I have nikon d80 with the fEE error code blinking... I know this means that the aperture is not locked at the 11 but it will not allow me to change the aperture settings. Please help.

To solve this all you need to do is turn the lens' aperture ring (the one nearest the camera body) to the smallest number (probably 22 or 32).

    That should read; the biggest number (which is the smallest aperture)

    Many lenses that have aperture rings also have a way to lock them 'stopped down'. Look for a rectangular tab next to the aperture ring. Turn the ring to the highest number, then flip or slide the lock. No more accidentally moving the ring (and so getting the 'FEE' error).

What does FEE mean? The camera won't take a picture and I see that in the display of my Nikon N90S


FEE error message displayed on SLR camera LCD Description If the cameras LCD screen displays "FEE" in the area where the aperture is normally displayed, please ensure that the lens is attached to the camera correctly. This error message will appear if the lens is not attached correctly to the camera or if you are not using a CPU lens such as the Nikon AF or Nikkor P lenses. Alternatively, if the lens has an aperture ring, it may not be set to f22 (or the highest aperture number on the aperture ring - normally marked in orange). Select the aperture number marked in orange on the lens and lock it using the aperture locking switch to prevent this occurring again.

The FEE error message

1157b.gif
Set to F22, or the highest aperture number - normally marked in orange. Note the locking switch.
If the above did not resolve the problem and you still experence the the error display FEE, please contact your local Nikon office. Before doing so please also check the following.

1157c.gif

1157d.gif That the EE servo coupling highlighted above on the lenses has not been broken. That the F-min switch highlighted above on the camera body has not been broken. If either of the two items above are broken please contact your local Nikon service center.

Error code eFF


This normally indicates that you're using a lens with an aperture ring, and the ring is not locked in position. Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and lock it if the lens has a lock. Control the aperture from the body, just as with a lens without an aperture ring.

If the lens doesn't have an aperture ring, could you reply to this post and specify what lens you do have on the D100?

Nikon D80. When i turn the camera on i cant shoot any photos in the top right corner of the display i get the letter F ee flashing


Page 132 of the D80 manual explains the FEE error: Lens aperture ring not set to the minimum aperture. That would be the largest number which may be 22.

I have copied and pasted someone elses problem, because it is the same one I am having. So if I want to use the aperture for taking Manual photos I cannot do this because when it goes off of F22, it reads...


Lock the aperture ring at its smallest opening (in this case, F22). Change the aperture setting by turning the subcommand dial (the one in front, unless you changed it in the setup menu).

Of course, you can only change the aperture directly in Manual and Aperture-Priority modes.

Sigma 18-300mm lens


The problem may be with the sigma's aperture ring. Try this:

- Turn camera off
- Turn the aperture ring clockwise and lock it
- Turn camera on

If this does not solve the problem, do it again but turn it counter-clockwise

Can't take a picture


Set your aperture to the maximu f stop number, that means the minimum aperture, and your camera will work. Take out the lens and align the ring to set it to the minimum aperture. I shall paste a link down here so that you can refer in detai.

My nikon d80 f number keep blinking. what should i do? it doesn t want to snap any picture.


The "fEE" error indicates that the camera is not communicating with the lens. The lens may not be attached to the camera properly, or if it has an aperture ring, it may not be set to f22 (or the highest aperture number of the lens) - which is normally marked in orange. Select this aperture and lock it using the aperture locking switch to prevent this from occuring again.

Our Nikon d1x won't take a picture. It gives me an FEE type of error and the battery flashes.


The blinking FEE message means the aperture ring is not set to minimum aperture (highest number). Turn the aperture ring to the highest number, and then find the aperture lock -- either a little slider or a button you press and turn. That will keep it from accidentally changing again.

F-100 Won't take any shots


fEE blinking is Nikon's error message for cameras that control the aperture from the body instead of the lens. You need to set the lens to the smallest aperture (and lock it there, if the lens has a lock for the aperture setting).
