Question about Nikon N2000 35mm SLR Camera

Open Question

Hi there, My Nikon n2000 has stopped working - it is an old camera and was sent to me in Australia about 2 months ago. I have had ten (ish) rolls developed and they were great. So it has stopped working since then - it was a cold place where it stopped working, but only about 10deg Celsius... so not too cold. It MAY have a grain of sand in it... however, I was very careful with it at the beach. I have had the batteries replaced and this hasn't helped. It's as though no power is getting to the camera when I press the shutter... and the other day I took a photo on the timer and it did work! I am very confused. Any common problems? Thanks, Mara ( =

SOURCE: shutter jammed

Did you set the camera to M90 AFTER you installed new batteries? The camera will work without batteries in the B and M90 settings, but when you install new batteries, reset the mirror by turning the dial to M90. If this doesn't correct it, I wouldn't recommend opening the camera - take it to a repair shop.

SOURCE: nikon fm10 35mm SLR developed pictures turn out white

That sounds like your shutter isn't opening. take the lens of and set the shutter speed to B this should keep the shutter open as long as the release is pushed down. advance one frame and hold down the shutter release while looking at the opening where the lens should be. If the shutter opens you will hear it and see the back plane where the film would sit to be exposed. I expect your shutter won't open.

Good luck

SOURCE: Nikon EM (1979?) Won't wind film, photos don't come out

Not necessarily. The EM has an M90 setting which will fire the shutter at 1/90th of a second. The meter is inactive on this setting. It was put on the EM so that if the batteries fail, you can shoot at 1/90th and take a guess at the exposure. There is also a small button (blue or chrome, depending on the production run) which lights up a red LED if the batteries are good. The light meter doesn't work until the frame counter is at 1 or higher. Before the #1, the shutter will always fire at 1/2000th of a second to speed up the film loading process. You can tell that the meter is working by observing the meter's scale/needle on the inside of the viewfinder. If it is pointing out of the red zone, it's OK to shoot (proper exposure). If the needle is in the red zone (indicating under or over exposure) the camera will "beep" as an audible warning. Check the battery condition first.

Hi, It almost sounds like the battery won't hold a charge anymore which means you need a new battery. Since the camera isn't quite a year old yet I'd suggest contacting Nikon and seeing if they'll do anything for you before you buy a new battery.

Hi Dl, It sounds as though the camera should go in to Nikon for a CLA, (Clean Lube Adjust).
These cameras are worth $90 and less. As you can see it would cost more to have them fixed than to purchase a used one.
Look at, they are the largest used camera company in the USA if not the world. They are in the Atlanta Metro area.

Electrical fault, no lights or other response when batteries are installed.

Hi tjambarker, sometimes this is an issue with the battery holder. On my N2000 I had the same issue I needed to disassemble the AAA battery holder clean it then, it worked. Another thing to be aware of is on the camera the springs that hold the battery holder in place have two wires that go into the camera. If there was any battery corrosion it sometimes will travel up those wires causing internal camera corrosion. Off to Nikon it goes. You may be better served purchasing a used one for less than $90.

Film rewind crank stuck in up position nikon n2000

Move it a bit (some half circle)back and forth. The slot may be in wrong position related to the roll inside. It should click in when you get the slot in right angle.

N2000 will not Turn ON

Hi Oskarr900, The corrosion may have eaten away at small wires that are on the springs that hold the battery holder in the camera. Notice those wires go into the plastic camera body. If that has happened the camera will need to go in to Nikon. These cameras are only worth $90 or less so you may want to look into purchasing a used N2000.

There is a collar that is around the shutter release button. You lift the collar and turn it.
