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.

What does FEE mean? The camera won't take a picture and I see that in the display of my Nikon N90S


FEE error message displayed on SLR camera LCD Description 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.

My camera won't take pictures. Display reads fEE. Just bought new film and batteries.


Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest F/number). If the ring also has a lock, lock it in place. You control the aperture from the camera body, just as you would on 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

Camera wont let me take any pictures it just says FEE?


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.

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.

Minolta maxxum 7000 troubleshoot camera wont take pictures


There are several possible reasons, it could be the body or the lens. Check the shutter blades without film. Are they smooth and in place, (flat)? It could also be related to the film, a mis-load of the roll. The lens could have some failure, possibly try another.

Yes, on this camera you leave the aperture ring at f22 and use the camera's controls to set your f-stop. It won't work is you change the ring on the lens. You gain the control of the aperture in the 'M' and 'A' modes. The 'P' setting is for the camera to pick both speed and aperture for you. 'S' is shutter priority, etc
