My batteries died while loading new film. Managed to get new batteries (I´m on Easter Island) and loaded new film but each time I try to take a picture, an fEE message appears above the shot number. Help! I´d like to take some pictures while I´m here!

Re: fEE error message
To get rid of the pesky fEE just set your lens to f22 or f16 ( depending on what lens you have ) and that is all. You might also want to lock this setting in ( if it is a Nikon lens then the lock is on the side just above the lens aperture ring.

The lens you are using has the aperture ring set to something the camera cannot use. Simply turn the aperture ring to the largest number, usually a 22 or 32. Lock that ring if there is a lock and the fee should be gone.
First, remove the remaining films from the camera. (while your camera is switched off)
Second, press on both the shutter button and the power button at the same time. (to reset)
Third, reload a new set of polaroid films into the camera.
Hope it helps!
If you get an "E" after loading the film it means that the camera is still Empty and the film has not loaded properly. The most common cause is that the leader has not been pulled out enough past the red mark. I also like to place a sprocket hole on a sprocket tooth (I assume here that the N80 uses a sprocket drive system like other Nikons). When loaded properly the film should advance to frame #1.
Your "FEE" error is something else again and has nothing to do with the film. Apparently the film was properly loaded if you got that also. "FEE" is an aperture error which you get most commonly when you are in one of the auto modes (P or S) and you don't have the lens aperture set to the smallest aperture (largest number, usually f22). Set the aperture ring on the lens to the highest number.

I had the same problem with my 2007 Equinox, 6 cd changer. I changed the oil, disconnected the battery as recommended. When I reconnected the battery, the single cd wouldn't come out. It was out of warranty so I ordered a complete new cd player from ebay, I installed it, spent the $120 for the dealer to unlock it, just to find out....It won't let me load any cd's. Every time I hit load, it appears as if it is gonna load, but the motor inside never activates. Let me know if you find the solution to your problem.
Error code 5100 also come with LED alarm flashes in Orange/Green 2 times. This error happens when carriage part (carriage unit) is faulty so that
carriage part cannot read film encoder properly. As a result, carriage
part move on uncontrolled. But,in some cases,
dirty film timing **** strip (Horizontal film encoder;available only in
i series and above) may cause the same symptom. Try to clean film encoder by wiping it with moistened clothe first.
Set your lens to the smallest aperture ( largest number on lens ) f/22 or f/32 and lock it in place with the small latch on the aperture ring. The camera won't operate in auto modes without the lens set there.
Hey sonax, This H error message means either the film is loaded incorrectly, or there is an internal malfunction in the camera. To determine if the film is loaded incorrectly you should take the film and the batteries out of the camera then reinstall the batteries and try taking a picture without film in the camera. If the camera allows it then the film was loaded incorrectly and I would refer to the camera manual for directions on how to load the film correctly. If the H error message persists then there is most likely an internal malfunction and I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

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).
Remove the batteries for 5 or 10 minutes. Remove the lens from the body and replace it. Make sure the lens is on f22 before you put the batteries back in and turn on the camera. If this doesn't solve it, try rewinding the film you have in the camera and try a new roll. The other thing to check if none of the above works is to remove the lens and check the small tab just on the outside of the mount ring at about 7:00. The tab is spring loaded and you should be able to push it with your finger and it will snap back. If it doesn't, the tab plate will need repaired or replaced
