Re: hoe do i set different speeds
In S and M modes you control the shutter speed directly by turning the command dial on the back of the camera. In A mode the dial controls the aperture which indirectly affects the shutter speed. In P mode the dial shifts the exposure to another equivalent exposure, which also changes the shutter speed.

You can't. If the film cartridge has the DX markings then the camera will automatically set it to the correct speed. Without the DX markings the camera goes to ISO 100. You can adjust this by using exposure compensation. For example, if you have ISO 200 film loaded without the DX markings, set the exposure compensation to -1.0 and you will get the proper exposure.
Your camera is either fully automatic or fully manual. In addition it has shutter priority and aperture priority semi-automatic functions. With shutter prior. you pick the shutter speed you prefer and the camera will adjust the aperture. With Aperture prior it works the other way around. The exposure will be always the optimum (decided by the camera program). You can adjust these automatics with the program dial.
Press the self-timer button just to the right of the LCD panel and confirm that the self-timer icon appears. Press the shutter release halfway to focus and meter. Press the shutter the rest of the way to activate.To cancel, either turn the camera off or press the self-timer button until the self-timer icon disappears.
You can get a manual at http://www.butkus.org/chinon/nikon.htm
When you set the camera to "Full Manual" mode, you should be able to dial in your shutter speeds, for most film cameras, including the N55 30 Seconds is the slowest shutter speed. If your camera features a "Bulb" mode, then the shutter stays open as long as you are holding down the shutter release button.
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
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".
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.
