Nikon N70 film recognition problem

I loaded film into my camera and it usually recognizes the speed automatically and advances the film for the first shot. It isn't doing that this time. After the film was loaded, I had to press the button a couple of times and then it advanced, but it never recognized the speed. Any thoughts on what might be the problem...thanks.

Re: Nikon N70 film recognition problem

Check the little gold DX contacts inside the film chamber. If they are bent, try to straighten them (Carefully they can be brittle) If they are stright, try cleaning them with a VERY LITTLE amount of denatured alcohol. If all this fails to help, take it into Nikon.

My Nikon F80 won't load y film automatically, it has a FEE error on the screen but i don't know what that is??

The lens you are using has the aperture ring set to something the camera cannot use. Simply turn the aperture ring to the largest number, usually a 22 or 32. Lock that ring if there is a lock and the fee should be gone.

The error film loading message appears and I have reloaded the film several times and it will not advance. Help

sounds like the film advance motor died needs repairing at a qualified shop if you think the camera is worthy, since its old how much is it worth to you vs a new one

Nikon F100 does not advance film to start of roll,

Jim, it really sounds like one of threethings. Either will require a repair shop.
1. the film sensor is not recognizing film in the film chamber, or film across the back, therefore not telling the advance motor to advance film...
2. The film advance motor itself needs replaced.
3. The rear door latch switch needs replaced.
Since everything else seems to do OK, I doubt the main computer board is bad.

Problem with loading film in my Nikon F60.

Draw the film all the way to the receiving spool. There's an 'eye' inside the film compartment to check that the film is loaded. When the film is not correctly loaded the camera thinks it's empty and rewinds the film.

Can't load the film

Turn the camera on. Open the back. Insert film, pull it across to the red mark. Close the back.

Camera should load automatically.

Film is not loading automatically

That's not a "12" but halfway between 1 and 2, so it would pay you to have your camera aligned by a pro.

Loading the N8008 camera

1. Set the film speed manually or DX to do it automatically by holding down the ISO button and turning the command dial.

2. Slide the camera back lock releases toward each other to open the back.

3. Insert the film cartridge on the left.

4. Pull film leader over to the red index mark on the right.

5. Close the back, making sure there's no slack in the film, and the lock releases snapped close.

6. Lightly press the shutter button. The film icon will appear in the LCD panel.

7. Fully depress the shutter button to automatically advance film to frame 1.

Blank Film Developing

It likely did not catch when it was first loaded, and as such never advanced through the camera. Open the back of the camera, with no film in it, then set the shutter speed to 1, advance the film advance lever and take a shot. You should see the shutter curtains open and then close a second later. Then advance the film lever again and watch to see that the sprockets are turning. If they are, then the camera is exposing and the mechanics are working properly to advance the film. Chances are it was just loaded incorrectly.

Isn't recognizing there is film

I will offer a solution under the assumption, that you are not familiar with this camera. Please ensure the film is loaded correctly extending the film all the way across to the orange line located on the right side near the winding post. This ensures the film is positioned correctly and will feed onto the post. Also the film advancer may need to activated by releasing the shutter. Hope it helps. Good Luck!

Film doesn't develop

check your camer without film:

1). open the back, use different combinations of film speeds, shutter speeds and apartures. if you can see light coming in from the lens, no matter how little light and how fast.
2). check that film advances or not. if you camera detects film and loads automatically, insert any expired film cassette, or badly developed film and roll it back into cassette.
3). send it for service if either one or both gives you an answer of "N".
