When I turn on my camera the screen reads error and shows the film symbol and underneath the film symbol shows min. Even when I put film in my cmera it still reads error. Sometimes the error signal will turn off but it can not read the film it seems like it winds too much of it at once. PLease Help!
You may want to try resetting the wind mechanism. With no film in the camera, close the film door, turn the camera on, push both rewind buttons at the same time. Hold the rewind buttons in for a few seconds and the camera should go into rewind mode. If it does, it will run for a few seconds. When it stops, open the back, re-insert the film and it should wind correctly. If it doesn't, the camera needs repair.

Hey there deliafuentes, I would suggest you check your film to ensure it is seated correctly and fed across to the orange line inside the winding post on the right side of the open back of the camera. If this is not the problem, I would check the settings to ensure you are not in a protection mode which will prevent you from snapping a picture which is not properly focused or without the necessary light required. Try turning off the auto features to test the possibility. Another option is the batteries may have insuffient power to drive the features which you are using. Switch to a new set, preferrably not rechargeable or generic. Good Luck!
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.
