The FEE means that you need to set the lens to its smallest aperture (largest f/number) and lock if (if it has a lock). You control the aperture by turning one of the command dials on the body, not by turning the aperture ring on the lens.

I every time I think I have the film in my camera loaded there is a word on the little screen that says "FEE". What does that mean!


I'm assuming this is a Nikon camera.

The FEE has nothing to do with film. It indicates that the aperture ring on the lens is not set to its minimum setting (largest f/number). Turn the ring to this setting and, if the lens has a lock, lock it in place. You control the lens aperture from the camera body, the same way as with a lens without an aperture ring.

My Nikon F80 won't load y film automatically, it has a FEE error on the screen but i don't know what that is??


The lens you are using has the aperture ring set to something the camera cannot use. Simply turn the aperture ring to the largest number, usually a 22 or 32. Lock that ring if there is a lock and the fee should be gone.

MY CAMERAS SAYING FEE, its not working


This is found in the F80 manual page 99. it means the CPU Nikkor lens (other than G-Type) is not set to its minimum aperture. Solution: set the lens to the largest f/stop such as f/22. This FEE error is the same for almost all Nikon cameras, be they film or digital.

FEE flashing above where # of pics is showing


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

If you get an "E" after loading the film it means that the camera is still Empty and the film has not loaded properly. The most common cause is that the leader has not been pulled out enough past the red mark. I also like to place a sprocket hole on a sprocket tooth (I assume here that the N80 uses a sprocket drive system like other Nikons). When loaded properly the film should advance to frame #1.
Your "FEE" error is something else again and has nothing to do with the film. Apparently the film was properly loaded if you got that also. "FEE" is an aperture error which you get most commonly when you are in one of the auto modes (P or S) and you don't have the lens aperture set to the smallest aperture (largest number, usually f22). Set the aperture ring on the lens to the highest number.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Can't load the film


Turn the camera on. Open the back. Insert film, pull it across to the red mark. Close the back.

Camera should load automatically.

My camera won't load film


Set your lens to the smallest aperture ( largest number on lens ) f/22 or f/32 and lock it in place with the small latch on the aperture ring. The camera won't operate in auto modes without the lens set there.

What is the "light" or just red color at the bottom near the "open" the back button of my Minolta Maxxum 5 camera?


Elizabeth,

What you are describing is the film chamber lock indicator. Basically, once a film is loaded, you cannot accidentally (or intentionally!) open the camera until the film has been fully rewound. This is to prevent you ruining a film. The red indicator is just to let you know it's locked.

More details are on page 23 of the camera's manual. If you haven't got one, you can download it from here.

FEE error message


To get rid of the pesky fEE just set your lens to f22 or f16 ( depending on what lens you have ) and that is all. You might also want to lock this setting in ( if it is a Nikon lens then the lock is on the side just above the lens aperture ring.
