Question about Nikon F100 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Nikon F100 does not advance film to start of roll,

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.

I thought I loaded the film in a Nikon F100. The Camera showed the film was moving 1-24 I got to 24 the film re-winded I took it to get developed and The film was clear I just need to know how the load...


Since you managed to close the back of the camera and shoot, you've placed the actual canister into the camera correctly.

What happened is there are a series of pegs on the left side of the camera, or sometimes just a red indication line, that the film must be placed onto. If you don't lay the film onto this, the camera won't pull the film out of the canister when you shoot, but it will rewind it back into the canister correctly when it thinks you are out of shots. This will result in a blank roll of film.

Nikon F100 suddenly went dead


Which battery holder are you using? The small one or the grip MB-15? If it is the MB-15 make sure it is screwed in tight. If it is the small one then make sure your batteries are in the correct direction. If that does not work call Nikon Film 1-800-645-6687.

Nikon f100 film won't advance


We will assume you know how to load the film to the red mark. If the film is not advancing a couple of things could be happening. When you close the back door it is not engaging the film to hold it against the take-up spool. If so then that needs to be fixed. The other thing to check is the left side where the film cartridge goes in, does it turn. If not it is binding the film cartridge. Nikon Film 1-800-645-6687

Camera is winding film on but only shows frame one in the top lcd


If you are positive the film is advancing as you shoot photos then call Nikon Film 1-800-645-6687. It may need to go in for a CLA.

Problem with loading film in my Nikon F60.


Draw the film all the way to the receiving spool. There's an 'eye' inside the film compartment to check that the film is loaded. When the film is not correctly loaded the camera thinks it's empty and rewinds the film.

Loaded film blank


Chances are the film had quite a bit of curl to it (often a sign of old film) and it was not pulled over quite far enough during auto loading, or perhaps too far and it had too much slack that the take up reel never grabbed it to advance it thru. You're not the first one this has happened to as the auto load is not as reliable as the older style where you had to load the film leader through a slot in the take up reel.

Film advance lever and shutter release button are "stuck"


No, it is not the battery. My guess is that the film leader did not stay in the take-up spool and is now bunched up around it. Try rewinding the film carefully as you normally would but remember that you are only rewinding a small portion of the length. You can even just open the film door and start over. You will only loose 3 or 4 frames on the roll.
