    I just got my T-90 by post and it is beautiful EXCEPT for this very same problem: a slight loose lens mount. After owning a rock-solid A-1 this is no fun at all !

How to reassemble 50 mm pentax slr lens


The problem usually comes about when the focussing ring comes loose. Step 1 remove the 1.front round name ring 2. filter ring. this will expose three screws that hole the focus ring in place. reset the focussing to infinity on your viewfinder then set the ring to the infinity mark and retighten. If the helicoid has come apart then take the mount ring out, aperture ring out, and remove the two focus guides. turn the core out, set the fine thread back until it is almost against the ring directly behind it. make sure that it has at least one and one half turns. then engage the helicoid back. refit the focussing core into the lens and refit the two guides.reassemble the lens and revert to step one to reset the lens.

Lens mount is shaky


remove front cover (four screws, one front, two sides, and one bottom), plus loosen two screws holding door latch plate and lift plate up slightly so front cover will lift free (plate has tabs that fit in slots in front cover. Do not lift up too high, just enough to slide cover free). Tighten four metal mount screws and re-attach front cover

Error: FEE on Nikon AF N6006 film camera with Nikon lenses.


Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number). You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as with a lens without an aperture ring.

Error 99 all the time , 1 yr old ...started it about 2 months after i bought it


Hum, error 99 eh? Canon's catch all error code, there is a ton of little entities that can cause error 99 from using third party lenses, batteries and even grips but, it all comes back to an electric contact fault. By using a good clean new pencil one with the red rubber eraser most of the error 99 problems can be quickly for lack of words erased. The most obvious problem area if you camera is not fitted with a battery grip is the lens contacts between it and the body of the camera.
Remove the lens, put the body cap on the camera when you are doing this part and while holding the lens as vertical as possible with the contacts down lightly rub the cold contacts. You can use a lens tissue and blow bulb/puffer to remove loose rubber. While you are at it clean all your lenses and put the rear lens cap on while not in use.
Okay the body, it's not as easy but doable, remove the body cap keeping the lens mount and open cavity pointing downward. Lightly rub the body contacts well but also gently, clean any rubber away from the contacts using a lens tissue. Don't use the bulb/puffer as it will blow eraser dust into the camera and possibly cause flecks of dirt to adhere to the sensor.
Once clean reinstall your lens and go do some photography.
Other things that cause this annoying error 99 are grip contacts, battery and recently I got into an error problem and my fix was updating to new camera firmware. That problem took me while on an assignment and would have been embarrassing except my back up was a "Rebel". Winding down the shoot the Rebel started with this error 99. Once back to the studio I did the updates and cleaned every lens I had. Cheers Happy New Year have fun make lots of pictures.

What does fee mean ?


It means that you have fitted a lens which has a manual aperture control and have not turned the aperture ring to the smallest setting (highest number). The F65/N65 controls the aperture from the camera body instead, via the command wheel.

If this is not the answer, then the tiny switch at about the 7 o'clock position (as you look at the front of the body lens mount) which senses that the aperture has been set to minimum has either failed or has sheared off completely. If so, your camera is totally uneconomic to repair as it's easy enough to get perfectly good N65/N75 and similar models for nothing via your local Freecycle and Freegle groups.

It keeps flashing "FEE" in the information screen. What am I doing wrong?


It is indicatin that there is a problem with the aperature coupling to the lens.

If the lens has an aperature control ring twist it round to either the samllest f-stop ( largest number ! ) or to the 'A' setting is it has one.

If it is a later lens that does not have a ring, try twisting the lens off and on a few times to clean the contacts, or wipe the contacts on the back of the lens and body with a dry rag.

There should also be a switch arm to the left of the lens mount, at about the 8 o'clock position - this should be pushed by the lens in the conditions above - make sure it is not jammed.

Answer to your question is, ‘Yes’ we can. Use Sigma FD lenses.

As we know Canon AV-1 has electronically controlled AE (Automatic Exposure) & has a Canon Breech-lock lens mount.

Original generation of FD lenses featured a silver locking ring at the base. Only that locking ring turns to lock the lens to the camera body; the lens body remains still.

In the newer lens system which was introduced with this camera, the user has to line up the red dot on the lens, with the red dot on the camera and simply turned the whole lens clockwise until it clicked into place.

Note: FD-mount cameras could use FL lenses in stop-down metering mode.

Thank you & have a nice day.

Warm regards,
William

1 Answer

Nikon F50


It is possible to damage Nikon SLRs by attaching them to certain older pieces of equipment. There are two main issues that you may encounter.

There are a series of contacts inside the lens mount that must be in good condition for correct operation of the camera. If the older gear causes these to bend or break, the camera will require repair. Look inside the lens mount using a flashlight to see if there is any sign of scraping or that the contact pins look damaged.

Many Nikon SLRs have a ring on the outside of the lens mount that has a small tab sticking up. The ring is supposed to rotate freely and the tab should interface with part of a Nikkor lens of AI-S or AF vintage. Earlier non-AI-S lenses or accessories could compress the ring or break the pin or both. If you can get the ring to rotate freely again, you might be able to get the camera to function. If the tab is broken or the ring is stuck or both, your camera will need professional repair.

Your problem could be caused by one of several things. The lens may be out of adjustment or have a loose mount. The camera also had problems with the mirror hinges. Look into the mirror area with the lens off to see if the mirror is square within the mount ring.

I had the lens mounted


The FEE display means that your lens aperture ring is not set to the F/22 or F/32 ( whichever is at the end of the rotation ). Mount the lens on the camera, then rotate the aperture ring all the way toward the highest number ( 22 or 32 ). If your lens has no aperture ring, the post on the body at the 8 o'clock position of the lens mount is probably broken. It has to be replaced by a repair shop.
