Question about Nikon N50 35mm SLR Camera
Just got my nikon N50 used over e-bay. It didn't come with a manuel and I don't know how to find out what the problem is.
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.
