How do I open the back of a Nikon FE SLR when the rewind crank is jammed?

My nikon FE's back wont open anymore since the winder crank is stuck (it is standing out, but I can't get it down anymore and when pulling nothing happens). Is there another way to open a SLR back? I couldn't find anything on the internet about this.

SOURCE: Nikon FE film winder jammed.

Is it the viewfinder or the film advance lever? If the viewfinder is not showing any image and the shutter is not getting released, then it could be a problem with the mirror box.To confirm, remove the lens and see if it gets released. To align the lens, you have to take it to the nearest service center (or repair shop).

How do i open the back door


You lift the rewind crank as per almost all other SLR's but there is a safety lock around the base of the crank which you must slide rearwards (counter clockwise) first.

Make sure that you have fully rewound the film before opening the camera.

I cant open the camara take off the film inside


After rewinding the film, nudge the little switch between the ISO dial and the rewind crank counterclockwise and lift up on the rewind knob until it catches. Then pull up a bit more and the back should spring open.

Move it a bit (some half circle)back and forth. The slot may be in wrong position related to the roll inside. It should click in when you get the slot in right angle.
