N65s were notorious for bad shutter release buttons. The metal is thinner than a strand of hair and they break. Search Ebay and see if the part is available to replace (note: Nikon stopped selling parts last year).
Not too sure what that is, but first thing I would check is that you lens is set to its smallest aperture, such as f/22. Many times that err message means the lens is not closed down all the way. After closing the lens down the camera dials will set the aperture. Also, on many Nikon D type lens, not the G type, there is a small push pull button to lock the lens as it smallest opening.
The F-- indicates that the camera isn't communicating with the lens. If you have an old mechanical lens with no electronics, you'll have to set the camera to the Manual exposure mode (turn the mode dial to M) and shoot without any help from the camera's light meter.
If you're using a newer AF lens with electronics, clean the electrical contacts on the back of the lens and in the mount on the camera body.
It means that you have fitted a lens which has a manual aperture control and have not turned the aperture ring to the smallest setting (highest number). The F65/N65 controls the aperture from the camera body instead, via the command wheel.
If this is not the answer, then the tiny switch at about the 7 o'clock position (as you look at the front of the body lens mount) which senses that the aperture has been set to minimum has either failed or has sheared off completely. If so, your camera is totally uneconomic to repair as it's easy enough to get perfectly good N65/N75 and similar models for nothing via your local Freecycle and Freegle groups.
This error relates to the lens not being mounted correctly
if you've got a non G-series lens
(it HAS an aperture ring), you'll get the F EE message if the lens
isn't stopped down to 22, and you're not in M mode. Also check the
contacts on the lens... make sure they're clean. Normally, the CHA
error will pop up if it's a CF card problem.

vickiep24, Since you didn't mention anything about shooting in manual settings I'm going to guess you have been and the camera work there in shutter or aperture mode, so make sure you set your lens's F-stop back to the auto position - check the dot on the lens ring with the f-stop numbers (usually in red) like the f-22 make sure they are aligned when in auto so when the camera needs more light and the lens can fully open to give it the light it is asking for, then it will shoot otherwise it won't. Does that make sense. randy320sgi
Hey colettekm, What this message should mean is that a non G-type Nikon lens is being used and its aperture is not set to smallest aperture which would be the largest number on the aperture ring on the lens. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
