    I just removed the bottom of the camera and dicovered that the previous owner had left batteries in and they leaked. Looks somewhat corroded inside. I might get back to this at some time but I just wanted to let you know that I might have solved the problem.

    Thanks,

    After looking around the motor drive gears I see some that are corroded and frozen. I managed to free up some but not all. I tried to remove the complete motor assembly but it was not free even after the screws were removed. It looks like I might be over my head with this so I think I should stop at this point. Any suggestions?

    I hope I did not cause a problem by rating the solution as inappropriate. What I meant was that since I was only explaining what I had done and had not received any solutions from this board, I thought that rating help I received as an inappropriate question, considering the circumstances. I was not rating any solutions offered since I had not received any. Sorry for any confusion.

As I stated in a second posting, I found that the previous owner had left leaky batteries in the camera. when I removed the bottom cover I found some corrosion on the bottom of the motor gear assembly.I' m thinking of trying to remove the motor assembly and see if it's free. What led me to the motor was the fact that when I tried to load film and it did not wind I set the camera down for about 5 to 10 minutes. when I came back and picked up the camera, I noticed that the motor drive battery area was very warm. This led me to remove the bottom of the camera. Seeing the rust on the gears makes me think some might be stuck. If that's the case, I'm going to try and see if I can free them and go from there.

Is there a manual rewind on nikon n65?


If by manual you mean turning a crank to rewind the film, no. If you mean to do it at a point other than the end of the roll, yes.

To rewind film mid-roll, press the two film rewind buttons simultaneously for approximately one second. The film will then rewind and the frame counter will count backward. The film is completely rewound when the E appears in place of the frame number.

The two film rewind buttons are marked with a red film canister symbol with left-pointing arrows. One is the exposure compensation button next to the control panel, the other is the self-timer button next to the mode dial.

The Film advance lever wont move, the shutter button does nothing(i can push it down but nothing happens), and the button on the bottom is stuck in. In both cases this happened when there we no film in the...


Okay this is completely on memory. With the button on the bottom pushed in the camera is waiting for your to rewind the film back into the canister after this is done lift the wheel (not the crank it can break) the wheel is just below the crank and the back of the camera will open so you can take the film out. Reload a fresh roll close the door and advance to the first frame you are back in business again.

Canon AE-1 won't rewind film without tearing it up.


misstigeress,
is the film being ripped along the sprocket holes? if so, the rewind button is not unlocking the drive sprocket. with film removed open the film door and push the rewind button in, the drive sprocket should turn freely. now charge the shutter with the advance lever. the rewind button should pop out and the drive sprocket should not turn freely.
if the sprocket did not turn freely with button pushed in, the camera needs repaired. there are no new parts for this model canon so any parts needed will be good used.

Big problem


The only thing i can suggest is pushing the film rewind button on the bottom of the camera body. crank the film back in to the canister and drop a new roll in. Ihave experianced this problem once or twice when I rolled canisters from bulk film and it would get jammed.

Good luck

Nikon N5005 - No Shutter Release


The lens aperure ring must be set to the highest number, ( IE, smallest aperture, f22,f32 ) for the camera to work in full auto. Also, with the ASA set to DX, the camera will not release without film.
