"F-EE" indicates that the camera cannot take automatic control of the lens' diapraghm. To resolve this, turn the aperture ring on the lens (the one nearest the camera body) to the largest number (probably 22 or 32).

I wouldn't suggest scrubbing your lens too hard with alcohol as that might damage it. What you're looking for is probably a full reset of the D50 camera, you can find instructions on how to do that here: Nikon D50 user manual
You're apparently using a lens with an aperture ring. Turn the ring to its smallest setting (largest f/number). If the lens has an aperture lock, lock it. You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as on a lens without an aperture ring.
You need to turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number). You control the aperture from the camera body, the same way you've always done with lenses without an aperture ring.
The lens is not making proper contact with the camera. Try removing the lens, cleaning the contacts on both the back of the lens and in the lens mount on the body, then reattaching the lens. If that doesn't do it, try jiggling the lens gently. If that doesn't do it, try attaching a different lens if you have one available, or attaching the lens to a different body if that is possible. If nothing works then it could be that the lens and/or camera needs servicing after the drop.
Is the aperature switch on the barrel of the lens all the way to the
left for automatic? If so, the next thing I would try is to clean the electronic contacts around
the lens mount, on both the body and the lenses. Make sure that you
have a good metal-to-metal electronic contact.
Remove your card and see if that clears the issue. If it does, then you
card was probably not "seated" correctly and it needs to be reinserted.
If that solves it, you're good to go. Another option is you try
resetting your camera. This is a fairly easy procedure which involves
either going into your setup menu and choosing "reset," or, removing
the batteries for a few minutes. It may be that the firmware loading
got corrupted and the camera just needs to be "rebooted," which is
something that turning it on/off won't accomplish. But after which, you
should have the camera reset to factory default settings.
Also, remove the lenses, clean the lens contacts with a pencil eraser, and reinstall. then power up.
When you get a flashing EE, it means there is an Eror somewhere.
Most cameras have a botton you press to reset it. Usually it is the battery check button.
Also try taking the lens off the camera, unlocking the aperture ring, remount the lens and then lock the aprture ring to the minimum F stop.
I think this should solve the problem.
