Question about Nikon Pronea S 35mm SLR Camera
Thanks for the clarification.
Unfortunately there's nothing you can do to fix the fault described. It's definitely either an electronic or mechanical fault (most likely electronic) and like all APS film cameras would be difficult and expensive to repair IF spare parts were available.
There are NO spare parts available for your camera, nor for many other APS models which I'm aware of. The whole APS concept was very poorly engineered and even the high end models such as the Nikon Pronea SLR's were very cheaply built with an intended lifespan of no more than around three to four years. That's why you see hardly any functional APS cameras any more.
Although your camera is unrepairable junk, the good news is that you can usually get far superior (in terms of build and image quality) 35mm autofocus SLR cameras for free or at least very cheaply now. They don't have the "panoramic" mode which your camera has, but as that was achieved solely by masking the top and bottom of a standard APS negative it's easy enough to replicate on a 35mm print by just trimming the top and bottom of the photo off.
If you want to look for free autofocus 35mm SLR cameras and lenses then I suggest that you join your local FreeCycle and Freegle groups. I've had dozens of excellent cameras this way and although I own and use all of the major SLR brands I've only ever paid for a tiny fraction of what I have.
