Question about Nikon N70 35mm SLR Camera
When i tried to use my N70, which had sat idle for a couple of months, the mirror locked in the up position. The batteries are almost new. The battery indicator indicates full charge. I returned all settings to those that were set in the factory and put in a new roll of film. The mirror is still locked. Do you have any suggestion on how to release the mirror and what might be wrong? Thanks
When you say you put in a new roll of film, did the camera advance the film with the mirror locked up? Have you tried triggering the shutter few times to release the mirror? If that doesn't work, open the back of the camera. Turn the film take up spool in one direction...that should release the mirror down. Turn it also in the opposite direction. If that doesn't work, reach inside the lens mount opening and pull the mirror (very very gently) down. Don't force it down if it doesn't want to go. Sometimes that releases the mechanism that freezes from sitting idle for too long. It is always a good idea to take the camera out and triger few frames every couple of months to keep things lubricated. Let me know if that fixes it. AJ.
