Question about Nikon F5 35mm SLR Camera
It is possible to damage Nikon SLRs by attaching them to certain older pieces of equipment. There are two main issues that you may encounter.
There are a series of contacts inside the lens mount that must be in good condition for correct operation of the camera. If the older gear causes these to bend or break, the camera will require repair. Look inside the lens mount using a flashlight to see if there is any sign of scraping or that the contact pins look damaged.
Many Nikon SLRs have a ring on the outside of the lens mount that has a small tab sticking up. The ring is supposed to rotate freely and the tab should interface with part of a Nikkor lens of AI-S or AF vintage. Earlier non-AI-S lenses or accessories could compress the ring or break the pin or both. If you can get the ring to rotate freely again, you might be able to get the camera to function. If the tab is broken or the ring is stuck or both, your camera will need professional repair.

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.
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.
