    With all lenses and when it is on auto and manual focus.

  • netniet2002 Feb 09, 2010

    Yep, new batteries, film, tried every exposure, focus and all my lenses. Nada. No silly questions, I just have a gut feeling it is something simple I am over looking.

    Do you get the problem with all lenses or just one? Do you get the same problem when the camera is set to manual focus?

  • kakima May 11, 2010

    I know this is a dumb question, but have you tried a fresh set of batteries?

    What exposure mode? What focus mode? What lens?

Make sure it has good fresh batteries. Look at the film, make sure it is loaded correctly, or that there is film in the camera. and last look at the shutter. Open the back of the camera and the shutter is right in front of the film on the lens side of the back. if there shutter is not flat, but one or more of the little black blades are out of place then that is the problem. That shoud be sent back for service. It is not something you can push back into place without potentially doing more damage.

Nikon N65 with Nikkor 35~80mm AF lens will not focus or shoot


N65s were notorious for bad shutter release buttons. The metal is thinner than a strand of hair and they break. Search Ebay and see if the part is available to replace (note: Nikon stopped selling parts last year).

I don't have a problem as much of a question.. does the nikon n65 do panaramic pictures?


Not in the camera, but you could shoot a panoramic and crop it later. That is what most of the panoramic camera of that era did anyways. Use your widest lens.

vickiep24,
Since you didn't mention anything about shooting in manual settings I'm going to guess you have been and the camera work there in shutter or aperture mode, so make sure you set your lens's F-stop back to the auto position - check the dot on the lens ring with the f-stop numbers (usually in red) like the f-22 make sure they are aligned when in auto so when the camera needs more light and the lens can fully open to give it the light it is asking for, then it will shoot otherwise it won't. Does that make sense.

N65 Nikon Issue


With the advent of auto focus on Nikon cameras came electronics in the lenses. These electronics communicate with the camera. Since the camera controls the aperture, it needs to be set at the high end to allow the full range of f-stops. I.E. it cannot set f-22 if the ring is on f-8. With all of the modes available on the camera. you control the setting or the camera does, its just no longer a mechanical function.

Nikon n65 will not take pictures


nachbor,
Not knowing if you are shooting in auto or have recently switched from manual to auto shooting you may have adjusted your f-stop on the lens, make sure you adjust the ring to align with the auto setting (the f-22 in red letters) with the dot on the lens) then the camera will be allowed to open for enough light to take the shot.

Auto Focus Nikon N65


amyfesh,
I have been finding a lot of these concerns while looking back at unsolved SLR issues, it shoots at the ceiling or the sky because there is just enough light the camera detects. Check the lens ring for a white dot and the ring for the aperture rotate the ring so the red f-stop (usually in red and f-22 or somewhere near that number) align, now the lens will open enough to allow the light that the camera has determined that it needs, now it will allow the shutter to open. I just joined the fixya in December, so I hope to hear from you if this helped and if you have any other questions about the N65.

Make sure your lens has the aperture ring to the minimum f-stop number, i.e. (f-22, f-32, largest number) and the focus switch set to 'S' or 'C'
