My Nikon F80 won't load y film automatically, it has a FEE error on the screen but i don't know what that is??

The lens you are using has the aperture ring set to something the camera cannot use. Simply turn the aperture ring to the largest number, usually a 22 or 32. Lock that ring if there is a lock and the fee should be gone.

I have a 35mm nikon camera. I've changed the batteries but the film won't load. how can i load the film?

Here is what to look at: Custom Function number 8, "Auto film load when back is closed", default setting is 1 disabled on 0 it is enabled. If you have the manual for the F80 (same as N80) look on page 21 and page 72 and 73.If that is not the issue check the following: With the new batteries does the camera turn on, Can you focus, does the LCD light up? All that will let you know if you are getting power to the camera. If the answer is yes then the film should load so now check the inside of the camera back. Does it have the pressure are and roller next to the hinge. If that is missing then when you pull the film to the red dot, close the camera back there is nothing to put pressure on the film for it to load.

Nikon f100 film won't advance

We will assume you know how to load the film to the red mark. If the film is not advancing a couple of things could be happening. When you close the back door it is not engaging the film to hold it against the take-up spool. If so then that needs to be fixed. The other thing to check is the left side where the film cartridge goes in, does it turn. If not it is binding the film cartridge. Nikon Film 1-800-645-6687

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.

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

It is possible to damage Nikon SLRs by attaching them to certain older pieces of equipment. There are two main issues that you may encounter.

There are a series of contacts inside the lens mount that must be in good condition for correct operation of the camera. If the older gear causes these to bend or break, the camera will require repair. Look inside the lens mount using a flashlight to see if there is any sign of scraping or that the contact pins look damaged.

Many Nikon SLRs have a ring on the outside of the lens mount that has a small tab sticking up. The ring is supposed to rotate freely and the tab should interface with part of a Nikkor lens of AI-S or AF vintage. Earlier non-AI-S lenses or accessories could compress the ring or break the pin or both. If you can get the ring to rotate freely again, you might be able to get the camera to function. If the tab is broken or the ring is stuck or both, your camera will need professional repair.

Just bought one of these for myself secondhand and had the same problem - there is a little bit of metal (2-3mm long) sticking out at the top right hand side where the film comes out of the cassette. I found you have to slide the film in from the bottom of the camera, so the leader goes over that bit and the round bit of the canister under it, then you push the bottom of the canister in.
