Question about Nikon D50 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens
I own the following:
Nikon D50 digital camera
(3) Tamron lens
Currently, I am unable to use my camera because of the errors (noted in the subject line) I receive on my display panel.
When I took my equipment into a camera shop, the gentleman changed my F settings to see if that would help. After that didn't work, he took my lens off and put on one of his Nikon lens (no error) and said it was my lenses that were giving me the problem. Through process of elimination, he put my lens on one of the Nikon camera bodies at his store (no error). He then said the problem was in Nikon camera body. None of this makes sense to me; as it seems everything works but my equipment doesn't work together.
I have had my camera for two years now and have never had any issues until recently. Do you have any insight or suggestions?
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!

I had same problem with a D50. I have let it repaired by Nikon Belgium for 120 Euro. Result is unchanged.. still R12. This confirms that distributor service is below zero, they just want you th buy a new one once warranty is over. I just saw that Media Markt Saturn sells the more recent D3000 at 379 in Luxemburg.Confirms that even Nikon is becoming a no-repair brand.
