    What happens when you pull back partway on the film advance lever and press the shutter release button? Does the film advance lever pull back at all?

    If you have film in the camera, you may have to sacrifice the roll. Open up the back and see if there are any obvious obstructions. Does the rewind knob pull up after you release the catch?

How do i advance the film to the next frame in my Nikon N65


The Nikon N65 has a built-in film advance (power winder) so all you need to do is take a photo and it should advance. If no, the film isn't loaded properly or the drive is broken.

After i've finished my photographic film (a 36 exposure rolls by Tokina), when I want to rewind it (counterclockwise direction), the lever starts to unscrew (because it is counterclockwise). What can i do...


on my nikons you crank it in a clockwise direction when looking down onto the top of the camera. yes, if you turn it the other way the handle on top will unscrew from the shaft. make sure you have pushed the small button on the bottom of the camera, it is the film rewind release, it allows the wind mechanism to go backwards to unload the film

Nikon FE film winder jammed.


Is it the viewfinder or the film advance lever? If the viewfinder is not showing any image and the shutter is not getting released, then it could be a problem with the mirror box.To confirm, remove the lens and see if it gets released. To align the lens, you have to take it to the nearest service center (or repair shop).

Film winder is loose and meter is not accurate.


It is absolutely OK, my dad too has one (not older than urs). make it tighter, but u need some screws drivers (specially for cameras). Open the camera and tighten the screw holding the winder arm. Try this only if u have experience otherwise u may end up with a scramble of camera. About the F-Stop, i have no idea why this is so... might be the technology is gone too advanced compared to the 1978.

Nikon FE- Winder return position


YES, THE PROBABLE CAUSE IS THAT AFTER 25 YEARS OF USE YOUR POOR NIKON PROBABLY JUST NEEDS A GOOD CLEANING! I DON'T THINK IT IS ANYTHING A GOOD CLEANING CAN'T CURE. I HAVE INCLUDED A COUPLE OF SHOPS THAT REPAIR NIKONS AND GIVE FREE ESTIMATES. WHILE I DON'T ENDORSE ANY REPAIR SHOP PERSONNALLY, I PASS THESE ALONG FOR YOUR INFORMATION. I HOPE THIS HELPS.

CAN WORKOUT HOW TO OPEN NIKON FE CAMERA


Sept 19th, 2008
On the bottom of the Nikon FE, there is a silver button to push in, and this releases a lock for the film.
Then on the left side, on the top, there is a white arrow and a silver lever tucked in. Wind your film, this it's all the way back in the canister. Then the black lever by the speed film (ASO) numbers, pull that back toward you. This will release the black 3/4" knob upward, and by gently pulling this upward, your door will release and the film canister will be allowed to come out. Just besure to wind your film back in the cansiter, before you open the door, or your photos will be over exposed. Best to do this in a darker area or shaddowed area, just for protection.
Good Luck. I've had mine since the mid 1970's and love it for double exposures and the special filters I have for it. The Hot Shoe for the flash attachment, just burned out on me a couple of days ago.
