Nikon D2Hs fEE on 2 of my lens

->> Hi everyone I am stumped on trying to fix an fEE error on my Nikon D2Hs. When I put on my Nikon 80-200mm F2.8 Ed lens and my Nikon 50mm F1.8 lens I get a fEE Error. I have tried just about everything from doing a factory reset to doing the basic making sure the aperture ring is set to the lowest aperture. I tried calling Nikon but I was on hold for about 25 minutes and got disconnected. I have gone into the menu to the aperture ring settings and that "fixed" it for a bit. However when the camera is set to Manual the aperture was changing all over the place and was shooting at 200 ISO even though the ISO was set at 1,600 ISO. Someone please help me.

->> All of my screws are tight. My friend has been letting me borrow his 400mm F2.8 VR and everything works perfectly with that lens attached.

->> The little spring-loaded tab on the lens mount that interfaces with non-G lenses to confirm the aperture ring position (it moves back and forth along the top of the lens mount on the "professional" cameras) may be broken.

The 400mm f/2.8 VR is a G lens, so it doesn't have anything to couple with the tab in question.

Try pushing the tab around gently with your finger to see if the problem goes away; sometimes it just gets sticky, and sliding it back and forth shakes out the gremlins.

I broke the tab on my old D2H back in 2006; got the fEE error with every single non-G lens, and other weird things happened with any lens. Nikon service sorted it out for me by replacing the broken parts.

->> There is a tab on the the body that has to engage the lens' aperture ring tang. The tab on the body is made of plastic and can sometimes either bend so that it no longer makes contact with the lens' ring or it can break off. If most of your lenses are newer you won't notice it until you mount an older lens. You can locate the tab on the body's mount just under the "K" in Nikon. You should be able to rotate it with your finger and have it spring back when you let go.

->> Clean the contacts -- buttons on lens and plates on body -- with a typewriter eraser you've made into a point with a pencil sharpener. The typewriter eraser is grittier than a regular pencil eraser. The error code says the lens and body aren't talking to each other most likely.

Same t-eraser is used to clean battery contacts.
