The contact in the lens is the ground contact. If it does not touch the camera mount the camera will, give an error code and not operate. Remove lens mount and check pin spring operation. If stuck slightly enlarge hole

Nikon N65 won't take a picture


If you have the lens set to the lowest number, you should be seeing a FEE error on the display. The lens needs to be set to the highest number, typically 16 or 22.

Camera won't take pictures


On page 256 of the D-90 users manual it says that ERR indicates a camera malfunction that can be cleared by releasing the shutter. On my D-90 when this occurs, I have to turn the camera off to make the shutter release. Sometimes, but rarely, I have to remove and reinstall the battery to get the shutter to release.

The manual also says that if this error occurs frequently or persists to contact n authorized Nikon service center. I suggest that you contact Nikon tech support at www.nikon,com before you contact a service center to see what tech support advises. I have heard of people resolving this problem by upgrading the firmware (camera software). Nikon tech support can tell you if this will help.

This information works for my D-90 and could work for your D-40

Shows err on displaycant take picture


This message covers a wide range of problems and when it does appear, the camera locks up until you turn the camera on and off again. But this error indicates a problem(s) ranging from poor / dirty mating electrical contacts between camera body & lens (this inhibits communications between the two); to a shutter malfunction. It is pretty common for it to be dirty contacts on the lens mount opening on the camera body or on the lens itself. When this is the cause of the error, it is almost always fixed with a good deep cleaning. But it can also be more serious, so it doesn't hurt to contact Nikon if you are worried.

Try these suggestions from Nikon first:

  • Remove all accessories from the camera.
  • Install a freshly charged battery into the camera.
  • If your Nikon camera offers resets such as the two-button reset or a hardware reset please follow those instructions provided in the product manual.

Grab a copy of the manual here. Good luck!

Lens error. lens is currently retracted. will not open. nikon s8100 bought xmas 2010.


Had issue with lens stuck and not retracting on nikon s8100. first removed battery. then manually (gently) rotated lens counterclockwise until lens seated in fully retracted position. inserted battery, turned camera on and camera operational again. I suspect that root cause of lens jamming was turning off camera while simultaneously moving zoom lever

Nikon D80 error msg "F--" and "r02"


Remove the lens, clean the contacts, reattach the lens, and jiggle the lens to seat the contacts. If that doesn't fix it, either the camera or the lens may require service.

Seeeking help with new CoolPix L10 "Lens Error"


I sorry to tell you that the user manual is correct. There would be little you could do yourself and if you would attempt any repairs, you would void your warranty.

To make the best of a bad situation, I recommend setting the camera to its highest resolution mode and taking all your picture in the wide angle mode. You can crop the larger images when you get back home and still have printable pics

Won't Take Picture Sometimes


I have the same problem with my D50. I believe it is caused by poor electrical contact between camera and lens. The contacts may be dirty but I have tried cleaning them and I still get the same error. Moving the lens often solves the problem. This led me to suspect that it is due to slight wear of the plastic mounting bayonet on the lens. This allows the lens to fall slightly and disengage from the contact pins. My 70-300mm lens has no problems since it only uses a few pins.
