SOURCE: shutter

This is a fairly common problem with Nikon FE . It is usually caused by poor connection ( usually dry joint ) between the light meter board ( all of this is just under the top cover on the right hand side and the top cover is quite easy to remove ) and the shutter and you fix it by resoldering all the connecting wires between the two.

Have Minolta 440si. It was 'dormant' w/o battery for several years. Wanted to use. Loaded fresh battery and film. No shutter operation at all. But,display is visible and auto film load and rew


If it has been stored for so long, the internal battery, which maintains the settings etc and is charged from the main battery, is probably defunct.

This camera is somewhere between fifteen and thirty years old. It is highly unlikely that spares would be available, and it would be extremely expensive to have it repaired in any case, most artificers familiar with the internal layout having probably retired years ago. Maybe the camera should be retired too ?

What if the rewinding lever doesnt rewind ?


Change the batteries under the camera. This camera is electronic. With a new battery, the camera will reset the mirror and you can **** the shutter and lower the mirror. If this does not fix the problem you may have a shutter or advance problem and the camera would have to be send off for repair. Start witht he battery, that is the fix 9 out of 10 times.

I was taking some photos (I had got around taking 4 exposures) and all of a sudden (and this is the first time its ever happened) I was not able to take anymore pictures. It sounds like the Shutter Release...


it seems to think you reached the end of the film. Try rewinding. Once in a great while film does not want to exit the canister for whatever reason. It stops. that creates tension, film advance motor stresses out and signals the computer program which tells you that it thinks you're outa film. REWIND!!!

I doubt you did anything wrong. Try rewinding the film. Another possible fix if its electronic issues is to remove power(battery) and reinstall battery.

I have a minolta x-300 and the shutter won't release when I took a long exposure with the 'b' setting, is there a way to reset the shutter?


'B' settings and other long exposure settings on electronically controlled shutters are always the death knell for a nearly exhausted battery. The X-300 is totally reliant on batteries to power the shutter and so the shutter lock-up is cured simply by replacing the batteries with fresh ones. For consistently accurate exposures use two silver oxide SR44 cells instead of cheaper lithium alkaline LR44 cells which have an unstable voltage.

Don't leave it too long though as the shutter can stick if left this way for too long.

Shutter remains open


It may be fatal as there are no parts available for the FE series. The main components that cause this problem are the FRE/ASA unit and the meter itself. The FRE is located under the rewind knob side of the top cover. It is made of glass and can be damaged by impact. The meter is under the speed dial and can also cause this type of problem. Neither is a easy repair.

F4 has an electronic shutter so check batteries ( see enclosed image ). If your batteries are fresh but still no power ( see if display comes on in view finder ) clean contacts in the battery holder. If still no joy camera should go in.5abb190.jpg

N75 will not load film


Quick solution: force a manual rewind.
1. Remove film
2. Close camera back.
3. With the power turned on, press the two rewind buttons together. They are marked in red.
4. The camera will make a rewind sound and will stop after about 2 seconds.
5. DO NOT fire the shutter yet.
6. Put the mode on Manual and select a fast shutter speed like 1/90 sec. Any aperture will do.
7. Load the film correctly as given in the user's manual.
8. As you close the camera back, the film will prewind to the end of roll. At the end of the roll pre-wind the LCD will show you the total number of frames available.
9. Select any shooting mode.
10. Go on and take pictures.

Hope this helps

AE-1 won't cock ,shutter doesn't work


Take the bottom cover off and find the release magnet on the rewind end. There's an "L" shaped bracket that has a straight spring against it on one end and a magnet armature on the other ( under a plastic cover. Move the spring loaded end toward the front of the camera to release the magnet - the shutter should trip. If it does, install the battery and try it. If it doesn't, it has a mechanical jam and will have to go in for repair.
