I bought new batteries for my N65 and my camera keeps blinking ERR.

The manual mentions only 2 conditions where the Err message appears. First if it is Err + E at the same time, the film has not completely wound and needs to be reloaded.

If it is Err alone, the manual states to fire the shutter and see if the message remains. If it does, to contact a Nikon Authorized Service Rep.

I have the same problem. An N70 with the err message. If the rewind buttons are pressed (without any film in the camera) the camera tries to rewind but will only stop if the back is opened. I tried...

The Err message alone indicates that a malfunction has been detected, and the manual recommends to fire the shutter and check for the message to clear. If it does not, to contact a Nikon Service Rep.

If it is Err + E, the film did not advance properly and needs to be reloaded.

Err message nikon f-100

Read pages 99-101 of the manual. There are numerous err messages referenced. Some blink others only have the E of Err blink and the like, all with different solutions. If you cannot find the manual call Nikon Film 1-800-645-6687.

Nikon N75 - error message, nothing working.

You have to reset the rewind counter by pushing the two buttons simultaneously - one on the side of the lens mount, the other by the release button - red, cassette symbols. This tells the camera there's no film in it.

Err min Message

This can happen if you are using a non-G lens, without the lens aperture being set to the minimum aperture and locked.

ERR sign keeps blinking in the lcd

First check the batteries. Are they fully charged? If you still have the same problem, try this:

Is the film (that which did not rewind fully) still in the camera? If so, open the film chamber door once in a dark room and close it again. Try to rewind the film again. This could possibly be the result of the film getting stuck somewhere, preventing the camera from rewinding it.

My camera won't do anything but flash the Err message

Make sure the lens you are using on the camera is set to the minimum aperture setting. i.e. f22,f32 (highest f stop number)

Err message in N60

If your lens is set to F/22 or the smallest available on your lens, this is not a user problem. Take it to your local camera repair shop ( usually $100 to $125 repair to phase or sequence switch ).
