I have a Nikon F601 and I put a 400 iso film recently and I sort of didnt know how to load it on properly so I pressed the shutter release button as I loaded it twice when youre only suppose to press it...


Remove the lense, or the film if you're willing to waste it, and check to be sure the shutter blades aren't damaged. It'll be fairly evident if they are. If they are, the camera is pretty much now a paperweight. I hate to tell you that - but shutter replacements are VERY expensive and parts for most of these models no longer available from Nikon.

If that is not the issue, set the mode dial to M and try to take a shot. If that also doesn't work, either the batteries are exhausted or there is an internal issue in the camera. At this point, try new batteries. If that also gets you nowhere, you'll need to seek a reputable service tech, either through Nikon directly, locally if you can find one, or online/mail-order. If you have to go mail-order/online I'd recommend KEH Camera out of Atlanta, GA. They are very reasonable, have decent turn around, and do good work - but expect at least 1 month without your camera.

In M(anual) mode, be sure the lense is also set to M, via the switch on the front of the camera near the lense mount. You're not worrying about the quality of the image, only if the camera will take one. In manual mode, the light meter and other functions will have NO bearing on anything the camera does or doesn't do. At this point the meter reads out only for your information for you to set the settings yourself. The batteries do everything else - firing the shutter, driving the motor, etc.

Mamiya 645 ADF viewfinder/meter issues...


You likely have a defective display module, probably with a dead back-light. Try putting a newly charged battery in it, but if the problem persists, you'll need to send it in for service.

Fungus in the lens


These lenses arn't designed to be taken apart.

A camera specialist may help but they should alwys be kept dry and at room temp never warm and humid. Silicate gel in your storage bag also prevents this from happening.

Good luck

Mamiya 645 Super mirror locked in open position


My mirror somehow got stuck open too, I removed the power winder and grasped the pins in the middle of the silver wheel underneath used to wind the camera. Turn this clockwise until it stops and shutter is completely closed. Test fire camera after. If it doesn't work make sure you wound it all the way.

Hi i have f80 camera film and the lense it doesnt work,cose it fall dawn,so how can i fixe it or if u have one to buy it how much the cost for that ?thank you


Your question is in the title so I cant see your whole question. so I hope this helps.
Im going to guess your lens is not Auto Focusing?
Then First I would make sure the switch on th side is set af for auto focus. then I would check the connection. take the lens off and then reconnect it and make sure you feel or hear it click. if that doesnt work try changing the batteries even if the battery meter says they are good. Sometime the battery meter will get stuck.


I hope that was you question.
If not then contact me and I will answer your other question,

Mamiya RZ67 Camera Older model.


Problem solved- The camera does not operate correctly unless the battery is in good condition, in place, and all the contacts are clean. In the RZ76 as opposed to the old RB models the components "talk" to each other: via electronic circuits. The back "tells" the camera bod if the dark slide ins in or out and whether the film is loaded or at the end of the roll. If the batter voltage is too low or the contacts are no clean and making full contact the body has no way of knowing the condition of the film backs and the interlocking mechanisms fail to work.

What I did was firstly test the battery under load and discovered that the cell was a bit low. It was a fresh battery but it is a good idea to turn the camera off after shooting in case the is a slight current draw when the camera is idle (?) . I replaced the battery and traced the voltages through the body to see if it was getting to some of the contacts such as the onces on the meter prism which has LEDs to be lighted. I also used an ohm meter to check out continuity- everything seemed to be in order. I then cleaned all the contacts including the battery terminals withl alcohol and made sure everything was dry and clean.

Now- everything works. The camera was turned off overnight and the battery has lost no voltage when tested under load..

This camera is equipped with RB lenses which have no electrical contacts and therefore the camera and lenses can't "communicate" so the meter will not work with theses older lenses.
