Lens not stopping down

I just recieved the camera in the mail and am wondering why I am having the problem of not being able to adjust the shutter speed on the lens. As well as now that I have been playing with the camera the lens will not stop down past 5.6 either. The lens will adjust from a 2.8 to 5.6 but will go no further.

How do I use my old manual lense with a K200D?

Move the automatic/manual focus switch (on the lower right of the lens mount as you look into the lens) to manual. Focus manually by turning the focus adjustment on the lens itself - align the split image as you would with your old camera and take the picture.
(Use a handheld light meter and set the f/stop and shutter speed appropriately - the K200D doesn't have a visible meter. I would recommend bracketing your exposures -up a stop and down a stop from the 'appropriate' stop.)

The lens does not have a shutter - that's in the camera body. The lens contains the aperture or f stop adjustment. It is done by injecting or retracting blades in the light stream of the lens barrel between the front and rear optics. Check the aperture blades to see if they move easily and open equally by varying the f-stop ring on the lens while looking through it. If not moving all the blades the same amount or it does not continue to restrict the opening as you increase the f-stop value, there's something wrong with the lens.

Are you sure you haven't accidentally activated any exposure compensation adjustment on the camera body?

Lines on screen and photos, too bright photos outside

Lines across your pictures or pictures too bright are due to the shutter not closing correctly or at all.
to check this- turn camera on, turn off flash, turn camera around and look into the lens. Adjust the zoom so that the shutter and internal lens comes up to the end of the lens and whatch as you take a picture. You should see the shutter close completely over the lens. If it doesn't move or does not close over completely then there is your problem.
If camera was dropped it could have jammed the shutter open or obstructed it in some way from closing completely.
camera will require repair/ service.
You may have some luck if you power up and down your camera numerous times before taking a picture. The action of the lens opening and closing may free the shutter.

M42 adaptor

Quite right too. When the M42 adaptor is fitted there is absolutely no exchange of information between the lens and the body: M42 lenses pre-date all of those later developments. Your camera will also be unable to stop down the lens automatically when taking the picture, most M42 lenses don't even stop down automatically when connected to an M42 body.

You need to do things the old-fashioned way. Your camera needs to be set to meter manually, shutter priority mode may also be used. In manual mode you focus the lens as normal with the aperture ring set to the lowest aperture number (i.e.aperture is wide open).
You then make sure that the lens in in manual mode as well and stop down to whatever you want, if the image remains bright enough then you can adjust the precise focus using the hyperfocal principle if you like which takes advantage of the increased depth of field of a stopped down lens.
In manual mode, you then tell the camera what aperture you have set (read it from the lens barrel) and set the shutter speed using the camera's light meter to guide you. If using shutter priority mode then the camera will choose the shutter speed for you.
Check everything is set as you intend and press the shutter.

It all sounds long winded but is exactly how many of the world's greatest photos were taken and soon becomes second nature. You also learn far more about the relationship between aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings and will be able to talk about reciprocity like you know about it!

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

Aperature ring

Hi, Is the aperture in max or min ?
Remove the lens. Try pushing the stop down lever and look through the lens if the aperture changes.
Look at this pic if you wonder what stop down lever means. http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/hardwares/nikonfmount/20AI-S2_8rearconv.JPG

F-stop issues

See pages 36&37 of the manual.

If you haven't got one, you can download it here.

In M mode...

Turn the selector dial to adjust shutter speed.

Hold down the AV+/- button (top-right of rear screen) and turn selector dial to adjust aperture setting.

As for Av mode, this is perfectly normal that you cannot set the shutter speed. Av mode means that you decide on the aperture setting and the camera (not you!) decides on the correct shutter speed.

Hope this helps,

Matt.

Will a lenses without the A setting on the apeture ring work on a DS

They will - fully open in Av mode, and with any aperture in manual mode - after you allow the Ds through the custom settings menu to use aperture settings different then "A". To choose correct exposure with such a lens in manual mode you can use the AE-button - it stops down the aperture, reads the EV and sets the shutter speed according to the chosen aperture.
