Re: Nikon F65 power switch button issue
Sounds like you have been shooting in one of the manual modes, make sure if you have been trying different F-stops to change the aperture ring back to it's auto position (red numbers F-22 usually) to align with the white dot on the lens. That way the camera and lens can agree on the amount of light needed and how much the shutter will open to allow light in. The camera won't take the shot if it is way off (kind of a safety). Use the viewfinder to learn what combinations the camera needs for a particular shot so you can be familiar with the speed and aperture settings, try them in one of the manual modes and you will be pleasantly surprised with the results. Soon you won't shoot as much in auto mode.

The date stamp feature on this camera will only work in postcard mode- resolution set to 2M (1600 x 1200) and compression set to fine. You have to set the picture mode to that first. You also have to set the date and time if it isn't set already.
To set the mode quickly, set the mode switch to camera, turn the mode dial to A (auto), then press Func. button, scroll down to the "L", scroll across to the mountains with the clock dial, then press the Disp. button to turn date prinitng on and off.
the focus is probley not focused and the camera has a program to prevent u taking pics when its not focused or is focusing at the time u press the button.
( and its a stupid concept) or if u been taking many pics within a short time like a pic every 2 secs ur memory card speed may not be able to keep up with the pics being downloaded to it. temporaily making it so the camera will not take pics untill the others are on the card.
make sure u partaly press down the picture button so the camera will go into auto focus mode. when it beeps ( most cameras beep) u can take the shot.
I e-mailed nikon for this same problem. Their solution was to take out the memory card and press the shutter release button in the demo mode. To get to the demo mode you first need to go to custom menu/controls/no memory card?/press ok/ arrow down to enable release and press ok. Now you are ready to try solving this problem. Press the shutter release button to see if it will reset the shutter release button. I haven't tried it yet but it is worth a try.
I dont think this is actually an error but, the "07 is just telling you that the camera is
in Raw shooting mode and in that mode you can shoot 7 shots one after
the other (with continuous shooting mode on) before the buffer gets
See page 140 of the manual and also read about RAW mode settings on your camera.
Cheange the setting from RAW and try taking a pic to see that your "error" goes away.
When this camera is in "Auto" mode the only flash functions available are Auto or Flash Off - in order to get the option of "Flash On" for all pictures you have to put the camera in "Manual" mode - to do this:
-Set the mode switch to the camera icon
-Press the "Func./Set" button
-Use the left or right arrow keys to set it to Manual mode (its icon looks like half a camera with the letter M beside it)
-Press the "Func./Set" button again to save your mode change.
Now when you press the flash button and cycle through the choices there will also be a "Flash On" option.
Hi taylorrm, I don't know if you have a solution to this but sometimes the AE-L/AF-L but gets pushed which is the auto focus lock button then the shutter release button cannot be used to focus and yu have to reset by pressing it again. Even though it's confusing at first it's a feature along with the AE/AF Lock to try out to lock your focal area on a subject prior to shooting.
check to make sure the switch on the camera body is switched to AF instead of M mode(looking at the front it's on the lower right hand side below the lens release button), which sometimes happens when changing the lens - so then the mode selected is in P,S,A, or M modes on the mode dial. happy shooting,
