Question about Nikon 35Ti Quartz Date Point and Shoot Camera

1 Answer

No more flash?

Hey, i recently bought an nikon 35ti off of ebay and shot one roll with it since i have it. i loved it until this morning when i got it out to take a few pictures and inside the viewfinder was a flashing H. i know that it means that the picture is in danger of being overexposed but no matter what aperture the camera is set on, or if it is on the fully auto mode, it will always flash the H. i had taken about 40 pictures up until this point with this never happening once. it even happens when i go into a room and turn off the lights! i know that it's not going to be overexposed then but it still says that it will. it also no longer prompts me to use the flash, which it seems to all too much before. not sure what happened. i tried reseting all the modes and going back to factory defaults but never seemed to do anything. any ideas? lockett

I have done a lot of photography, some professionally, and am old enough to have used film cameras longer than I have used digital :>)

My immediate thought is what ASA speed do you have the camera set to? If it is something like 3,200 ASA, rather than 200 ASA which your film may well be, everything is going to show overexposed in normal light. Perhaps 3,200 ASA is an exaggeration, and in the reviews below, the ASA specifications of the camera as regards metering are not mentioned. Guessing it will be in Mode - Settings?

The camera requires you to set your lens aperture at the minimum setting, usually orange coloured. I.E. f22 f32. Nikons control the aperture through the camera, not setting the ring manually like old style SLR's

The mechunism is jammed. Rather than force things, I would take it to a camera service shop that works on Nikon to unassemble the camera to get to the locking pins. Then they can find the fault and service the camera for you.

Do you have a compatible AF-lens? Some of the lenses do not work with some of the AF-bodies.

Unfortunately, once parts like this stop being supplied by the factory, their only source is either to find another model of the same camera with a working part to scrounge it from, or start calling shops and suppliers hoping they may have one of the "new" boards on a shelf. It'd be unlikely they do, and if they do, they'd generally only supply to authorized repair technicians. You could check ebay and hope to find a working model of this camera, as that'd probably be much easier and cheaper than finding a single component (especially a PCB) for it.

I've got Nikon F65. I cannot load film. The motor which load up the film doesn't move at all. Please help!

I don't know this model but you can try this.Drop the film canister in and pull the film strip out and place on the film advance sprocket.Rotate the sprocket by hand/thumb until film is seated (1 turn). If the auto feed is working you will be OK. 2 other things ,1 of course load film in dark area, 2 check the batteries on the camera first, if they are week your film advance wont work ,Good Luck.

Hey Lackster,
Error 5 is a problem with the flash. Long story short it thinks there is an external flash attached even though the mechanical pop-up still works. It is repairable.

Please let me know if you have any more questions.

Just bought Nikon D60. No matter what mode I use

looks like a viewfinder has an issue. If you have recently bought the thing just return it and get a new one. If not possible to replace , i recommend visiting Nikon authorised service center.
Could be something in the path of pentaprism.

My Nikon N65 flash leaves a dark spot on all my photos

I love that camera. There are several possiblities, If you are using the pop up built-in flash with a telephoto lens or a lens hood you'll get a shadow in your photos ususally at the bottom of landscape oriented shots. If you are using a flash unit attached it may have something interfering with the strobe possibly or it is turned. We have the same camera and have had the shadow issue in the past. The pop up just won't work if something is wrong with the "bulb" the only other thing is that is isn't going all the way up, check that also.

Battery problem

I find that the Nikon 4300 really burns through the batteries when the camera is set to use red-eye correction. This triggers three or so flashes for each picture. I think I get more than 30 red-eye corrected flash pictures on a set of batteries, but probably no more than 50. Taking outdoor shots w/o flash naturally is kinder on the batteries.
