FEE error message

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.

My Nikon F80 won't load y film automatically, it has a FEE error on the screen but i don't know what that is??

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.

I have a Nikon N90S, and it stopped taking pictures after 15 shots. We stopped using the camera, and used our backup to finish the shoot. I thought that maybe the roll of film jammed, but when I...

Have you tried replacing the batteries? It sounds like the batteries may just be too low to wind film, but can function without a load.

I can't remember if the N90S has the vertical grip release or not, but if it does, have you attempted to use it, to see if the camera functions from that release, or on fully manual settings with a cable release? Are there any error messages reading out on the LCD top panel or in the viewfinder? Are you using an attached flash? What settings are you using?

If it's not functioning, on any settings including manual with film loaded, then it's most lilely in need of a visit to a repair shop to figure out where the issue lies.

But, I'd try new batteries first.

The error film loading message appears and I have reloaded the film several times and it will not advance. Help

sounds like the film advance motor died needs repairing at a qualified shop if you think the camera is worthy, since its old how much is it worth to you vs a new one

Nikon F100 does not advance film to start of roll,

Jim, it really sounds like one of threethings. Either will require a repair shop.
1. the film sensor is not recognizing film in the film chamber, or film across the back, therefore not telling the advance motor to advance film...
2. The film advance motor itself needs replaced.
3. The rear door latch switch needs replaced.
Since everything else seems to do OK, I doubt the main computer board is bad.

FEE flashing above where # of pics is showing


Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

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.

Turn the camera on. Open the back. Insert film, pull it across to the red mark. Close the back.

Camera should load automatically.

My camera won't load film

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.

Fee to error

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
