TRy firing the camera in the M90 setting. If it fires properly, use the battery test switch. If the battery LED doesn't light up, replace the batteries (2 MS76 type). The FE requires healthy batteries to operate the shutter. If the meter is calling for a slow shutter speed (low light or lens cap still on?). If the batteries are good, but the shutter still won't fire normally in sufficient light, looks like you're in for a repair shop visit.

Hi, I was taking pictures with my camera and I turned the handle to get to the next picture and the button we press to open the shutter (capture the picture) I can push it but it wont click. Please tell me...


Sounds like the shutter has not fully cocked, which often happens when you get to the end of a film and the film advance won't move on a full frame. Try the film rewind crank(gently). If it is not able to turn either way, then you have used up a film and have to rewind it and remove it from the camera. You will then be able to advance the film wind lever to finish cocking the shutter and it will fire as normal.

Ive just loaded a film, following the instructions, shut the back and wanted to advance the film, but the lever wouldnt extend the full way, it only goes to the on position


I have the same problem with a Nikon F2, got it off my grandfather and its been in his attic for at least the last 10 years. I don't know if parts have seized up or if im doing something wrong. have put in new batteries, but film advance lever won't go past "on" position. have tried pressing shutter but it doesn't help. Also film winding knob will not lift up enough to load in a film! any solutions!?

Nikon FE film winder jammed.


Is it the viewfinder or the film advance lever? If the viewfinder is not showing any image and the shutter is not getting released, then it could be a problem with the mirror box.To confirm, remove the lens and see if it gets released. To align the lens, you have to take it to the nearest service center (or repair shop).

Shutter won't open and film won't advance


You might have a dead battery. Check that.

Film advance lever.


Do you press the shutter button to release the lever for the next photo? That's how you advance the film from the exposure to light, when first insterting the film.

F4s film rewind problem


Hey mikki1,
One reason this might be happening is the multiple exposure lever is stuck to the select position which would not allow the film to advance. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Shutter remains open


The problem could lie in the meter/speed dial unit or in the shutter itself. New parts are no longer available for that model. You may be able to find a good one on one of the auction sites or even Craigslist. A good used one would be less than a repair even if parts were on hand.

Shutter


This is a fairly common problem with Nikon FE . It is usually caused by poor connection ( usually dry joint ) between the light meter board ( all of this is just under the top cover on the right hand side and the top cover is quite easy to remove ) and the shutter and you fix it by resoldering all the connecting wires between the two.

Shutter remains open


It may be fatal as there are no parts available for the FE series. The main components that cause this problem are the FRE/ASA unit and the meter itself. The FRE is located under the rewind knob side of the top cover. It is made of glass and can be damaged by impact. The meter is under the speed dial and can also cause this type of problem. Neither is a easy repair.
