You might have the lens on incorrectly .
or bent /jammed the small bar that inserts with the lens.
take off the lens and look at the little silver /black bar that sticks out the back does it move easily and look at he corresponding lever in the front to the camera

Mikone n80 set to minimum aperture.

Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number).

The aperture ring is the movable ring on the lens closest to the camera body. It will typically have numbers like 2.8, 4, 5.6, 8, 11, and so on. The largest f/number will typically be 16, 22, or 32.

The shutter does not work. Fee appears on screen

This indicates that the aperture ring on the lens is not set properly. Turn the ring to its smallest setting (largest f/number). If the lens has a lock, set it. You can then control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as on a lens without an aperture ring.

I bought an older 28mm nikon lens for my d60. when i try to rotate the apertrure ring, the d60 screen says that the aperture must be set to the highest setting. am i stuck with this aperture...

Set the aperture to its smallest opening (largest f/number) and lock it. You can control the aperture from the camera, the same way you do it on a lens without an aperture ring.

I got and fEE... and figuered out it means error!!

This might be a long shot, but on the lens section of the guide shown below, it notes ,,,,

Non-G lenses will have an aperture ring on the base of the lens where it's attached to the camera. Set this this ring to the smallest aperture (largest number), usually in orange and 16, 22 or 32. There usually is a lock to keep this ring set there, since if it comes off that setting you'll get an error message (fEE) from most cameras.

Full guide is here:

Hope this helps

My Nikon N75 35mm SLR hasn't had any problems in the past, but I finished a roll of film yesterday and loaded a new one, then similarly to what a couple other people have described on here, the screen said...

Make sure the lens is set on the largest aperture number and locked to that setting. The camea if it cannot control the aperture will display ERR and lockup the camera until it can control the aperture. Take the lens off and make sure to lock it onto the camera so you can hear the locking pin click. The ERR is a lens (wrong series lens if you changed lenses) or the lens is not locked on correctly, or the aperture is not set correctly. After this it is a repair issue.

Error message shows F -- with lens attached. Lens was cleaned with compressed air, now willnot work. Lens type Nikon 28-80 AF

Check to see that the lens aperture ring is set to the smallest (largest numerical) aperture setting (usually f22 or such). Nikon AF cameras have to have their lenses set at the smallest aperture for most of their program modes to work. Nikon AF lenses have a small slide or twist lock adjacent to the aperture ring to lock it in place at the smallest aperture. This may have been unlocked during the cleaning.
Another possibility is that the lens's electrical contacts were damaged during cleaning, so the body is not "seeing" the lens. Do you have another lens you could attach to the body to test this theory?

My Nikon N60 35 mm camera shows the fEE message

Your lens is not set to the smallest aperture (highest number). Turn the camera off, rotate the aperture ring so the largest number is lined up with the mark on the top, push the aperture lock tab, and turn the camera back on. The aperture ring is the one closest to the camrea body with numbers like 4, 5.6, 8, 11 etc on it. The largest number will be 16, 22, or 32 for most lenses.  If it still doesn't work, turn off, remove & replace the lens, and recheck the aperture ring setting.

Nikon N80 w/ 24-50mm

Yes, that's normal. At 50mm the widest available aperture is f/4.5, and that works at the small end to make f/32 possible.

Yes, on this camera you leave the aperture ring at f22 and use the camera's controls to set your f-stop. It won't work is you change the ring on the lens. You gain the control of the aperture in the 'M' and 'A' modes. The 'P' setting is for the camera to pick both speed and aperture for you. 'S' is shutter priority, etc

Aperture priority not working...HELP!!

Hey Mike, This is an easy one. With the battery grip attached, you can only have either Shutter Priority or Aperture Priority work properly. You can change it with the custom function settings of the camera. So you can change it to work with Aperture Priority if you use that more so then shutter priority won't work. Brandon
