Since I managed to lose my camera at a wedding, my friend offered to lend me her Nikon FG for the weekend. Thought this would be the answer to my prayers since I can't stand to be without my camera. Not to be, however. She couldn't get it to work and I thought that the batteries might be dead. *Note: I've only used a Pentax K1000 before.* Replaced them, but to no avail. Viewfinder is dark and shutter won't trip. Removed lense and the mirror is in the up or tripped position. Is there something I'm doing wrong or is this camera FUBARed and needs to go into the shop? I don't want to break it, so the less i mess with it, the better. Thanks.
