The "fEE" error indicates that the camera is not communicating with the lens. The lens may not be attached to the camera properly, or if it has an aperture ring, it may not be set to f22 (or the highest aperture number of the lens) - which is normally marked in orange. Select this aperture and lock it using the aperture locking switch to prevent this from occuring again. The fEE error message Set to f22, or the highest aperture number - normally marked in orange. Note the locking switch.

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.

Error code eFF

This normally indicates that you're using a lens with an aperture ring, and the ring is not locked in position. Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and lock it if the lens has a lock. Control the aperture from the body, just as with a lens without an aperture ring.

If the lens doesn't have an aperture ring, could you reply to this post and specify what lens you do have on the D100?

I got and fEE... and figuered out it means error!!

This might be a long shot, but on the lens section of the guide shown below, it notes ,,,,

Non-G lenses will have an aperture ring on the base of the lens where it's attached to the camera. Set this this ring to the smallest aperture (largest number), usually in orange and 16, 22 or 32. There usually is a lock to keep this ring set there, since if it comes off that setting you'll get an error message (fEE) from most cameras.

Full guide is here:

Hope this helps

I received an error message FEE on the aperture

You need to have the installed lens set to it's smallest aperture (largest numerically) when using this camera in most exposure modes.

Error message FEE on aperture

Make sure the lens is mounted on the camer fully. Make sure the aperture ring is set for the largest numbe like 22 or 32 if the lens has it. Some lenses have a lock to lock the aperture ring on the largest number for you. Also make sure the lens you are using is compatible with the F65 camera. if the lens is older then it will not give you any electronic data and the camera will never give you the f information in the viewfinder.

Wont take pictures

The FEE error means that the lens aperture ring is not set to the smallest opening (highest number). The camera body needs it set this way so it has full control of the light reaching the film (or sensor). The lens has a lock mechanism to keep the aperture ring at the smallest opening so you don't accidentally move it when using or changing the lens. On older Nikon lenses, it's a little round button with a white arrow which you push down and rotate to match the arrow with an orange mark. On newer Nikon lenses it is a little slider with a white dot which you can move with your fingernail to match the white with the orange mark.

I had the lens mounted

The FEE display means that your lens aperture ring is not set to the F/22 or F/32 ( whichever is at the end of the rotation ). Mount the lens on the camera, then rotate the aperture ring all the way toward the highest number ( 22 or 32 ). If your lens has no aperture ring, the post on the body at the 8 o'clock position of the lens mount is probably broken. It has to be replaced by a repair shop.
