I have a Nikon FG-20 SLR that I got used for my photography class in college, about 5 or 6 years ago.
2 or 3 years ago when I was getting ready for a trip, my friend (who is an amature photographer) offered to clean my leses for me. He used camera lens cleaning solution and special papers and one of those soft plunger-like things to clean.
If I recall, he also put some solution on the “lens” inside the camera. That is, the plate at the top of the inside the camera that gets a reflection from the tilted mirror inside the camera. I THINK this is considered the “focusing screen”
See how much I don’t know?
So now when I look through the camera, I see a fuzzy rectangle with a clear hole in the middle. It’s been this way for a few years now…been meaning to have it fixed.
Now I’m ready to have it fixed. I need to know a few things:
- Can this be fixed? looks like a part just needs to be replaced.
- If I call a camera repair shop, what do I tell them needs done?
- How much would it cost to have it fixed?
The camera cost, I think, $250. I can’t really afford more than $50-100 to fix it. Hopefully it’s easy…?
