Nikon N60 SLR camera

When I turn on my Nikon N60 SLR camera, I get an error code FEE. After checking various website I realized that there is a small tab where camera lense lateches onto the camea. lower left corner if looking at the camea from front). This tab is spring loaded. I am missing the spring.

Any idea on how to replace the spring? Where do I get it from?

Please help.

Thanks

    I bulk load my own film with reusable canisters and I believe that the camera will not reconize the film without the printed barcode.

It is more likely that the tab has separated from the plate it slides on. The spring is attached to the plate with the tab sticking out from it. I have repaired these in the past by boring a small hole in the backside of the tab and use a screw to re-attach it.

    I realize you posted this question years ago. I've had the same problem for the past 24 hours and just found the solution. The N60 uses only DX film (I obtained this bit of info from the camera's owner's manual.) DX film has information about its ISO and number of exposures is encoded on the film cassette. There are contacts in the camera that interpert in info on the cassette. In order to bulk load it is necessary to use a DX cassette with the same ISO as the film you are bulk loading. Roll the same number of exposures as the film that was in the cassette. Questions: mikesartin(at)gmail.com

Nikon d50 fee error


Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and lock it. You control the aperture from the camera body, the same was as with a lens without an aperture ring.

I got the fEE symbol on my newly bought N60 camera body. What does it mean??


It means the lens aperture ring isn't locked. Turn it to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and lock it if the ring has a lock. You control the aperture from the camera body, just as you would with a lens without an aperture ring.

If you need a manual, you can download one from

I got and fEE... and figuered out it means error!!


This might be a long shot, but on the lens section of the guide shown below, it notes ,,,,

Non-G lenses will have an aperture ring on the base of the lens where it's attached to the camera. Set this this ring to the smallest aperture (largest number), usually in orange and 16, 22 or 32. There usually is a lock to keep this ring set there, since if it comes off that setting you'll get an error message (fEE) from most cameras.

Full guide is here:

Hope this helps

My Nikon N60 35 mm camera shows the fEE message


Your lens is not set to the smallest aperture (highest number). Turn the camera off, rotate the aperture ring so the largest number is lined up with the mark on the top, push the aperture lock tab, and turn the camera back on. The aperture ring is the one closest to the camrea body with numbers like 4, 5.6, 8, 11 etc on it. The largest number will be 16, 22, or 32 for most lenses.  If it still doesn't work, turn off, remove & replace the lens, and recheck the aperture ring setting.

My Nikon N60 shows an error code "FEE" when I turn it on. What's it mean; how to fix or get past it? Thanks, Ed


This usually happens if the lens you mounted on it has an aperture ring and the aperture is not set to its smallest opening (the largest number)

Nikon N60 fEE Issue


First of all, you can download a manual from here.

(http://www.devicemanuals.com/guide/Cameras/Nikon/Nikon-F60-N60-Instruction-Manual-TmpNMU5qUT.html)

Basically, with certain types of lenses you need to set the aperture ring on the actual lens to its minimum setting (f22 or f32). Once it is set here, the camera can then control the aperture. It's covered on page 16 of the manual.

Hope this helps,

Matt

Check your lens aperture ring setting. It must be set on the highest number I.E. f16,f22,f32..

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
