Re: nikon f4s

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

1Nikon F4S problem: R1 manual rewind will not unlock when the button is pressed

Possible causes: 1) low batteries, replace with new ones 2) bad switches - clean and retry 3) bad gears in the rewind (common problem on early model F4s. As Nikon quit selling parts over a year ago, if Nikon does not repair these any more, try one of their ASC repair stations as they may still have parts

Nikon F4 - how to replace the shutter

try and find a copy of the Jan/Feb 1993 SPT Journal (try Ebay) which covers this repair, or look for a copy of the Nikon repair manual. If you are not good at small item repair and soldering take it to a professional. Also use a anti-static work mat and wrist strap.

Nikon F4 - shutter replacement

Hi Miguel,
It would be better to send it to Nikon. For mere mortals swapping shutters may very much mess up the camera beyond repair. If you truly love the F4 have Nikon do the work and at the same time have them do a CLA as well.

I can't seem to get the display to light up,when exp meter is turned on.Bottom values do not display bright.Do I have to have film loaded so those values will light up?I have an F4s.

I got a download of the service manual.and discovered a small slide switch,by the manual shutter knob.

I turned it to the right and now the display lights up fully.

Photos have streaks

Sounds like you are shooting at shutter speeds of 1/30th of a second or slower, and/or your flash unit is set to "slow sync" or a similar mode. Try shooting in shutter priority or manual, and using a speed of at least 1/60th but not more than F4's sync speed of 1/250th. If you are shooting a moving subject, you may find that this "problem" actually creates some very interesting effects.

F4s film rewind problem

Hey mikki1,
One reason this might be happening is the multiple exposure lever is stuck to the select position which would not allow the film to advance. I hope this helps!

Will not auto focus

"... Autofocus Lock ("AF-L"). Pressing the AF-L (Autofocus Lock) button enables the Nikon F4 to lock the focus. Simultaneous lock of AF-L and AE-L is possible. "'FREEZE FOCUS" - is another great function in the F4. It allows automatic shutter release when subject enters a pre focused distance - available with Nikon MF-23 and/or the 250 exp. MF-24 Multi-Control Back. i.e. with the shutter button fully depressed, the shutter is automatically fired when a subject comes into a preset manually focused position. This function is recommended for sports races because the racing course is usually known beforehand. It also works well in wildlife remote control photography, scientific, forensic and other technical photography. ..."
