It really depends on how much you like the camera!

The cost of repairs can vary, but a high-street dealer can be quite expensive, over £100 is quite common, and if replacemnt parts are required this quicky becomes very expensive.

You may be able to find a less expensive repairer somewhere like eBay, but it may be less expensive to buy a used replacement from an internet vendor.

It's quite shocking how cheaply some very nice caneras can be bought for!

Make sure it comes with a warranty though. Three months is typical, and is usually long enough for you to properly test the replacement. If it does not break after three months of normal use, then it's likely to last a long time. (One's offered without a warranty may not even have been properly checked.)

Also make sure that the seller specialises in photographic gear, and is well established. It's quite easy to look real professional on a internet auction site right from the word go. So look for evidence that the seller has been doing this for a while and regularly, and check any scoring system the site provides.

As a final note. Don't go for the cheapest vendor. I sell and repair cameras professionally, and you can take my word for it that you cannot provide a proper level of after-sales support and sell good cameras for next to nothing. These things take time, and time as they say.....

No shutter action


Set the lens f/stop to the largest number such as f/22 (smallest diameter). Many cameras with automatic exposure must have the f/stop set to the largest number on the lens, or turn off auto focus do manual focus.

I purchased a Nikon N60 used. The film will not automatcally load therefore not shoot


Please follow these instructions: 1. Open the camera back 2. Pull the film leader across the red film index mark (red line) 3. Check to ensure film is properly positioned with no slack, then close camera back 4. Fully depress shutter release button to advance to frame 1. Check the rewind lever if it turns counter clockwise when you depress the shutter release button.
Keep on trying this procedure until you get it right. Most of the time, the error is in not pulling the film leader enough to reach the red film index mark.
If you're still having a problem with this, the next best option is to have the camera checked by a competent camera technician.

F EEwhen i put the camera on don`t shut


This means one of two things:-

1. You have not set the lens to it's smallest aperture before fitting it to the camera body; or...

2. The EE servo coupling post on the outer edge of the lens mounting flange on the body has broken off. This is a switch which senses when the lens is set to it's minimum aperture. Looking at the camera body, with the lens removed, it's at about the eight o' clock position on the outer edge of the body lens mounting flange.

1. is easily fixed:just fit the lens correctly. 2. Really needs a professional repair, but as you can get a used F60 (N60 in USA) for free these days (FreeCycle/Freegle) it's not worth doing: just fasten it permanently in the "activated" position. Do a bit of googling and you'll see what I mean.

I hope this has solved your problem, if so please rate my answer.

I have a Nikon N60. Can't take pictures outside


can you manually change your f-stop to faster shutting. When the shutter stays open longer, it will draw in to much light. If you have an option for only outside pics, then I would try that as well.

FE E error for the nikon N60


This is normal if you're using a non-CPU lens -- you'll have to shoot in Manual (M) mode.

If it is a CPU lens, try cleaning the contacts and reattaching. Give it a little wriggle to make sure the contacts are engaged.

I have a Nikon N60 35mm camera its displaying F3 3 in the viewfinder what does it mean and how do I fix it


It's not clear from your question that this is actually a problem as you haven't said what the display is doing to cause you problems actually using the camera.

What is certain is that it's supposed to display a F number in the viewfinder. Along the bottom of the display will be a number (shutter speed), an F number (aperture setting, when in auto or shutter priority modes this may not exactly match what's set on the lens), and moving bar + - scale too indicate over (+) or under (-) exposure.

If you really don't know what the F number is nor what it's for then you need to read both a good photography for beginners guide and also the camera manual. Explaining the relationship between shutter speeds, aperture settings and film speeds in any truly meaningful way here is beyond the limited scope of FixYa as whole books are devoted to the subject, but you only need a few pages and pictures from the available publications to get a good idea.

You can download a free user guide for your camera at the address below. It's for a Nikon F60, but it's identical to the your camera which was called the N60 in North America to distinguish it from unofficial imports.

F60/N60 in auto mode cannot focus lock


It's probably the lens.

The gears become worn an a little sloppy, and also sopmetimes a little stiff.
This makes them overshoot the correct focus and then they have to try again resulting in the hnting you describe.

There can be other problems, but this is the most likley. Try another lens and see if you get the same problem.

My N60 won't power down


On Nikon cameras the ON/OFF button is more of a safety-catch for the shutter that a power button. Does it correctly disable the shutter button when turned to OFF?

Will not operate in the autofocus mode


kmarcum,
Take the camera off auto focus,if the shutter fires and you can manually focus, then the lens must be repaired. Take the lens to a camera repair shop and get an estimate.

Err message in N60


If your lens is set to F/22 or the smallest available on your lens, this is not a user problem. Take it to your local camera repair shop ( usually $100 to $125 repair to phase or sequence switch ).
