Question about Nikon N65 35mm SLR Camera
When I look throught the view finder and try to focus it using automatic or manual it does not focus properly. I cannot see the focus area symbol either. It is not the lense because I have another lense and that has the same problem. please Help!
In that case, the AF system has failed.
Unfortunately, this now means that you F65 has just become an unrepairable spares donor. Your camera was a short-lived budget model and Nikon never gave it the spares support of more expensive models.
IF you can find the spare parts needed, they'll exceed the cost of replacing your camera, and that's even before you include labour costs.
It's not all bad news though: models like the F65 and F75 are simply of no value to Nikon enthusiasts so are available very cheaply. I recently got a boxed, mint, "used for just one holiday" F75 with the kit 28-100 lens for free on my local Freegle group (a UK offshoot of FreeCycle, where many of my other Nikons and Canons have come from). Used camera dealers tend to sell F65/F75 bodies for around £50-£60, and on auction sites they tend to go for anywhere between £5 to £30 unless there are competing idiot bidders. Last summer I also got a Nikon n8008s (F801s) on FreeCycle, it's a bit battered but works perfectly, so it's definitely worth registering with all of the groups within easy reach of you and regularly scanning the offers.
