Sounds like the AI ridge on the aperture ring may be slightly damaged. The D200 senses when the lens is set at minimum aperture using that ridge. The AI ridge is the raised part on the back edge of the aperture ring. On that lens, the contact edge is between f/11 and f/16, closer to the 16. Look closely at that edge, it should be smooth with even corners. Since it works a bit if you jiggle the ring, it sounds like maybe just a little piece missing. If it's damaged, replacement is pretty your only option.

With the lens off, look at the camera mount area. If you are looking straight at the mount, there is a small tab sticking out at about 7oclock on the outside edge of the mount ring. The tab is spring loaded and may be damaged. You should be able to push the tab toward the base of the camera and it will snap back if functioning properly. If it feels loose or doesn't spring back, then switch that ab controls is not being activated.

EE NIKON D 200


Do you mean "fEE"?

You're apparently using a lens with an aperture ring. Turn the ring to its smallest setting (largest f/number). If the lens has an aperture lock, lock it. You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as on a lens without an aperture ring.

I used my 80 - 200 f2.8D ED nikon lens on my D200 body, There is " fEE" blinking sign on it. But if i use my 18-70 lens there is no problem. What wrong with my lens ?


nothing is wrong with your lens. when you mount the 80-200 make sure the aperture ring is set on the highest f-stop (F22 or F32). there is a small lock that will lock the aperture ring in this position. if the camera thinks the ring is not in the "highest" "F" position you will get the error.

Have a close look at the iris ring to see if any think is broking off
or try moving the lens when it is locked on the camera to see if you lose the fee if so it may need a new mount

You may want to check what the aperture ring is set at on your 85mm. Nikon SLRs for most purposes, require that the f-stop on the lenses be set at the minimum aperture number, ie f-16,22,32. This is so the camera has the full range of the aperture to control it properly. Most if not all lenses for Nikon have a small button, usually marked with orange, to lock the aperture ring at that setting

D200 will not turn on


Have you checked for dirt in the camera battery compartment. Take some high powered air spray and blow it clean. See if that fixes it.

Very soft focus on D200


Hi Amanda, welcome to FixYa.

Try this to fix your focusing issue. It's a custom AF setting.
Press the Menu and select the pencil icon. Then you'll see Custom Setting Menu on the LCD display. Click down to Autofocus and then click to the right.
There are 3 choices here: FPS Rate, FPS Rate + AF, and Focus.
Set it to Focus.
FPS Rate is the default setting, the camera will take 5 frames per second whether it's in focus or not.
FPS Rate+ AF forces it to slow down hoping to get more frames in focus.
Focus sets the camera to fire only when in perfect focus. It slows you down some, but it will save you from deleting all the blurry ones.

Try this and let me know if it works for you with a comment.

Ken Rockwell has alot of tips and tricks (including the one I just gave you) in a pdf telling all about your camera. You can read it here. http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/d200/users-guide/d200-users-guide.pdf

Nikon d200 sprayed with water


I would suggest that you give the contacts a good clean (gently of course) on both the camera body and lens'.

Also although the water would make no difference, make sure if you have any lens' with aperture rings to put them round to F33 or the smallest aperture, if they aren't this will cause the fEE.

Hope this helps

80~200 not focusing on my D200


If lens has aperture ring, set to min aperture before mounting (f22 etc)
With heavier lenses it is not so easy to tell when lens clicks in all the way to mount, Lens wont autofocus if not clicked in to mount just so. Also both camera and lens should be set to AF.

I'll offer the same answer I just gave on a D200 question: With the lens off, look at the camera mount area. If you are looking straight at the mount, there is a small tab sticking out at about 7oclock on the outside edge of the mount ring. The tab is spring loaded and may be damaged.

Quantaray 28-90 for Nikon N65 zoom ring locked up


There is no secret locking switch. If a little gentle jiggling doesn't free the zoom ring, then I can only suggest you take it in to a reputable camera shop for a Clean-Lubricate-Adjust (CLA).
