Having problems with your Nikon D50 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens ?

FE E (flashing) r12 Error

\015 I own the following:\015\012Nikon D50 digital camera\015\012(3) Tamron lens\015\012\015\012Currently, I am unable to use my camera because of the errors (noted in the subject line) I receive on my display panel. \015\012\015\012When 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. \015\012\015\012I have had my camera for two years now and have never had any issues until recently. Do you have any insight or suggestions?\015\012\015\012Brenda\015

Hey redfoxbrenda,
\015\012 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.\012This confirms that distributor service is below zero, they just want you th buy a new one once warranty is over.\012I 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.

Flash Error Hi there, bought this camera about 6 months ago. I'm intermittently getting a problem with the pop-up flash. It pops up fine, but the screen gives me an error telling me it hasn't and won't take any shots. Have to keep switching it off and on and hoping it will work again. Sometimes it's a couple of days before it works again. It will take shots when I switch the camera to the 'no flash' setting, so it does seem to be just the flash. The error says that the flash release is jamming,


The error 5 can mean that there is something blocking the flash from popping up. If it is up but still get the message then you need to check to see if the little black pin/stick that lets the camera know that the flash is up, is not stuck. With the ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

Nikon D40 pictures taken but too dark even in AUTO mode with flash on a bright day. also, some days ago I had the Shutter release error message while taking some photos. After that, the camera is acting weird, pictures sometimes are taken but the picture is always dark, although flash is used and AUTO mode selected. I do not see the error message anymore, but the camera simply do not take pictures properly. I tried formatting, etc with no result.

I have noticed that at times the camera refuses to take a picture, and flashes up an error message which is either 'Err OS' or 'Err 05' (I'm not sure which). How can I pyt this right.
