Try the first solution , it worked for me :)

I had an error (Err) message with an E in the window. Both were flashing, eventually the Err would stop and just an E would show in the window. I had to leave the camera on, open the door and remove the film, flash a few pix without the film in, reload the film, with camera on, and then close the door. It worked! No more error message.

I just tried a similar work around and fixed it. Try taking film out, leave door open, turn camera on. Error should go away except for an E in the film count area. As suggested earlier, click thru a few shots - with the film out and the door open. With the camera still on, load the film. Seemed to fix it for me. Good luck!

Have successfully loaded and developed three films since posting dated 21.05.2008. On each occassion I have found that if switch on the power and operate the shutter tow or three times without any film in the camera, and then insert a fresh film into the camera it correctly loads. Don't know whether this is simply good fortune or the way forward - but it has worked for me so far! (Bath UK)

Is there a manual rewind on nikon n65?

If by manual you mean turning a crank to rewind the film, no. If you mean to do it at a point other than the end of the roll, yes.

To rewind film mid-roll, press the two film rewind buttons simultaneously for approximately one second. The film will then rewind and the frame counter will count backward. The film is completely rewound when the E appears in place of the frame number.

The two film rewind buttons are marked with a red film canister symbol with left-pointing arrows. One is the exposure compensation button next to the control panel, the other is the self-timer button next to the mode dial.

How is the film stuck? Is the rear door stuck? Does the film door open?

As long as you do not damage the film canister, the film will be ok. If the door opens and the film is rewound, use something to pry out the top of the canister from the camera. Then you can remove the film.
Even a film roll of 36 should not get stuck. Check the cartridge are for anything sticky. Sometimes these older cameras get some sticky residue from decaying foam in the shutter area. This would be a good time to send it in for CLA - Clean, Lubricate, Adjust.
My own EOS 10 had that problem. If you can't get the film out, the repair shop will do that for you.

35mm film broke rewinding in camera

Take the camera with the film still inside to a reputable business that develops and prints pictures. The usually have a means of retreiving the film with out futher damage. If you want to do this yourself, you will need a place that is totally dark. You will also need something that is totally light tight. A solid plastic film canister may be sufficient. Take your camera into the "dark room" , open the back and gently try and release the film avoiding as much as possible only touching the edges of the film. You can turn the lights on once you have the film inside the light tight canister.

Putting film into nikon f60

It is fairly simple. Insert the film canister with the hole side (not the projection) down. Insert the spool of the camera into this hole and slide the canister inside the chamber. Now pull the film out slightly so that the leader (the narrow portion at the end of the film) aligns with the orange mark at the lower right end of the film chamber. Make sure there is no slack in the film. Close the door and turn on the camera.

Blank Film Developing


you should have at least 6in. of exposed film from the film canister to the take-up spool unless you loaded the film in total darkness.
open the back cover to make sure the shutter is working, reload and give it another try.

Big problem

The only thing i can suggest is pushing the film rewind button on the bottom of the camera body. crank the film back in to the canister and drop a new roll in. Ihave experianced this problem once or twice when I rolled canisters from bulk film and it would get jammed.

Good luck

Hey mrskee,
The first suggestion I would make is to make sure your pulling the film leader out far enough, and the film canister is sitting in place properly. If this doesn't work I would examine the sprocket holes in the film leader and make sure they are not ripped if they are you should pull the film out until they are no longer ripped and then try loading the film again. I hope this helps.

Nikon N80 Shutter? Issue

dear ben505,
This could be due to the shutter leaking light from the top or bottom, and it could also be caused by light leaking in through the camera back. The most common cause of edge fogging is light leaking in through the film canister, which happens over time if the unused film is not stored properly. If this is a high ISO film(400 and up) and you load your film into the camera in a very bright enviroment that can also cause film fogging. Try a brand new roll of film and if that doesn't resolve the problem I would have it looked at by a camera service technician.

On the bottom of the Nikon FE, there is a silver button to push in, and this releases a lock for the film.
Then on the left side, on the top, there is a white arrow and a silver lever tucked in. Wind your film, this it's all the way back in the canister. Then the black lever by the speed film (ASO) numbers, pull that back toward you. This will release the black 3/4" knob upward, and by gently pulling this upward, your door will release and the film canister will be allowed to come out. Just besure to wind your film back in the cansiter, before you open the door, or your photos will be over exposed. Best to do this in a darker area or shaddowed area, just for protection.
Good Luck. I've had mine since the mid 1970's and love it for double exposures and the special filters I have for it. The Hot Shoe for the flash attachment, just burned out on me a couple of days ago.
