Just put new batteries in. No film. I looked at the view finder and snapped a pic then the screen went black. I took the lens off and the mirror is sideways.

You have two main possibilities. The new batteries are incorrectly inserted or the batteries are faulty.

If not those, then it's a camera fault (it's definitely faulty if the mirror is actually sideways and not merely halfway up) and as you can get N75's for free these days (my last two have been boxed and nearly unused from FreeCycle) then it's simply uneconomical to repair it unless the mirror can simply be removed and correctly re-fastened. Spare parts availability is already very poor for the n75.

When i press the button to snap a shot, nothing happens. when I look through the view finder I only see black. I also can not advance the film. I put in new batteries and (yes) the lens cap is off.


Set camera to M90 or B, it will free the shutter. If if fires at these settings but not others then you have an electronic problem. If it does not fire at M90 or B then you have a mechanical problem. Clean the battery cap with a hard eraser and make sure the batteries are in correctly - does the battery check work? Also check to make sure that the battery compartment is not broken. Using a thin round tool, insert it into the battery compartment and push down slightly (not Hard!) and see if the battery compartment gives or you see a crank. Also check for impact around the rewind knob. The FRE resister plate there is made of glass and impact breaks it.

When I turn on my Canon PC 1130 to take a picture, the lcd screen and view finder just show a black screen. Camera is working fine in the play mode. Please help.


Set the camera in TV mode, (delayed shutter mode) set the shutter at 15 sec, click to take a picture and during that 15 secs (like, after 7 seconds) open the battery compartment which cuts contact with the battery circuit. Close the battery cover. At this point the camera works fine ... but only temporarily.... Here is the key to the permanent fix. While the camera is working via the temporary fix, take many, many pictures. Hundreds! I probably snapped 400-600 pics. The idea is to wear down the little patches of hardened oil on the shutter blades. For the next three days I took hundreds of pics each day. Basically, I just aimed the camera at the wall or whatever and snapped off several hundred pics.

The view finder is black, how can I clear it?


It sounds like the mirror is stuck up! You can check this if you remove the lens and look at the mirror. If it is horizontal and all you can see is the film plane (black box), then it is stuck up. If you are lucky, your camera may just need new batteries. Worth a check too that the shutter speed is not set to "B" and the lens cap is left on. If the camera has sat for more than about 6 months, the batteries will definitely be dead.

Mirror isn't staying down


That camera is going to have to be sent to a repair facility for repair. It has a major problem with the shutter or mirror box mechanism.

No view through view finder or screen but it records just black


If this a digital SLR- the shutter mirror is locked up. This happens in regular film cameras too. You might be able to fix it by simply removing the lens and putting it back on. Otherwise just take it to the nearest camera store (one that only sells cameras) and they may be able to fix it for you. No more info is available until I know the make and model of your camera.

Check your mirror lock up switch. This function is used for long exposures locking the mirror in the up position to reduce vibration before the shutter is released, but you will not be able to use the view finder.
