    May I assume that this camera/lens combination has worked in the past? If so, detach the lens, clean the contacts on the back of the lens and in the mount on the camera, then reattach the lens. Does this help?

    What lens?

    The error message is indicating a lens mismatch. If the lens is a CPU lens, try removing it and cleaning the contacts before reattaching it. Jiggle the lens a bit to seat the contacts.

    Does that help?

The F-- indicates that the camera is not communicating with the lens. There are several reasons for this.

The lens is not capable of communicating. If it's an old lens, without the electrical contacts, then you'll have to set the camera to Manual (M) mode in order to use this lens.

If the lens has an aperture ring, set it to the smallest aperture (biggest F/number) and lock it (if it has a lock).

If the lens has no aperture ring, then the contacts may be dirty. Remove lens, clean contacts on back of the lens and in the mount on the body, then reattach lens.

If that doesn't do it, then either the camera and/or the lens may require service.

Nikon F100 does not advance film to start of roll,


Jim, it really sounds like one of threethings. Either will require a repair shop.
1. the film sensor is not recognizing film in the film chamber, or film across the back, therefore not telling the advance motor to advance film...
2. The film advance motor itself needs replaced.
3. The rear door latch switch needs replaced.
Since everything else seems to do OK, I doubt the main computer board is bad.

How do i read a light meter on a Nikon N55? i see the f stop but i dont see the shuter speed, how do i adjust and how do i know its right?


Your camera is either fully automatic or fully manual. In addition it has shutter priority and aperture priority semi-automatic functions. With shutter prior. you pick the shutter speed you prefer and the camera will adjust the aperture. With Aperture prior it works the other way around. The exposure will be always the optimum (decided by the camera program).
You can adjust these automatics with the program dial.

Shutter speed


When you set the camera to "Full Manual" mode, you should be able to dial in your shutter speeds, for most film cameras, including the N55 30 Seconds is the slowest shutter speed. If your camera features a "Bulb" mode, then the shutter stays open as long as you are holding down the shutter release button.

Can't find manual for instructions Nikon N55


If you want to rewind manually, you need to press two buttons simultanously. Turn the power on. First, hold "BKT" button just above lens release knob then press the button "+/1" just next to the shutter release. Both button will have red rewind sign next to them. -James

My nikon n55 is flashing err after installing new film


It could be that your camera doesn't know it's rewound the film already. With the camera turned on, push and hold BOTH manual rewind buttons simultaneously - one near the release button ( +/- ) and the other toward the front of the camera at the lens release button. Try the release button again.

Nikon N55 Won't take picture in Auto Focus Mode?


There was a recall on the N55 due to auto focus problems. You can do a google search or nikon.com email the support team and they will send you the paper. This is what I did, I wasn't charged since I had the correct papers. I, however, used one roll of film and my focus went out again! Mine doesn't even work on manual... If you want to try that maybe you will hae better luck than me. GOOD LUCK!
