Question about Nikon FE 35mm SLR Camera
For the FE try turning the speed dial to M90. Sometimes FEs get hung up when you try shooting at speeds of 1/500 or 1/1000. If you fire off a few without film at at those speeds it should free them up. You might have to keep turning back to M90 until it frees..
Not sure if the F3 can be cured the same way but try activating the manual shutter release (the little lever to the lower right of the lens.

I have the same problem with a Nikon F2, got it off my grandfather and its been in his attic for at least the last 10 years. I don't know if parts have seized up or if im doing something wrong. have put in new batteries, but film advance lever won't go past "on" position. have tried pressing shutter but it doesn't help. Also film winding knob will not lift up enough to load in a film! any solutions!?
