Remove bottom cover and locate the 6v 220 microF capacitor and replace . The capacitors that go into these models start leaking after 10 years.

How doI set up f11 on this camera

Do you mean set the aperture at f/11?

If you want the camera to set the shutter speed for proper exposure, turn the mode dial to the A position for Aperture Priority. Press the +/- button to display the shutter speed and aperture. Press cursor-up/down to change the aperture and the camera will change the shutter speed to give the proper exposure.

If you want to set the shutter speed and aperture yourself, turn the mode dial to M for Manual. Press the +/- button. Press cursor-up/down to set the shutter speed, cursor-left/right to set the aperture.

Full details are in the Shooting Mode section of the manual.

I bought a second hand Mamiya 645 Af but as soon as I load a film it shows a error message ERR 01 .... what is that ?

From the manual:
"If the error display is not canceled when the shutter release button is pressed again, insert the Dark slide, half-press the shutter release button while pressing the roll film holder's manual film advance button to wind up the film, then contact your nearest Mamiya agent or service center."

I have a minolta x-300s film camera, the diaphragm control lever ( the lever at the bottom when the lense is removed that controls the mirror) is stuck to the left (meaning the mirror is up or away) when i...

Try this before spending money on anything:
Open the camera front and back: ie, take off the lens, open the back door.
With clean hands, put fingers in from both front and back.
VERY GENTLY slide the shutter curtain to the side, as it would do if the shutter release was working.

In my case, when I let go of the curtain, the whole situation resolved itself, the mirror went back up into position and the winder and release both started working again.

Mirror locked up on Nikon F75

Try pressing and releasing the shutter button. If that doesn't do anything, then turn the camera off and on and press and release the shutter button. If that still doesn't do anything, then turn the camera off, remove and reinsert the batteries (or a fresh set, if readily available), turn the camera on, and press and release the shutter button.

I ran across a Nikon N80 last week which hadn't been used for many moons. I tried the shutter and the mirror promptly locked up. It took about half a dozen tries, but the mirror eventually shook loose or whatever, and the camera now works perfectly.

If the above procedure doesn't do it, then you may have to take it in to a good camera shop for a CLA (clean-lubricate-adjust), the camera equivalent of an automobile tune-up.

Cable releases will not operate shutter of Pentax A3

Take one of the cable releases and press the thumb pad and extend the release probe. Lock the release in the fully extended position. Try inserting the probe into the shutter release hole and see if it works. If not then try using a thick needle from the head end and see if the release actually works on the camera. If it does then measure the depth that the needle goes to in order to work the shutter and compare to the exposed length of the release cable. You may find that it is not long enough although I would have thought unlikely.

Mamiya RZ 67 lens is stuck on body

This is likely because the shutter has not been cocked all the way. Return the lens to the fully locked position and advance the film with the lever all the way down to reset the shutter. If it still doesn't work, move the lever to M for multiple exposure, make sure the back is aligned and trip the shutter release. Then fully **** the shutter again by pressing the advance lever down fully and again until it is reset. Then try to remove the lens again.

Shutter stopped working

If the metering lights go out when you press the shutter release fully down, then the camera needs the shutter capacitors replaced. If they stay on, it could be the release magnets on the shutter unit itself, or worse.

Orange Warning Light

I recently had a similar problem and found the answer to be the shutter release on the lens itself.

When the using the shutter release, (mirror up feature), on the lens the shutter release, screw in portion, in the lens will actually will pop out to accomidate for the cable release.

There will be a small red circle around the base of the area where the cable release would screw into.

Try pushing that back in. Worked for me.

Good luck,
