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.

Can't see through the view finder. Camera is on and Lens is automatically attempting to focus. I cannot see through the view finder and the camera will not take the shot.


Take off lens. Is mirror up or down? If mirror is stuck up motor or shutter failure. Is the shutter open (can you see the image sensor?). Was the camera impacted?

I try to focus and it tells me this function is not selectable in the current shooting mode


Yes there are two zones of selection on the mode dial. one is basic zone (in which you have potrait, landscape, closeup, sports, night portrait & flash off) these are fully automatic modes and the camera does every thing for you you cannot change the focus. you can zoom out and zoom in and when u see in the view finder the picture is blur. then press the shutter button halfway the camera automatically zooms in or out for the correct focal lenght. only in creative zone you can do it. like programe ae , shutter priority , aperture priority , manual exposure. Hope this solves your problem. Prashanth.

When I take a picture with the Canon Rebel, it doesn't focus in the view finder, but when I look at the picture after it has been taken, it is clear and in focus. Why can't it looked focused when looking...


Good day,

The problem you might be having is that the view finder is out of focus.
If this is the problem it is an easy fix.
You will see a small wheel next to the view finder (it has a + and a - next to it), look through the view finder and let the camera focus on an object. Now turn the wheel and you will see the image either get worse or start to come in focus. Adjust the wheel until you are satisfied with the clarity.

Please let me know if this was helpful!

Out of focus


There might be a dioptic adjust dial for the viewfinder. Check your manual and if so, look at menu while adjusting until the text is the clearest.

Yes, many people can use the diopter control to fix the manual focus set-up. Others have had to send the camera back to Sony for internal adjustments.
