Re: nikon F55 camera

You should try another lens. It sounds like a communication problem between the camera and the lens

How to use Nikon Pk-3 extension tube?

It should work with just about any lens, though it works best with moderate focal lengths (say about 24mm to 200mm). Its primary purpose is to let the lens focus much closer than normal.

When you say "no results," do you mean it's not letting you focus closer? Mount the tube on the camera, mount a lens on the tube, then focus the lens to its minimum focus distance. Looking through the viewfinder, move closer to an object until it comes into focus. Does it come into focus? How close? What lens(es) are you trying?

Polaroid 690 SLR-The switch between manual focus and auto focus, does not appear to operate normally. Maybe I do not know how to use it, however I cannot manual focus. Are you familiar with this camera and...

Not sure if this will help, but according to the manual, to use manual focus, push the button down until the red portion is visible, and turn the manual focus control dial until the image appears in focus in the viewfinder. Then, take the photo as normal. To return to autofocus, just return the switch to its normal position.

I have a Nikon FM film camera. The viewfinder has three exposure indicators visible within the viewfield: + for overexposure, O for correct exposure and - for underexposure. These indicators have...

If the red light is steady on the minus sign even if you vary shutter and aperture settings and point the camera at different light exposures, then this is a metering problem. If the red light on the minus sign turns off when you have correct or over exposure, then it would mean your indicator lights for o and + are busted. Have your metering checked by a competent camera technician. In any case, since your camera is fully manual, you can use the 'sunny 16' rule and still shoot away.

I found a notice put out by Nikon, there is a mechanical problem with the Auto focus. U can google it and there is a form to download and print to send in with your camera. The service is free to fix it since it is a manufacturer's defect.

Viewfinder probs. on an old camera

The view finder and auto focus are two different things. The camera can work and the view finder doesn't. The view finder circuit board is probably burned out or has a some bad components. If you are good at electronic circuits you could take the circuit board out yourself and try to trouble shoot it. But your chance of success is nil. RCA no longer carries this camera on their website so help is not available unless you were to take it to a repair shop and then they may not be able to get the parts. Or you may get lucky and they can fix it. You should try that first. At least you'll know what it will cost to fix it. This camera is sold on EBAY, you might be able to get one cheap enough for spare parts. My suggestion: I thinks its time for a new camera. Unless of course you still love VHS.
