Re: N80 camera

First, make sure that your lens is an AF lens (MF lenses won't meter with your camera). Next, be sure that the lens aperture ring is set to the smallest f-stop (highest number...usually f22 or f32). If something else is going on try to give some more detail.

I bought new batteries for my N65 and my camera keeps blinking ERR.

The manual mentions only 2 conditions where the Err message appears. First if it is Err + E at the same time, the film has not completely wound and needs to be reloaded.

If it is Err alone, the manual states to fire the shutter and see if the message remains. If it does, to contact a Nikon Authorized Service Rep.

I have the same problem. An N70 with the err message. If the rewind buttons are pressed (without any film in the camera) the camera tries to rewind but will only stop if the back is opened. I tried...

The Err message alone indicates that a malfunction has been detected, and the manual recommends to fire the shutter and check for the message to clear. If it does not, to contact a Nikon Service Rep.

If it is Err + E, the film did not advance properly and needs to be reloaded.

Just recieived a used Nikon N80 and it gives the message of open door.Frame counter and film indicator flashes when door is shut and no film is in in camera?

Confirm tht DX shows in LCD. If not then press and hold shift button then press ISO so "DX" appears.Open Camera Back. Insert film cartridge, pull film leader out to right and align with red index mark (inside film chamber on right). Make sure there is no slack in leader.Close camera back until lock release snaps closed. Fully depress shutter until film advances to first frame.
Confirm " 1" and film transport show in LCD. If Film is not loaded correctly, "ERR" show on LCD. Open cack and reload film.

Err message nikon f-100

Read pages 99-101 of the manual. There are numerous err messages referenced. Some blink others only have the E of Err blink and the like, all with different solutions. If you cannot find the manual call Nikon Film 1-800-645-6687.

When camera is turned on Err show on the screen.

The 'Err' message comes from the lens. Check to see that the aperture ring is correctly set on your lens.

'Err' & 'E"

Is the film loaded correctly? Have you tried reloading it? Also is it flashing DX too? That would mean the film speed is not DX coded so you need to set the film speed manually.

ERR message

unmount and remount the lens. Make sure you have the aperture ring on the lens set at the minimum f-stop number, ie f22, f32. There should be a small tab on the lens to lock the aperture ring in that position
