Question about Nikon N65 35mm SLR Camera
In auto mode, regardless of lens, the picture won't take; the lens zooms out and then back in, and the flask lights up, when I depress the sutter button, but the picture won't take.
Manual mode is fine. I know this is a simple adjustrment but don't know how to fix it
Snoopytwo, jmv23 & guests,
Sounds like you have been taking photos in both auto & manual modes, make sure your f-stop is set at the range it needs to be to allow enough light for the camera to take the photo. Since the lens and the camera communicate, if the lens is closed down & not allowing enough light the camera will not take the photo - does that make sense - Look at the metering in auto mode and see what the camera says the conditions are for a specific lighting condition check to see if the lens has a aperture position for Auto, usually a dot on the lens ring to align with a setting in red or green (likely a F-22) depending on the make of lens, that has been moved to some place in the middle and not returned while trying other manual settings so the shutter won't release because the camera is told by the lens there is not enough light or slow enough shutter to take this picture.
