I had the lens mounted

Gryfox suggested that I fix the lens to get rid of the "F E E" error message, but actually I had the lens mounted when I had the error. Is there anything else I can try?

Re: 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.

How do i fix error 99 on my camera

Error 99 is Canon's catchall error, basically meaning "none of the above." The most common cause is miscommunication between the lens and the camera body. Take the lens off the camera and clean the electrical contacts, both on the back of the lens and in the mount on the body. Try a different lens if one is available.

I keep seein fEE what does that mean

The F-- error message is indicating the camera and lens are not communicating. Either the lens is not designed with electronic contacts, or maybe the lens is not connected fully and clicked in to place. Make sure if the lens is a CPU lens, that it is completely connected onto the cameras bayonet lens mount. You will hear a "click" when the lens is locked in place. Alternatively, if it has an aperture ring, it may not be set to F22 or the highest aperture number - normally marked in orange - Select this aperture and lock it using the aperture locking switch to prevent this occuring again.

Error message FEE on aperture

Make sure the lens is mounted on the camer fully. Make sure the aperture ring is set for the largest numbe like 22 or 32 if the lens has it. Some lenses have a lock to lock the aperture ring on the largest number for you. Also make sure the lens you are using is compatible with the F65 camera. if the lens is older then it will not give you any electronic data and the camera will never give you the f information in the viewfinder.

Every time i load my n65 and try to take pictures it blinks F E E and wont let me take pictures. what am i doing wrong?

This error relates to the lens not being mounted correctly

if you've got a non G-series lens (it HAS an aperture ring), you'll get the F EE message if the lens isn't stopped down to 22, and you're not in M mode. Also check the contacts on the lens... make sure they're clean. Normally, the CHA error will pop up if it's a CF card problem.

The Err usually appears because the camera is in one of the auto shooting modes and the lens is either not mounted or is mounted, but is not set to the smallest aperture setting (ie 22)

I'm getting an error message on my nikon n75.

You didn't specify when the message appears or exactly what it says, so I will take a stab at it. If it is the Err message and it happens as soon as you turn on the camera, chances may be high that the lens you have on it is not set to its smallest aperture opening (ie 22). The camera can't control the automatic exposure settings correctly unless the mounted lens is shut down to its smallest aperture

Message-lens not attached- comes on the screesolutions please ?

If you can assure that you have fitted the lens correctly and other lenses will work on the camera, it is safe to assume that the lens is faulty. Return the lens back to where you bought it.

FEE error message

To get rid of the pesky fEE just set your lens to f22 or f16 ( depending on what lens you have ) and that is all. You might also want to lock this setting in ( if it is a Nikon lens then the lock is on the side just above the lens aperture ring.

Err message

If the error message is on the left hand side of your LCD monitor then your shutter is not coming on line and it might be the 'reset' switch in the back cover locking mechanism that needs replacing. If the error message is on the right hand side of the monitor then this is because the F - stop on your lens is not set to highest setting ( 16 or 22 ) . Set your lens to highest setting and check again to see if error ( FEE ? ) disapears.

My Canon is displaying - Err 99 what should I do?

Just found this info which should help diagnose the err 99 issues (info direct from Canon apparently)

To isolate the cause of the issue, do the following: -

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert only a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If so, the camera may be faulty and requires a service. If it does not, then: -

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If so, then the CF card is faulty. Try a different card. If the message does not appear: -

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the gold contacts on the lens by GENTLY rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Keeping the camera face pointing down, also clean the gold contacts on the camera, being careful that you do not let any debris fall into the camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
If the “ERR 99′ message only appears when one particular lens is attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
If you see the “ERR 99′ with a different Canon lens attached, then the camera is faulty and should be serviced.
