Nikon N65 won't take a picture

If you have the lens set to the lowest number, you should be seeing a FEE error on the display. The lens needs to be set to the highest number, typically 16 or 22.

Error: FEE on Nikon AF N6006 film camera with Nikon lenses.

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

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.

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

FEE flashing above where # of pics is showing


Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

If you get an "E" after loading the film it means that the camera is still Empty and the film has not loaded properly. The most common cause is that the leader has not been pulled out enough past the red mark. I also like to place a sprocket hole on a sprocket tooth (I assume here that the N80 uses a sprocket drive system like other Nikons). When loaded properly the film should advance to frame #1.
Your "FEE" error is something else again and has nothing to do with the film. Apparently the film was properly loaded if you got that also. "FEE" is an aperture error which you get most commonly when you are in one of the auto modes (P or S) and you don't have the lens aperture set to the smallest aperture (largest number, usually f22). Set the aperture ring on the lens to the highest number.

An error FEE Flashing comes when the camera is turned on

What lens?

If it's a CPU lens, remove the lens, clean the contacts, reattach the lens, and jiggle the lens to seat the contacts.

If it's not a CPU lens, you'll have to use it in the Manual (M) mode.

Nikon N65 won't take picture

The problem is, that you have a lens witch has an aparture ring on it and some exposure modes needs it to be fixed on the smallest aparture (e. f22). When its done the camera should not say fEE no longer.

Wont take pictures

The FEE error means that the lens aperture ring is not set to the smallest opening (highest number). The camera body needs it set this way so it has full control of the light reaching the film (or sensor). The lens has a lock mechanism to keep the aperture ring at the smallest opening so you don't accidentally move it when using or changing the lens. On older Nikon lenses, it's a little round button with a white arrow which you push down and rotate to match the arrow with an orange mark. On newer Nikon lenses it is a little slider with a white dot which you can move with your fingernail to match the white with the orange mark.

Error Code FE E

Make sure the F-stop ring on the lens is turned to the minimum aperture setting. Usually 22 or 32. The camera won't allow you to shoot unless it is. It will try to warn you by flashing the FEE code.

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.
