Hi, I have a F4 one week ago, I've shoot two films, and when i have developed them, i have seen a line of 4 mm wide along the up long side of each photo. Does anybody know what's...

Thanks for the additional information.

Remove the lens and set the camera to manual exposure mode. Select the "B" (or "Bulb") shutter speed. Open or even remove the camera back and hold the camera up to a light source and press and hold the shutter. Look through the camera to see whether there is any horizontal obstruction towards the bottom of the film gate ( = top of negative, they're taken upside down). If you see an obstruction then assess the damage and if it's a foreign body then remove it. Note that you must absolutely not reach through the open shutter. If it closes whilst you have your fingers or tools in the way you will ruin the shutter assembly.

If that test shows nothing, then you really have run out of options and need to send the camera to a service centre for diagnosis and repair. It's likely to be a sticking shutter causing an overexposed band across the negative, usually the width of the band would show some variation in width and position depending upon shutter speed.

A poor battery will not be the cause of a shutter issue. Unless faulty, the shutter will either work or it won't, unlike the previous F3 the F4 lacks a mechanical back-up shutter speed.

Nikon FG. Replaced 3V battery. On the M90 setting the film advances OK. On 'program' or other settings it will only advance once and after shutter fires it will not advance until put on...

M90 is a battery independent setting - it requires no battery power to function. If it won't advance until put on M90 from other settings, then either you're not allowing for proper exposure, have the settings incorrectly set (film speed, etc), or you have shutter issues. The shutter is electronically controlled on all settings except M90. In the auto setting, your lense MUST be set to the smallest aperture (biggest number). On any other setting, you can use it however you'd like. I'd suggest unloading any film, setting the shutter speed dial to 1/125 or so, opening the back and looking thru and firing the shutter. If it's not snapping open and immediately closed, theres an issue and you need to consult a repair technician either locally, through Nikon, or through KEH Camera online.

The shutter will only close in the B or M90 postion. It opens fine, but won't close. What should I do?

Try a new set of batteries. The shutter is electronically operated at all speeds except the B and M90 settings. If the exposure meter works with a new set of batteries but the shutter still does not, then you'll have to take it in for service.

Shutter wont close

Try setting the shutter to B and see if you can trip the shutter. If no go then it has mechanical problem. If it works on B but not on other shutter speeds, you have electronic problems.

Hello, I just recently put eight rolls of film at Wal-mart to be developed. All of the pictures did not take. All the negatives were clear. What could have caused this to happen. I did not know that there...


the battery you mention is used for memory back up. when you change the main batteries this battery keeps the memory from needing reset. if the film is completely clear the film was not exposed to light. now if the film was transported and the meter and LED was working then the shutter was not opening, an easy check----- just take the lens off and fire the shutter a few times. the shutter may not fire if the film door is opened.
if the shutter is not opening it must be replaced, if you can find a camera repair shop that fixes vintage camera's any parts replaced will be good used.

Shutter stuck on Canon AE 1

Just now saw your problem.....I can repair this for you. No it's not "overwound" you possible have some small piece of plastic that caused your second curtain to get hung up and thus jam the entire camera. I have probably repaired 500 AE-1's with the same problem. Art

F4 has an electronic shutter so check batteries ( see enclosed image ). If your batteries are fresh but still no power ( see if display comes on in view finder ) clean contacts in the battery holder. If still no joy camera should go in.5abb190.jpg

Canon ae-1

To open the back pull on the rewind knob ( pulling up ) until back opens. Check that your 6 volt battery is ok ( ae -1 has an electronic shutter so will not work without a battery ): battery situated on the left hand side of the camera ( if it is facing you ) underneath small flip up door ( lock is at the bottom on the left of the small door ) . Check the battery by pressing the shutter release gently and seeing if your light meter needle moves. No movement ? replace battery. You have two modes for taking pictures : auto which is actually AV ( aperture priority) or full manual : both are set by moving the shutter speed dial on the top right hand side ( underneath film winding lever ).

Shutter jammed

Did you set the camera to M90 AFTER you installed new batteries? The camera will work without batteries in the B and M90 settings, but when you install new batteries, reset the mirror by turning the dial to M90. If this doesn't correct it, I wouldn't recommend opening the camera - take it to a repair shop.
