Question about Cameras

1 Answer

Hi my name is Regan. I'm having a problem with my Nikon N50 35mm SLR camera. When i look through the viewfinder it is black. All i can see is the light meter. Then when i push the shutter button the screen reads ERR. I am not too sure what could have gone wrong when i loaded the film today, but i need my camera for a project I'm working on. Please get back to me soon. Thank you.

I have a d800 and have a fully charged official Nikon battery in the camera but the information in the viewfinder which should be in green along the bottom is not showing. I have no idea why.


Is it possibly a menu setting which has inadvertently been changed?
There is also another response on this forum dealing with batteries which have been recalled - has this any relevance in your situation ?

Nikon digital SLR LCD viewfinder


No. The D60's LCD is used for menus, shooting settings, and reviewing pictures after you take them. You have to use the viewfinder to compose your pictures. Nikon introduced the LiveView capability into their DSLRs with the D3 and the D300, introduced after the D60.

Hi, I have inherited by dad's old Nikon FM camera - well I think it's a FM! It has not been used for centuries and I was able to take one picture before it the view screen went black. I have taken...


The mirror has locked up, blacking out the viewfinder. Mirror lock up is usually due to flat batteries, so replace them as soon as possible. Extended lock up is bad for the camera.

The FM uses a pair of SR44 batteries, you can use the cheaper LR44's but the voltage characteristics are different and exposures will be a little off, but if you're using print film then you're unlikely to notice any problem.

The batteries are very widely available, the link I've provided is for the mail order supplier I use in the UK. Even if the supplier is of no use to you the information they provide shows you most of the other names that the identical batteries are sold as by various manufacturers.

If new batteries don't fix it then the camera is effectively beyond economic repair.

Take the lens off the camera and look inside. you should see a mirror angled at 45 degrees. If you do not see the mirrir, it is probably stuck in the up position and repair is necessary

There's a diopter adjustment control near the viewfinder. Adjust it while peering through the viewfinder to adjust it for your eye.

Viewfinder eyepiece is black,(no objects can be seen)


Your mirror is probably stuck in the upward position. If so, your camera will need servicing.

Not sure if the battery has ran or not but i can see through the viewfinder of my camera anymore its just black.


Hi thomasprinks, It may be the mirror is in the up position. Remove the lens see if you see a mirror or the shutter. If the mirror is up it may be stuck to the top of the film box. Those areas sometimes become tacky holding on to the mirror. You could remove the batteries to see if the mirror will fall into place.

Looking through my F3HP viewfinder, the window


what lens is mounted? the lcd is lighted through the "white glass" just below the on (of Nikon). If a large (thick) lens is mounted, this might block the light from shining through this window?

Nikon N65 broken status window pane


kumar1177,
It won't affect you pictures and it is more an aestheric thing so if you can live with it do so. If you want it repaced a reputable camera shop or Nikon can replace the cracked viewfinder, get an estimate first since that work will most likely have to be done by the shop or Nikon.
