As I recall the G series lenses do not have the tab to throw the lens switch (when facing the front of the camera it is the small tab on the outside of the lower left of the lens mount.) You might try moving the tab over with the lens mounted & check if the camera will work. If it works you will have to find a way to hold the switch (do not permanently jam the switch as it needs to open when the lens is removed to reset the camera's lens data). If it does not work you will need to upgrade cameras or replace the lens with an older version

FEE error message displayed on SLR camera LCD
If the cameras LCD screen displays "FEE" in the area where the aperture is normally displayed, please ensure that the lens is attached to the camera correctly. This error message will appear if the lens is not attached correctly to the camera or if you are not using a CPU lens such as the Nikon AF or Nikkor P lenses. Alternatively, if the lens has an aperture ring, it may not be set to f22 (or the highest aperture number on the aperture ring - normally marked in orange). Select the aperture number marked in orange on the lens and lock it using the aperture locking switch to prevent this occurring again.
The FEE error message
Set to F22, or the highest aperture number - normally marked in orange. Note the locking switch. If the above did not resolve the problem and you still experence the the error display FEE, please contact your local Nikon office. Before doing so please also check the following.
That the EE servo coupling highlighted above on the lenses has not been broken.
That the F-min switch highlighted above on the camera body has not been broken. If either of the two items above are broken please contact your local Nikon service center.
Any of your lenses will fit on any Nikon digital SLR camera. However, there are several things to consider.
Most Nikon digital SLRs have a sensor smaller than a frame of 35mm film. This means that your lenses will give the same angle of view as a lens with a focal length 1.5 times longer. For example, your 50mm lens will give the same angle of view as a 75mm lens would. This applies to all Nikon dSLRs except the D700 and D3 series.
If the lens does not have the electronics to communicate with the camera, some dSLRs will not be able to meter with them. Of the current models, the D7000, D300s, D700, and D3 series will work.
Most old autofocus lenses will not autofocus on some dSLRs. Unless the lens is designated "AF-S" they will not autofocus on the D3000, D3100, and the older D40, D40x, and D60.
Any Nikon digital SLR will work with this lens. However, there are two things to consider.
On cameras other than the D700 and the D3 family, the smaller sensor will make the lens appear as a 105-315mm. On the D40, D40x, D60, D3000, D3100, and D5000 cameras, you will lose the autofocus capability.
Nikon told me to remove battery, remove SD card, remove lens and then hold the shutter button down for 30 seconds. If the Also sometimes the contact between the lens and body is not quite perfect and removing and replacing the lens hleps. If not it has a 1 year warranty, return to them with the exact error message (even if the problem is just intermittant) and they can usually find and fix the problem if the above things do not do the trick.
What about other modes?
Can your camera still take photographs?
You can Try the following;
Remove the batteries , as also remove the memory card. wait for about 5 minutes. Then install the only the fully charged batteries and restart the camera. Try to use the shutter or Aperture mode, hopefully, you turn it on it and should come back to life.
If not, then it best to show to the nearest Nikon service center..
please do rate this solution and thankss for using FixYa!
I believe Promaster does not have any lenses with focus motor in the lens, so it will not autofocus with your D60. Their AF versions for Nikon will work with your camera's metering system for proper exposure, but you would have to focus manually.
