I recently found a Nikonos II at a rummage sale for a give-away price and just had to have it. It seemed to be in decent shape, shutter was firing and came with a little 2nd edition booklet of "Nikonos Photography - The Camera and System". So I took it apart, realized it had some film in it still. Rewound it and threw it out, gave it a good cleaning and some lubrication on the O-Rings, figuring I could still use it for land use near the water without much worrying. I put it back together and after a few times testing the shutter, the film advance lever is cocked, but if I try to "depress" the shutter on it, the shutter will not fire. It feels stiff, as if it is on the last bit of film still. But I already rewound it! I looked in the little booklet and it only told me to remind the film as the lever is on the last tooth of the sprocket. I've tried rewinding it some more but it appears not to be doing anything. Is there something I am missing to 'reset' it? Or should I just try to keep rewinding it and see if I has any effect? I tried looking up my question here and online, but only found forums for the IV and V, which are electronic. I am going down to the beach next week and I would love to take this camera on the sandy beaches instead of my digital. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
