I would take it to a specialist dealer.
It's probably not really old enough to be considered highly collectable, but it is collectable. Especially if you have any of the original documentation, instruction manual, bill of sale and so on. 37 years is a reasonable age and that puts it in the first of the modern style slr group. I would avoid any High Street chain or department store. Half the people who work in those outlets won't have a clue what it is unles it has an LCD on the back. Look for an independent long established shop.

Another long shot would be to search eBay but putting in the full model number and see if anyone has sold or is selling one

Hope this helps...

Nikkormat 35mm SLR light meter not working!


1) Clean the battery contacts and put fresh battery.
2) Open the top cover and clean the meter switch ( located and the wind cam )
3) Meter needle maybe stuck at the rest position. Remove the stopper and replace or clean.
4) If none of these help, check the meter cells and resistor band under the shutter dial behind the lens mount ( hard to do.)

Canon EOS Rebel S taking bad pictures


Your camera has a faulty shutter or shutter timer.

Given that you can buy a perfectly good Rebel S for anywhere between £1 to £25 on Ebay it's not economical to repair it.

Aoutofocus stopped working


Start off with the simple things, does it work with another lens, is the AF/M switch in the correct postion for autofocus (AF), are the batteries good.

If all of the above are in order it maybe either the DC/DC converter on the bottom of the camera, this supplies power to various parts of the circuit. or it could be the motor drive transistors, these are located under the front cover and are located where you finger tips rest on the right hand side as you hold the camera.

Both these items are not really user changeable and I know the DC/DC units have not been available new for many years now.

I suggest you have a look for a friendly camera repair shop to pin point the exact cause.

You will have to keep in mind the age of the camera 23 years old parts are a big issue

Eats batteries like thers no end !


Hello davidpritchie,  As I recall, this was Pentax's way of mating electronics with mechanical cameras and the success rate was quite good. The only problem with the Pentax Super Program was the rather complex electronic circuit board. Your canera could have a short, bad condensers, bad on-off switch, etc. You would need to do a circuit check from batteries to every electronic component using battery power. Wow - really expensive and time-consuming = complete stripdown and repair. The camera is over approximately 30 years old making it a classic. It is no longer in production meaning parts need to be cannabalized from another old non-working Pentax Super Program. The cost of repair would exceed the value of the camera. Look for another good used model or move on to a Pentax DSLR (digital SLR) camera as your tool. Sorry I couldn't give you a better answer on how to fix your problem.

Nikkormat FT


I have a Nikkormat FT, and I can assure you that there is no "timer" button on this camera. There is, however, a timer lever to the left of the lens if you are looking at the front of the camera. As for the light meter, have you tried moving the film advance lever to the "cocked" position, since that turns on the meter.

Nikon F4s battery holder


I have always found Nikon to be extremely good with spare parts.

Have you gone to a camera store and asked them to order in a replacement battery holder? This will not be an "on the shelf" item. The camera is 20 odd years old, after all! but I suspect that (after a long wait) you should get your part.

If the camera store will not order in the part, try contacting Nikon direct.

Good luck.
