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.

The camera requires you to set your lens aperture at the minimum setting, usually orange coloured. I.E. f22 f32. Nikons control the aperture through the camera, not setting the ring manually like old style SLR's

Hi: I have a nikon n75 I have film in the camera but looking for the rewind button. Not able to locate my manual. First time doing this.


There is no rewind. When the camera loads the film, it pulls it out all the way. Each time it takes a shot, it rewinds the frame back into the can. At the end of the roll the leader is wound back into the can. As soon as you hear the motor stop, you can just open it and take out the film.

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.

you should have at least 6in. of exposed film from the film canister to the take-up spool unless you loaded the film in total darkness.
open the back cover to make sure the shutter is working, reload and give it another try.

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.

N75 will not load film


Quick solution: force a manual rewind.
1. Remove film
2. Close camera back.
3. With the power turned on, press the two rewind buttons together. They are marked in red.
4. The camera will make a rewind sound and will stop after about 2 seconds.
5. DO NOT fire the shutter yet.
6. Put the mode on Manual and select a fast shutter speed like 1/90 sec. Any aperture will do.
7. Load the film correctly as given in the user's manual.
8. As you close the camera back, the film will prewind to the end of roll. At the end of the roll pre-wind the LCD will show you the total number of frames available.
9. Select any shooting mode.
10. Go on and take pictures.

Hope this helps
