    The shutter gets stuck up and it resolves again when I hit the stutter button twice and two frames jump. It happens intermittently and a technician told me that it is due to the weakening of the mirror pull back spring or the catch being wasted/broken.

Shutter button wont go down on my N2020 nikon

Make sure the shutter isn't locked. Lift the ring around the shutter button and turn it to something other than the "L" for lock position.

Curtains is not working

This is not a DIY repair even if you had the spare part available. You'll have to get a professional camera repairer to fix this, sorry.

It's most likely just in need of a regular CLA service (Clean, Lubricate, Adjust) but if the mechanism is faulty then a replacement shutter assembly must be fitted. CLA costs are just one of the occasional costs of owning any camera of this type and although it will cost as much as the camera is worth, any used replacement which you buy may also need a CLA.

A faulty shutter is definitely more than the camera is worth, given that my last two F80's were obtained free on FreeCycle/Freegle and usually go quite cheaply on auction sites it's worth thinking twice before replacing the shutter. An otherwise good, used F80 sold for spares or repair often goes for almost as much as a non-faulty one, but expect prices to drop sharply for now until a few months after Christmas. This also means that non-faulty ones will also be cheap so it cuts both ways; you will also see more SLR's on offer for free on FreeCycle/Freegle just after Christmas as folks clear out their old stuff after getting shiny new toys!

Problem in camera or film roll??

Hey msenile,
It is possible that each frame would have image data imprinted without and image being exposed. This could be caused by the shutter not opening while the camera still exposing the film internally with the image data recorded. It is unlikely that this bad film since the emulsion covers the entire surface of the film and if it were bad the image data would not be recorded either. Another cause of this but very unlikely is every frame was somehow extremely underexposed. This could happen if the camera is set to manual and the light level is low and the shutter speed is set to a fast speed and the aperture is set to a very small aperture. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Weird error message

Whenever you have a problem like this, start with the simple fix. Reset the electronics by removing the batteries, waiting a few seconds and replacing them.

F4 has an electronic shutter so check batteries ( see enclosed image ). If your batteries are fresh but still no power ( see if display comes on in view finder ) clean contacts in the battery holder. If still no joy camera should go in.5abb190.jpg

Manual Exposure mode Nikon F80

1) turn the mode switch/knob on the left of the camera to M ( manual mode ) 2) turn your lens to the highest f-stop ( 22 or 16 depending on your lens ) 3) in front of shutter release button you have control for your aperture : turn until the desired aperture is displayed ( view finder or the LCD monitor on the top ) 4) your shutter speed setting is controlled with your thumb with the control situated next to the strap lug on the right hand side of the camera. 5) press shutter release half way and look through viewfinder and see light meter reading and adjust either shutter speeds or the aperture as explained being guided by the l.meter.
