I know of three causes:-

1. The first depends on what type of lens you are using. If you have a lens with a manual aperture setting ring, you need to turn this to its smallest aperture (biggest number) and then move the small locking ab acoss to lock it in this position.

2. Its also possible you have a damaged lens. There is a small tab which fits into the body of the camera and these can be broken. If possible try with another lens.

3. In my case I saw this a few times and it was just caused by the contact between lens and body not being 100%. Tightening lens a little solved it on each occasion.

Hope one of these helps you.

Nikon D70 with brand new Sandik ultra11 2gb flash card error CHR


Go to the Nikon site and upgrade the firmware on your D70 to version 2.0.

Before doing that, try turning the camera off, wait a min, then back on. That sometimes clears the error. The D70 is having trouble reading the card(s) you're putting in. The upgrade fixes that.

FEE message in display when using 50mm lense


The FEE message indicates that the lens is not set to smallest aperture (highest number). The camera body expects this so it will have full control of the aperture. It sounds like you may be accidentally bumping or turning the aperture ring on the lens while using it or changing lenses. There is a little slide lock to lock it at f/22 to prevent this. Turn the aperture ring to 22 and move the slider so the white dot is next to the orange mark on the lens barrel.

The "For" message means you need to format the memory card.

Copy anything you don't want to lose off of the card.

Locate the LCD Illuminator Button (next to LCD on top) and the Shooting Mode button (next to Brackting button (BKT) on back). Next to both of these button should be the word "format".

Simultaneously press and hold both buttons for two seconds. The card will format. Once done, the LCD will display the number of pictures available to be taken on the card.

That means your lens is not set to the smallest aperture - f/22 or f/36. Turn your lens aperture ring all the way to set the smallest opening. Then the error will go away.

According to my information, the camera may need a new flash PCB (printed circuit board). Check the repair service search on this site for someone in your area. The part number for the circuit board is: 1S014-020-1 and runs about 50$
