Help! Nizo is not working
Posted 09 January 2009 - 03:38 AM
I just got a Nizo 561 it looks like it hasn't been used for years. I put in some fresh batteries but it doesn't seem to run, except for the light meter and zoom, I have used the electric remote, but still doesn't work, although I am not an engineer/technician I opened ithe side panel up and looked inside and everything works when I touch the starter motor/electromagnet thing, but seems that the electromagnet itself is not been triggered when I press the release trigger. Can anyone help me?

This is the lap dissolve feature on the Nizo.
Try depressing it and then pull the trigger.
The camera should start if this is the problem.

on top of Jean's advice, set all dials and setting on the camera to the setting with a red dot next to it.
That is the full automatic mode, all fancy settings are off.

Here is a page from my Website addressing the matter of the Camera's Clutch which is an important part of maintenance.
