Film rewind button at the bottom of the camera stuck on the "in" position. Cannot get it to release.


Put the camera in a change bag open it then manually rewind the film. From there you may be able to free the button. If the button continues to be stuck here is something worth trying that I have seen others do with stuck buttons and aperture blades. To the button add a few drops of lighter fluid let it soak in. Sounds crazy yes, however sometimes that will dissolve gunk buildup freeing the button. That trick works wonders on stuck aperture blades; actually a common practice at repair shops.

Nikon FM10 will only release shutter with cable


Hello Blair,
I too like old school camera, mine are the N2000, N6006, N80, and F100. First without film in the camera I would attempt to release the shutter. If it does then there is something going on with the film transfer causing a bind.

However, If it continues not to release the shutter I would put the FM10 on the shelf then go to KEH.com for another. Just now checked KEH.com, 2014-05-26, a FM10 in EX condition is $89, EX+ condition $99. That would be a much better move than repairing yours and less expensive.

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.

Exposed film is stuck in the camera. Rewind crank won't budge and I'm not going to force it.


Hi,
If you need to save the pictures you will need to find a dark room and open the back to see what jammed up. Good Luck !!!!!!!!!

Film release button on bottom of body is stuck in. Wont pop back out.


If you can not wind and release the shutter, the film release button will not come up.
If you can not trip the shutter, by replacing the mirror release magnet at the bottom will usually fix the problem.

I have an Canon AE-1 and the film advance lever will not advance the film, the lever goes half way. The shutter will not release. Thanks


The film is either at the end or stuck. The shutter will not release unless the film advance lever has gone all the way and back.
Make a note of the frame counter. Rewind the film and remove it from the camera (When you feel the film to come loose from the receiving spool, stop rewinding to prevent the end of the film to disappear inside the can. This way you can reload it if it was stuck in the middle.) If the film was completely exposed, take it to be developed.
With the empty camera, try to advance the lever and release the shutter. If this works, the problem was the film and not the camera. Everything is fine. If the problem persists, take it to be repaired.
If the film was stuck in the middle, load it again into the camera. With the lense cap on (preferably in a dark room or similar) 'shoot' as many 'empty' frames as you had on the counter plus two more. Finish the film and develop the pictures.
If the film stucks again at the same place, rewind it and develop normally. It was a bad film.
Hope this helped you to solve the problem.

Camera has a bad magnet, the A series were plagued by this.
Repairs will cost more than probably what it's worth.
The AE-1's used an electromagnet system to activate the shutter for a smoother press and less shake from the camera system.

I got lucky and recently purchased an AE-1 program that doesn't have this problem, it seems to be a hit and miss with these.

Film advance lever and shutter release button are "stuck"


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.
