"F-- on my D90-- Help"


Thornton, US
          

I was at the Desert Museum in Tucson Arizona for a day. I had my D90 and the Sigma 150-500 attached. By the end of the day my camera came up with F--. It happened 3 times. I tried turning the camera to off a couple of times and it fixed the problem. Is it the camera or is it the lens. Could it be because fo the heat outside or the equipment. What should I do, send the lens to Sigma or send the camera to Nikon or is this not a big deal.

Please see this Nikon Technical Note regarding fEE and F-- errors.

Generally speaking, it's probably either a loose or incorrectly fitting mount on the lens/camera or dirty contacts. Because the 150-500 is a fairly large lens, I suspect the former. If it happens again, slightly rotate the lens in place without pressing the lens release button. If there's a slight give and the F-- error disappears, it's a lens mount issue. If it doesn't happen with other lenses, then chances are it's the Sigma. You can send it back to the NY office for repairs or troubleshooting then.

My Plan:

Get out of the car.
Get closer to the subject.
Pick the right mid-tone this time.

Hi Fran,

Try cleaning the electrical contacts on both the lens and the camera body.
Make sure that all of the electrical contacts on the lens project out the same distance.
They are spring loaded and can get jammed in.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty
