbol on camare n60

This lightning strike depending on where you are seeing it is either showing you the button to push for the internal flash to pop up or it's telling you that flash is required for the camera setting you have chosen. If the lightning strike is an icon on the camera body it will be beside a button that's for an internal flash. If you see this in the viewfinder or screen then the camera is letting you know that the scene is going to require flash.

My F100 will only fire in the self timer mode. Solution?

Check the selector in the front lower right of the camera. Move it to M then S, then C, then back to S. Next: you need to adjust the setting from self timer back to normal, press the mode button and check the icon select from self timer to normal shooting mode.

Nikon n65 will not take pictures

Not knowing if you are shooting in auto or have recently switched from manual to auto shooting you may have adjusted your f-stop on the lens, make sure you adjust the ring to align with the auto setting (the f-22 in red letters) with the dot on the lens) then the camera will be allowed to open for enough light to take the shot.

The quick winder not working

That camera has several rubber bumpers and gaskets in the mirror mechanism that have a tendency to turn into sticky gooey sludge causing the levers in the shutter and mirror mechanisms to get sluggish.

The latch that tells it to stop winding is not dropping into proper position when you wind the camera. Try holding the film advance lever all the way to the front when winding it to allow the latch to drop into place before letting the lever to return.

The only permanent solution is to completely disassemble the camera to clean out the old goop and replace them with newer neoprene fittings. My suggestion would be to find a replacement body since the repair is probably going to cost between $80 to $90 and you can probably find a good used body for less than that.

On the front right, near the bottom of the lens, there is a little switch with AF and M on it. Make sure it's switched to AF. M stands for manual and AF is Auto Focus. Then, on the top, there is a dial with pictures, the letters M A S P, and a picture of a camera with the word AUTO above it. Move it around until AUTO is pointing to the black mark next to it. You should hear it click into place. Once you've done all that, turn it on and your nikon should be on full auto mode. Have fun taking pictures, I hope this helped!
