If you undo the battery cap and pull it out , then hold it under a bright light you will see a picture of the batteries with their orientation depicted on the side of the plastic sleeves that will hold the batteries. Look for the shape of the batteries and make sure you load them in that same orientation.

Once loaded, remember that you need to pull the advance level back about 20 degrees to activate the power and the light meter.

Camera doesn't turn on


Try to clean the corrosion off the battery contacts. If not give it to Nikon they may be a little expensive but they will restore the camera to it's original condition.

Shutter release button on my F3 is stuck (locked) and shutter speed is locked at 1/60. Works fine when camera is attached to a motor drive, but not otherwise.


Hi,
When the batteries in an F3 die, though the film can still be advanced, the photographer is limited to a single mechanical shutter speed of approximately 1/60 second. It is tripped by a secondary fully mechanical shutter release. Works fine when camera is attached to a motor drive because it uses the drivers power...Pls replace the batteries as one of the following is okay.....
  • Battery: Choice of one 3V lithium battery CR-1/3N type,,
  • two 1.55V silver-oxide batteries SR-44 type, or
  • two 1.5V alkaline batteries LR-44 type
Hope this helps!
Take care and please

Im asking this for my niece, she just put the batteries in her camera which is a Nikon 35 mm film camera and all its doing is flashing SE and other error codes


You need to be more specific.
- What model of Nikon 35mm film camera is it?
- what "other error codes" do you see besides "SE"?

Nikon f3 hp light meter wont work


I'm interested in this as well. Just installed fresh batteries, light meter says 1/80 in all shutter settings faster than 1/60 (otherwise it shows the correct setting). Since 1/80 is the flash sync speed, it may be that the camera thinks there's a flash attached. But it is not...
Strange thing is that one time (I tried a couple of times today) the light meter worked correctly; it showed other timings and they changed as I turned the aperture ring...

First thing to check....how old is your battery? First replace the battery, then go from there.

New battery,still no power...


I used to work in a camera store and was confronted with this problem often. Try using an ink eraser to clean the contacts in the camera. Use an old style ink pen with one of those white erasers on the end. Easier to insert in the battery cavity.

Have you change with a new battery?

Or check the battery with a DVM(digital volt meter).

Or get some batteries and connect in series to equal to that voltage and use two wire leads. One lead to -negative side of the battery, other lead to +positive. Now, -neg to neg of camera and +pos to pos of camera.

You now have power to the camera to test. This will save money rather than buying the camera's battery for testing. AA, C or D will work, just look on the camera's battery to see the right voltage.

Examples: with two batteries (1.5VDC + 1.5VDC = 3..0VDC). So -(negative) of one battery to + (positive) of the second battery with solder.

-(-neg, battery, pos+) solder to -(neg, 2nd battery, pos+)+

left side , use black wire on -(Neg) and solder
right side, use red wire on +(Pos) and solder.

Now you have two leads, use those to connect to camera.

Do you get data from viewfinder?
