Question about Nikon N55 35mm Film Camera
I bought this camera only a few days ago. When I get ready to take a picture the symbol F----- flashes, it won't let me take a picture. What is the problem?
What lens are you using? Do you have other lenses you can try?
The F-- indicates that the camera and the lens are not communicating. There are several reasons for this:
1. The lens is not electronic. All lenses before the advent of autofocus fall into this category, as well as some of the newer ones. The only way these lenses can be used is in Manual (M) mode, without any assistance from the camera's light meter.
2. The lens has a locking aperture ring. In this case turn the aperture ring to the smallest aperture (largest f/number) and lock it. You control the aperture via the command dial on the camera body.
3. The contacts are dirty. Remove the lens, clean the contacts on the back of the lens and on the mount, then reattach the lens and see what happens.
4. The lens and/or camera body needs service.
