This is typical of having left the multiple exposure lever set to the on position. It's fairly easy to set it accidentally and it's the small supplementary lever on the outside (right- as viewed from behind) edge of the hub of the film advance lever. See page 11 of the user manual (free download here)

If this is not your problem, then please add a follow-up comment and I'll provide other options for you. But if I have fixed your problem then plea

Nikon FM10 will only release shutter with cable


Hello Blair,
I too like old school camera, mine are the N2000, N6006, N80, and F100. First without film in the camera I would attempt to release the shutter. If it does then there is something going on with the film transfer causing a bind.

However, If it continues not to release the shutter I would put the FM10 on the shelf then go to KEH.com for another. Just now checked KEH.com, 2014-05-26, a FM10 in EX condition is $89, EX+ condition $99. That would be a much better move than repairing yours and less expensive.

No pictures on film when we take it in to be processed


If the "edge numbers" are present on the developed film it is not a processing error. Most likely the film is not advancing, film was not loaded properly of the shutter is not working.

Nikon fm10 cannot get shuuter release button to depress or film advance lever to work. is there a lock on shutter release ?


The film lever is also a switch. If you had advanced the film lever, **** it outward a little. You will feel the detent click somewhat when doing so. Leave the lever outward and see if the shutter will work. The detent is for appling an closed circuit for the light meter. When the lever is fully pushed back in it shuts the power to the meter on off to conserve battery power

My nikon fm10 film advance lever is stuck, i can't do anything with it


You may end up sacrificing the used film or you can rewind it early.
I have had it happen that the film sprocket holes had striped out causing the advance sprocket to get out of sync with the film making it ride up onto the area between sprockets and creating a jam.
If you can, rewind the film onto the feed roll to preserve the exposed portion and then remove it from the camera.
Try the film advance then with an empty camera, releasing the shutter and repeating the cycle to determine if the advance mechanism will now act as it should; if it does, then the film was probably at fault and it may never happen again.
If you cannot respool the film, I would take it to a professional photo lab and have them unload the camera in a dark room if you want to try to save the pictures already on it.

When yoo wind your film it usually sets the photo button like a trigger. Any decent camera repair can replace the trigger device that has gone bad then your back in business.

Help, my camera wont take pictures


Did you try pushing the shutter button? It may already be wound. Otherwise, try pushing the rewind button in and holding it while you wind the lever. Now, it MAY be that your at the end of the roll-what does your counter say?
