When on the image recording quality setting screen, use the main dial to select RAW (go all the way to the - sign on the left to turn off RAW), and use the multicontroller left/right to select JPEG settings. See page 116 in the manual.
Not too sure what that is, but first thing I would check is that you lens is set to its smallest aperture, such as f/22. Many times that err message means the lens is not closed down all the way. After closing the lens down the camera dials will set the aperture. Also, on many Nikon D type lens, not the G type, there is a small push pull button to lock the lens as it smallest opening.
The switch to the right of the Quick control dial is the on off switch for that dial, to the lower left is the camera on/off switch. If the camera was left in the "A" position the LCD panel on the top will drain the battery always set the camera to the "L" position when not in use
You should be able to take the camera off of the FULL AUTO mode (the green square) and put it on "P" mode (program mode), which is full auto except for flash. Then if you keep the flash open it should always use it.
I'm not familiar with your exact model so what follows is generic to many film SLR cameras and assumes that the camera is already empty:-
Open the back of the camera by pulling upwards the rewind crank on the top left hand end of the camera (as viewed from behind). The back of the camera should pop open a little, open it all the way.
Before fitting the film, check if the film can is DX coded. It will have DX printed on it somewhere if it is, but will also have a large area bare metal squares interspaced with printed black squares or rectangles. if the film is not DX coded then look for an ISO number, ASA number or DIN number and note it somewhere.
Drop the roll of film into the space at the left of the camera, and push the rewind crank back down to secure the film canister. Pull out the film leader across to the right hand end of the camera. Often there are printed instructions or diagrams showing what to do. Your camera probably has an easy loading system in which you pull the film leader until it's level with a printed line and then close the camera back until it clicks.
Turn the camera on, normally it will staert whirring as it autoloads the fil onto the take up spool. If successful the number one will appear in the film counter display within a few seconds. If not then open the camera back and try again.
What you do next depends on whether the film is DX coded or not. There will either be a dial or a menu item which allows you to set the film speed, for DX coded films set the control to DX or to AUTO. If the film is a rare non DX-coded one then you need to set the speed manually. Select the correct ISO number in the menu. If your film had an ASA number then use it as an ISO number and if it had a DIN number then look up DIN to ISO conversion online.

Take the lens off and look at the lens opening on the body - at the 9 o'clock position is the aperture stopdown lever. It should be square to the edge - not bent sideways or too far from the side. It's a pretty flimsy lever and easily bent. You can bend it back square by grabbing with pliers and pushing toward the left side. Common problem.
Ok, I'll break it down for you. Look down on top of the camera. On the right hand side, there is the shutter button. Just to the left of the shutter button is a small lever. It is between the shutter button and the camera...but it's part of the shutter button. Move the lever to turn it on and off.
try to set the itty ***** red dot to 0 again make sure the collar goes down its the compensation mode once its down try turning the speed dial again i haven't had a film camera for about 8yrs i had a nikon 6060 which is almost like a fg . hope this helps
Your problem could be caused by one of several things. The lens may be out of adjustment or have a loose mount. The camera also had problems with the mirror hinges. Look into the mirror area with the lens off to see if the mirror is square within the mount ring.
