Question about Hasselblad Extension Tube 16e

Open Question

I am using the 500c/m with the 80mm 2.8 T* and it works very well. But when I add the extension 16E and push the shutter release, instead of the well known Hasselblad shutter sound, it makes just a faint 'click' sound. After releasing I keep seeing the normal image on the focusing screen. Film advance and shutter cocking seems to work fine afterwards. I don't have a developed film yet, so I have no idea what the taken photograph looks like. What am I doing wrong?

Nikon N65 with Nikkor 35~80mm AF lens will not focus or shoot


N65s were notorious for bad shutter release buttons. The metal is thinner than a strand of hair and they break. Search Ebay and see if the part is available to replace (note: Nikon stopped selling parts last year).

Planar 80mm T*,wrong 1,2,4 speeds


I have been repairing Hasselblads since 1991. I can tell you that removing the shutter for repairs is a time consuming task that requires patience and tolerance. All of the screws are flat blade, nine in particular that are hard to reach without the proper set of drivers.

The shutter has a gear train that needs to be cleaned and lubricated to fix the lower speed problem. It is common since they are rarely used in commercial work

I have a Hasselblad 500c/m with the lens stuck on the body and I not turn the shutter knob. Help!


Get the back off the camera, make sure you can see inside the camera and locate a chrome screw in the middle below the lens.
Turn it right to align the locater slot of lens and body. Be very careful and do not use to much force. If you turn it enougn you can use the release button an unscrew the lens by turning it anti-clockwise.

Get the manual. They are picky, it might require the shutter to be wound or something like that.

Dropped the camera and now...


Sounds like the chassis under the shutter button has somehow distanced itself from the shutter release button, maybe bent away from the button? Its s stretch but that maybe the problem. The button is designed to have 2 contacts in it, the autofocus switch and the shutter release depending on how much you press it, like most cameras

Orange Warning Light


I recently had a similar problem and found the answer to be the shutter release on the lens itself.

When the using the shutter release, (mirror up feature), on the lens the shutter release, screw in portion, in the lens will actually will pop out to accomidate for the cable release.

There will be a small red circle around the base of the area where the cable release would screw into.

Try pushing that back in. Worked for me.

Good luck,

James

Shutter release button is stuck


You have two choices 1. take it to a repair shop and get a quote[almost the price of a new camera I wager] 2. Try your self[bearing in mind that if you cant fix it you'll have to buy a new camera] Chances are the in dropping it the button has forced it self through an aperture in the casing so that it cannot return. If you have access to fine screw drivers[Jewellers/watchmakers]slack off the screws holding the case together- done take 'em right out just slack 'em-it might pop right back out- if it does tighten up.
