Camera locked up and won't work

Display shows fEE sign and won't respond to any trouble shooting
directions in the owners manual. At first it would only work on manual setting and then it wouldn't work at all.

    I have the N80 Nikon and it does not have a button battery.

    The batteries are good in the camera. This camera takes 2 Lithium 123 batteries.

    Thanks for your help, tho.

    response to cammedic:

    My camera has the Tiffen 28-300 lens.

  • PHOTO GRANNY Feb 19, 2008

    You are right - I read the filter name instead of the lens name.

    It is a Tamron 28-300 lens.

    The lens aperature was not set at 22 - I did that and it did come on again. THANKS. I was in the middle of a convention to do photos and that is the first time I had this problem. Of course I had not used my camera for over 6 months so that was part of the problem of my not remembering how to use it.

    oh< oh....I put the flash unit on and it is again back to the fEE flashing. When I take the flash on it is O.K. NOW WHAT??

  • PHOTO GRANNY Feb 19, 2008

    I do not see any name on the flash - but - it is a Auto Focus with a zoom head Module NK - I think it was orginally for my Minolta and then when I got the Nikon they put a compatible mount to use it on the Nikon.

    Everything has worked fine up to just last week. But of course as I had stated before, I haven't used it too much since June.

    I have had the flash unit since about 1997. The Nikon was purchased in 2002.

    Hey!!!That was the solution - the TTL was set on manuel also.....I think maybe when I was trying to take night photos of the eclipse, that I screwed things up back then and didn't check to be sure everything was back to where it should be.

    Tiffen makes filters, not lenses Tamron perhaps? like this one?

    Tamron 28-300mm

    Is the aperture/fstop ring set to 22?

Well, without it being a true Nikon Speedlight, I would be guessing as to what to look for on the strobe to tell you where to set it.

Normally, there is some type of setting for 'TTL'. Since the flash is a multi use type (Minolta,Nikon), it may be labeled something else.

You should be able to download the owner's manual at the Electrolux website. If not, you can find the owner's manual at several websites that charge a small fee for the download.

Normal cycle will not start and keeps beeping

Count the pattern of beeps and refer to the trouble shooting section of your owners manual. Beeps are trouble codes on digital appliance control panels. If that doesn't work kill the power for 2 minutes and try again. After that go to enter your model number in the trouble shooting section and follow directions.

My Nikon Coolpix S8000 self timer is not working

There can be many reasons why you don't see a thing. Be sure you put the camera in record mode (not display mode) make sure the display setting is bright enough to see what is on the screen.
Make sure your camera is not connected to a PC, with a USB cable.
And don't try to use the camera while charging, because the display won't show anything at all.
I hope something over here you recognise?
If not, try the manual, Page 155 trouble shooting.

Shutter release not responding

Hi tmclaughlin0, In the camera is in AF-S mode, the camera will not shoot until it acquires focus. Look on page 29 of the D80 manual.

I have a code fEE. I can't shoot. What's up?

Usually means that you have a lens with the aperature in the wrong setting for use on an auto aperature camera. Look at the lens and move the aperature setting to the red marking.

Don't feel bad, this one got me for about a half a day two different times the first time I put on my new 50mm f1.8 lens. Great lens, but I'd never had an "old style" lens before.

Just for reference, if you put an old manual lens on your D80, it will show F-- in the aperature display and won't take pictures except in "M".

A "hand" symbal appears when I take pictures.

Fortunately I was able to locate my owner's manual. On page 82 of the manual it depicted the warning display that concerned me. The explanation: Tjere is a stronge liklihood of camera shake because the shutter speed is slow. Remedy: Use flash photography. However, use a tripod for some scenes ans modes.

Thanks so much for your prompt respond to my issue of concern.

Here is where you can download a copy of the manual from:
Fuji S2 Manual
This is what the manual says about your error:
If FEE in in top display: "CPU Nikkor lens other than G-type
is not set to its minimum aperture. Fix: Set lens to minimum aperture."
If FEE is in viewfinder: "Attached flash is not set at TTL
Auto Flash in “P” mode. Fix: Set the external flash mode to TTL, or set the camera’s exposure mode to “S”, “A” or “M”."
Are you using a flash that attaches to the camera?
If not, then the problem is with the aperture setting. It looks like you would have to set the camera dial to M, for Manual, and use the ring on the lens to set the aperture.
The low battery symbol looks like a battery, all black when charged, half-black as power goes down.
This looks like a nice camera, hope I was able to help.
