Re: want to remove top plate of nikon fe

It's not very easy- you have to remove the rewind knob and dials at the left end of the cover and the speed dial and winder arm at the right side. Then the 5 small screws around the cover.
It is a delicate task because under the cover there are some very sensitive electronics. If you are determined to go ahead with it then your best bet might be to get a service manual.

How to get the Nikon fm10 shutter release button to work

C-o-c-k the shutter by advancing the film. You need to do this even if you don't have any film loaded.
Sorry about the first word. FixYa thinks it's a dirty word and will censor it out if I don't do something about it.

I've got Nikon F65. I cannot load film. The motor which load up the film doesn't move at all. Please help!

I don't know this model but you can try this.Drop the film canister in and pull the film strip out and place on the film advance sprocket.Rotate the sprocket by hand/thumb until film is seated (1 turn). If the auto feed is working you will be OK. 2 other things ,1 of course load film in dark area, 2 check the batteries on the camera first, if they are week your film advance wont work ,Good Luck.

Removing Nikon FM2N top plate

Unscrew the rewind knob and remove a circlip under it (You may need to grind the tips of a pair of round-nose pliers for this). Remove the disk and pull the rewind shaft stop off the hub (a spring and flat plate). Remove the two screws. You'll need a special tool to remove the little stud the shaft stop was pivoting on. Take a 1/8 inch screwdriver and grind a slot in the blade. Use this tool to remove the stud, then remove the three screws from the plastic cover ring.

Do not remove the center screw from the shutter speed dial. Remove three screws from the side of the dial and pull off the grip ring.

Nikkormat 35mm SLR light meter not working!

1) Clean the battery contacts and put fresh battery.
2) Open the top cover and clean the meter switch ( located and the wind cam )
3) Meter needle maybe stuck at the rest position. Remove the stopper and replace or clean.
4) If none of these help, check the meter cells and resistor band under the shutter dial behind the lens mount ( hard to do.)

The bottom will fit, but the top cover for an FE2 is quite different than an FM.

My Nikon FE film advance lever is stuck. It does not move at all, there is no film in the camera. The repair shop wants $100 to fix it which is more than the camera is worth I think. I would like to do...

Have you tried fresh batteries and setting the shutter speed dial to M90 or m250 whichever you have? If this does'nt work you can remove the camera bottom plate and gently pull a lever away from the advance cog. Some times things get out of sync in there. Sorry I can't be more specific but I did this many years ago. Good Luck.

How do I remove the film door on my Nikon N90

You should not have removed the screw. It sticks out for a reason. You push it down to release the top hinge of the door.
