    I have the same problem, I've tried to set a manual ISO value but the problem persists. then If I turn off and on the switch only one shut is possible, then the camera seems to be blocked and the red led blinks.
    Thanks in advance,
    Robert.

I too had this problem. I had owned the F4s from new but only lightly used it. A single shot only then the red light flashing. Nothing I tried corrected this inc changing batteries, resetting DX / ASA setting etc. Even opening the camera back to ensure the film was feeding (one cause) and finally running an old film through on the fastest drive speed. Eventually I had to take the camera to a Nikon repair agent who charged me £230. On the first shot when I got it back the same happened. Naturally it went straight back and they kept it for another 3 weeks. I now have it back and it's OK (so far). I still did not get a satisfactory answer to what was wrong but I was told the top and bottom drives had been rebuilt. Sorry this is not a quick fix but I don't think there is one. to hThere is nothing in any of the books or manuals to help or even mention it. best wishes Brian

I took my F4 to the official agent in Spain, Finicon, and they said the shooter is damaged and they can't repair it because Nikon don't provide spares... Later I took it to Arpi, a important agent in Barcelona with the same result... After a year I couldn't solve the problem.

One thing to check is the ASA setting. Without film and the ASA set to 'DX' will get you a blinking red light

Will a Nikon Sigma 70-210 work on my nikon D60??


Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount, then it will fit and work on the D60. Sigma makes lenses for a variety of cameras; a lens with a Canon mount, for example, will not fit onto a Nikon camera. However, the 70-210 is a rather old lens. Unless it specifies "HSM" it will not autofocus on the D60. The D60 does not have an autofocus motor, relying on the lens to have one. Nikon calls such lenses "AF-S" while Sigma designates theirs "HSM".

How do you make af work on nikon 3000, using a sigma 70-300 f4-5.6 dg macro lens?


Unfortunately, you don't. The D3000 does not have an autofocus motor; it relies on the the lens having one. This particular Sigma lens, unlike its Nikon equivalent, does not have a motor.

Nikon calls their lenses with an autofocus motor AF-S. Sigma calls theirs HSM.

Hello, I'm an Egyptian man who is simple and Rfiqir course, I dreamed of long ago owning a Nikon f4 miracle, and after many years only last week the dream came true, but I do not know how how to use them...


If you call Nikon USA and ask for the 'support' dept you can buy a Xerox reprint of the original F4 user manual for $6.99.
I did this just last week and got the manual yesterday.
There are a number of sites online that sell the reprint but the pictures are solid black because they were scanned. Get it from Nikon USA and the pictures are very clear and easy to understand the features of this camera. Good luck with it...... Perry

F4


luvin, F4 is a shorted oven sensor. Under 950 ohms. Should read 1060 ohms at room temp. The sensor is located in the upper left hand corner of the rear oven wall. Remove the 2 screws and it will pull out enough to remove the connector. Catriver.
