You should not have removed the screw. It sticks out for a reason. You push it down to release the top hinge of the door.

Dear Hogn8,
When you say "for the stickly problem" what do you mean? The "sticky" problem, perhaps? Please explain.
The film door on my Nikon N90 has begun deterioating (melting) and I wonder if that's why Nikon replaced your film door for you.
Best, wallah

Nikon f100 film won't advance


We will assume you know how to load the film to the red mark. If the film is not advancing a couple of things could be happening. When you close the back door it is not engaging the film to hold it against the take-up spool. If so then that needs to be fixed. The other thing to check is the left side where the film cartridge goes in, does it turn. If not it is binding the film cartridge. Nikon Film 1-800-645-6687

Camera film door will not latch. The door latch


Can it be repaired? It needs a new latch piece. Maybe a new door, if its all one piece.
I do not own one so not sure about that model. Look at the door hinge. If a small lever sticks out of the hinge, it may be easily removed and replaced with a new door. otherwise you need to remove the bottom plate of the camera to replace the door. Be very careful doing so as things could pop out when you open it.
You could also send it in to a repair shop, where they will also clean, lubricate and adjust it before returning.

Is it worth it? Only you can answer that. You might be able to pickup a used one on Ebay, so you have a source of parts.
If you have no reason to keep that particular camera, replace it with a newer Nikon, so you can keep using your flash and lenses.

Lens Error on Nikon Coolpix L3


Sometimes removing the batteries for a day may correct the problem temporarily. But the real problem is really in the lens mechanism. "Lens error"can only be repaired by Nikon or an authorized repairman. I sent mine back in Dec. 2007. It was repaired free of free of charge under the warranty. It was fixed and returned very fast.
The same problem just reoccurred and I sent it back to Nikon this very morning. They told me this is not a problem with this model, but I beg to differ. My internet search revealed that this apparently is a problem with many Nikon lens mechanisms.

"End" can be a message for "film over" or for a film jam in the cam. Did you check for this already?

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.
