Since you didn't mention anything about shooting in manual settings I'm going to guess you have been and the camera work there in shutter or aperture mode, so make sure you set your lens's F-stop back to the auto position - check the dot on the lens ring with the f-stop numbers (usually in red) like the f-22 make sure they are aligned when in auto so when the camera needs more light and the lens can fully open to give it the light it is asking for, then it will shoot otherwise it won't. Does that make sense.

Nikon N65 won't take a picture

If you have the lens set to the lowest number, you should be seeing a FEE error on the display. The lens needs to be set to the highest number, typically 16 or 22.

Nikon N65 won't take picture

The problem is, that you have a lens witch has an aparture ring on it and some exposure modes needs it to be fixed on the smallest aparture (e. f22). When its done the camera should not say fEE no longer.

Camera wont let me take any pictures it just says FEE?

That usually means that the lens you have mounted on the camera is not set to its smallest aperture (ie 22). It needs to be set that way so that the camera can control the full spectrum of aperture positions when shooting in one of the auto program modes.

N65 Nikon Issue

With the advent of auto focus on Nikon cameras came electronics in the lenses. These electronics communicate with the camera. Since the camera controls the aperture, it needs to be set at the high end to allow the full range of f-stops. I.E. it cannot set f-22 if the ring is on f-8. With all of the modes available on the camera. you control the setting or the camera does, its just no longer a mechanical function.

Nikon n65 will not take pictures

Not knowing if you are shooting in auto or have recently switched from manual to auto shooting you may have adjusted your f-stop on the lens, make sure you adjust the ring to align with the auto setting (the f-22 in red letters) with the dot on the lens) then the camera will be allowed to open for enough light to take the shot.

Nikon N65 Unable to take picture

Hey colettekm,
What this message should mean is that a non G-type Nikon lens is being used and its aperture is not set to smallest aperture which would be the largest number on the aperture ring on the lens. I hope this helps!
