Mirror lock up

Hello FixYa
Allthough I purchased new batteries the mirror
has locked in the up postion (I tried two new sets of batteries}
I can pull down the mirror manually , it doesn't seem stuck.
I know it is a dinosaur and I have a Digital but I like using the old
camera once in a while.
Any suggestions would be great.
Thanks
Danny

Carefully push the shutter curtain to the rewind side. If you look at the camera from the front with the lens off, push the cloth curtain to the right

    Ouch, seems a little steep for an older camera. Glad it worked for you.

I was given a nikon nikkormat el camera and i can't find a battery compartment


The battery compartment is inside the mirror box, on the lower side. To change the battery, remove the lens, lock up the mirror, then push the lid to the left and lift it up.

You can download a copy of the manual from

Film unable to advance Shutter unable to open Focussing screen unable to return


Sorry, this isn't enough information. What camera body do you have? on some models, the "lock-up" was an indicator that the battery was too low to meter properly. In an effort to keep you from taking improperly exposed photos, the manufacturer buil;t this in as a "safety feature. If your camera has a manual mode or a "B" setting, try those and if the mirror flips down, check your battery.

Mirror locked up on Nikon F75


Try pressing and releasing the shutter button. If that doesn't do anything, then turn the camera off and on and press and release the shutter button. If that still doesn't do anything, then turn the camera off, remove and reinsert the batteries (or a fresh set, if readily available), turn the camera on, and press and release the shutter button.

I ran across a Nikon N80 last week which hadn't been used for many moons. I tried the shutter and the mirror promptly locked up. It took about half a dozen tries, but the mirror eventually shook loose or whatever, and the camera now works perfectly.

If the above procedure doesn't do it, then you may have to take it in to a good camera shop for a CLA (clean-lubricate-adjust), the camera equivalent of an automobile tune-up.

Sounds like the shutter or mirror assemble is damaged and needs repair. This is a major repair that a technician will need to preform.

have you tries changing the battery in the camera. if you try to take a photo with a dead battery it will lock the mirror up. If changing the battery doesn't make the mirror release turn the shutter speed dial to "B" and that should release the mirror

The viewfinder of my minolta x700 is always black


Check if the mirror is locked or stuck. If the viewfinder is dark, it means there is something wrong with the mirror.
