Lens stuck on camera in wrong position

I installed the lens on my Nikon N65 camera incorrectly and now I cannot take it off. I push the lens relase button, but it won't release the lens from the camera body.

It may need professional help to remove it safely. If you try too hard to remove it yourself, either the aperture arm on the lens and/or the camera will get bent or damaged.

Nikon N65 with Nikkor 35~80mm AF lens will not focus or shoot


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).

Flashing err on nikon n50


Hi Jennifer,
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.

Cordially,

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.

I have a nikon n65 and there is a blinking F- - what does that mean?


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.

What does fee mean ?


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.

It keeps flashing "FEE" in the information screen. What am I doing wrong?


It is indicatin that there is a problem with the aperature coupling to the lens.

If the lens has an aperature control ring twist it round to either the samllest f-stop ( largest number ! ) or to the 'A' setting is it has one.

If it is a later lens that does not have a ring, try twisting the lens off and on a few times to clean the contacts, or wipe the contacts on the back of the lens and body with a dry rag.

There should also be a switch arm to the left of the lens mount, at about the 8 o'clock position - this should be pushed by the lens in the conditions above - make sure it is not jammed.

Every time i load my n65 and try to take pictures it blinks F E E and wont let me take pictures. what am i doing wrong?


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.

You might not have your lens set to the minimum aperture setting (the largest number) if it is a non-G lens.

PICTURE


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.

Nikon N65 Unable to take picture


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
