On all of that series of Nikon SLRs, there is a small black plastic tab under the rewind handle on the left side of the camera. (as looking from the back). The tab needs to be pushed lightly and that will release the rewind shaft so you can pull up on the rewind knob to open the film door.

more info can be found here on Fixya

The FE2/FM2 are very similar in operations and function

My FA camera shutter release button won't work, no reaction when depressed and look through the view finder was dark.


The dark viewfinder usually means that the battery must be replaced as the mirror has fully or partially locked up. A new battery usually fixes this instantly. The stuck shutter release can also be due to a failed battery or is due to the shutter lock being engaged. The lock is disengaged by pulling the film advance lever back slightly.

You can download free instructions for your camera courtesy or the Norman Butkus website; if you find his information useful then consider making a donation as he suggests toward his site running costs.

The battery is either two SR44's or LR44's, the latter are cheaper but give less accurate exposures due to their unstable voltage output, but if you're shooting on negative film instead of transparencies you'll be unlikely to spot the difference. A single CR1/3N battery also does the same job as two LR44's but is harder to find and more expensive than two of the very common LR44's.

I purchased a used Nikon FA camera for my daughter to use in her photography class. None of the pictures came out during developing. Any ideas what the problem could be? I was only given a 7 day return...


If it's still within the 7 days take it back. The Nikon FA was a great camera but time and lack of use has probably caused the shutter to seize. To put this camera back into serviceable condition for any photography will require a clean, lubrication and adjustment by a qualified camera person. I'm in Canada and have cameras service fairly regularly older ones to have this type of work performed will cost about $120.00 Canadian. The instructor is probably asking for the students to have a manual camera to be able to learn from the ground up which to me is the best way but, these old cameras are failing just because the grease is drying out. There are still a lot of good used working camera out there I just bought a great Canon Elan 7Ne for $199.00 CDN and it's a 2005 model the last year of the Canon film cameras. I guess it depends on if you want to spend the money (and time) to get the FA repaired or step into something for a little more money that works properly right from the get go.

Shutter speed unpredictable


Older film cameras have the lubricant dry out and it begins to drag the shutter speeds down some like the Canon "A" series will even begin to squeak when the shutter is released. The Nikon FA's are great classic cameras and if in good cosmetic condition it's often worth having them repaired. I don't know where you are but in Canada a clean lube and adjust would be about $130.00, I'm sure less in the US. I still have several film cameras in my "fleet" although used less then once before they still produce great pictures. Happy Holidays from Canada

Nikon FA top plate removal


After unscrewing the rewind knob, remove the circlip under it. Remove the disk and pull the rewind shaft stop off the hub (a spring and flat plate). Remove the two screws. You'll need a special tool to remove the little stud the shaft stop was pivoting on. Take a 1/8 inch screwdriver and grind a slot in the blade. Use this tool to remove the stud, then remove the three screws from the plastic cover ring.

Putting film into nikon f60


It is fairly simple. Insert the film canister with the hole side (not the projection) down. Insert the spool of the camera into this hole and slide the canister inside the chamber. Now pull the film out slightly so that the leader (the narrow portion at the end of the film) aligns with the orange mark at the lower right end of the film chamber. Make sure there is no slack in the film. Close the door and turn on the camera.
