Question about Nikon D3 Digital Camera

Open Question

Nikon D3 showing a repeat fEE problem which I understand normally reflects non-alignment of the aperture ring at maximum f-stop. I have interchanged a number of standard and zoom lenses between my D3 and DX2 where the same lense works on the DX2 and shows the error message referred to on the D3.

SOURCE: LENSE

Make sure the aperture ring is set to the "A" position. If the lens doesn't have an auto aperture setting then I don't think the lens will work. There is a setting called "Using Aperture Ring" that you can setup using the menu and configuration that can be set to "Permitted" that will allow you to take pictures even if the aperture ring is not set on "A", but not sure how well this work for you, but should allow the shutter to work.

SOURCE: aperture

You need to set the aperture ring on the lens to the minimum f-stop number, i.e. f22,f32. The camera controls the aperture rather than a mechanical setting on the lens

Your aperture lenses should be set to the biggest f-stop (smallest aperture)

E33 error showing on my nikon d90


I can't find E33 in the manual. The manual although says in a note on Electronically-Controlled cameras:
In extremely rare instances, unusual characters may appear in the control panel and the camera may stop functioning. In most cases, this phenomenon is caused by a strong external static charge. Turn the camera off, remove and replace the battery, taking care to avoid burns, and turn the camera on again, or, if you are using an AC adapter (available separately), disconnect and reconnect the adapter and turn the camera on again. In the event of continued malfunction, contact your retailer or Nikon-authorized service representative. Note that disconnecting the power source as described above may result in loss of any data not recorded to the memory card at the time the problem occurred. Data already recorded to the card will not be affected. On the other hand, when you use a different lens, Something could go wrong. If F-- blinks, the camera means, there is no lens attached or a non CPU lens is attached. When your lens does not have a CPU, you only can shoot in the M-mode. Why not try the command rail in the M-Mode? When FEE appears, the Lens aperture ring is not set toy the minimum aperture. You should use the highest number on the aperture ring. Only on rare occasions the sensor for the aperture is broken and will give an error. Try moving the ring in the camera and see if the error stays when you turned the ring to the maximum.

Fee error on d300 with Sigma lens with aperture ring


Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and then forget it's there. You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as on lenses without an aperture ring.

Nikon n6006 fee


Unless the camera body is faulty (very common, the camera is long past its design life)then the FEE error occurs when you mount a lens which has a separate aperture ring (i.e.any non-G lens) and fail to set the aperture to it's smallest (highest number) setting.

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.

Displaying FEE


This problem is usually seen on Nikon models, but as your camera is basically a Nikon/Fuji hybrid it's not surprising that it's occurred on yours.

FEE usually means that you have not set the lens aperture ring to it's smallest (highest number) setting. Your camera needs this to happen in order for it to automatically control the lens aperture as it then allows the camera to utilise any aperture between the maximum and minimum settings.

If this doesn't fix your fault then try another Nikon AF lens; if the problem remains then you have a faulty camera body, usually a broken AI (auto indexing) post on the body which senses when the fitted lens has been set to minimum aperture.

Set your aperture to the maximu f stop number, that means the minimum aperture, and your camera will work. Take out the lens and align the ring to set it to the minimum aperture. I shall paste a link down here so that you can refer in detai.

FEE message in display when using 50mm lense


The FEE message indicates that the lens is not set to smallest aperture (highest number). The camera body expects this so it will have full control of the aperture. It sounds like you may be accidentally bumping or turning the aperture ring on the lens while using it or changing lenses. There is a little slide lock to lock it at f/22 to prevent this. Turn the aperture ring to 22 and move the slider so the white dot is next to the orange mark on the lens barrel.

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
