Re: 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

You need to turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and lock it in place if the lens has an aperture lock. You control the aperture from the camera, the same was as on a lens without an aperture ring.
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.
The blinking FEE message means the aperture ring is not set to minimum aperture (highest number). Turn the aperture ring to the highest number, and then find the aperture lock -- either a little slider or a button you press and turn. That will keep it from accidentally changing again.
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.
If the error message is on the left hand side of your LCD monitor then your shutter is not coming on line and it might be the 'reset' switch in the back cover locking mechanism that needs replacing.
If the error message is on the right hand side of the monitor then this is because the F - stop on your lens is not set to highest setting ( 16 or 22 ) . Set your lens to highest setting and check again to see if error ( FEE ? ) disapears.
