Check to make sure that the film is properly inserted into the take-up spool, and watch the rewind knob and make sure it is turning indicating that the film is going through the camera. Also check to make sure that the multi-exposure lever isn't stuck in the on position by spillage or impact so the camera just keeps taking exposure on one frame and the film doesn't move.
Unscrew the rewind knob and remove a circlip under it (You may need to grind the tips of a pair of round-nose pliers for this). 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.
Do not remove the center screw from the shutter speed dial. Remove three screws from the side of the dial and pull off the grip ring.
Hi, The battery does not affect the back cover opening. The back can be opened by lifting up on the film rewind knob but on this model, there is a lock. Lift the rewind knob and at the base of the rewind knob is lifted from, there is a safety lock. You have to move this safety lock and lift the film rewind knob at the same time to open back.
After rewinding the film, nudge the little switch between the ISO dial and the rewind crank counterclockwise and lift up on the rewind knob until it catches. Then pull up a bit more and the back should spring open.
If you want to rewind manually, you need to press two buttons simultanously. Turn the power on. First, hold "BKT" button just above lens release knob then press the button "+/1" just next to the shutter release. Both button will have red rewind sign next to them. -James
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.
