Re: nikon n4004 top cover

There are two screws on the right side that are hard to find. One is inside the battery chamber and the other is under the small cover surrounding the shutter release button. The cover is held in place by 2 sided tape. Pry it up carefully starting near the strap lug

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.

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.

Does the sigma 70-300mm fit nikon n4004?

Specification for that model here - uses the Nikon F-mount
The sigma was sold with various lens mounts and so could be used on any camera - do you know what mount you have on the Sigma - do you also know if its Auto focus AF as the Camera needs AF.
Details on that camera

Parts for Nikon FM Camera.

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

When trying to load the film in my Nikon N4004, the film won't advance.

most likely cause?
Batteries weak.
film not pulled out far enough for sensor to pick up
Film advance motor worn out
plastic gears stripped

If you're sure it is not the first two, it needs repair.

This sounds like the second shutter curtain is not closing completely - it's not reaching the right hand side of the shutter opening; or it's sticking & thus taking a long time to close so the part of the frame behind that area gets massively overexposed. You can check this by firing the shutter with no film in the camera and the back open. If I'm right, I'm afraid it's a repair shop job - unless you can see a hair or something like it caught up in the shutter. If so, you might just be able to remove it (all of it!) with tweezers.

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.
