Try a 2-button reset (BKT and Meter button, press and hold until top LCD blinks) then go to Menu, tab with the wrench, "Mirror lockup", highlight "Yes", press "Right" on multi selector. Power off camera, then power on, Fixes the problem on my D70s.

How can I take photos whenever the mirror lock up is effect


You can't take photos when mirror is in lock up mode. That is used to clean the sensor(dangerous to do if not properly equipped!). Turn off power to camera to snap mirror back up and then you can switch to manual mode to shoot long exposures. Hope this helps!!

Rear view mirror fell off the glass, how do I take the plate off the mirror so I can glue it to the windsheld


Loosen the the tiny allen set screw if it has one, OR it just pops/slides out, and it is hard to get it to do that. Hold the mirror like it was on the glass, the metal piece comes out the bottom or towards the dash. Also, when glued you will have to slide the mirror back onto the metal piece starting at the top and push it down until it locks....you'll know!! You might think your going to pop the metal off the glass but keep firm steady pressure and it'll go.

My Praktica LLC mirror locks up and won't return. The shutter stays open partly or fully.


do you have exact model - this maybe bulb which allows the shutter to stay open for as long as the shutter release is pressed - or mirror lock setting - for macro work to avoid any camera shake when the mirror moves - by locking the mirror

The glass in the driver side rear view mirror is loose. how do you tighten it up?


The driver and passenger side mirrors have a small rubber plug in the bottom center of the mirror housing. Remove the plug and there is a phillips head screw holding the mirror assembly. Tighten this screw about 1/8 turn and it will keep the mirror from moving around. If you remove the screw you can remove the mirror and drive motors. Use a bit of thread-lock to keep the screw from loosing again. Reinstall the rubber plug.

Unable to take picture


I don't know if there is a mirror lock up button on this camera or not. Some have it for slow exposes. Nikon does have a technical phone number or place on their website to contact them. I had a D100 that had the ERR message show up on it, and it cost $400 to repair. But look for the mirror lock button.

Mirror lock


Possibly the shaft has jammed. Follow this link for a source of good information: http://www.mapug-astronomy.net/AstroDesigns/MAPUG/ArhvList.htm

From their files:
The locking knob has a gear on the inside end of its shaft. It engages teeth on the outside edge of a large metal disk connected to the mechanism that locks the position of the mirror on the central baffle tube. Rotating the locking knob one direction rotates the large disk to tighten the collet on the central baffle. Reversing direction loosens it.
The teeth do not extend all the way around the large disk. So sometimes the locking knob gear jams to a stop before the lock is fully engaged. Soon after the GPS scopes first started shipping Buck Harley discovered that in such cases you can remove the locking knob with its shaft and gear, then reach in and rotate the large disk with your finger. Replacing the locking knob will now allow sufficient rotation to fully engage the lock. If you happen to move the large disk in the wrong direction, then just repeat the process and move the disk in the other direction.
You don't need to tighten the lock down hard. Just a little snug is enough. You should not attempt to use the coarse focus knob while the mirror is locked. Damage to the focusing mechanism could result.
This design is intended to precisely hold the mirror position. So, yes, it is meant to allow effective use of a separate guide scope by eliminating mirror flop when in the locked position.

D70 mirror lock up


I'm looking for the source of this same problem. I was able to get my d70 unstuck by:
1. Set to full manual mode.
2. In the menus set mirror lock up to yes and then press shutter release.
3. Turn camera off and then back on

Hope this helps you!

Mirror Locked in Up Position


When you say you put in a new roll of film, did the camera advance the film with the mirror locked up? Have you tried triggering the shutter few times to release the mirror? If that doesn't work, open the back of the camera. Turn the film take up spool in one direction...that should release the mirror down. Turn it also in the opposite direction. If that doesn't work, reach inside the lens mount opening and pull the mirror (very very gently) down. Don't force it down if it doesn't want to go. Sometimes that releases the mechanism that freezes from sitting idle for too long. It is always a good idea to take the camera out and triger few frames every couple of months to keep things lubricated. Let me know if that fixes it. AJ.
