There are several possible reasons for this.

A) The lens is what Nikon calls a non-CPU lens, lacking the electrical contacts for things like autofocus and aperture control. With such lenses, you must use the Manual (M) mode. You won't be able to use the camera's light meter, and you have to adjust the aperture by turning the ring on the lens.

B) The lens is a D-type lens, with an aperture ring. You have to turn the aperture ring to its minimum (largest F/number) and lock it.

C) The contacts are dirty or otherwise not engaging properly. Clean the contacts on the back of the lens and on the lens mount. Reattach the lens and jiggle it slightly to try to engage the contacts.

If none of the above apply, then the camera and/or the lens may need service.

Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest opening (largest f/number). If the ring has a lock, lock it in place. You can control the aperture from the camera, the same was as on a lens without an aperture ring.,

I have a Sigma 70-300mm lense which, when I attach it to my D300 gives me an error message of FEE. I was assured when I bought the lense that it would work. Am I doing something wrong?


You didn't specify which Sigma 70-300mm lens (Sigma has at least five different versions, and I'm not referring to the lens mount), but from the error message I assume the lens has an aperture ring. Turn the aperture ring to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and lock it in place. Control the aperture from the camera, the same way as on a lens without an aperture ring.

If the lens doesn't have an aperture ring, please reply to this post specifying the exact model of the lens. That's all of the numbers and letters around the 70-300mm, like AF, DGO, f/4.5, etc.

Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest aperture (largest f/number) and lock it. Control the aperture from the camera, just as with other lenses.

I have a A640 powershot approx two years and has had little use over this period. I took it to a family event recently and took approx 100 photograghs before my lense became stuck. This happened as I was...


There are numerous suggestions on-line elsewhere for this common problem with Canon lenses. Does your display give you an error message? If yes, google that error message and you should find many suggestions for fixes. I know some places actually advocate just forcing it back into the properly aligned position although I think that should be a last resort. I have not done this myself but there are many who have fixed these cameras successfully. Good luck
