SOURCE: Nikon N80 takes one shot, then needs abt 10 sec cooldown

If your batteries are fresh ( have seen flat new ones older stock) and are using alkalines then I would think you have a connector problem. Can you check and clean the connectiosn inside the grip and on the camera body. I've also seen dirty lens contacts and even a sticky shutter cause this. It's usually not serious just rather annoyng until you find it.

SOURCE: hi, my batteries in the

Hello qpray... I suspect that the voltage in those new lithium batteries is too high for your camera. Check your manual and see what batteries are recommended. I think once you get different batteries your problem will be solved.


Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Can I get user manual for Nikon MB-40 multi-power battery pack for F6 body?

I think the extent of the instructions is on the Nikon USA web site. Here it is

"The Nikon MB-40 Multi-Power Battery Pack accommodates eight AA (alkaline, lithium, or Ni-MH) batteries, or the Nikon EN-EL4 Rechargeable Li-ion Battery. The MS-40 Battery Holder comes with the MB-40. With the MB-40 attached, film can be advanced as fast as 8 fps.
When using the EN-EL4 battery, the Battery-Chamber Cover BL-3 must be used.
The MB-40 is also a vertical grip, and features a vertical grip shutter release, an AF start button, and Multi-selector and Command Dials for more comfortable and responsive shooting."

I recently bought a nikon f2. After I bought a battery (single 3 volt as recommended by the person at batteries plus) I opened the battery compartment, with the positive pole pointing out, closed the...

The Nikon F2 for me is the best mechanical film camera ever produced. The only electrical or battery- dependent part is its metering. Meaning to say, even without batteries, the F2 should work and take pictures on all shutter speeds. Most probably, the F2 that you bought has a non-working photomic meter finder due to a defective ring resistor, a part that is usually the first thing that would fail on this camera. What, then, are your options? One, have the meter fixed by a competent manual camera technician. Two, buy a working Photomic finder and replace what you have. Three, buy or use a handheld meter. Four (the least expensive), use the sunny 16 rule. As added reference, here's a link that might help enlighten you more about how the F2 metering works:

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.

Mirror locked up on Nikon F75

Try pressing and releasing the shutter button. If that doesn't do anything, then turn the camera off and on and press and release the shutter button. If that still doesn't do anything, then turn the camera off, remove and reinsert the batteries (or a fresh set, if readily available), turn the camera on, and press and release the shutter button.

I ran across a Nikon N80 last week which hadn't been used for many moons. I tried the shutter and the mirror promptly locked up. It took about half a dozen tries, but the mirror eventually shook loose or whatever, and the camera now works perfectly.

If the above procedure doesn't do it, then you may have to take it in to a good camera shop for a CLA (clean-lubricate-adjust), the camera equivalent of an automobile tune-up.
