N70: Double Exposures
My father recently gave me his old N70, which he hadn't used in years.
I put in a roll of film ( haven't shot film in years) and when I got the film back, I saw that a few frames had been double exposed.
1) Is there a way to deliberately double expose a frame in a N70? I thought that maybe I paccidentally touched something I shouldn't.
2) Assuming that there is no double exposure option in a N70m then is this a known problem that a N70 will sometimes double expose?
3) What can I do to fix it?

The N70/F70 does NOT have a double exposure setting. There is a trick to not advancing the frame for a double exposure, it is to take a picture (or two) with the film door release held down (but not open). This prevents the film advance motor from engaging resulting in a double exposure.
Do you have fresh batteries installed? It could be that the batteries need replacement. My N70 is over 10 years old and going strong...I'm using it tomorrow for my son's birthday (those pics will be B&W - F100 will be color).

Drat I wrote a nice long post with all the insidious knowledge about the N70/F70 and then lost it...
The only way to get a multiple exposure is to trip the back latch (hold the back closed or it will pop open) while you hit the shutter. You can do this as many times as you like since the body just don't know what is going on.
It is not easy so I'd be surprised if you'd done that unwittingly.
The N70 also has a back latch that is a fairly fragile plastic prong pair that extends from the back and this can be broken but this usually results in the back not staying closed and requires the back to be replaced. These were fairly common in the aftermarket trade or just buy a cheap second body to steal the back.
