Uh, I'm going to ask a silly question and I mean no insult by it, but, uh....you did bring the end tab of the new roll of film all the way over to the winder spool and lay it flat against the gear teeth before closing the back?

Will a nikon n2000 turn on without a lens and film?


The camera should operate perfectly fine without a lens. It should also operate perfectly fine without film (other than for not taking any pictures, of course).
I know this is stupid, but make sure the batteries are inserted in the proper direction. Then make sure the film advance mode selector around the shutter release button is not in the "L" position. L is for Lock, S is for single-frame, and C is for continuous.

Nikon F100 does not advance film to start of roll,


Jim, it really sounds like one of threethings. Either will require a repair shop.
1. the film sensor is not recognizing film in the film chamber, or film across the back, therefore not telling the advance motor to advance film...
2. The film advance motor itself needs replaced.
3. The rear door latch switch needs replaced.
Since everything else seems to do OK, I doubt the main computer board is bad.

Error


You could try removing the batteries so that when it reboots it would be fresh without any memory of an error. However if it continues to show an error it is the camera having a problem.

I forgot how to load the film


Battery contacts corroded? If so add a few drops of rubbing alcohol on the solder joints and the contacts. Let dry over night and try again with fresh batteries

'Err' & 'E"


Is the film loaded correctly? Have you tried reloading it? Also is it flashing DX too? That would mean the film speed is not DX coded so you need to set the film speed manually.

Camera inoperable


According to the manual found here:
http://www.pentaximaging.com/files/manual/ZX50.pdf

It says, "If the film is not loaded properly, 'E' on the LCD panel blinks, indicating that the film is not loaded properly. Open the back cover and load the film once again."
