SOURCE: Nikon FA depth of field preview lever sticky

The small lever on the inside of the mirror box is what controls the aperture. If the lever on the outside is sticking, it would only hold the lever on the inside down so you would be stopped down all the time. You can try a small amount of lighter fluid at the base of the outside lever and work it back and forth to see if it would free up.

I purchased a used Nikon FA camera for my daughter to use in her photography class. None of the pictures came out during developing. Any ideas what the problem could be? I was only given a 7 day return...


If it's still within the 7 days take it back. The Nikon FA was a great camera but time and lack of use has probably caused the shutter to seize. To put this camera back into serviceable condition for any photography will require a clean, lubrication and adjustment by a qualified camera person. I'm in Canada and have cameras service fairly regularly older ones to have this type of work performed will cost about $120.00 Canadian. The instructor is probably asking for the students to have a manual camera to be able to learn from the ground up which to me is the best way but, these old cameras are failing just because the grease is drying out. There are still a lot of good used working camera out there I just bought a great Canon Elan 7Ne for $199.00 CDN and it's a 2005 model the last year of the Canon film cameras. I guess it depends on if you want to spend the money (and time) to get the FA repaired or step into something for a little more money that works properly right from the get go.

Nikon 6006 has stickey shutter. can i fix it?


I would suggest strongly that you don't attempt this. There are still lots independent camera repair people around that can do this work. It requires resetting the light meter and shutter after the shutter service and without the proper tools you'll just ruin the camera. I've seen camera service/repair auctioned on e-Bay for under $100.00 some exotic makes will go higher but the Nikon FA I'd say would go in the $130.00 range. You could also do a Google search for a repair depot, you may be surprised to find someone local to do it as well.

Try moving the coupler on the bottom where the motor drive would connect. See if you can rotate the piece clockwise. With the advance lever loose, it may be in mid-cycle on the winding/advance

Nikon fa how do i start ? how do i get the film out i need the basics


On all of that series of Nikon SLRs, there is a small black plastic tab under the rewind handle on the left side of the camera. (as looking from the back). The tab needs to be pushed lightly and that will release the rewind shaft so you can pull up on the rewind knob to open the film door.

more info can be found here on Fixya

The FE2/FM2 are very similar in operations and function
