    Specifically, I need a new back for my F100. I also have a small crack in the body, which has been there for years and doesn't affect the operation of the camera. So, if someone has an F100 that doesn't function due to some internal problem, I'd like to buy it. My main priority is the back though, so I'd consider anything with a functional back.
    I've phoned Nikon and every repair place I can find without success.

    You can sometimes find lone backs on "the auction site." Did you try calling Authorized Photo Service?

    I have two non working F100 cameras both in real good shape other than they don't work. One I know had water spilled inside it the other not sure what happened.

    Hi Terry, I'm interested in purchasing one of them. The water damaged one would do fine if there's nothing electronic contained in the back. You can email me at johnwaddison@gmail.com.

    OK John they are in the mail. I also sent a battery holder and the little rubber door on the bottom that always seems to be missing when you buy these on eBay. Plus a PC since cover.

    Were they both sent? Hoping maybe one is left...I have the same problem. The clips on the film door broke and no luck replacing them. I had paid 330 from key for a mint camera hoping it would last a long time...a bummer for sure. Any spare parts to fix the issue please let me know :sad:

    Mine was repaired by a technician who replaced the plastic clips with metal ones. Now it works like a charm .

    Drew, I received both from Terry. I haven't had a chance to take any pictures with it yet, but I don't expect any problems. If everything is fine with the back I used, I'd be happy to send you the other one. Email me at johnwaddison@gmail.com with your address, and I'll let you know how much the postage would be.

    Foen, who performed your repair to convert the plastic clips to metal?
