Question about Nikon F100 35mm SLR Camera
Used nice shape Nikon F100 does not advance film to start of roll when loaded correctly, even though custom setting is set to do so. Camera will show err message on start up, then when shutter button is depressed, camera lifts mirror it clicks and mirror returns, irir stops down and reopens aperture, shutter does not seem to actually open. Afterwards meter works display shows inside and outside outside autofocus responds, meter and exppsure setting responds, but when I press down shutter button again get an err message. Same situation with or without film in camera. Film advance mode selector is not locked, setting wheel turns freely no difference in firing rate no self timer, shoots one click at a time-looking through open camera back shutter does not open though mirror rises and returns. Sounds of firing the same regardless of shutter speed selected. When I get error message then click shutter button and get expousre info, press DOF preview and get err message again. External internal camera looks extremely good no visible damage, battery cavity fine batteries fresh, camera indicates battery good.Thanks, Jim
Jim, it really sounds like one of threethings. Either will require a repair shop.
1. the film sensor is not recognizing film in the film chamber, or film across the back, therefore not telling the advance motor to advance film...
2. The film advance motor itself needs replaced.
3. The rear door latch switch needs replaced.
Since everything else seems to do OK, I doubt the main computer board is bad.
