Question about Nikon Digital Cameras

1 Answer

Nikon FM: Shutter release button will not allow me to take another photo and I'm only on frame 15 of a roll of 24. The film advance lever does not move the film, but it does open all the way to the right & shows the lights on inside (so the battery is OK). I changed the battery just in case, but that didn't solve the problem. I'm wondering if the film somehow came undone inside.

The FM is a mechanical camera, the batteries only power the metering system. Sometimes what happens is when you buy film say in 4 roll packages, they give you 3 24 exps and a 12 exp. I suggest that you rewind the roll and check this. You will only lose the last frames if the roll is indeed a 24 exp.

My Nikon L35 AF's shutter button won't pop back up when I press it down.


Hi Broderick,
You have some (dirt/ dust/ sand) clogged around the clearance between the shutter button and the camera body. If you are a DIY type of person, you can check and clean that dirt, other wise take it to a repair shop for proper cleaning.

The vertical shutter sliding lever gets locked if the film doesn't get advanced to the next frame, and the mode selector is set for single exposure. You can't trip the shutter unless you have film in the camera and you forward the film to the next frame. That should allow you to release the shutter with the sliding lever.

Nikon d90, blinking "Error"


You "release the shutter" by pressing the shutter release button, often called the shutter button. That's the button you press to take a picture :-)

The camera may or may not return to normal after that. If it doesn't, remove the battery, then put it back in and turn the camera on again. Try removing and reattaching the lens (with the power off). If the problem persists, have a certified Nikon tech look at it.

My Pentax SPII shoots blank images


You can check the shutter without film in the camera. Remove the lens and open the film door. You will see the cloth curtains of the shutter in the center. Advance the film lever to **** the shutter and set the speed dial to a slower speed like 1/15. Hold the camera so it is aimed a a light source, (a window will do) and fire the shutter. You should see the light through the shutter for the time duration is is set to. (1/15). If you see the light source, repeat the process going up one speed setting until you reach 1/1000. If you see the shutter open and close as described, then try another roll. After you load the film and close the back door, make note of what the rewind knob is doing as you advance the film. It should spin counter-clockwise each time. That is a easy test to know that the film is traveling in the camera properly. Vary your exposures with the new roll at different speeds and f-stops. You should get exposures, but if not let us know.

Film camera I assume?
Sounds like the end of the roll to me or it may be off track.
Remove and replace film with NEW roll. While its empty (and open) you might try the shutter release button and watch the shutter (it is very fast so hold it up to light) to see if it is working.

Shutter problems


I am having a similar problem with my eos 100QD.
shutter opens, then stays open until I depress the shutter switch again.
Sometimes about half my photos are lost on a roll, but the other photos are fine (as would be expected from how the film is wound). This problem looks like it's caused by the shutter mechanism failing, a common problem with older camera and one that is often more expensive to repair than it is to replace the body.

Stuck shutter D100 Nikon


The R06 is the buffer indication, not part of the error. It would appear more work is required. Other components may have failed, or the shutter itself may be bad.

I'm afraid this one is not a DIY. Nikon is pricey on repairs, you may fair better checking the repair service search here on Fixya.
