On the bottom of the Nikon FE, there is a silver button to push in, and this releases a lock for the film.
Then on the left side, on the top, there is a white arrow and a silver lever tucked in. Wind your film, this it's all the way back in the canister. Then the black lever by the speed film (ASO) numbers, pull that back toward you. This will release the black 3/4" knob upward, and by gently pulling this upward, your door will release and the film canister will be allowed to come out. Just besure to wind your film back in the cansiter, before you open the door, or your photos will be over exposed. Best to do this in a darker area or shaddowed area, just for protection.
Good Luck. I've had mine since the mid 1970's and love it for double exposures and the special filters I have for it. The Hot Shoe for the flash attachment, just burned out on me a couple of days ago.

I'm checking for an online manual, but I can tell you how to open the film door. Under the rewind knob on the left side, there is a small black tab sticking out of a disk. Move the tab and lift the rewind knob up. The film door should open.

When was my nikon fe made?


Nikon produced the FE from 1978 to 1983.

If you're asking when a particular FE was made, you'll have to provide the serial number.

Can't find manual for instructions Nikon N55


If you want to rewind manually, you need to press two buttons simultanously. Turn the power on. First, hold "BKT" button just above lens release knob then press the button "+/1" just next to the shutter release. Both button will have red rewind sign next to them. -James

YES, THE PROBABLE CAUSE IS THAT AFTER 25 YEARS OF USE YOUR POOR NIKON PROBABLY JUST NEEDS A GOOD CLEANING! I DON'T THINK IT IS ANYTHING A GOOD CLEANING CAN'T CURE. I HAVE INCLUDED A COUPLE OF SHOPS THAT REPAIR NIKONS AND GIVE FREE ESTIMATES. WHILE I DON'T ENDORSE ANY REPAIR SHOP PERSONNALLY, I PASS THESE ALONG FOR YOUR INFORMATION. I HOPE THIS HELPS. I REALLY BELIEVE THIS WILL TAKE CARE OF YOUR PROBLEMS. ALSO, BY THE WAY, I ALSO HAVE A NIKON FE AND IT'S A GREAT CAMERA. ENJOY!

TRy firing the camera in the M90 setting. If it fires properly, use the battery test switch. If the battery LED doesn't light up, replace the batteries (2 MS76 type). The FE requires healthy batteries to operate the shutter. If the meter is calling for a slow shutter speed (low light or lens cap still on?). If the batteries are good, but the shutter still won't fire normally in sufficient light, looks like you're in for a repair shop visit.

Loading batteries


Most Nikon manual focus cameras I see have the same battery chamber, and their battery loading procedure are exactly the same. Use a coin to unscrew the battery chamber at the buttom, the batteries should be instered into the battery holder (the unscrewed part) , with negative end goes in first. Also refer to the battery insertion direction on the side of the plastic part of the battery holder you will find it :)
