Question about Photography
I didn't use my f100 for about 3 years.
i have humidity or moisture on the inner side of the viewfinder and pentaprism of my nikon f100 .it is visible from the viewfinder and from the body - where the focus screens can be changed. i already screwed off the first lens of the viewfinder but it seems to be on the inner side.
please tell me how to open it .e.g. what are the screws i need to take off, what part to pull ..
Thanks for your email. In the meantime I learned my problems were not uncommon with early production F100s; the culprit is the switching circuitry under the film advance mode dial, which has to be replaced. Essex Camera of Carlstadt, NJ, will do the repair, including general service, at a cost of $ 150. Sincerely,

Try re-setting the camera? On the D40 it is 'Menu' scroll down one to Custom Setting Menu (a pencil) and click reset 'ok' yes 'ok' this worked for me.

There is a bulletin (E31529192) that describes your exact problem and recommends replacing the screws with new different screws to prevent this from happening again. The front section around the lens assembly is only held by 3 screws so access isn't a big deal, just be careful if you try this because there is a cable connected to the microphone that is easy to damage. The new screws are part number 3-056-559-01. Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

I had the same problem. My issue was with all my lenses. I solved it by going to the menu and selecting the custom setting menu (pencil icon). Then from the right menu select the AE-L/AF-L and press OK. Then make sure it is set on AE/AF Lock. Presto...all my lenses worked on auto-focus.
