I received a Nikon N60 from a friend who was going to digital. I do not have a manual with it. I put new batteries in it and put in a new roll of film. All I get is an fEE error and nothing else. The autofocus works but thats it. Any suggestions?
Basically, with certain types of lenses you need to set the aperture ring on the actual lens to its minimum setting (f22 or f32). Once it is set here, the camera can then control the aperture. It's covered on page 16 of the manual.

Set the lens f/stop to the largest number such as f/22 (smallest diameter). Many cameras with automatic exposure must have the f/stop set to the largest number on the lens, or turn off auto focus do manual focus.
It means the lens aperture ring isn't locked. Turn it to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and lock it if the ring has a lock. You control the aperture from the camera body, just as you would with a lens without an aperture ring.

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.
