Question about Cameras
My 30-year-old Nikon FG suddenly ceased working on Friday. Film wouldn't advance, mirror wouldn't close, and, though the film rewound (I thought best to get it out) and the button pressed to open the camera back, the button would not pop back out when back closed; and when I tried putting in a new role of film, I could not advance the spool to put it in. I tried new batteries and also cleaned the connecting plates/tabs that the batteries touch, which I thought would solve this, but it made no difference. Camera has worked for decades--only problem previously is that, for the past five years, the film counter starts at 14 instead of 1. Help!
Havin the same problem with a FG i got my hands on, apparently switchin to M90 on the shutter speed dial will release the shutter.
Then its a case of replacing the batteries- haven't got that far myself mind, a job for tomorrow.
There's a post here about it
