SOURCE: Aperture cannot open fully

As you have found out, it is not a lubrication issue. It would seem that your lens has a problem with the linkage arm inside the mount. The arm that extends out of the mount could be bent or misaligned. It would be fixable, but the parts are somewhat delicate. Best to let a good repair person have a look.

From your description, Yes. All RB67 lenses have common problems, usually sticky blades. Since there are 2 sets of blades, (shutter and aperture), the shutter blades may be contaminated with oil/debris

Does the lens have an aperture ring? If so, some such lenses also has a 'lock' (a tiny button near the narrowest aperture) enabling it to be used with cameras having CPU contacts. Check if your lens has this.

Nikon D90: Won't focus properly in automatic mode


Make sure the subject is well lit. The autofocus relies on differences in contrast to determine proper focus. Move to a well lit area or add additional light and attempt again.

Make sure the aperture ring on the lens (if that lens has one on it) is set to minimum (highest number - f22 etc.) This value it often a different color ink than the others to help speed locating it. On most Nikon & compatible lenses, when the aperture is set to minimum, the camera's main & sub command (thumb and finger) dials will control the aperture and shutter speed. When the shutter is held down 1/2 way, the aperture will open fully (to allow the most light in and speed composition) and then automatically stop down to the commanded value when fully depressed for the exposure. If you have the aperture set on the lens to something different - it may be preventing sufficent light from entering and interfere with the autofocus function.

Good luck!

I have a Nikon D70, and a Quantaray lens (28-90mm). I have had this camera for about four months, and it has been working fine with the lens. When I received the camera, the aperture ring moved, but the...


In order for the aperture to be controlled by the camera's program or primary and secondary control knobs, the lens must be set to the smallest opening - or highest number value f stop. The aperture must be operated by the ring if it is not left in the smallest opening position.

The FEE code you are seeing refers to a communication error between the lens and the camera body. Sometimes, simply removing the lens from the body and reseating it to the body will solve the problem. While the lens is off the body, carefully inspect the gold colored contacts on the lens and mating contacts on the camera body. Remove any dirt or debris found, being careful not to allow it to fall into the camera - or land on the back glass of the lens.

I found another explanation and possible remedy that stated:

"A flashing "FEE" is an improperly set aperture ring in 99.9% of all cases with this error message (i.e. user error). In very rare circumstances it can be caused by a damaged aperture ring (small lug broken from back edge) that can't "tell" the camera it is at the minimum position. If the aperture rings on the lens is set to minimum aperture (highest number) and locked there, but you still get a FEE error, it's possible that sloppy tolerances are causing the lens aperture ring to not move the little switch at the 8 o'clock position (on the D70 lens mount) as far as necessary to get a proper indication of minimum aperture. Try to see if the aperture ring (while locked) will move slightly when mounted on the camera to clear the FEE error.

Another remote possibility is that the little switch at the 8 o'clock position mentioned above is not functioning properly (sometimes they get dirty). Try "exercising" it by moving it back and forth with your finger, then try the lenses again. Usually FEE has nothing at all to do with CPU contacts (with a reverse engineered third party lens anything is possible I suppose), but it doesn't hurt to clean them to eliminate that possibility."

You can also try a different Nikon compatible lens. If the trouble is still present, the camera may need to be returned for repair. If the the problem goes away, then the issue is tied to the lens itself. This would mean the the lens needs repair.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thanks!

When recording I get no image - only sound. Dont see image through the lens (lens cover is open). Have flashing message up top: E:61:11


Hi,
This kind of problem occurs due to two possible failures, either ccd imager chip or jammed aperture in camera lens mechanism.
Turn On camcorder while looking in lens, you will notice aperture opens like an eye opens, if that happens that means aperture is working and ccd imager chip is bad, replacement of this chip will solve problem and local camera repair shop will do this job because camcorder will take apart and soldering work is required. Jammed aperture job is even more harder and qualified tech is required to do that.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

Lens is not opening


Take the lens out and look the bottom side of the lens. There is a lever that operates the aperture leaves. If the aperture leaves does not move or moving slow, you have oils on the aperture leaves which need cleaning.
If the lens is good, the camera's lever that move;s this lens' lever mechanism had gone bad. Take out the lens and watch the aperture control lever moves when you trip the shutter. If it is moving, the problem is with the lens.

The FEE error means that the lens aperture ring is not set to the smallest opening (highest number). The camera body needs it set this way so it has full control of the light reaching the film (or sensor). The lens has a lock mechanism to keep the aperture ring at the smallest opening so you don't accidentally move it when using or changing the lens. On older Nikon lenses, it's a little round button with a white arrow which you push down and rotate to match the arrow with an orange mark. On newer Nikon lenses it is a little slider with a white dot which you can move with your fingernail to match the white with the orange mark.

I think I messed something up on my lens.


You are correct that the switch locks the aperture. In order for your camera to function correctly in the auto-focus mode you must lock the aperture to the smallest opening (largest number such as f22). The switch has two positions. The position where the switch is lined up with the orange line is the locked position. When the lens functions properly and on the camera, the lens aperture is forced wide open by a pin on the camera body pushing a lever on the lens that opens the aperture. As part of the sequence when you push the shutter button, the camera releases its pressure on the spring-loaded lever on the lens, allowing the aperture to close to the setting that the "computer" has determined as correct. You will find this lever on the outside of the black ring that surrounds the rear lens element. With the lens removed, find the lever and make sure that with the lens set to the f22, sliding the lever counter-clockwise against the slight spring tension, the aperture opens wide and returns to f22 when released. If this is not the case, the problem is in the lens. If this works, then the problem is either in your camera body or in the alignment between the body and lens. If this does not get you on the right track, let me know what you find and we will proceed from there.

Hi

Do you mean the outer lens covers that open and close when you turn the camera on and off, or do you mean the aperture inside the lens that adjusts the amount of light that gets through?

The outer lens covers can usually be repaired if you can get the parts, or you can try taking it apart, cleaning it and then put it back together.

If it's the aperture then you can maybe repair the lens by tearing it down and rebuilding it, or you can replace it yourself or have somebody replace it for you.

We are a digital camera repair shop, we have W55 lens repair listed in our store for only $65 if you're interested just let us know.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

Aperture diaphram on mamiya secor lens 80mm f/2.8


The lens has a lever marked A/M near the aperture ring. If the lever is in the 'A' position, the lens will stay wide open until you trip the control lever at the back of the lens next to the rear optics. In the 'M' setting, you can see the aperture move as you change the f-stop setting on the ring. Set the lens to anything but wide open and move the control lever with your finger. You should see that aperture move.
