Question about Nikon N75 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

My Nikon N75 has F-- on the digital screen

The light meter on my camera doesn't appear-it just shows the F--. I have tried all aperature settings but can't seem to get it to disappear.

    Sopunds like a lens compatibility issue. Are you trying an older generation lens on the camera? Read the compatibility section of the user manual:

Set the smallest aperture (largest Fnumber) and lock the ring. If the aperture ring doesn't have a lock, you have to switch to manual mode (M on the mode dial).

I would like to know if a 24mm Nikon f2.8 Ai Manual Focus Lens will work on a Nikon N75 SLR Camera


Yes and no. It will fit and you can take pictures with it. You'll have to focus manually, of course, and you won't get any exposure help from the camera's light meter. You'll have to use the camera in the Manual exposure mode, setting the shutter speed on the camera body and the aperture by turning the ring on the lens and, as I said earlier, without any help from the camera's light meter.

My Nikon N75 says error and there is a flashing circle with a dot in the middle when i look through the lens.... What does this mean?!


If the LCD panel shows "E" then the film isn't loaded properly. If the LCD panel shows "ERR" and "E" blinking, then the film is not correctly advanced. If the LCD panel shows a blinking "E" when the exposure meter is turned on, then film remains in the camera after it has been rewound. In all cases, reload film.

If it's not one of those cases, or if the problem persists, please reply to this post giving further details.

When i turn the camera on, the F (aperature) button blinks, not allowing the camera to focus, even in auto mode. when this happens, i can't even customize my setting on A or S priority. I am frustrated...


This is usually because the lens is not compatible with the camera body. It will work fine with 'M', but light metering, autofocus or distance information are not transferred to the camera.

Since I believe you have had this combination for a while and it has worked fine earlier, it's better to take to authorized Nikon dealership for checkup and repairs.

I have a code fEE. I can't shoot. What's up?


Usually means that you have a lens with the aperature in the wrong setting for use on an auto aperature camera. Look at the lens and move the aperature setting to the red marking.

Don't feel bad, this one got me for about a half a day two different times the first time I put on my new 50mm f1.8 lens. Great lens, but I'd never had an "old style" lens before.

Just for reference, if you put an old manual lens on your D80, it will show F-- in the aperature display and won't take pictures except in "M".

I can't get meter reading for my Nikon N75


It depends on the lens. If it's a CPU lens (has electrical contacts) then the meter should work in any mode. If the lens doesn't have contacts then the meter won't work.

put simply the ISO number is how sensitive the film is to light, the higher the number the more sensitive the film. The ISO on the camera sets the exposure system to give the proper exposure for that film (the f/n80 usually sets the ISO automaticly). Also the higher the ISO the more grainy the picture, I would recommend using ISO 200 film for the pictures you describe. I would set the camera to the P setting it is a good all-around setting.
