Bill, the exposure lock button which fell off your F3 is a common occurance with early F3 bodies. Even if you do find it, you can't simply insert it from the outside and it not fall off again. A new part needs to be fixed from the inside of the body and this can be done at authorised Nikon service facility in your area.
For the benefit of all, some of the F3 sold at a popular auction site have this part missing. Look out for it from the pictures. If they are dark, lighten them up using image editing software available in your computer.

My F3 is missing the small button that fits in the backup shutter
release lever. Assume some other parts missing, spring? Need help
finding these parts. Thanks Bill

Alana, your F3 may have been "impact damaged".
Hold your camera at eye level and look at the ASA/exposure dial. If it's slightly tilted, you should also check your meter operation. With the SHUTTER speed dial set to "auto" advance the wind lever until the frame counter is past # 1.
If the LCD displays: "-8", then your F3 needs two new parts:
the ASA/exposure dial and an internal meter circuit part.
Good luck.

Alana, I can't make out what the problem is with your F3's film speed dial. Is it loose and without resistance at all when turned? Normally the film speed is changed by lifting the dial while turning to the desired speed, aligning it with the indicator.The button is needed to be pressed only when to make exposure compensations of -2 to + 2, without the need to lift the dial as in changing film speeds.

I have a Nikon F3 HP. Mysteriously (I have a second grader) the film speed dial was turned without the release button being pushed first. Now I can't change the film speed as the dial appears to be stripped. Any suggestions????? My local repairman was stumped. How can one small problem bring such a great camera down. I welcome any comments. Thanks!

hi Gen, I tried to e mail your address, but it did not send. This week has been very exciting since locating my camera. My wife thinks I am a bit wacky over this. EF! is Earth First Journal an enviromental activist magazine. My wife and I have been hoping to save 12 acres of woods and wetlands from a developer behind our house in Philadelphia Pennsylvania U.S.A. The builder has decided to sue us for 3.8 million dollars, because we spoke up against him. The pictures will be In the June 21issue of the mag. will be a story about us, I put new batteries in camera, took a quick roll, went to the 1 hour photo place, overnite shipped the pictures and the publisher said they looked great. I could send you a copy if you are interested....Al

Al Chernoff: Welcome back to photography. By the way, can we share your joy by telling us more about "EF" ? Does it has a online publication that we can view your creative works with your F3 ? Looking forward to it. Cheers.
