    Nikon L35AF Shutter Button Problem

    I just got a very nice condition Nikon L35AF for $1 at an estate sale with the original case.


    I put the two batteries in the camera (with no film)and turned it on and the light meter seemed to work.
    Here is the problem. When I clicked the shutter button down, the shutter clicked but the button stays down. It is not stuck up, like most problems are, but the button is stuck down and will not come back up.
    Has anyone else had this problem before?


    Thank for your help in advance.

    First off welcome to the forum.

    The camera is not worth much on the used market so you could probably buy a used on for less then it would cost to have it repaired. You might try a couple drops of alcohol on the button to see if that frees it up. If that does not work you might try a drop of WD40. At most you have wasted $1

    Welcome aboard. Enjoy the ride.
    We look forward to seeing more posts and samples of your work.

    I don't own this camera, but it is possible the shutter won't reset until the camera senses film advance. Many cameras are designed this way to prevent double exposures.

    A working Nikon L35AF sells for $70-$200 depending on condition.
