This could be caused by dirty contacts between the lens and the camera body. Also could be a lens problem. Look at the small round contacts on the lens and the corresponding contacts inside the top area in the body (with the lens off). If they look dirty or discolored (should be silver and somewhat shiny) then clean up with a Qtip or VERY CAREFULLY with a clean pencil eraser. Don't get any eraser dust inside the lens or body. With a DX lens, there's not too much else that can go wrong, other than a lens problem.

Where is the aperture ring on d80 Nikon


If you are using an older lens the aperture ring will be close to the camera body when the lens is on the camera. In order to set the aperture with a D80 and older lens you must set the aperture ring to "22" or the highest number on the aperture ring available. For newer lenses there is no aperture ring. You set the aperture by setting the dial on the top left of the D80 to "A" for Aperture Priority. You then set the aperture by rotating the front dial on the right side of the camera under the shutter release button. On older lenses, after setting the aperture ring to the highest number, you then set the aperture in the same manner.

Hey there! I'm so glad for sites like these! Well, the point is, I got a FEE error on my NIKON D80 after putting on an old NIKON 28-85mm AF macro lens. Actually on aperture F22 it's working...


Leave the aperture ring on the lens at f/22. You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as on a lens without an aperture ring, by turning the command dial.

Err with f4 and r11 display


If your lens has an aperture ring, do note that most of these lenses require the ring to be locked at a certain position for it to work. In the course of using the lens, you may have accidentally unlocked the aperture ring and moved it out of position. This is a common problem.

To fix this error, try this:

1. Turn off camera
2. Turn the aperture ring clockwise and then lock it
3. Turn on the camera

If you still encounter the same problem, repeat the same steps but turn the aperture ring counter-clockwise. Hope this helps.

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.

Aperture priority malfunction


davidsucklin,
You can use the film lens with the D80, but it it not react to the same settings as it did with the film body, the multiplier factor for the focal length is going to be different and it may be stopped down a bit. When you are shooting in aperture mode are you adjusting your shutter and ISO? The camera and the lens have to be communicating the same info to one another inorder for it to work. First set the camera back to auto mode the check the shot to see the settings (f-stop, shutter speed) test them with different ISO's to see what the camera thinks the settings should be, then go back to manual on the camera and lens and try the shutter priority mode with the aperture ring set at the 2.8 to see if it works then change to Aperture mode with the same settings that can take the picture. If it doesn't work keep in mind som of the older D lenses will drop some functionality (like aperture) in certain configurations. You can verfify compatibilty of your specific lens on Nikon's support site.
