1.     ERR Error Message

If you encounter the “ERR” on the screen of your Nikon DSLR or on the electronic viewfinder then it could occur because of any of the following reasons:

  • The button that controls the shutter may not have depressed down in the proper manner
  • The camera may have been unable to capture the pictures in the configured settings for the manual exposure hence you can try reconfiguring these settings or simply use the automatic settings.
  • Your Nikon Camera device may have encountered an error with the start up. For this you should try taking out the battery plus the memory card for a good 15 minutes and then switch back on your camera.

2.     F– Error Message

A lot of times, this error message is confined with the Nikon DSLR cameras exclusively because it indicates an issue with the lens. The F—error means that the camera system and the lens are not getting connected properly. You must check your lens to see that it is properly locked into its housing slot. If you cannot get this lens to work properly then you need to try a different lens to check if the error still persists or not. You will then get to know if the issue is with the original lens or the camera device itself.
