Question about Nikon N65 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

I can't see through the eyepiece of my new Nikon N65 too well

I understand that the aperture has to be set to F22 when the lens is locked into place and that the aperture is supposed to be changed with the command wheel. However, I can't really see anything if the aperture isn't open. I can't focus if I can't see. How can I get a bigger opening before taking a photo?

    It was an AF lens. I went back to them and it was actually defective. They ended up giving me a more expensive Minolta without making me pay the difference. In the end, I've had a lot of satisfying shots with the new camera so it all worked for the best.

The lens needs to be an AF model. If pre AF or New digital AF-S then that is the problem.

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

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.

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.

FE E code????


You're using a lens with an aperture ring. Turn the ring to set the aperture at its smallest opening (largest f/number) and lock it if the ring has a lock. You can control the aperture from the camera the same way as with a lens without an aperture ring, or let the camera control it.

I've been reading all the messages and Im getting the same FEE code. It works while manualy putting it on the F22 aperature setting. But I was wondering why I can no longer manualy control my aperature...


Leave the aperture ring at f/22. You can then control the aperture from the camera body, the same way you would with a lens without an aperture ring.

I have a Nikon D60 and have just bought a 50mm AF 1.8 D lens but find I can only use the aperture setting at 22. Is that right ?? why can't I use the other aperture settings ??


The D60 camera sets and triggers the aperture that you have selected (or the camera has selected if in auto mode) and sets the aperture as you take the picture. Moving the aperture ring on the lens will not work, in fact once you move it from the f22 position the camera will stop or possible show and error. on my older Nikon AF lenses there is a small lock to lock the aperture ring in the lowest position when mounted on a digital camera, it is found near the f2.8 side of the aperture ring. when you want to set the apertures manually, you put the camera in aperture or manual mode and set the aperture you want by moving the the rotating wheel on the grip part of the camera. the aperture you select will show in the window, you do not have to move the ring on the lens,it must remain the f22(highest numerical) position.

I keep seein fEE what does that mean


The F-- error message is indicating the camera and lens are not communicating. Either the lens is not designed with electronic contacts, or maybe the lens is not connected fully and clicked in to place. Make sure if the lens is a CPU lens, that it is completely connected onto the cameras bayonet lens mount. You will hear a "click" when the lens is locked in place. Alternatively, if it has an aperture ring, it may not be set to F22 or the highest aperture number - normally marked in orange - Select this aperture and lock it using the aperture locking switch to prevent this occuring again.

Error message shows F -- with lens attached. Lens was cleaned with compressed air, now willnot work. Lens type Nikon 28-80 AF


Check to see that the lens aperture ring is set to the smallest (largest numerical) aperture setting (usually f22 or such). Nikon AF cameras have to have their lenses set at the smallest aperture for most of their program modes to work. Nikon AF lenses have a small slide or twist lock adjacent to the aperture ring to lock it in place at the smallest aperture. This may have been unlocked during the cleaning.
Another possibility is that the lens's electrical contacts were damaged during cleaning, so the body is not "seeing" the lens. Do you have another lens you could attach to the body to test this theory?

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.

What does it mean when FEE is in the view finder


FEE means that your lens is not set to the smallest aperture setting. If you are using your camera's auto-focus mode, the lens must be set to the smallest aperture setting which, on your lens, is probably f22 (the smallest aperture is the largest number). Once you set the lens aperture, you should slide the aperture lock to the locked position. The aperture lock is located just right of your largest setting f3.5. This slider should line up with the orange line. To verify that the latch is engaged, try to change the aperture by rotating the aperture ring. In the locked position, the ring will not turn.

Nikon N65 Unable to take picture


Hey colettekm,
What this message should mean is that a non G-type Nikon lens is being used and its aperture is not set to smallest aperture which would be the largest number on the aperture ring on the lens. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
