    Dead Nikon N75

    I bought a completely dead Nikon N75 for parts, to use the back door on it for a live N75 which had a broken latch.

    When my parts camera arrived, while it was indeed truly "dead", it looked in pristine condition - no signs of dropping, immersion, or other abuse.

    Then I got to thinking - I wonder if it could be fixed? What would cause electronics to die in the absence of obvious abuse?

    I removed the base and examined the wires from the battery compartment and they seemed intact as far as I could see. Next I will remove the top and see if there are any visible problems with the on-off switch. Beyond that I'd be stumped.

    I only paid 99cents plus shipping for it and it's worth that for the door, but I'd be grateful for any comments or suggestions.

    I think that it is easier to move all the covering parts to your old N75, the result will be the same, a pristine and fully working camera.

    Well the working one is pristine too, except for the door latch. I guess I have to take the top and bottom off the parts camera to take the door off; I'll probably just check around the switch for broken wires and leave it that if there is nothing obvious.

    You can download the 100+ page shop manual for about six bucks. Might be worth it as a new body can be $35 and up.
