Re: it blinks F EE and won't let me take anything!
My F90x won't film advance at all. Batteries are charged, auto focus works but film won't budge forward. Help-- I have loved this camera for 12 years and I do use my digital Nikon 70s but I miss using film now and then.

Be sure your mode dial is not in the auto position. If it is, the camera will only function with the lense also locked to the auto position, which will either be the lowest aperture (highest number) or sometimes an "A" setting separate from the normal aperture settings. That's generally what this type of indication means on program/manual models - that you're trying to use manual settings, when the camera is set up for auto program exposure.
According to the manual, the only time the frame counter blinks, is when the back is open or partially open when attempting to rewind film. Push on the back to be sure it's properly snapped closed to see if that solves the issue.
Press the SET/timer button (top left of the camera, behind the FUNCTION button, marked SET with a one-handed clock icon) and confirm that the one-handed clock begins blinking on the LCD panel. While pressing the SET/timer button, rotate the command dial one click to stop it blinking. Proceed normally (frame and compose picture, half-press shutter release button to meter and autofocus, etc). Fully depress the shutter release button to take the picture after a ten-second delay.
If you need a manual, you can download one from http://www.butkus.org/chinon/nikon.htm . Look for "N70", which was the name used in the USA.
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.

FEE blinking is very popular symptom. Make sure your lens is set at F22. When the lens F/stop is set at other position, computer gets confused and says "hey, what you trying to do! set the lens at F/22!". This how Nikon designed it for N series. I don't like it but who am I? Now, if this is not, more likely you have shutter problem requiring diagnostic by a technician. James For futher assistance or free estimate at www.camerarepairjapan.com
You have to reset the rewind counter by pushing the two buttons simultaneously - one on the side of the lens mount, the other by the release button - red, cassette symbols. This tells the camera there's no film in it.
