Question about Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

1 Answer

I have a Nikon D80 with a 18-135mm lens. I recently got an F-- where the aperture should appear. The error message in the manual says that "No lens attached." I tried detaching and reattaching the lens numerous times. I also tried cleaning the contacts to no avail. The only mode that the shutter will release in is the Manual mode. While in the M mode I couldn't adjust the aperture.

SOURCE: Can't get F3.5 aperture on the 18-135mm kit lense on d80

You may be shooting auto and there is too much light. If you want to be sure you are shooting with 18mm @ f3.5 then shoot with aperture priority (the shutter speed will adjust automatically). Ususally at a wide focal length you would want a small aperature (smaller f-stop) so this should not really be a problem.

AF lenses normally have a subtle grinding noise when used. Make sure your AF switch is turned on. If this still does not work, you may wanna consider bringing it in for repair

Error message


Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number). You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same way as with a lens without an aperture ring.

The aperture ring is the one with a bunch of numbers on it such as 2.8, 4, 5.6, 8, 11, 16, and 22.

Nikon makes several different 85mm f/1.4 lenses, but it appears you're using one with an aperture ring. Turn the aperture ring to its smallest setting (largest f/number). You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same was as on a lens without an aperture ring.

What does FEE mean? The camera won't take a picture and I see that in the display of my Nikon N90S


FEE error message displayed on SLR camera LCD Description If the cameras LCD screen displays "FEE" in the area where the aperture is normally displayed, please ensure that the lens is attached to the camera correctly. This error message will appear if the lens is not attached correctly to the camera or if you are not using a CPU lens such as the Nikon AF or Nikkor P lenses. Alternatively, if the lens has an aperture ring, it may not be set to f22 (or the highest aperture number on the aperture ring - normally marked in orange). Select the aperture number marked in orange on the lens and lock it using the aperture locking switch to prevent this occurring again.

The FEE error message

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.

1157d.gif 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.

I just bought a Tokina 100mm f/2.8 AT-X M100 AF Pro D Macro Auto Focus Lens from B & H and put it on my Nikon D300. When I press the button a blinking FEE appears. What seems to be the problem?...


The FEE error indicates that the camera cannot control the full range of the lens aperture. If your lens has a mechanical aperture ring, rotate the aperture to its smallest opening, or highest f-number - normally marked in orange. Select this aperture and lock it using the aperture locking switch to prevent this message from appearing again.

I have just bought a 60mm micro lens. when i put the lens on my Nikon D50 the message FE3 appears on the screen. i have tried taking of the lense and putting it back on but the message still appears.


I hope you mean FEE.

Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number). If the ring has a lock, lock it in place. You control the aperture from the camera body, just as you would on a lens with no aperture ring.

Try shooting in manual mode with lens set at maximum (wide open) aperture. Then try at a smaller f-stop, say 5.6 or 8. If the error message appears when your lens is set to the smaller aperture, you could have a lens problem. Try another lens using the same test. If a known good lens gives an error message, then the problem is in the body. Also try zooming to different focal lengths and see if your 18-105mm gives the error at particular focal lengths. An error here would indicate a lens problem. In any case, your lens or body would have to be repaired by a professional as these repairs require major disassembly and re-calibration.

Nikon N80 error message appears when I turn on camera. Message is f EE in top right corner. New batteries installed did not fix problem


Your camera is telling you that the lens has not been set to it's minimum aperture.

As the camera body controls the aperture, the lens must be set to the minimum (highest number) aperture in order for the camera to be able to select any aperture between maximum and minimum.

If the lens is already set to minimum aperture then please report back for further options, but if my reply has solved your problem then please rate my answer.

I'm getting an error message on my nikon n75.


You didn't specify when the message appears or exactly what it says, so I will take a stab at it. If it is the Err message and it happens as soon as you turn on the camera, chances may be high that the lens you have on it is not set to its smallest aperture opening (ie 22). The camera can't control the automatic exposure settings correctly unless the mounted lens is shut down to its smallest aperture

FE E (flashing) r12 Error


Hey redfoxbrenda,
The error message you are getting means the aperture ring is not locked to the smallest aperture setting, and by this I don't mean set to the smallest aperture the lens must have the ability to be locked to the smallest aperture. It is unlikely that the problem is in the camera body. Some older lenses are just not fully compatible with the newer camera bodies, but if this is the case you should still be able to use the lens in manual and aperture priority mode but with limited capabilities. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Camera flashes "error" when turned on


Check if the aperture is set on anything other than 22. This would generate an error message. the N50 (and other auto Nikon cameras) needs to have the lens aperture set to the smallest -- AutoFocus lenses have a lock on them to lock the aperture at the smallest. Some models, such as the N5, can be set to use either the lens' aperture ring or the camera's command dial to set the aperture, but most simpler Nikon auto cameras can only be set by the camera. Setting the lens to its smallest aperture tells the camera that it can control the lens. If the lens is set to anything else than the smallest aperture, F-- shows up on the camera's LCD, and the camera locks up. Check your camera manual for complete info.
