N55 Shutter Problem

Hi. I am having problems with the last few rolls of film that was developed from my N55 NIkon Camera. NO Pictures developed. I believe it is the shutter because when I open the back of the camera, (where you load the film) the black stips look like I may of stuck my finger in when loading a roll of film. How can I straighten this out without having to send it away for months. I am getting married in May and need to get it fixed ASAP
Thanks for your help

    Relax, May is eleven months away. Replacement may be a cheaper option than repair, especially as the camera is now nearing ten years old.

If the shutter blades get bent they are hard to straighten out. Better to find a local repairman or you could do more damage to the shutter. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

SOURCE: Camera turns off

Open the file door and check to see if the shutter blades look uneven, like they might have been pushed out of track. Sometimes it's simple to re-track them - other times it'll have to go to a repair shop. Another cause is the film motor wears out and has to be replaced - a job for the repair shop.

SOURCE: Film advance lever and shutter release button are "stuck"

No, it is not the battery. My guess is that the film leader did not stay in the take-up spool and is now bunched up around it. Try rewinding the film carefully as you normally would but remember that you are only rewinding a small portion of the length. You can even just open the film door and start over. You will only loose 3 or 4 frames on the roll.

SOURCE: Canon AE1 Shutter Problem

It could be a simple issue with the shutter magnets, or something more severe with the electronics. What does the meter needle do when you push the shutter release down? With the speed dial set at 1/125 or higher and no lens, the needle should move fairly high. If it pegs to the bottom right away, that is a bad sign.

You can check the magnets from the bottom with the cover removed. (2 screws) You can release the mechanicals of the shutter by pushing the silver lever arm (located next to the plastic shield around the magnet on the rewind side of the camera) toward the front of the camera. Be mindful of the spring attached

SOURCE: my nikon n55 is flashing err after installing new film

It could be that your camera doesn't know it's rewound the film already. With the camera turned on, push and hold BOTH manual rewind buttons simultaneously - one near the release button ( +/- ) and the other toward the front of the camera at the lens release button. Try the release button again.

Nikon fm10 35mm SLR developed pictures turn out white


That sounds like your shutter isn't opening. take the lens of and set the shutter speed to B this should keep the shutter open as long as the release is pushed down. advance one frame and hold down the shutter release while looking at the opening where the lens should be. If the shutter opens you will hear it and see the back plane where the film would sit to be exposed. I expect your shutter won't open.

Good luck

2 rolls out of a 3-pack ruined.


I would suggest you buy an off-brand roll of 12 or 24 exposures. Run it through the camera taking snaps of anything -- but make sure you vary the lighting, ISO, shutter speed, aperture, etc. as you snap the pics. Don't worry too much about composition. This roll is a quick test, NOT for photos to keep.

Have the film developed and then follow-up with comments on the results. I'll gladly assist you further at that time.

Nikon N55 Won't take picture in Auto Focus Mode?


There was a recall on the N55 due to auto focus problems. You can do a google search or nikon.com email the support team and they will send you the paper. This is what I did, I wasn't charged since I had the correct papers. I, however, used one roll of film and my focus went out again! Mine doesn't even work on manual... If you want to try that maybe you will hae better luck than me. GOOD LUCK!

Film doesn't develop


check your camer without film:

1). open the back, use different combinations of film speeds, shutter speeds and apartures. if you can see light coming in from the lens, no matter how little light and how fast.
2). check that film advances or not. if you camera detects film and loads automatically, insert any expired film cassette, or badly developed film and roll it back into cassette.
3). send it for service if either one or both gives you an answer of "N".

Developing pictures


depending on the type of film you are using and where you are taking it could be the problem. if you are using professional film and taking it to a pharmacy to get developed, the chemicals used at these places will erase the images off the film and appear as if the film is blank.

Bad picture developing


Since this happened on two seperate rolls of film, the problem may be that the shutter blades have been bent out of place.  This can cause the symptoms you describe.  Have a qualified technician look at the shutter.  Usually the blades can be reset.  In bad cases the blades may be bent or creased. If this is the case, the shutter may need to be replaced.

Camera Rewinds New Roll of Film


Check the camera and the manual to see if there is a control to override the auto rewind; it may be set to rewind. Other than that, check Mikon's website for support info.
