Question about Nikon N55 35mm SLR Camera
I have brand new batteries, new film, but my camera wont power up. More confusing, I can put in a new set of batteries, take one roll of film and then the camera dies yet again, someone help!!

the only thing that I could think of when I read your situation is, that you might not be using a DX coated films. see, the camera reads the bar code on the film and maybe it is not the same program. check the camear manual and make sure you are using the same kind of the suggested film in the manual. good luck

SOURCE: nikon n75 problem loading film
I have (had) the same problem. I came onto this site to find out what I can do to fix it. It didn't help. I got pissed and almost threw the camera away. So I decided to get a little rough with the camera, (i normally wouldn't do this but i was going to throw it away).
I loaded the film like normal but before I closed the back I manually wound the film around the opposite spool. I guess I fooled the camera into thinking it had already wound the film.
When I closed the back of the camera everything worked fine.
I then snapped off the pics the camera said were left.
After this first role, I loaded the next role like normal. The camera worked like a charm!
By the way...the mirror dropped back down when I manually wound the film around the spool.
I hope this works...if it doesn't make any sense feel free to email me with any questions..

No, it is not the battery. My guess is that the film leader did not stay in the take-up spool and is now bunched up around it. Try rewinding the film carefully as you normally would but remember that you are only rewinding a small portion of the length. You can even just open the film door and start over. You will only loose 3 or 4 frames on the roll.

SOURCE: problem in camera or film roll??
It is possible that each frame would have image data imprinted without and image being exposed. This could be caused by the shutter not opening while the camera still exposing the film internally with the image data recorded. It is unlikely that this bad film since the emulsion covers the entire surface of the film and if it were bad the image data would not be recorded either. Another cause of this but very unlikely is every frame was somehow extremely underexposed. This could happen if the camera is set to manual and the light level is low and the shutter speed is set to a fast speed and the aperture is set to a very small aperture. I hope this helps!
Go Ahead. Use Us.

SOURCE: Loaded film blank
Chances are the film had quite a bit of curl to it (often a sign of old film) and it was not pulled over quite far enough during auto loading, or perhaps too far and it had too much slack that the take up reel never grabbed it to advance it thru. You're not the first one this has happened to as the auto load is not as reliable as the older style where you had to load the film leader through a slot in the take up reel.
