Hey mrskee,
The first suggestion I would make is to make sure your pulling the film leader out far enough, and the film canister is sitting in place properly. If this doesn't work I would examine the sprocket holes in the film leader and make sure they are not ripped if they are you should pull the film out until they are no longer ripped and then try loading the film again. I hope this helps.

Sincerely,
Allan

The new roll of film winds into the right spool upon closing back cover // brand new batteries displays 1/2 and ERR appears on led panel


Is the ERR blinking, and is there an additional blinking E on the display? If so, the film is not loaded properly.
The film is supposed to advance all the way to the take-up spool upon loading. The camera then "rewinds" one frame at a time as you take pictures. This way the camera knows exactly how many shots are left on the roll. Also, if the back is accidentally opened, the shots already taken are already in the can and won't be ruined.
If you need a manual, you may download a copy here.
Try cleaning the battery contacts and see whether the battery reads full with no film in the camera.
If problems persists, feel free to reply to this post and give any additional details.

How do i load up my film?


Turn on the main switch, then open the camera back and insert the film. Pull film leader out to the red index mark. Gently close the camera back until the lock release snaps closed. Film automatically advances to the first frame.

I have a half way through film in my Nikon F80 and I have changed the batteries. At first it wouldn't go on, there would be the error sign blinking after turning it on. I turned it on and off several times...


You can force your camera to rewind, but you will have a partially shot roll of film. If you continue to shoot your counter will be off but when the film cannot advance any more the camera will rewind.

Can't get my camera to advance the film. I put new batteries in but still nothing Is there a particular type of battery I should be using for it??


Hi Susanabbott2, As long as you are using AAA batteries, unless you have the holder for AA batteries it should advance the film. Things to look at: With the batteries in camera turned on do you see the red display in the view finder, if not there is an electrical issue, if you do see it do the following. Open the camera back make sure the leader is pulled to the red marker on the lower right. On the camera back door is there the chrome springy thingy with the little roller? If not then as you close the camera back there is nothing to place tension on the film so that the sprockets can grab the film.

My meter won't work even with new batteries?


I have Nikon EM myself and I have an issue with meter myself. First, the camera won't start metering unless your film counter is at 1 position. So, you have to advance couple of frames in order to have the camera start metering. Second, my unit will show metering information when I press the shutter half way IF I have not advanced the film to the next frame. As soon as I advance the film and ready to take the pic, the meter needle drops and won't show any information. This is caused by the aperture arm of the camera dropping a little bit from it's initial position as soon as you advance the frame. Funny thing is that the camera will continue to meter and make correct exposure, just without the information displayed.

Film rewind crank stuck in up position nikon n2000


Move it a bit (some half circle)back and forth. The slot may be in wrong position related to the roll inside. It should click in when you get the slot in right angle.

I dont know how to load my Nikon 35mm camera. I need instructions


Pull up the film rewind knob to open the back.

Drop the cartridge into the well on the left and, while rotating the rewind knob, push it back down to secure the cartridge.

Pull the leader across and insert it into any of the slots in the takeup spool.

Make sure the film perforations engage the sprocket teeth.

Alternately wind the film lever and press the shutter button until the perforations on both edges of the film engage the sprocket teeth.

Close the camera back, making sure it latches.

Take up the film slack by rotating the rewind knob in the direction of the arrow until you feel resistance.

Make blank exposures until the counter shows "1".

There's a fuller, illustrated set of instructions in the manual, which you can download from http://www.butkus.org/chinon/nikon.htm

Changing lens


Your Nikon is a SLR which stands for single lens reflex. The reflex part is the way the mirror that lets you look through the lens to frame the picture flips up to let the light go straight to the film. You can change the lens half way through the film roll because the mirror is down while you change the film and blocks light from getting to the film, just as it blocks the light until you push the shutter button. Have fun with your 'new' camera! I use an even older style Nikon FE2. I like my Nikon 55mm macro lens but your newer camera takes autofocus lenses so you'll need advice from someone else for that.
