Mary, Sorry for your loss. The camera and lens are maybe worth 50-60 dollars. eBay would be the best place to sell. craigslist.org is also another place to sell, and they are free. High school and college students are usually looking for older film cameras too

How to use Nikon Pk-3 extension tube?


It should work with just about any lens, though it works best with moderate focal lengths (say about 24mm to 200mm). Its primary purpose is to let the lens focus much closer than normal.

When you say "no results," do you mean it's not letting you focus closer? Mount the tube on the camera, mount a lens on the tube, then focus the lens to its minimum focus distance. Looking through the viewfinder, move closer to an object until it comes into focus. Does it come into focus? How close? What lens(es) are you trying?

I have a Nikon F601 and I put a 400 iso film recently and I sort of didnt know how to load it on properly so I pressed the shutter release button as I loaded it twice when youre only suppose to press it...


Remove the lense, or the film if you're willing to waste it, and check to be sure the shutter blades aren't damaged. It'll be fairly evident if they are. If they are, the camera is pretty much now a paperweight. I hate to tell you that - but shutter replacements are VERY expensive and parts for most of these models no longer available from Nikon.

If that is not the issue, set the mode dial to M and try to take a shot. If that also doesn't work, either the batteries are exhausted or there is an internal issue in the camera. At this point, try new batteries. If that also gets you nowhere, you'll need to seek a reputable service tech, either through Nikon directly, locally if you can find one, or online/mail-order. If you have to go mail-order/online I'd recommend KEH Camera out of Atlanta, GA. They are very reasonable, have decent turn around, and do good work - but expect at least 1 month without your camera.

In M(anual) mode, be sure the lense is also set to M, via the switch on the front of the camera near the lense mount. You're not worrying about the quality of the image, only if the camera will take one. In manual mode, the light meter and other functions will have NO bearing on anything the camera does or doesn't do. At this point the meter reads out only for your information for you to set the settings yourself. The batteries do everything else - firing the shutter, driving the motor, etc.

I have a Nikon N65 camera that I have not used in a year or so I put new battery in the camera and it would not come on at all,tried several other batteries and still no go, I am confused so could you...


Cameras are a "use it or lose it" device, especially old ones like your N65.

It's most likely that the internal lubricant films have dried out and gummed up due to lack of use. On older mechanically operated models it's sometimes possible to free things off by leaving the camera in a very warm place for a good few hours and then gently forcing the controls against the softened grease or even by banging the camera against a firm surface. You have almost none of those options on the N65: it's an autofocus model with electronic controls, and the all plastic construction won't stand up to abuse. The only thing you can try is to leave it in a warm place and then try turning it on.

Camera servicing could solve the problem, but your camera is a consumer grade model designed for a five to six year maximum lifespan and was never intended to be serviced. The cost of servicing far exceeds the residual value of your N65 body (just a few dollars).

If you cannot get your camera working then it's time to bid it farewell. The good news is that the worthlessness of many 35mm SLR bodies (and many lenses) makes them easy to obtain for free/cheap. I've had dozens of them over the last few years from friends, neighbours and relatives just by asking and most of them have come from total strangers via my local FreeCycle and Freegle groups. On one day alone last year I picked up a boxed and virtually unused F75 (N75 in USA) with the 28-100mm kit lens and a freshly serviced Nikon N8008 with a Sigma 24mm AF and a Nikkor 300mm. Everything worked perfectly once i replaced the batteries. A week later I collected an Olympus OM1n kit for free and was offered an Olympus Pen FT plus lenses for just £10 (worth well over £200). None of this is intended as a boast, it's just to illustrate that you can get superb and possibly upgrade quality replacements for just the cost of fuel mileage and a set of batteries.

Good luck, I hope you manage to use this information to fix your camera, or at least are able to use the information to help decide whether to replace it with another.

Mirror locked up on Nikon F75


Try pressing and releasing the shutter button. If that doesn't do anything, then turn the camera off and on and press and release the shutter button. If that still doesn't do anything, then turn the camera off, remove and reinsert the batteries (or a fresh set, if readily available), turn the camera on, and press and release the shutter button.

I ran across a Nikon N80 last week which hadn't been used for many moons. I tried the shutter and the mirror promptly locked up. It took about half a dozen tries, but the mirror eventually shook loose or whatever, and the camera now works perfectly.

If the above procedure doesn't do it, then you may have to take it in to a good camera shop for a CLA (clean-lubricate-adjust), the camera equivalent of an automobile tune-up.

I have a Nikon FE2 and i switched the lense out from a normal lense to a macro lense, when i shot the picture my went black. so i switch the detachable lense back to the normal lense and its still black!


have you tries changing the battery in the camera. if you try to take a photo with a dead battery it will lock the mirror up. If changing the battery doesn't make the mirror release turn the shutter speed dial to "B" and that should release the mirror

Cant get power to Nikon N2000


I would try some CLR on the end of a Q tip and scrub down all of the contact points to clean off any corrosion. Then I'd use the eraser end of a pencial and remove any last bits of residue. Then reinstall batteries and try it. If iyt still doesn't work, then it is not a cost effective fix. You can get a replacement used, working N2000 (or F-301...its the same camera) on eBay for no more than $25.

"End" can be a message for "film over" or for a film jam in the cam. Did you check for this already?

Problem with nikon n55


What lens are you using? Do you have other lenses you can try?

The F-- indicates that the camera and the lens are not communicating. There are several reasons for this:

1. The lens is not electronic. All lenses before the advent of autofocus fall into this category, as well as some of the newer ones. The only way these lenses can be used is in Manual (M) mode, without any assistance from the camera's light meter.

2. The lens has a locking aperture ring. In this case turn the aperture ring to the smallest aperture (largest f/number) and lock it. You control the aperture via the command dial on the camera body.

3. The contacts are dirty. Remove the lens, clean the contacts on the back of the lens and on the mount, then reattach the lens and see what happens.

4. The lens and/or camera body needs service.
