My father recently purchased, via the 'bay', a used FE2. He's new to Nikon as he was a dedicated Pentax shooter previously. He called me last night with a problem. Mind you, I haven't gotten to look at the camera yet, but he's bringing it by this evening. I'm hoping to get some advice/suggestions on thing to check and try to fix his problem. While trying to load film (which he was unsuccessful doing) after he closed the camera back he found he could not advance the film advance lever and the mirror was stuck in the locked up position. His efforts, thus far, have not been successful in restoring function. Any suggestions on where to start? I e-mailed him to try new batteries.
