That usually means that the lens you have mounted on the camera is not set to its smallest aperture (ie 22). It needs to be set that way so that the camera can control the full spectrum of aperture positions when shooting in one of the auto program modes.

Why is the LCD flashing Fee and wont take a picture?


Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest aperture (largest f/number). Lock it in place if there is a lock. You control the aperture from the camera as you would with a lens without an aperture ring.

I just picked up this same product at a yard sale and when i turn it on, i cant take a picture In the screen, above the battery sign it says FEE, what does that mean?


The FEE means that the camera is not communicating with the lens. This can happen for several reasons.

1) The lens doesn't have the electronics to communicate with the camera. You can use such lenses, but you'll have to shoot in Manual mode and the camera's meter will not function.

2) The electrical contacts are not making good contact. Remove the lens and clean the contacts on the back of the camera and in the mount on the body. You can also try gently jiggling the lens after you remount it.

3) Either the lens or the camera (or both) need servicing.

I got and fEE... and figuered out it means error!!


This might be a long shot, but on the lens section of the guide shown below, it notes ,,,,

Non-G lenses will have an aperture ring on the base of the lens where it's attached to the camera. Set this this ring to the smallest aperture (largest number), usually in orange and 16, 22 or 32. There usually is a lock to keep this ring set there, since if it comes off that setting you'll get an error message (fEE) from most cameras.

Hope this helps

Nikon N65 won't take picture


The problem is, that you have a lens witch has an aparture ring on it and some exposure modes needs it to be fixed on the smallest aparture (e. f22). When its done the camera should not say fEE no longer.

Wont take pictures


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.

My camera won't load film


Set your lens to the smallest aperture ( largest number on lens ) f/22 or f/32 and lock it in place with the small latch on the aperture ring. The camera won't operate in auto modes without the lens set there.

Error Code FE E


Make sure the F-stop ring on the lens is turned to the minimum aperture setting. Usually 22 or 32. The camera won't allow you to shoot unless it is. It will try to warn you by flashing the FEE code.

Fee to error


Remove the batteries for 5 or 10 minutes. Remove the lens from the body and replace it. Make sure the lens is on f22 before you put the batteries back in and turn on the camera. If this doesn't solve it, try rewinding the film you have in the camera and try a new roll. The other thing to check if none of the above works is to remove the lens and check the small tab just on the outside of the mount ring at about 7:00. The tab is spring loaded and you should be able to push it with your finger and it will snap back. If it doesn't, the tab plate will need repaired or replaced

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.
