    okay, so i open up my christmas gift this morning and to my surprise, it is the nikon FM10 kit with the 35-70mm lens. i hand it off to a family member, and they push every button imaginable. on top of that they pull the self timer.

    now im in a bit of a pickle and i cant seem to get the self timer to go off. can anyone help my dumbass?

    im a product of the digital age, maybe im just dumb, but the shutter button won't depress all the way, the lever is locked into position, and the film advance lever seems not to do anything, as if it is ready for the shutter to be released and no longer engaged. i tried loading film but this was impossible due to the stuck shutter button.

    please help :hs:

    the manual says "once the self timer is engaged, there is no way to reverse it manually, so the next picture you take will be timed" but that doesn't really help considering i can't load film.
