It depends on the nature of the damage. What are the symptoms? For example, does it fail to zoom in and out, does it fail to focus properly, do you see something out of the ordinary when you look through the viewfinder? Have you taken some test pictures? If so, what did the photos look like. If you can give me the specifics, I can probably advise you correctly.

I have the aperture at the lowest number but when I look into the viewfinder everything is dark and when I turn the aperture to lighten up the viewfinder it gives the fee


It sounds like the mechanical lever in your camera that normally couples the aperture to the camera to lock it to the widest opening for focusing is locked into the fully closed position, or that the electronics are not allowing the lens to open to fully open, depending on the type of lense being used.

Also, it could be an issue with the lense.

The simple way to test this will be to remove the lense, and to rotate the aperture ring while looking through the lense. If you see the aperture getting larger/smaller the lense aperture is fine. If it is not - the lense is damaged and needs to be replaced, or at best serviced. This can be done through Nikon, a local shop if you have one, or through online shops, I'd recommend KEH Camera in Atlanta if you have to go that way.

To test the camera side, if the lense appears to be working is also simple for the mechanical lever. With the lense removed, hold the camera in front of you looking into the lense mount. On the left side, you should see a small lever like piece. With your finger, see if this piece will move downward - it is spring loaded and should smoothly go down and pop back up. If it doesn't go down, or doesn't spring right back up, then the issue is on the camera mechanical side.

If both of those check fine, you may try a manual focus Nikon mount lense if you have access to one - to eliminate the camera electronics from being an issue, and the lense from being an issue as if this lense doesn't work, it's a mechanical issue. If you have access to another AF lense you know is working, and it doesn't work on your camera, you've narrowed it down to either the mechanical lever, or the electronics.

Most likely culprit is the lense itself.

HOW TO REMOVE FUNGES IN LENCESS.


Fungus is difficult, if not impossible, to remove from lenses. It'd require total disassembly of the lense by an experienced tech, cleaning, cleaning of the barrel, possible re-grinding of the element cleaned, re-cementing of the elements, re-aligning of the elements, etc. It's a time consuming, demanding, and technially requiring job, as well as a very expensive job. Unless it's a VERY rare and expensive lense, it's pointless to undertake. Fungus does not, or 99% of the time doesn't, form on the outer lens surface (though it appears that's where it is), it's actually inside the lense.

I recently dropped my Pentax K1000....oops! The only damage I noticed was a small dent in the metal side of the lens....hardly even noticeable. But now, the focus isn't working, and the light meter doesn't...


Unfortunately, this is a serious problem.

If the focus ring is not working then there is serious damage inside the lens. This cannot be repaired easily and must be taken in for repair.

As for the light meter, this is slightly more worrying as it is damage inside the body. It could be something as simple as the battery contact. But it could also be somehting more serious.

I would recommend taking it for repair.

If repair turns out to be too expensive I suggest you have a look on ebay. Pentax cameras are available with a wide range of prices and so are compatible lenses. A good upgrade would be a Pentax MX or even an LX if you can afford it. The ME super is also an excellent model if you want soemthing simpler.

I see some hair inside the lenss when i look thru the view finder


It's very unlikely to get hair inside the lense. You probably see the hair on the reflex mirror of your camera. Remove the lense, Check inside the camera body for any dirt, dust, hair etc. Take a blower-brush (you can get one from the nearest camera dealer) and gently blow-brush away any particles from the mirror and the cavity. DO NOT use any force and don't touch the curtain shutter as it can easily be damaged. Don't touch the insides of the camera with your fingers, since the grease from the fingertips attract dust. Replace the lense. The hair should be gone now.

Olympus OM1 part fell out of the camera and I don't know where it goes.


That is the focusing screen to your Olympus. The tab you see goes to the right, as in the shiny side of the screen points down toward the mirror. The tab is the handle ( so to speak) for the screen. grab it only there as you can damage the rest very easily.

Fresnal lense


What kind of camera? Some camera's have removable fresnel lens held on by a spring loaded frame. Other camera's must be disassembled to replace the lens. There is no way to repair a damaged fresnel lens.
Pentax K1000 must be disassembled.

Fresnal lense


Hi-- first blow off any loose dust/dirt with blower and then you can use any rapidly evaporating cleaning solution ( window cleaning solution with amonia is OK ) to clean both sides. Do not use acetone ! ( will attack plastic ) . Benzine is also unsutable . Do not touch with fingers : remove with tweeezers and insert back with tweezers.
