Question about Nikon N55 35mm Film Camera
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

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.

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.

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

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.
