Just found this post, so you might already have one, but have you tried eBay? I got one on there for just £8 sterling (around $15 US) and when it arrived it was in almost new condition. The guy even threw in 6 rechargeable cells, which looked new (and I'm still using them) which must have been worth the £8 I paid him, without the MD21!

Good luck.

I have always found Nikon to be extremely good with spare parts.

Have you gone to a camera store and asked them to order in a replacement battery holder? This will not be an "on the shelf" item. The camera is 20 odd years old, after all! but I suspect that (after a long wait) you should get your part.

If the camera store will not order in the part, try contacting Nikon direct.

Good luck.

1Nikon F4S problem: R1 manual rewind will not unlock when the button is pressed

Possible causes: 1) low batteries, replace with new ones 2) bad switches - clean and retry 3) bad gears in the rewind (common problem on early model F4s. As Nikon quit selling parts over a year ago, if Nikon does not repair these any more, try one of their ASC repair stations as they may still have parts

Nikon F4 - how to replace the shutter

try and find a copy of the Jan/Feb 1993 SPT Journal (try Ebay) which covers this repair, or look for a copy of the Nikon repair manual. If you are not good at small item repair and soldering take it to a professional. Also use a anti-static work mat and wrist strap.

Nikon F4 - shutter replacement

Hi Miguel,
It would be better to send it to Nikon. For mere mortals swapping shutters may very much mess up the camera beyond repair. If you truly love the F4 have Nikon do the work and at the same time have them do a CLA as well.

I can't seem to get the display to light up,when exp meter is turned on.Bottom values do not display bright.Do I have to have film loaded so those values will light up?I have an F4s.

I got a download of the service manual.and discovered a small slide switch,by the manual shutter knob.

I turned it to the right and now the display lights up fully.

F4s film rewind problem

Hey mikki1,
One reason this might be happening is the multiple exposure lever is stuck to the select position which would not allow the film to advance. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.

F4 has an electronic shutter so check batteries ( see enclosed image ). If your batteries are fresh but still no power ( see if display comes on in view finder ) clean contacts in the battery holder. If still no joy camera should go in.5abb190.jpg
