SOURCE: location of rewind pin for nikon n6006 film camera

There is a safety switch to prevent accidental operation.  Hold the camera like you are taking a photo.  Rotate the camera down so the lense is pointing towards the floor and you are now looking at the bottom of the camera.  On the right is a small button.  In the middle is a slide switch with an arrow pointing to the left.  You need to hold in the button on the right while sliding the switch to the left.

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..

GOOD LUCK.

SOURCE: Don't know how to open door latch on nikon 35mm SLR camera

You haven't stated which model you have, but generally most SLR's open by pulling upwards on the film rewind crank (the knob on the left side of the top-plate as viewed from behind). If this doesn't work then add the exact model as a comment to my answer and I'll try to give you specific instructions for your model.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: I dont know how to load my Nikon 35mm camera. I need instructions

Pull up the film rewind knob to open the back.

Drop the cartridge into the well on the left and, while rotating the rewind knob, push it back down to secure the cartridge.

Pull the leader across and insert it into any of the slots in the takeup spool.

Make sure the film perforations engage the sprocket teeth.

Alternately wind the film lever and press the shutter button until the perforations on both edges of the film engage the sprocket teeth.

Close the camera back, making sure it latches.

Take up the film slack by rotating the rewind knob in the direction of the arrow until you feel resistance.

Make blank exposures until the counter shows "1".

There's a fuller, illustrated set of instructions in the manual, which you can download from http://www.butkus.org/chinon/nikon.htm

When you say it was difficult to load film, how was it difficult?

One of the most common mistakes I see people make when they say it was difficult, is they unwittingly shove their finger right through the shutter curtain when trying to load a roll. Since the roll is likely no good at this point anyway, rewind it and open the camera.

Look at the center where you should see what looks like 4--5 horizontal little blades of foil. If these aren't nice and straight, but are crinkled, crumpled, aren't closed, half stuck open, the mirror is stuck open, or any number of other issues - you're toast.

Either consult a qualified repair tech locally if there is one or try somewhere like KEH Camera, you can find them online. If you don't want to repair it, stick it on ebay listing the damage and make $1-2

Hi,

I would definitely be concerned that the film is not advancing. I have a Minolta that has the same problem. I missed many a picture because I didn't pay attention to the meter showing the film advancing. I would just make sure the film is advancing by taking a couple shots with the back open before closing it.

If you are positive the film is advancing, it really doesn't matter what the meter says as long as the film is stopping after each exposure.

Finally, if the film is advancing , but the meter is not, and you want it to, you will need to see an experienced repairman to correct it.

Good luck.

Thanks for using Fixya.

My Nikon N75 says error and there is a flashing circle with a dot in the middle when i look through the lens.... What does this mean?!


If the LCD panel shows "E" then the film isn't loaded properly. If the LCD panel shows "ERR" and "E" blinking, then the film is not correctly advanced. If the LCD panel shows a blinking "E" when the exposure meter is turned on, then film remains in the camera after it has been rewound. In all cases, reload film.

If it's not one of those cases, or if the problem persists, please reply to this post giving further details.

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.
