Nikon N80 Shutter? Issue

Several prints I have made after using my N80 have had bright white along the edges, I know the two enlargers I am using are fine, would this indicate an issue with my shutter?

    Yes, the edges are slightly darker, but upon printing the exposure is quite obviously different. I am assuming that the top and bottom of the shutter may be leaking slightly?

    dear ben505,



    When you look at the film are the edges of the film darker where the white shows up on the prints?

Dear ben505,
This could be due to the shutter leaking light from the top or bottom, and it could also be caused by light leaking in through the camera back. The most common cause of edge fogging is light leaking in through the film canister, which happens over time if the unused film is not stored properly. If this is a high ISO film(400 and up) and you load your film into the camera in a very bright enviroment that can also cause film fogging. Try a brand new roll of film and if that doesn't resolve the problem I would have it looked at by a camera service technician.

Sincerely,
Agent Allan

Nikon N80 takes one shot, then needs abt 10 sec cooldown


If your batteries are fresh ( have seen flat new ones older stock) and are using alkalines then I would think you have a connector problem. Can you check and clean the connectiosn inside the grip and on the camera body. I've also seen dirty lens contacts and even a sticky shutter cause this. It's usually not serious just rather annoyng until you find it.

Mirror locked up on Nikon F75


Try pressing and releasing the shutter button. If that doesn't do anything, then turn the camera off and on and press and release the shutter button. If that still doesn't do anything, then turn the camera off, remove and reinsert the batteries (or a fresh set, if readily available), turn the camera on, and press and release the shutter button.

I ran across a Nikon N80 last week which hadn't been used for many moons. I tried the shutter and the mirror promptly locked up. It took about half a dozen tries, but the mirror eventually shook loose or whatever, and the camera now works perfectly.

If the above procedure doesn't do it, then you may have to take it in to a good camera shop for a CLA (clean-lubricate-adjust), the camera equivalent of an automobile tune-up.

Don't know how to rewind film


Hi there.
The film should auto rewind when it reaches the last picture and its been taken.
Take a look in the camera's menu.


Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Problem with print


It sounds like your shutter may be failing.

The N80 has a vertical travel focal plane shutter. This is essentially two curtains that travel across the film plane. At lower shutter speeds, one curtain opens up the shurter, you wait, then the next one travels across, stopping the exposure. At faster speeds, though, they both move together, leaving a small gap between them to let light through.

If the first shutter curtain isn't always making it all the way to the top, this could give you just what you're seeing -- a black band across the top of the photo. One blank negative may well indicate that your shutter failed completely on that shot.

This is something best handled by a camera repair shop. It could possibly just be some dirt in the shutter mechanism, which would be fixed by a good CLA (clean, lube, adjust) ... that's no a bad idea if it's an older camera anyway. However, it could be more than that. It won't be clear which without getting down into the camera itself.

N80 Help


You can only change the aperture using the command/sub-command dial on your camera.  The aperture ring on the camera must remain locked at the smallest setting (largest number).
