The camera does that part. You use the command dials on the camera to control the aperture. The Nikon system is set up so the f-stop locks at the highest number so the camera has the full range of the aperture. Unless you set the camera to manual mode, 'm', it will lock out the release. Metering will not function properly either.

Nikon 3100 won't take pictures using prime lens


Then do so. Turn the aperture ring to its smallest setting (largest f/number). You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same was as with a lens without an aperture ring.

The focus ring won't turn.


The focus ring on that lense will lock when the AF switch on the lens is on auto. Move the switch to manual and it will release the focus ring.

I can't get the minimum aperture lock to lock on my 70-210 f/4-5.6 AF Nikkor


What happens if you simply turn the aperture ring to its smallest setting (largest f/number)? Does it lock then?

Aperture lock tab annot be unlocked


Sounds like you have an early model Nikkor, There should be little round button that you have to push in to get it to unlock, And on some of them they would break off, look for hole on the aperture ring and take a pin and put in the hole and push in and the ring should move

I have the exact same problem


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.

Trouble with auto focus nikon auto nikkor 60 mm f2.8D


Lock it at f/32. Autofocus lenses have a lock for smallest aperture (highest number) because that is wht the camera body expects. The lock won't engage at any other position.

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.

Flashing " F EE" in the control panel


The setting should be the the other end of the scale, I.E. f16,f22. The lens needs to be at the smallest aperture opening size, not the wide open setting. The lens does have a small tab that will lock the ring in that position.

Fuji Finepix S1 Pro fE E blinking when turned on?


Might Help:
Notes on G-type Nikkor and other CPU Nikkor lens
The G-type Nikkor lens has no aperture ring; aperture should be selected from camera body. Unlike other CPU Nikkor lenses, aperture does not need to be set to minimum (largest f-number). CPU Nikkor lenses other than G-type Nikkor lens have an aperture ring. Set the lens aperture to its minimum and lock. When the lens is not set to its minimum aperture setting and the power switch is turned on, "fEE" blinks in the control panel and viewfinder and the shutter cannot be released.
