Removing Nikon FM2N top plate

Hi,

I am trying to remove the top plate on my Nikon FM2N camera. In particular, I do not know how to remove the rewind crank but help in removing the wind-on lever and shutter speed knob would also be appreciated.

Unscrew the rewind knob and remove a circlip under it (You may need to grind the tips of a pair of round-nose pliers for this). Remove the disk and pull the rewind shaft stop off the hub (a spring and flat plate). Remove the two screws. You'll need a special tool to remove the little stud the shaft stop was pivoting on. Take a 1/8 inch screwdriver and grind a slot in the blade. Use this tool to remove the stud, then remove the three screws from the plastic cover ring.

Do not remove the center screw from the shutter speed dial. Remove three screws from the side of the dial and pull off the grip ring.

I have the same problem. An N70 with the err message. If the rewind buttons are pressed (without any film in the camera) the camera tries to rewind but will only stop if the back is opened. I tried...


The Err message alone indicates that a malfunction has been detected, and the manual recommends to fire the shutter and check for the message to clear. If it does not, to contact a Nikon Service Rep.

If it is Err + E, the film did not advance properly and needs to be reloaded.

Hi jandklandry, Sounds as though the cushion the mirror hits on the up swing is tacky thus holding the mirror up. Maybe you can yourself fix it however, I would suggest sending it to Nikon for a complete CLA (Clean Lube Adjust). You have a nice camera allow Nikon to do it proud.

My nikon fm2n shutter speeds are not working!all the speeds stay the same is it costly to get fixed?


Sorry, yes. To replace a shutter unit in that camera is quite expensive. $175+ since the part is very rare and expensive alone

Don't know how to open door latch on nikon 35mm SLR camera


You haven't stated which model you have, but generally most SLR's open by pulling upwards on the film rewind crank (the knob on the left side of the top-plate as viewed from behind). If this doesn't work then add the exact model as a comment to my answer and I'll try to give you specific instructions for your model.

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!!

Nikon FA top plate removal


After unscrewing the rewind knob, remove the circlip under it. Remove the disk and pull the rewind shaft stop off the hub (a spring and flat plate). Remove the two screws. You'll need a special tool to remove the little stud the shaft stop was pivoting on. Take a 1/8 inch screwdriver and grind a slot in the blade. Use this tool to remove the stud, then remove the three screws from the plastic cover ring.

My Minolta 7000 camera's rewind switch won't budge.


I have seen this on several of these, a small bit of plastic breaks off on the top cover and jams the rewind switch assembly.

To repair this you would have to take the top cover off and then remove the rewind swtich assembly from the top cover remove the bit of plastic and hey presto. You will find after removing the bit of plastic you will have to hold the lever to keep the camera rewinding, the lever will no longer stay in place as it used to (the bit of plastic held it in place)

Post back re Palmyman if you want to attempt this

Want to remove top plate of nikon fe


It's not very easy- you have to remove the rewind knob and dials at the left end of the cover and the speed dial and winder arm at the right side. Then the 5 small screws around the cover.
It is a delicate task because under the cover there are some very sensitive electronics. If you are determined to go ahead with it then your best bet might be to get a service manual.
