Like most SLR's your camera has a latch mechanism that can be engaged to lock the mirror in the up position. The purpose of the mirror lock is to allow you to use some older lenses with short focal lengths that require the rear element to be so close to the film plane that they cannot be used with the mirror in a down position. I would start by identifying that "switch" and disengaging it. I do not have the manual for your camera, so I cannot tell you the exact location.

Looking at the front of the camera, there is a button next to the lens on the right side. Push and hold that button in while you twist the lens clockwise.

The F50 is called the N50 in some parts of the world.
The film loading instructions are on pages 10-11 of the N50 manual available from http://butkus.org/chinon/nikon/nikon_n50/nikon_n50.htm

The N65 uses two CR2 batteries.

If you need a manual, you may download a copy from http://www.butkus.org/chinon/nikon/nikon_n65/nikon_n65.htm

Sounds like you got dead batteries. Try putting in a fresh set.

This is often the result of little available light on the focus screen. The more ambient light (and more open the aperture is) the brighter and sharper the image is in the viewfinder. Less light effects the image in the view finder and makes it harder to see and focus.



If your lens only opens to f3.5 or 4.0 and you\'re trying to shoot indoors with available light - your lens may not let enough light into the camera to see the scene as well as you can with the naked eye. An f1.4 aperture lets eight (8!) times as much light as an f4.0 does and is why they\'re so expensive.



Try the same setup in a brightly lit (sunny day) scene to see if it goes away.



Good luck!

Ah, I figured this out. It's not the battery, since the light isn't dimmed. I had the same problem with the light being stuck at 60/120, and it was just flashing. There's a certain mechanism in the camera that only allows the light meter to start working when the exposure count is at 1. So when you load your film, you have to take 2 or 3 exposures, and crank it, before the light meter kicks in.
