You must have your lens set to the minimum aperture setting for this camera to function. I.E. f22,f32. The aperture ring moves a small tab on the outside of the mount ring when in that position.

Hello, I am trying to figure out why it says Err at the top right corner of the screen, It wont let me take any pictures... I tried playing around with all the setting any everything, taking the film out...

The film is not inserted correctly. pull film leader out until it just reaches the red line on the take up spool, then close the bacl. "ERR" should be gone

My Nikon F55 shows 'Err' when i turn it on. The camera is inactive since. Can anyone help me understand and fix this problem ?

Its quite likely that the film transport motor is dead or at least the camera electronics thinks so. I assume you already tried new batteries. It sounds like a trip to repair shop is in order.

You might also be able to get another F55 body on Ebay to use as a source of parts since these are no longer in production.

Nikon N55 camera locks up

The F-- indicates that the camera is not communicating with the lens. There are several reasons for this.

The lens is not capable of communicating. If it's an old lens, without the electrical contacts, then you'll have to set the camera to Manual (M) mode in order to use this lens.

If the lens has an aperture ring, set it to the smallest aperture (biggest F/number) and lock it (if it has a lock).

If the lens has no aperture ring, then the contacts may be dirty. Remove lens, clean contacts on back of the lens and in the mount on the body, then reattach lens.

If that doesn't do it, then either the camera and/or the lens may require service.

My camera won't do anything but flash the Err message

Make sure the lens you are using on the camera is set to the minimum aperture setting. i.e. f22,f32 (highest f stop number)

Flashing Err and E/Error Problem

You might want to check the position of the aperture ring on the lens. If it is not set at the highest number, ( IE smallest aperture, f22,f32 ), then the camera will display that error message
